Foo Fighters Lyrics


While he was drumming with Nirvana, Dave Grohl was
recording original songs at home that never received public
release. Those tapes would become the foundation of the Foo
Fighters, the band he formed in 1995, after the death of
Kurt Cobain. Like Nirvana, the Foo Fighters melded loud,
heavy guitars with pretty melodies and mixed punk
sensibilities with a sharp sense of pop songwriting.

Dave Grohl began playing guitar and writing songs in his
early teens, as well as performing with a variety of
hardcore punk bands. In the late '80s, More...

Review about Foo Fighters songs
What Dave said about it. | Reviewer: Karen W
    ------ About the song Aurora performed by Foo Fighters

Aurora is definitely one of my favorite songs. Lyrically it's a big question mark, but the words sound good and it's a nostalgic look back at Seattle and the life I once had... It's probably one of the heaviest things I've ever written.

Breakup | Reviewer: Patrick
    ------ About the song All My Life performed by Foo Fighters

The first time I heard this song, I was getting off the freeway in my new town after splitting up with my ex. Made me a Foo Fighters fan right then.

    ------ About the song Walking After You performed by Foo Fighters

as a matter of fact, the only one you cant be without is you. My interprtation is the deeper you, the spirit within you, the feeling you begging the ego-you you became, the thinking you, to remember who you were as a child, an eternal soul.

Grohl--always positive | Reviewer: Also Anonymous
    ------ About the song Wheels performed by Foo Fighters

Just wanted to add that Grohl's lyrics always seem very positive. I don't know if he is writing about KC, but he always seems to be writing to him (I am presupposing KC really had the persona that was assigned to him by news reports, I guess. Gloomy or not, I must add that I love Cobain.) I am looking up lyrics to sing to a depressed musician, an old friend of mine who hails from an era before Dave Grohl. Any suggestions? Wheels sounds a dab too vague for this purpose.

    ------ About the song Fraternity performed by Foo Fighters

I haven't heard a song that I've actually liked in a REALLY long time and I thought that maybe I just am not open to the new shit that the computer "music" spams our ears with. But then I heard this song and remembered I have a great taste in music and this is a great song. Foo Fighters rock.

    ------ About the song The Pretender performed by Foo Fighters

There are a lot of good comments on this great song, but, please don't tell me Nirvana "invented" grunge. That's disrespectful to all the musicians that helped inspire Cobain, with the help of his band-mates, to create some great music. For fuck sake, grunge didn't come out of nowhere and appear as Nirvana.

I think this is not what it seems | Reviewer: UrielDHKa
    ------ About the song Stacked Actors performed by Foo Fighters

I don't think this song's about phony actors who want attention. I strongly believe this song is about war, and how the media or the politicians act about it.

But well, I could be wrong, but the chorus reminds me a lot of songs which spoke about war and media in the same way:

"Hey hey now can you fake it,
Can you make it look like we won
Hey hey now, can you take it
And we cry when they all die blonde"

My favorite Foo song | Reviewer: operaticfoofanatic
    ------ About the song Home performed by Foo Fighters

Probably one of the most beautiful songs I have ever heard. Tugs at every part of me and makes my heart ache for my home, Seattle, where my folks are buried.(Been thru divorce, job loss, long term illness-bad times for a few years and am stuck in SC.) This has inspired me to pick up my guitar again after 37 years and even try to write some of my own stuff. Dave is truly beautiful, within and without, and how he turned his life around after Nirvana is my inspiration. Thank you so much my friend and Muse. Just learned this one on my guitar. Got blisters on my fingers now. Peace and love

    ------ About the song Everlong performed by Foo Fighters

It's about Louise Post (Veruca Salt) who he was with at the time.

If he really felt so strongly, why did he cheat on her with numerous others. The "nicest guy in rock" is a fraudulent narcissist, always has been.

    ------ About the song This Is A Call performed by Foo Fighters

I am 15 years old and discovered the Foo Fighters two years ago after falling in love with Nirvana. They are now my favourite band and I have most of their albums. I love Dave Grohl because his songs and his lyrics have potential to be interpreted in different ways. Without analysing too far, listening to the sound of the words and guitars is beautiful. Then you can think about the lyrics and even if they appear to make no sense at all it doesn't matter because there is feeling behind it. Feelings, emotions, and passion and that is why I love the Foo Fighters.
