    Default Foo Fighters Play ain't talking about love at movie awards

    It appears the Foo Fighters started to play Ain't Talking 'bout Love between shoots at the MTV Movie Awards.

    There were longer setup times for segments including musical numbers. Eminem didn't have much of set, not so for acts like Mariah Carey and the Foo Fighters, who started playing Van Halen's "Ain't Talkin' 'Bout Love" but stopped before the cameras started to roll, because, said frontman Dave Grohl, "We're forced to play one of our own songs in order to promote our product." This was a rare moment of honesty.
    From the following link: http://seattlepi.nwsource.com/movies...4_mtv06ww.html

    Might not be big news but still something to know.

    That would be something that could get the much wanted Van Halen reunion with Dave to happen.
    Get a band that is current like the Foo Fighters to release a cover song like ATBL, have it get huge airplay, get the kids to dig it and then BAM look how relevant the originals can be once again.

    Its something thats been happening alot of late.

    Huh?

    Look, for me, it's currently 9:23am(EST)... I work overnights, I'm allowed to drink at this hour.

    What's your excuse?

    Please site some examples of "Its something thats been happening alot of late ".

    It happened with Appollo440 when they did a tune with the main riff from A'int Talking 'Bout Love, although they renamed it Ain't Talking 'bout Dubb. At least where I come from, it thrust the original into the limelight. The only thing that annoyed me is that I had to remind everyone that the original song was done by Van Halen and No Apollo 440 did not invent the riff first. In any case it got a couple of friends of mine to finally listen to Van Halen.

    Number 1: Appollo who?
    Number 2: Where are you from that it thrust the original into the limelight?
    Number 3: Why would it thrust the original into the limelight? If a station is playing appollo, why would they also be playing classic VH, specially since its the same song? ATBL is one of the few VH songs the classic rock stations play anyway.

    Yeah, but the sample was speeded-up and it always pissed me off to hear a Helium-version of Ain't Talkin About Love

    Easy, easy there friend...he's from Macedonia.

    The fellow was simply sighting an example, a response that occured in his particular region, not from the U.S.A. and our crappy, consolidated radio.

    No harm, no foul.

    I was originally taking the piss at Eddymon, anyway.

    The Foos have traditionally played the opening riff to ATBL during their live shows. I almost wet myself when I heard that on their Californication tour.

    1: Appollo who? - He actually wrote Apollp 440. Are you blind.

    2: Where are you from? - If you look to the left of his post where it says location it tells you.

    3: Why would it thrust the original into the limelight. - In Australia (where we throw telephones at peoples heads with New York attitude) it certainly created interest in Van Halen among many of my friends.

    The guy was born in New Zealand anyway.

    It cracks me up how Australia claims as there own anyone famous
    even though they were born elsewhere. The Finn Bros, Mel Gibson,
    The Young Bros, Bon Scott, The Gibb Bros etc etc.

    Basically real Aussies all have convict DNA.

    Yeah I am from Macedonia and I am pretty sure that the song was a pretty big hit all over Europe and especially in the UK (as they are/were a British band). Now I didn't like the cover one bit but The European music stations (which I happen to get by satellite) all started to suddenly play the original.
