Don’t even THINK of bringing these banned things into a Foo Fighters show

When the Foo Fighers played Auckland, New Zealand, the other night, fans were created by the obligatory “these items are banned from the venue” list. And while it featured the usual stuff–umbrellas, laser pens, cans, glass containers and so on–there was, on closer inspection, some items that were rather…suspect.

  • Unflattering pictures of Ryan Seaquest
  • Mixtapes in CD format
  • Cream magazines that don’t mention Ted Nugent
  • Derogatory press clippings of Shania Twain
  • Any pencil that’s not a number two (2) pencil

It’s fun to be a Foo, isn’t it?
