After Kurt Cobain committed suicide in 1994, was Nirvana remain impossible. Drummer David Grohl soon formed a new band which he named foo, a term often used in World War II for UFOs . Grohl himself took the vocals and played guitar in particular. Foo Fightershas become an extremely popular live band often played at major festivals as a headliner in twenty years. What are the ten best songs of Foo Fighters?
10. White Limo
The seventh album Wasting Light in 2011 was marked by a rough sound. Foo Fighters decided to record the album with only analog equipment in the garage of David Grohl. ‘White Limo’ is Foo Fighters at their loudest, rather than a singalong These are speed and energy. To the point even putting in some power plays Lemmy, lead singer of the legendary hard rock band Motörhead, a star in the music video.
9. All My Life
“All My Life” (2003) was intended as an instrumental. With some difficulty Grohl singing added and sure enough it became a great success, including a Grammy for Best Hard Rock Performance. Also ‘All My Life’ can be seen as a response to the more radio-friendly form of Foo Fighters. Despite the screaming Grohl can never really feel for melody betraying making ‘All My Life’ is completely balanced.
8. Monkey Wrench
With ‘Monkey Wrench’ the second album The Color and the Shape (1997) really starts something to emerge as a private Foo Fighters style. The pace is high, the recognizable riffs and tone, probably with the help of Pixies producer Gil Norton, lighter than Nirvana. The latter is insidious because ‘Monkey Wrench’ is about the end of the marriage between Grohl and Jennifer Youngblood.
7. Learn to Fly
Despite the fame of Nirvana took until the third album There Is Nothing To Lose (1999) Foo Fighters scored a US hit. That ‘Learn To Fly’ hit potential is due to hear the instantly catchy chorus. The video was well received. The band plays a number of roles during a flight which Grohl homosexual purser steals the show.
6. My Hero
‘My Hero’ is a true grunge classic. The song uses many dynamic differences, gritty riffs and a chorus dragging. Content is ‘My Hero’ almost like the theme song of Foo Fighters, Grohl as presents on stage as a kind of anti-hero with a band without pretensions. About the song, the singer it’s about everyday heroes rather than sports or music idols.
The second single from Wasting Light comes close to the perfect Foo Fighters song. It starts as a ballad but ends up as an uptempo rock song the group carefully increases the intensity. As often with Foo Fighters seems to be the text of overcoming adversity. Also ‘Walk’ had another striking video which Grohl plays the same figure as in the Michael Douglas film Falling Down.
4. Best of You
“Best of You” has so far been the most successful single from Foo Fighters (in America it is the only single from the band that has achieved platinum status). At first it seems ‘Best of You’ inconspicuous compared to the rest of the work. But from the first chorus group characteristically begins to repeat the title as a slogan long leading to a pretty emotional effect. Truly a song that a band can finish a great concert.
3. The Pretender
The first single from Echoes, Silence, Patience & Grace (2007) is a typical Foo Fighters rocker that begins as a classic rock ballad but soon turns. True Foo Fighters tricks available, such as a drop in pace once again by popping the use of counter-melodies and lots of guitar layers. Grohl even if someone does not explain his lyrics preferably, The Pretender he described as a political issue. This political turmoil is reflected in the video where the band is threatened by riot police.
2. I’ll Stick Around
“I’ll Stick Around”, the two single from Foo Fighters, the band in 1995 immediately put on the map. The style of the riff and the chorus is undeniably bring back to Nirvana. Moreover, it is not difficult to hear an answer to the deceased Cobain in the text. The best part is that when Grohl also discovered something like a personal style into its own in the last minute and repeats the melody in an emotional way. Sometimes the first songs of the band simply the best.
“Everlong” is on The Color and the Shape, and is a love song all Foo Fighters uptempo rock song knows this as camouflage somewhat. The video became a classic with a scenario in which Grohl passes through different dreams, first as old-fashioned punk with very striking hairstyle and later in a mock scene from the horror film Evil Dead. ‘Everlong’ became a real crowd favorite after the band developed and as the song is often played live acoustic version. “Everlong” is one of three Foo Fighters songs that can be found in the Top 2000 and its classic status is enhanced because it is often bring to play rock games like Guitar Hero and Rock Band.
