Dave Grohl on 'Gangnam Style' and his band's "stupid" name

Foo Fighters' Dave Grohl premiered his 'Sound City: Real to Reel' documentary at the South By Southwest Film Festival this week and had a chat with the audience before the screening.

During the crowd interview and speech, Grohl talked about the origins of his band's name and joked "Finding a good band name is still the hardest f**king part... Foo Fighters is the stupidest f**king name."

The rocker also opened up about his love for Psy's 2012 viral hit, 'Gangnam Style', and announced to the room: "I can truthfully say out loud that 'Gangnam Style' is one of my favoutite songs of the past decade."

Grohl spoke briefly about the tragic death of his Nirvana bandmate, Kurt Cobain, adding: "When Kurt died I was lost, I was numb. The music I had devoted my life to had now betrayed me. I turned off the radio, I put away my drums."
