Foo Fighters rocker Dave Grohl hates playing hit song BIG ME live, because fans bombard him with hard mint sweets.

The video for the 1996 track was a parody of the American commercials for the candy brand Mentos - and Grohl was forced to stop playing it live because of the pain inflicted by nightly mint showers.

He says, "We did stop playing that song... because, honestly, it's like being stoned. Those little things are like pebbles - they hurt.

"I wish they were like marshmallows or something."
