Foo Fighters Steps In For Pantera Following German Dismissal.

Two German music festivals have wasted no time in replacing metal legends Pantera. The Rock Am Ring and Rock Im Park events dropped Pantera from their lineup due to some apparent Nazi and white supremacist comments made by frontman Phil Anselmo in the past.

Less than a day later, it’s Foo Fighters stepping in to save the day. And it was the Dave Grohl-led band- not the festivals- that made the announcement. “Germany, we’ll see you Friday, June 2nd,” wrote the band on their Instagram page.

Almost a month after the group announced it would be “a different band going forward,” Foo Fighters has confirmed appearances at multiple events in 2023. Among their performances are stopping at Boston Calling on Memorial Day weekend and Harley Davidson Homecoming in Milwaukee in July.

This Is Why Nicolas Cage Loves Black Metal Music 


Nicolas Cage loves black metal music. But before you criticize, you might want to hear his explanation.



He said, quote, "[My son] Weston got me into the black metal music that is popular in Norway. [It] gets a pretty bad rap because of the church burnings and so on, but the music itself came from classical music.. .



"I think that's the root of metal, which is interesting as it springs from BachWagner, and Beethoven. You can't say that about so many forms of music, as so much of it came from gospel and African music . . .



"I think there's something to be said for that."
