The Foo Fighters are, in their own words, "Super psyched" to be nominated for six Grammy Awards, including Album Of The Year.
Foo's will be performing on the programme, as well looking real nice in slack pants and dress up stuff for the big night. The Grammy's go out live in this Sunday, February 12th on CBS in the USA and will no doubt be repeated in the UK a day or so afterwards. Or you can watch it streamed live in its entirety internationally at Grammy's official website: http://www.grammy.com/live

Add into that their Brit nomination for Best International Group in this year's Brit Awards and the Foos are a happy bunch indeed! Watch the awards event live on 21 February!
There is no let-up for the hardworking Foo Fighters, who waste no time starting off the new year announcing new single 'These Days' and receiving a Brit Award nomination for Best Group.
Described by Dave Grohl as his single proudest songwriting moment, 'These Days' is the fourth single from the band's multi-platinum, multiple award nominated, Worldwide #1 album 'Wasting Light' (Roswell/Columbia).
'Wasting Light' has been a global chart fixture since its AprilĀ 2011 release. The massive sold-out world tour has seen the Foos headline the Isle of Wight and T In The Park music festivals as well as hosting two sold-out nights at the gigantic Milton Keynes Bowl, which saw the band produce a spectacular 'Foo's Love-In', playing both greatest hits and new tracks for nearly three hours and leaving each night's crowd of 60,000 fans baying for more.
During Foo Fighters' recent record-breaking down under stadium tour, the band confirmed their status as one of the hardest rocking bands in the world, when their gig in Auckland, New Zealand literally caused Earthquake-like tremors to be picked up by the nearby monitoring station! Rock and Roll!
'These Days' will be released on digital format only on 20th February 2012 and you can check out the video here:
