Foo Fighter frontman Dave Grohl wins the Nice Guy of the Day award: He penned a letter to city council of Cornwall, England after learning a teen metal band by the name of Black Leaves of Envy were told they could no longer play in their hometown because they were just too goddamn loud.

Grohl wrote:

"For musicians that lack the resources to rehearse in professional facilities, a garage or basement is the only place they have to develop their talent and passion. I believe that it is crucial that children have a place to explore their creativity and establish a sense of self through song. The preservation of such is paramount to the future of art and music.”

Amen, Grohl! Read the full note in full above.
