Just as other musical groups and acts have been doing, the Foo Fighters have reacted to the terror attacks in Paris by canceling performances in light of public safety around Europe.

The group announced on Saturday morning that they would be canceling the remaining four stops on their European tour effectively immediately.

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??

We wouldn't be happy either!

Don't get us wrong, the Emmys were AH-Mazing last night. Andy Samberg had a great opening segment, everyone got a free HBO login and password, and Amy Schumer and Viola Davis both won!

What could have made the night better?!

Well actually, now that we think of it, a Foo Fighters performance would have been pretty epic — and we almost had it too, according to Dave Grohl!
