1. During World War II, pilots from all sides reported seeing strange lights and crafts "dancing" in the air during aerial combat. When it was discovered that neither side was responsible for these strange craft--which could turn and accelerate like nothing else in the skies--they were nicknamed "Foo Fighters" after a popular comic strip.

2. A great band lead by former Nirvana drummer, Dave Grohl.
1. WTF dude, were those Foo Fighters?!
2. Are you going to the Foo Fighters concert?

One of the best rock bands of the 90's, Dave Grohl is a genius who learned from another genius named Kurt Cobain. The song Everlong is the best song of all time.
