Mastodon Guitarist Jabs at Dave Grohl: 'Making R'n'R Safer With Every Red Carpet All-Star Jam'
18
Mastodon guitarist Brent Hinds recently posted an Instagram photo that can easily be interpreted as a clear jab at Foo Fighters frontman Dave Grohl.

The photo shows Grohl in the studio along with the following note - "making rock n roll safer with every red carpet all star jam."

Considering that Mastodon have a generally friendly relationship with Dave, the photo might be Brent poking fun at Grohl; however, the guitarist posted no additional comments regarding the photo.

Just some good fun or Brent crossing the line a bit? Let us know in the comments.

    Stop trying to stir things up UG - you even say in the article that they are good friends. Its just a harmless joke. This site turns into Ultimate Daily Mail some days...

    Ultimate Daily Mail. Fantastic.

    I must admit that the Foo Fighters do make very safe, generic rock and roll. It doesn't really push the envelope--but it doesn't have to, it's still good, fun music.

    I really like them and never noticed how safe the music was until I saw them. During almost every song they did this thing, before the last chorus where they would play quietly and Grohl would get the crowd to sing and then he'd scream "ALRIIIIIGHT" and the band would kick in and finish the song. Seriously, almost every song.

    Now if you use the same logic on a Nickelback related article chaos ensures.

    I've always thought they play simple music in a unique way that no one else does. Not sure if that makes any sense lol

    Dave Grohls cool but it's true.

    I love Dave Grohl just like the next guy (please take that out of context why don't you!) But seriously why the hell does everything on this site have to be about non news in the news section? Better yet why did I click on this?

    I think that its good to have a decent mainstream band to at least represent rock and show that its still alive.

    Joke or not, Hinds is right. Lorde? Zac Brown? Not a lot of edge there... but Grohl usually makes up for it by way of QOTSA in one form or another.

    So what? Safe music... you always learn new things. Maybe FF could be considered "generic" (?) rock n' roll (in these times of internet, maybe), but I love their music. It's a matter of tastes I guess

    Essentially, it doesn't matter, you like it and that's cool. It's stupid to think that every band needs to try to start a revolution or something. I think the Foo Fighters can at least be admired for a recognizable, consistent rock sound.

    Can't 'safer' mean that they more he jams with red carpet starts the more people listen to rock 'n roll so the more attention it gets the more 'safer' it's position gets? With all EDM and everything going on...

    Safer could also be in reference to safety gear. Hard hats, hazmat suits, kneepads. Which i think is a good thing for some bands/artists. Take, oh let's say, Kerry King for example. He should probably wear a helmet when he plays guitar. And when he boards the Short (tour)Bus.
