What is it with cars and music?

June 6, 2005
Okay, so we know it's more publicity stunt than actual studio time. But couldn't the Foo Fighters step up to an MDX? Something with a little more room for Dave Grohl's gangly limbs?

The groundbreaking audio system in the Acura TL served as a mobile studio for platinum selling rockers, Foo Fighters. While recording and mixing their latest album, "In Your Honor" in 5.1 surround sound, the band found themselves without the DVD-Audio capabilities to listen to the cuts. One of the band's mix engineers Elliot Scheiner, who collaborated with Acura on the TL audio system, offered up an Acura TL.

"We were totally psyched about the TL," said Dave Grohl, lead singer. "This car rocks - like our new album," Grohl said, apparently without irony.

The Foo Fighters two-disc album will hit stores on June 14th with a tour to follow.
