Imagine Dragons, the insanely popular band that just seems to crank out hit after hit, has recently become the butt of many jokes, most recently being called the Nickelback replacement for most hated band by Slipknot's Corey Taylor.

Imagine Dragons frontman Dan Reynolds didn't take the criticism sitting down and wrote an effective Tweet calling out all of those who have maligned the band over the years, including The 1975 and Foster The People.

But today, Foster The People's Mark Foster took to Twitter to offer up a sincere apology to Dan and the band for things that he may have said in the past.  

In the Twitter open apology, Foster showed his admiration for Reynolds and the good work he does outside of creating smash hits with Imagine Dragons.

"I have been burdened by something I feel I need to amend," Foster opened his apology. "I would like to apologize to Dan Reynolds and his band Imagine Dragons. In a passing moment last year, I let some words come out of my mouth that don't reflect who I am or what I stand for. When Dan posted his open letter speaking from the heart about how the negative words from other artists had affected him, it convicted me. He's right."

Foster went on to applaud Reynolds' humanitarian efforts. "Everything that I have read about what Dan has been doing as a humanitarian has been moving," he continued. "I believe he's one of the good guys. It takes a lot of courage to stand for something. Building something is infinitely harder than destroing something."
