My Hero Lyrics - Foo Fighters

Review The Song (38)



too alarming now to talk about
take your pictures down
and shake it out
truth or consequence, say it aloud
use that evidence race it around

there goes my hero
watch him as he goes
there goes my hero
he's ordinary

don't the best of them bleed it out
while the rest of them peter out
truth or consequence, say it aloud
use that evidence race it around

there goes my hero
watch him as he goes
there goes my hero
sponsored links
he's ordinary

kudos my hero
leaving all the best
you know my hero
the one that's on

there goes my hero
watch him as he goes
there goes my hero
he's ordinary

there goes my hero
watch him as he goes
there goes my hero
he's ordinary

response to tman and his completely ignorant and obnoxious comment. | Reviewer: Anonymous | 12/15/11

"tman", do you have any idea what mental illness can drive you to do?? kurt cobain didnt want to die, he, along with basically everyone else who takes their own life as a result of a mental illness such as bipolar or depression is trying to escape the pain in the way that they look at themselves. my dad took his own life leaving behind me, my mum and my brother and while it completely cuts me up inside, i dont hold resentment or anger towards him, i save that for the demons he battled. while everyone is responsible for their own actions, those with mental illnesses are heroes for battling against them, whether they win the fight or not. who are you to judge whether or not kurt was a hero. i hope you read this and discontinue your ignorant and hurtful comments.

Duh | Reviewer: hankmcp | 12/16/11

It's about Kurt Cobain. You can site any interview with Grohl about it. However; music is what you make of it, it has a different meaning for everyone, up en to interpretation. Thats the beauty of it.

Real heroes | Reviewer: Superm4ssive | 11/28/11

Can't say much about the artist's vision for the song, but to me it's about real heroes, who (in my experience) really are just ordinary folk who under extraordinary conditions accomplish extraordinary feats. To me the song serves to remind us of the spaces in between the panels, remind us that real heroes have real lives and real problems, and likewise, that anyone, no matter how mundane or ordinary or real, is capable of being someone's hero.

My hero | Reviewer: Anonymous | 11/23/11

My hero is my childhood friend that always was there when I needed him. He was one of the few who actually tried to help me when I was being bullied. He was always nice to everyone. This summer he died from cancer at the age 15. This song has helped me a lot to deal with him being gone.

interpretation | Reviewer: Anonymous | 8/14/11

This Song means different things, to different people, to me it means someone that goes out everyday knowing their end is coming, and accepts death, and is admired by someone for their Bravery and Acceptance of death, the Man terminally ill wanting to be remembered as he was when well, at the end of the day good music is music that you can relate to, and develop your own interpretation to a song.

Ok, get over yourselves | Reviewer: Anonymous | 7/22/11

People, it's art. Art isn't about trying to interpret what the artist was thinking when they did it, it's about what it says to YOU. I'm an artist. I love finding out what others think of my work, how it makes them feel. Often it has nothing to do with what I was thinking of when I did the piece, it's what the piece inspired in them, and going too deep is just posturing. Wanna be a Poser? Spend your time analyzing other people's work instead of trying to experience and enjoy it. People make art because they want to share a feeling, give something of themselves away, let other people experience it how they may. Reach out from their soul. I love this song because it makes me think of all the ordinary heroes in my life.

penis's and vaginas | Reviewer: the doctor | 5/17/11

My opinion:
Who gives a flying squirrell shit about anything other than the music and the performances, i believe Kurt is dead (R.I.P) and Dave is still alive, I am completely unsure about anything else other than this song rocks !!!

Meaning | Reviewer: tman | 5/17/11

As stated by a previous posted, the song was written about the good guy going to work and providing for his family. He did dedicted the song to cops/fireman after 9/11, but wasn't written for them as a group, but as individuals.


BTW, kills self leaving children behind.... cowards don't qualify

Decide for yourself | Reviewer: Anonymous | 5/9/11

My Hero is my husband who is leaving on a yearlong deployment in just a couple days. I think of him when I hear it...there goes my hero. Watch him as he goes. I think about 2500 other wives and parents are thinking the same thing this week as their loved one is pulled away from their family. Why does it really matter what it was about when it was written? It can be about whatever you want it to be. Good song.

This song is amazing. | Reviewer: Anonymous | 5/5/11

Been a huge fan for ages now and to be honest you are all twats for trying to tell people what the song is about, I personally feel its just meant to mean something to everyone since everyone has there own heroes

youre idiots | Reviewer: ashlyn | 4/9/11

courtney love is a no talent slime ball. she hates dave and therefore spreads slander in the one way she can by saying kurt didnt like dave. if you have any doubts about kurt liking dave read the book heavier than heaven. kurt credits much of nirvanas success to dave. he liked him, and thought the world of his talent. dave has also said this song is about kurt. argument over.

Oh | Reviewer: Hank Kingsly | 4/11/11

Dave was just on the Howard Stern show & said that this song is about Pete Stahl, fromt the DC band Scream....for teaching him about life on the road touring & how to make it. I find that interesting cause I grew up on harDCore & hate the Foo Fighters.....but can appreciate their muscianship.

great song, stupid people | Reviewer: Anonymous | 4/11/11

i think its funny people try and say things as if they
1. were even alive for the birth and death of one said band Nirvana
or they....
2. think they know what the bands relationship was with each other when the time Nirvana was around
or they...
3. know "whats, what" in relation to the songs the foo fighters write in terms of meaning.

you people are not necessarily retarded....but for the love of god you spew retarded false information about whatever the hell you think it is you know. reality check!!!! no one cares anymore. i cant believe i wasted my time reading what you people had to say about this song.
Dave Grohl is a legend in my book and hearing all that shit about ohh this is about kurt blah blah blah was over years ago. its a rock and roll band. one thats very good at what they do. and this is why people have different thoughts regarding what this song is about. or else you people wouldnt have created in your own little head "oh hey this is what i think this song is about"

its called genius.
