    Default Foo Fighters are going on hiatus :( :what you guys think?

    Foo Fighters Say So Long, Neil Young Stomps at Global Citizen Festival
    Dave Grohl delivered more warnings that the Foo Fighters will be staying away for a very long time at the massive Global Citizen Festival in New York's Central Park on Saturday, flatly telling the estimated 60,000-plus fans that "this is it."

    "Without making a big deal out of it, we don't have any shows after this. This is it, man," the frontman said before the band ripped into "Learn to Fly," their fourth song of the night. "Honestly, I don't know when we're gonna do it again... and this is the perfect place to do it."

    The place was the Great Lawn. The view for Grohl and company was a sea of devotees and the NYC skyline about 25 blocks to the south. The free, ticketed event that inspired the group was spearheaded by the Global Poverty Project, an advocacy group that works to end extreme poverty. Somali-Canadian singer K'Naan and indie rockers Band of Horses opened with brief sets.



    Foo's intensely all-in performance kicked off with "Times Like These" -- "This song was written for nights like this," Grohl mused, and the night was dotted with stadium anthems like "All My Life," "My Hero" and "Best of You."

    Before set closer "Everlong," Grohl's message to the leaping, arm-waving masses contained a hopeful opening, "I don't know when, but we'll see you again."

    So I want to know what you guys think of this.

    I am very devastated to hear this news. Foo Fighters were definitely a band that changed rock music and were part of what it is today. They were truly an amazing band that changed many people's lives. I really hope that isn't an official break up but just a temporarily break from music. I really appreciated what Dave Grohl and his mates did and thank them for it. They truly were great and I wish they good luck in the future and hope for their return.

    I don't really care. The Foo Fighters were pretty mediocre and far as modern rock goes. But they were a prominent post-grunge act, and it is somewhat sad to see them go.

    They'll be back for sure, but it probably won't be for another 8+ years.

    Not that bothered, an average rock band going on hiatus. Dave's a better drummer than singer anyway.

    I've never rated them anyway. They have prehaps two songs that I like and that's it.

    Well, I'm no rock expert but I did like their songs quite a bit, so I'm a little sad to hear they will not be making anything new for a while. Though, to be honest I haven't listened to all their albums and I only really paid attention to one or two so I still have a lot left to discover, but it sucks for the real fans.
