Kirk Miller of Rolling Stone quized Foo Fighters frontman Dave Grohl and asked him when he developed his fascination for metal music. “When you’re thirteen and listening to punk, the aggressive nature of music can sway you to the dark side,” Grohl said. “I went over to my friend Jimmy’s house one day and found out he’d been listening to Iron Maiden. I was pissed because he had deserted me on our new mission of punk rock. But it opened up a new world. We discovered Metallica, Motorhead, Slayer. Plus, it was kind of fun to pretend you worshiped the devil.” Rollingstone.com has since removed the article.
