Dave Grohl, Foo Fighters

Um, hey music lovers? Foo Fighters is a name—not a call to action.

It's a message that apparently escaped a U.K. fan who turned up at the rockers' London concert last night and proceeded to get a little too rowdy for frontman Dave Grohls liking.

So what happened? Put it this way: don't pity the Foo. Pity the guy that interrupts their concert.

"No, no, no, no, no, stop. You don't f--king fight at my show, asshole," Grohl admonished a section of the crowd during his set at the iTunes Festival after halting midway through a song to stop the budding melee.

"Who's fighting right now? Who's fighting? Let me see you…Hey, in the striped shirt, look at me, look at me. Get the f--k out of my show right now," he said, to cheers from the crowd, before delivering what we can only hope becomes a henceforth legendary rock quip:

"You don't come to my show and fight, you come to my show and dance, you asshole!"

Nobody throws a (monkey) wrench into Grohl's plans and gets away with it.

"I don't put up with that bullshit. You people come here to have a good time and that guy can f--k off!" he screamed, before, ever the consummate pro, calmly picking up his song right where he left it off.

And that, folks, is how it's done.
