Default The Dave Grohl Band...? o_o

Download festival posted this on their facebook

I'm confused and scared at the same time, and I probably shouldn't have made this topic because it's probably nothing but a joke

If you were British you would know that it's a joke. I'm not sure what the joke is with the DG band though.

I took it to be them referencing Long Road to Ruin but they got the name wrong

I know it's stupid but I looked at the real line up before I looked at this one and when I did look at it I was too busy looking for "The Dave Grohl Band" that I didn't realize all the other bands were fake until I posted this >_>

Apart from the DG band all would just not go down at Donington sorry Download.

I would suspect the joke is that how many people would be on stage for a DG band. You only have to put on Scuzz tv or Kerrang tv and you will see at least 2 videos an hour containing DG that's not including their top 20 Foo Fighters or Top 10 DG lists which seem to be on every other week.

For a non fan its must get on your nerves because he seems to be everywhere.

A great source of amusement at DG House is Dave Grohl spotting. But at least we luffs him

Taylor wrote "where is Elastica?" on his kick drums a few years ago.

it's on their performance on Jools Holland in 99, hard to see though. - http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=rMpYwCNDgLk

maybe could be something related.

EDIT: you can see it at around 1:40
