Dave Grohl isn't just the leader of bubblegum grunge group Foo Fighters; he's also the latest enemy of the Uncanny X-Men. When a trailer for the upcoming Wolverine and the X-Men cartoon appeared online earlier this week, fans noted the use of music by Sevendust and Foo Fighters as happy proof that something, finally, had replaced the embarrassing hair metal of the '90s cartoon series. Little did they know that that replacement wasn't going to last too long.
Well, the problem with using something like "Best of You" by Foo Fighters for your trailer is that you generally have to pay for its use. Otherwise, you may have to pull the trailer from your official promotional site for the series when the band notices, and YouTube pages where the trailer was will disappear one by one, replaced by messages reading "This video is no longer available due to a copyright claim by The Foo Fighters."
Does this mean that Grohl would rather get paid for his work than allow the kids to see their favorite superheroic mutants fight crime, or are his motives much more altruistic? Considering the trailer shows Professor Xavier get blown up as a cheap motivation for his former students to become depressed and out for revenge, perhaps he's simply saving the audience from another lame attempt at grim and gritty superheroes, straight from the late 1980s.
