Foo Fighters - The Last Rock and Roll Band?

Attached is the latest single from Foo Fighters:



Some thoughts about what we just heard:

  • Check out that bridge!  Sounds like vintage Heart, with a touch of Stevie Wonder's "Superstition" for good measure
  • Lyrics are really strong here - love the story
  • Check out the Rick Nielsen camo at the 3:00 mark.  I love that so bleeping much.  
  • How many guitars does one band need?  Exactly!
Nobody is making music like this anymore, at least not at this quality.   Music like this was part of what I grew up listening to - solid singing and music, built around a simple guitar riff as the cornerstone.

The guitar riff - man, how I miss that.

I can't wait to hear the rest of the album and see who the cameo guests are.  If anything like the first effort here, I don't think I'll be disappointed.

  1. That's a two-fer right there! I still have my Cheap trick album cover covered with Rick Nielsen picks ( probably 50 of them) that I caught at a concert in the song Surrender. It is autographed and a prized possession! Also a favorite concert of mine was the foo fighters and red hot chili peppers where Dave walked off stage playing a guitar, proceeded to keep his mic. On, and went and got a beer while still playing and talking to all he passed along the way. Awesome drummer, guitarist and singer. Rock and roll.
