Default Foo For a Friend

What Foo Fighters song would you recommend to play at your own funeral?

I'd prolly ask mine to play Everlong- which is my favourite and would rock the joint,
which would totally be my point!!

How 'bout you-
What Foo tune if any would you like?

cheers
:>

about 10 years ago my friend died of brain cancer, he was 20 years old. we walked into the church to the sounds of tool playing over the pa. that was kinda funny...and awkward to hear in there.

i actually already have my funeral playlist(just something you do when dealing with potential lung transplant in the near future). although my funeral will be more of a party, at the beach, nothing downer about it hopefully. but what do i care, i won't be there, haha!

if i really wanted to be a dick i would put "home" on there. but i won't do that.

my kids like to sing "my hero" to me, so that one is on mine. yeah, my kids kinda rule.

"walk" is also on there now. with my lung disease walking is one of the things that is hard to do at certain times, especially when sick. once i am gone i won't have the constraint of these shitty lungs any more and i will be free to walk, wherever that may be.

"My Hero"
It's my portrait.
And it sounds good to leave this playground,probably inside a box,as I ask.

White limo. I want my funeral to be fucking hilarious and that would be most appropriate.

I think that would be my pick! I want people to look at each other & say "What the fuck is this?!".

oddly enough I've put way to much thought into this topic lately mainly cause I hate the downer music that usually play at funerals. I'm putting it in my will what the sound track to my funerl will be and it will be awesome. But if I had to pick one Foo song it would probably be Normal.

Hey not to make it seem like I'm correcting you but you can draw up your last wishes which includes stuff like the music you want played, the venue, pretty much you can say "This right here is my funeral, right here and that's how it's gonna be"
I've started coming up with my playlist and Highway to Hell is the definite choice for graveside.

Yep agree with a few others, definately Home for me.

I went to a funeral not long ago of a friend of mine, he died at a young age, he knew he was dying (brain tumour) and his request was "forever young" l am not sure who sings it, but l still get emotional if the song comes on the radio.
