Song of the Day 4/13 (Edited 04/18/11 09:21PM by Jess)
Foo Fighters are an American alternative rock band originally formed in 1994 by Nirvana drummer Dave Grohl as a one-man project following the dissolution of his previous band due to the death of Nirvana front man Kurt Cobain. Grohl received offers to work with various artists; he almost accepted a permanent position as drummer in Tom Petty and the Heartbreakers but ultimately declined to pursue his own passion of singing and songwriting. Over the course of five days in October of 1994, Grohl recorded twelve of the forty songs he had written (playing every instrument and sang every vocal on the tracks). After finishing the recording, he handed out his demo tapes to friends for feedback, however, the demo tape circulated in the music industry, creating interest among record labels, and ultimately licensed the album to Capitol Records. Grohl formed a band to support the album and on March 3, 1995, debuted at The Satyricon in Portland.  
Over the course of the band's career, three of its albums have won Grammy Awards for Best Rock Album, and all six of the bands albums have been nominated

This song is "Everlong” by Foo Fighters (featured on the album “The Colour and the Shape”)

Didn't they start out with that name as a joke because they thought nobody would take them serious?

Love the Foo Fighters

I have always liked Dave Grohl's style and punishing beats. He's always had that hard pounding style on the skins (and pedals). Which you would expect I guess from someone that idolized John Bonham. If you get a chance, Give a listen to some of his older East Coast bands  (while in high school and pre-Nirvana). ..... Freak Baby, Mission Impossible, Fast, Scream.
Talented S.O.B.

Good band.  I had heard of them, but not really listened to them.  I'll have to try now.

One of my top 5 favorite bands of all time. I have a man crush on Dave Grohl in all his greatness. He is a musical god, as far as I'm concerned. No memories this time, I'm sorry...Foo is just a huge part of my life.

Some faves include:
Another Round
Monkey Wrench
New Way Home

And just for funsies...Dave Grohl takes on an old Elton John favorite

I'm gonna go now before I just post them all.

Great song and video too. I remember MTV started getting bleak with their rotation around the time this was released in '97. This was one of the few good videos they actually played at the time.
