Foo Fighters: 'MTV Awards Don't Mean Sh-t'
Drummer Taylor Hawkins of Foo Fighters recently gave MTV Awards a mild bashing, saying that although they are nice as a recognition, VMAs essentially "don't f--king mean sh-t." "I make my living playing rock 'n' roll, I'm not going to complain about it," Hawkins briefly told TMZ. "Who cares, those awards are nice but they don't f--ing mean sh-t, it doesn't matter." In a separate Huffington Post interview, 30 Seconds to Mars fronman Jared Leto discussed the band's latest Best Rock Video award at this year's VMA, pointing out the importance of including rock music on MTV. Interestingly enough, the acceptance wasn't even aired during the broadcast. "Rock music deserves a place there," Leto said. "I don't think people will be bored by it. But we live in a world right now that seems to want to be anesthetized, that seems to want to just feel one thing. It's this slight sedation." Other rock figures who touched on the matter of this years VMA include Dave Grohl and his response to "rock is dead" comments, as well as Queens of the Stone Age and their announcement of twerk-free show in New York, a clear jab at Miley Cyrus' performance. Should rock music get more MTV coverage? Let us know in the comments.
