This also reminds me of why I loved Smashing Pumpkins so much in the 90's (and still worship the Pixies). They also frequently employed the loud/soft/loud dynamic to tremendous effect. A pity Billy Corgan went so soft after MC&IS.

Enough Space was the song that started my love affair with this band. It continues to be my favorite song, although Bridge Burning is right there at 1B. I play Bridge Burning every morning in the car right before I get to work, just to pump myself up for the day.

This is a call. When I went off to Uni, it was 2 years after I was lucky enough to see nirvana in sydney. Every single morning Black Hole Sun was played on triple J at 6am (when my alarm was set). It was a fucking awesome time for music. Then it was shit because Kurt died. The next year I discovered this is a call and was de-lighted again. I bought the album and have loved the foos since.

Hey guys, I'm new here and this is my first post! From London, recently went to the Foo Fighters Arms (the pub taken over for C&G), fan since their inception, and I play guitar and learn their songs.

Anyway, Hey Johnny Park got me hooked on FF. Amazing riff, great melody and that drum intro is just one of my faves of all time.

Loving the new album!!

TINLTL was the first Foo album I bought off of the back of discovering a love for Nirvana, still one of my absolute favorites. Looking back I had probably come across other tracks but not taken much notice, pretty sure Learn to Fly was everywhere when it was released but I was more into RHCP and Incubus at the time!

Same Beckiii, TINLTL was my first and I wore that sucker out and had to get another copy. Generator, Gimme stitches - really the whole album is one epic ride - this is the album I fell in love with Dave Grohl and I haven't lost one ounce of love and respect for the guy after all these years. Genius.

Uuugh Generator is SUCH. A. TUNE. And followed by Aurora? Amazing.

Well, to be honest (in my option) the whole album is flawless, not a clanger on it anywhere.

...can you tell which album is my favourite

I had been a casual listener, but back in the day "Breakout" got me to buy TINLTL, and "Headwires" sealed the deal. That song is like xanax for me.

LOL Re: Ok so wht foo track got you hooked???

For me it was “This is a call”.
I saw them in 1996 at Torhout/Werchter in Belgium when I was 17yo.
They came out with “Enough Space” which is one of the most Nirvana like songs I thought.

Then it took until 2012 for me to catch them again in Belgium at Pukkelpop.
Saw them in Feb 2015 in Sydney and had tickets for Rock Werchter in Belgium in July 2015 but they were replaced by Faith No More because of Dave Grohl’s broken leg.
Just saw them again in Sydney a couple of weeks ago...

For my son who is now 11 it was “These days” whe he was about 5 he really loved that song. Can’t wait to go to the FF together with him.
The below is a video from 2011 when he rocks out on the song after about 50 seconds in the clip.
