Whether you’re “Naruto” running your way to Area 51 or watching the dumpster fire that is ‘Storm Area 51’ from the comfort of your computer screen, everyone is doing something.
Cue the Foo Fighters who decided to get in on the non-holiday by giving us some jams.
On Friday (Sept. 20), the Washington-founded act unleashed their 00050525 Live in Roswell live EP to celebrate the Facebook-created event.

“This was a special 10th-anniversary show held at a disused Air Force base close to the site of the supposed Roswell UFO incident in 1947,” the band posted online.

Since jokes tend to get out of hand quickly, millions of people RSVP’d to the “Storm Area 51, They Can’t Stop All of Us” event which prompted the Air Force to get involved. They even warned attendees that they “always stand ready to protect America and its assets.”
