Foo Fighters Mock Fans' Worst Fears With Hilarious 'Band Announcement' Video

The band responds to the rumors circulating about their possible breakup.

OK, the Foo Fighters won't be breaking up. And there won't be any Dave Grohl solo projects.

Grohl and his fellow Foo Fighters have masterfully trolled us all with a 24-hour tease of an "official band statement," which caps off days of frenzied social media chatter on a band implosion.

The Foos have now shared a seven-minute-long video in which Grohl plays the part of a frontman-turned-douche who believes the hype surrounding his solo Grammys performance and announces his new career path. The rocker tries his hand at EDM and cranks out a cheesy ballad: "I want to be free, free to be … me. Can't you see, now it's just me / And now, I'm free, to be me, just me. Not those other three, or four. Or how many more."

Meanwhile, his bandmates assemble for the video to discuss potential candidates for the vacant frontman position, with Prince, Justin Bieber, Liam Gallagher among those touted for the short list.

Then, just in case folks didn't catch the joke, the band auditions Nick Lachey with the song "Everlong." Still not sure if it's a gag? Well, the "official band statement" is revealed at the end.

"For the millionth time, we're not breaking up. And nobody's f—king going solo!"

Watch the video below.
