The Foo Fighters have been nominated for 17 MTV Music Video Awards but have only won the coveted “Moonman” trophy twice. In 1996, they won Best Group for “Big Me” and in 2011 they won Best Rock Video for “Walk”.
Here’s Dave Grohl, Nate Mendel, Chris Shifflett and Pat Smear in 2011 proudly accepting the award for “Walk”.
In case you ever wonder where these awards end up lets first use a quote by drummer Taylor Hawkins when asked about losing an award to Thirty Seconds to Mars. Hawkins said:
“I don’t care man, I make a living playing rock’n’roll. I’m not going to complain about anything, I mean, those awards are nice, but they don’t fucking mean shit.”
On a recent visit to the Foo Fighters Studio 606 in San Fernando Valley, California I quickly realized Hawkins and the Foo’s really don’t give a crap!!! Look where one of the “Moonman” awards ended up.
The award has become the most beautiful historic toilet paper holder in the world!!!
The Foo Fighters and Grohl’s previous band Nirvana always have always found a cool way to never take themselves too seriously. The award in the bathroom I’m sure isn’t a sign of disrespect towards MTV but rather a funny and awesome way to share it with visitors!!!
