I can't believe there's no Foo Fighters thread yet...here's the rundown:

Dave Grohl: Rhythm Guitar, Lead Singer, Drums sometimes (but not enough times)
Taylor Hawkins: Drums, Backing Vocals.
Nate Mendel: Bass
Chris Shiflett: Lead guitar, backing vocals.

Genre: Early stuff is more Grungish, more recent stuff is straight Alt Rock.

Years active: 1995 - Present (12 years)

Studio Discography:

Grohl released the self titled under the pseudonym "Late!", the album was called Pocketwatch. he released this during the time when he was drumming for Nirvana.

Foo Fighters (self titled) (1995)
Colour and Shape (1997)
Nothing Left to Lose (1999)
One By One (2002)

Echoes, Silence, Patience, and Grace (2007)

Singles: "This is a Call", "Everlong", "Learn to Fly", "All My Life", "Times Like These", "Best of You", "DOA", "The Pretender"

My Favorite songs include:
"Big Me" from Self Titled
"Everlong" From Colour and Shape
"Razor" From In Your Honor
"Generator" From Nothing Left To Lose
"Have it All" From One By One
"My Hero" From The Colour and Shape

"Learn to Fly" Nothing Left To Lose.

I've always liked Grohl more as a drummer, but some of his guitar and vocal stuff is OK.

Everlong, however, is one of the greatest songs ever. And a great video.

I'm not too impressed by any of the songs I've heard. They seem to be a band that I don't like as much as someone would think I would. Although, I listened to some of the new album and it wasn't bad.

I'm not a big fan of them, but I definitively like their style.My favorite songs have to be "Monkey Wrench" and "Best of You"

10-17-2007, 12:42 PM
they are ok most the songs i dont like but i do like "DOA"

Boring, boring, and boring! Especially their recent material. Grohl needs to stick to drums.

I like 'em, but if I hear someone play Monkey Wrench on Guitar Hero again something bad's going to happen >_>

I like them. "The pretender" was the song that got me to listen to them.

I've been a Foo Fighters fan for a while now. I just bought the Foo Fighers "Skin and Bones" DVD for my brother this Christmas. I like many songs from them like, "My Hero", "Learn to Fly", "Everlong" and "DOA".

I don't like it when people love the Foo Fighters JUST because they like "Best of You" and "The Pretender". They have better songs then just their popular ones.

Dave Grohl is so awesome. He used to be the drummer for Nirvana.

Psh... I love the Foo Fighters... I envy Dave Grohl... not only is he pretty successful with his music, BUT- he even got to make music with some of his own music idols like King Diamond... hell yes. Now THAT is awesome.

foo fighters rock! i wanna see them live so bad!

I like them. They're not particularly original, and they're certainly nothing special. But I'm a definite fan. Saw them a few years ago now, and they were fantastic.

Pretty good stuff. Everlong is a great song, as is Learn to Fly and The Pretender. Monkey Wrench is addictive as well.

Thank you, for once i agree you with (mostly) I liked their older material

They're alrite.
I prefer their hits, other than that I find their stuff kinda... not-filler filler.

I love Everlong, I downloaded it on my Ipod, but I haven't heard much more from them. I really need to listen to more, I guess.

The Pretender is cool, great upbeat rhythm.

They aren't too bad. Though I agree with Gan about the "not-filler filler" thing. I've never been too big of a fan of Dave Grohl, but I can appreciate him as a musician.

I like Alone + Easy Target, Friend of a Friend, My Hero, and Everlong.

Foo Fighters are love. My brother got me into them, and I just love everything of theirs. They can maintain quality music with serious topics or something, and then balance it out with Hi-larious videos.

[hard, serious songs pairred with funny videos; a definate plus for any band]
