Foo Fighters frontman Dave Grohl is having a street named after him in his hometown of Warren, Ohio, thanks to a local petition.

A campaign in Warren, which was led by a local radio station and a police sergeant (?) pushed for the rock star to be honoured - and now the street formerly known as Market Alley will be changed to Dave Grohl Alley.

Grohl is expected to attend the forthcoming dedication ceremony in the city, which has a population of 45,000.
