The Foo Fighters Were Uninvited To The Emmys For Wanting To Play Their Emmy-Winning Music

This… doesn't make much sense to us.

So you know how the Foo Fighters were originally invited to be the first rock band to ever play at the Emmys thanks to their two Creative Arts Emmys they won?

Well, it turns out that Dave Grohl & Co. were uninvited from playing the awards show because they wanted to perform music from their HBO special Sonic Highways.

Apparently, the Academy had no problem with the band playing songs from the limited series — since it literally won awards and all — but FOX took issue with the Fighters not wanting to play their other song Learn to Fly.

After Dave refused to agree to the unrelated set list, he and his bandmates were promptly banned from performing and then refused to attend the event at all!

What do U think about FOX's crazy decision to cancel the Foo Fighter's performance??
