Foo Fighters have stopped playing their 1995 hit BIG ME at concerts because frontman Dave Grohl is sick of being hit by packets of mints.

In the video accompanying the single, Mentos rain down on the singer and fans try to recreate the scene whenever the group plays the tune live.

Grohl explains, "Every time we played it, it would just start raining Mentos, and them motherf**kers hurt.

"We did a show in Canada and, in the middle of the song, someone threw a pack, and it hit me right in the face. I was so p**sed, I picked it up and said, 'It's been 10 f**king years since that video.'"
