Dave Grohl has another fall at Florida Foo Fighters show

Dave Grohl of Foo Fighters is certainly no stranger to falling as we can all remember when he famously shattered his leg during a show in Sweden in 2015. Is that going to change anytime soon? Nope! Not when you rock as hard as he does!

During their set at Welcome To Rockville in Jacksonville last week, Grohl can be seen strumming and walking along the stage when suddenly he loses his balance over a speaker. Once back to the mic he addressed the crowd, “I almost just broke my f***ing leg over there…the way I look at it, if you come that close to breaking your f***ing leg, that means it’s a good show!”

Dave is so freaking awesome.

Watch the video posted to a Dave Grohl fan account below!

WATCH: Metallica Cover A-Ha’s ‘Take On Me’

During a show in Oslo, Norway at Telenor Arena on May 2nd rob and Kirk of Metallica did a surprise cover of A-Ha’s ‘Take On Me’.

The two have been known to play all sorts of different covers through this tour but as reported by Guitar World, this one was even more special as it was to pay tribute to the well-known eighties synth-pop Norwegian act.

It’s slightly odd but also awesome!! Check it out!

Lady Antebellum Mess Up National Anthem Before Playoff Hockey Game

Country group Lady Antebellum had the honor of singing the National anthem prior to Game 5 between the Winnipeg Jets and Nashville Predators. They sounded great with the exception of one minor lyric hiccup.

If you skip to the 1:13 mark you can hear some confusion between Charles Kelley and Hillary Scott on whether they should be singing ‘proudly’ or ‘gallantly’. A few of the players got a kick out of it.

Honestly though, haven’t we all had that moment? Well, I guess we’re not singing it before a playoff hockey crowd.

Alligator Seen Crossing the Road in Hillsborough County

As Fox 13 reported, Motorist Nathan Lawson was just one of several people who captured this insane sight in Hillsborough County on Tuesday.

An alligator was just casually crossing the road at the intersection of Martin Luther King, Jr. Blvd. and Williams Rd. in Seffner around 11:30 a.m. The Snapchat caption was more than appropriate, “Only in Florida”!!!

Apparently the combination of warm weather and a coming mating season is bringing them around more. Keep your eyes peeled!

Jimmy Kimmel Live ‘Mean Tweets’ – Avengers Edition

Odds are you’ve probably seen ‘Avengers: Infinity War’ because it just set the record for the biggest opening weekend EVER with $250 million! Despite the popularity though, the Avengers are still subject to Jimmy Kimmel Live’s ‘Mean Tweets’ and they are hilarious.

My personal favorite: “Benedict Cumberbatch always looks like he’s had an allergic reaction to bad shrimp.” BAHAHAHA

Brendon Urie of P!ATD plays with puppies and answers questions

It’s been an exciting few months for Panic! At The Disco fans. We finally received a new single from the band, ‘Say Amen (Saturday Night)’, we learned of the new album, Pray For The Wicked, due out June 22nd AND  a tour stopping in Tampa August 1st!

Does any of that really compare to this though!?  A VIDEO JUST RELEASED OF BRENDON URIE PLAYING WITH PUPPIES?!

No. No it doesn’t.

We have the folks at Buzzfeed to thank for this gem. Urie plays with the pups and answers questions about everything from his time on Broadway to the new album!

They had previously done the bit with Fall Out Boy and it was equally amazing.

Here’s the video for ‘Say Amen (Saturday Night)’, just in case you were still missing out on this awesome.

Crunchwraps? Mexican Pizzas? Baja Blast?!

There are lots of reasons to love Taco Bell but would you use $100,000 to secure a lifetime supply? Georgia Tech freshman, Rishab Jain would. On a recent college edition episode of Jeopardy, Jain told host Alex Trebek that he would spend the $100,000 grand prize on a lifetime supply of Taco Bell.

Hey @tacobell, would 100,000 #TripleMeltBurritos be enough to last Rishab a lifetime? pic.twitter.com/aYu0PS4yln — Jeopardy! (@Jeopardy) April 18, 2018

Now unfortunately Rishab did not take home the grand prize and get his lifetime supple, but Taco Bell still decided to hook it up for me. According to People.com,  Taco Bell reps caught wind of the episode and decided to send him a $500 gift card. JEAAALOOUS.

College can feel like a lifetime. We'll help you get through it, Rishab. pic.twitter.com/CRSorPyO0w — Taco Bell (@tacobell) April 20, 2018

Anybody hoping something rad like this happens in Tampa tonight?!

As Kygo closed out his main stage set at Coachella Friday, he stopped and spoke to the crowd, “Coachella, I think most of you guys have heard, but today is a very sad day for music…”

Screens behind the DJ then lit up with pictures of Avicii and Kygo performed his song ‘Without You’ as a tribute to a musician gone too soon and too young.

Avicii passed away Friday in the Oman capital of Muscat. We do not yet know the cause of death.

Starbucks debuts new ‘cold foam’

Recent bad publicity hasn’t stopped Starbucks from thinking of new concoctions. As of yesterday, that new creation is ‘cold foam’. The cold foam is similar to steamed milk but thicker so that it can float across a cold beverage.

The real excitement about this lands on Harry Potter fans because it is now even easier for them to create their own version of the popular ‘butterbeer’ which can normally only be found at Universal Orlando Resort.
