FOO FIGHTERS' "Banned Items At Shows" List Features Some Hilarious Items

We've referred to Dave Grohl as the coolest motherfucker in music before. He's taken on the Westboro Baptist Church, gets in mosh pits for Metallica, and tops fans' beers off from stage. Foo Fighters, as a band, in general, don't take themselves too seriously, and have been known to have fun with promoters. For example, a recent rider for the band has a detailed coloring book in it.

So it should come as no surprise itself that the band's "Prohibited Items" list contains a few fun Easter eggs as well. Among the more expected items like laser lights and bags of a certain size, we have some more unique items like "Pirated VHS tapes of Land of the Lost, the series" and "Derogatory press clippings of Shania Twain." The image is below, and if it's a little hard to read, we itemized the list directly below it.
