Representatives for two summer festivals in France issued a joint statement in response to controversial comments frontman Jesse Hughes made last week.
While they'll now forever be synonymous with a senseless tragedy, Eagles of Death Metal proved a decade ago that they'll always stand for nothing but love.
Hughes said his suggestion that security guards at the Paris venue had prior knowledge of the terrorist attack in November were "unfounded" and "baseless."
"Hughes spread some very grave and defamatory accusations against the Bataclan teams," the Paris venue's owners said. "Hundreds of people were saved thanks to [security's] intervention."
Jesse Hughes said several members of El Bataclan's security staff weren't at the venue the night of the Paris attacks because 'they had a reason not to show up.'
