THE “WHEELS” COME DOWN FOR THE FOO FIGHTERS
It’s hard to believe the Foo Fighters have released 6 albums already. That in and of itself would be impressive for any band, but toss in the fact that Dave Grohl has aligned himself with umpteen side projects (Probot, Queens of the Stone Age, Them Crooked Vultures, etc) and has continued to crank out hit after hit for the Foos, and it’s pretty damn astonishing. Here we are 13 years later, and the frickin’ drummer from Nirvana has penned so many hits that he probably had to make some pretty tough choices whilst whittling down tracks to be included on the band’s Greatest Hits package, coming November 3. AND the compilation has two new songs on it.
The Foo Fighters certainly aren’t metal, but Grohl’s got undeniable metal cred and an un-fuck-withable level of bad-assery. Even when he’s singing pure pop anthems like the new track “Wheels,” which I just streamed on the band’s MySpace page for the third fucking time in a row because it’s so good.
All hail Dave Grohl.
