Seriously,

In the whole soapbox history. I never heard any praise or anyone fans of the Foo Fighters. While my interest in Foo Fighters faded when Pat Smear left or pretty much after "There's Nothing Left To Lose" album. My interest Picked up after Skin and Bones live album. Maybe because Pat Smear re-joined.

hits:
"All My Life"
"Best of You"
"Everlong"
"The Pretender"
"My Hero"
"Learn to Fly"
"Times Like These"
"Monkey Wrench"
"Big Me"
"Breakout"
"Long Road to Ruin"


New Album Wasting Light is one there better albums in a long time.. I personally rank it 3rd best...

Latest single is " Walk"


Dave wrote "Walk" sitting on the floor writting by the coffee table and saw his daughter starting to walk. Hence where how the song Walk came from.

The album The Colour and the Shape one the top 25 best albums of the 90's in my opinion. Many of you might not like Foo Fighters or their sound, but Dave Grohl is amazing artist. He could easily just joined The Heartbreaker and be apart of Tom Petty's band instead the Foo Fighters.

not a fan but they do have some amusing videos and Grohl seems not to take himself too seriously and comes across as a decent enough guy

Everlong is a great song though.

They've got 3-4 passable tunes but the rest is MOR rawk-ballad wank. The American equivalent of Stereophonics.

I liked the 1-2 of Generator then Breakout back in the crazy summer of 2000, and some of the early singles were good, but generally they're paaaaainfully dull. A real Gary Neville band, I bet he loves them.
