Foo Fighters frontman Dave Grohl has dedicated a handful of tracks on the band's new album IN YOUR HONOUR to his time spent on the US election campaign trail with defeated Democrat John Kerry.

The former Nirvana drummer decided to support Kerry when he discovered one of his songs was being used in George W Bush's political rally before November's (04) election - and he took the opportunity to clarify his own, vehemently anti-Bush leanings.

He recalls, "I went out and supported John on his campaign trail, only because George W. Bush was using one of our songs at his rallies.

"There's no way of stopping the president playing your songs, so I went out and played it for John instead.

"The album was inspired by how passionate people were to make a change."
