If you’re a 90s kid, chances are, you're familiar with American rock band, Foo Fighters. For those who are unacquainted, the Foo Fighters was founded in 1994 by former Nirvana drummer, Dave Grohl. They're responsible for hits like "Everlong," "Learn to Fly," and "Walking After You." Since then, the band has sold more than 12-million albums worldwide.
In their recent music video for the song titled, “No Son of Mine”, the actors, as well as the location may look oddly familiar. That’s because, they’re a local motorcycle club based here in the country, Anghel ng Lansangan (angels of the street), and the location was Doña Remedios Trinidad in Bulacan.
Of course, it was shot well before the recent ECQ Season 2.
According to Mike Eijansantos, also an avid motorcyclist, who filmed the video gonzo-style, a local Sony Records executive contacted him about the project. It was only after the project was finished that they found out the footage would be used by the Foo Fighters for their video uploaded on the band’s official Youtube channel.
Anghel ng Lansangan, is one of the oldest motorcycle clubs here in the Philippines.
After it was posted on the band’s official social media pages, the band could only say this: “Thanks for taking us on a ride through your beautiful countryside. Can't wait to rock out in person!!!” – and that’s with a triple-exclamation point from the Foo Fighters themselves.
