The Foo Fighters' Dave Grohl in Tokyo, where we assume the food is interesting enough for the band. FooFighters.com

Tour riders, the extensive lists of do's and don'ts that performers provide venues with prior to their appearances, are always a great to read and chuckle over. The Smoking Gun, that court-document-obsessed website, brings us a great one from the Foo Fighters, who warn caterers against serving boring food and urge them to "think outside of the box as we consider the CHICKEN BREAST":

Here are some cool things to do with meat and meat examples:

  • Fried turkey, fried chicken, fried anything, really
  • Sausages, veggie sausages. Big-ass kielbasas that make men self-conscious. Any sort of tubed meats. Maybe a night of "Fair Foods"
  • Cornish game hens
  • Meat—in loaf form. Turkey meatloaf
  • Bacon. I call it "God's currency." Hell, if it could be breathed, I would
  • Bacon in any form is great. Not as an entrée, but just in general

Sorta gives a new meaning to "There goes my hero," no? [via Gawker]

After the jump, what will and won't get you a hug from the Foo Fighters' bassist.
