One of the best fucking rock band right now. I just love all the shit they've been putting out.
This year they released their seventh album Wasting Light. They recorded the whole fucking album on tape in Dave's garage. Pat Smear is officially a full time member again, Krist Novoselic played bass on one song and the producer was Butch Vig. Ex-Nirvana members rule!
They also did some cool music videos, a documentary (out now on DVD and Blu-ray), a garage tour and a worldwide run from spring.
Such an amazing band. Please share your thoughts!
Why I love the Foo Fighters -
If we're talking about mainstream rock bands, Foo Fighters are the cream of the crop. They're the ultimate singles band, they play every show like it's their last, and for the most part, their albums are fucking solid. I liked Wasting Light, and I hope they actually pay a show this tour in which I can see them. Fuck Courtney Love.
Saw them in Vancouver at the end of October, and it was awesome!
They definatly give you your money's worth concert wise, they played for 3 hours!
The show was alot of fun. I was stuck in seats, and I can't stand being at a concert in seats, but it was still ALOT of fun!
Wasting light is their best release since "The Colour and the Shape".
they put on a helluva show this time around, but there were waaaay too many extended singalongs/interludes/whatever throughout the show. It reminded me of what Green Day does now. Just play the song, no one needs you to add3 minutes of nonsense to them. I also could have done without the guitar solo off...silly. Could have heard 4 or 5 more rare songs or something instead.
Always hate posting things like this but, it sure would be cool if I had a high quality mp3 of Darling Nikki... cooler than paying $100+ for the single it appeared on. Thanks in advance, for what? I don't know, nudge nudge, wink wink.
I used to dislike the Foo Fighters, but only because I was irritated at the overplay of The Best of You when that came out. I don't mind that song but I've grown to like them now. Wasting Light is a good album, love The Colour and The Shape.
Heard good things about this album. Oh and they're headlining Leeds. Maybe I should go for two nights after all.
