In Interview/Article ''The Chosen Foo'' by Andy Greenwald.

In the article, Greenwald, not only discuss The Foos' new album, but their new and their OWN, state of the art, custom built recording studio in Encino, Califonia, Studio 606. While The Foos show off their new high tech digs, Greenwald states, quote:

''But back at (Studio) 606, (Dave) Grohl is merely screaming with laughter. (Taylor) Hawkins, clean and sober but still manic, is showing Dave his favorite Freddie Mercury outfits from a dog-eared 1970's Queen tour program and suggesting which might be best for a photo shoot. The skin tight jester costume? Or the schoolboy knickers, sans shirt and shoes?''

Then during the interview with Dave Grohl, Grohl discusses his admiration for the music of My Chemical Romance (and of Queen!), and Grohl goes on to say...

''The beauty of the melody in that song

(by MCR) ''Helena"? Oh my God, that could be a fucking Queen song!''
