I think Monkey Wrench was on The Best Air Guitar Album in the World Ever! and was the first taste of Foo I had. Then I heard Next Year at some point. Still didn't know anything about them. Then I copied One By One off my friend and quite liked it. A couple of years later and I got around to getting the previous 3 albums and a new Foo Fan was born.

Therefore I think it was a gradual assimilation process rather than a song hooking me in particular.

The first Foo song I heard was Best of You - and, seeing the video, I was fascinated by this guy with astonishingly white teeth. Then I saw the video for DOA, and that was what really got me hooked.

well, I liked one or two other songs beforehand, but Monkey Wrench clinched it for me. After that, I had to buy TCATS. And when I did, life was pretty much complete, haha...

For me it's Exhausted, Butterflies and How I miss you. These songs helped me so much and will always help me through my fucking life. Thank you Dave and the other Foo Fighters for these songs.

Besides I really love Winnebago, All my life, Breakout, Tired of you and of course many others.

Best of You did it for me when I was 15, i was washing up at work, and one of the girls that i used to work with lent me her ipod cuz I was sooooooo bored (I cannot explain how boring the washroom at work is.... they shud use it as a form of corporal punishment!). Id never heard Best of You before, but listenedto it once, then had it on repeat for like 3 hrs... I fort it was amazing! Id never heard of the Foo Fighters before, but when I mentioned them to my bf, he was like... 'i have one of their albums... theyre mint.' so he lent me TCANS, n he as never got it back!!!!! N since then I have collected every album, single and DVD, and coated my walls of both of my bedrooms with their posters, and when I go uni in October, I fully intend to cover my room there with posters too!!

Sorry for rambling....

Well, lets see. I remember hearing all these songs on the radio like Learn To Fly, This Is A Call, Times Like These and My Hero when they were new-ish and I loved them but I didnt really know anything at all about the Foo Fighters at the time. I remember when the video for Times Like These was popular. My brother was like "check this out"...i thought it was okay but nothing special (I WAS SO DUMB)...but then it grew on me (love it now). I also remember watching MTV when they would constantly play the Best of You and D.O.A. videos....i liked them a lot but still didnt realy consider myself a FF fan.

BUT then a couple years ago, my brother bought TCATS (by then I had kinda known who they were but still didnt know that they did all those hits). I listened to it and thought some of the songs were pretty good like Monkey Wrench and Hey Johnny Park. When it got to My Hero, i was thinking "heyyy i know this song!" lol. But man, when track 11 started playing, I was like . I was thinking "okay...i HAVE to look these guys up"...I was paying no attention to Walking After You or New Way Home at that time because all that was going through my head was "Hello ive waited here for you Everlong...". So all day I had Everlong stuck in my head. I got absolutely no work done in school. All i was thinking was "Breath out so I can breath you in, hold you in...". As soon as I got home, I went on the interweb and looked up those damn Foo Fighters. They've been a major obsession of mine ever since.

So you COULD say the tune that got me interested was My Hero, Times Like These or Best of You....but Everlong changed my life. Thank God for brothers, right?




Okay sorry that was so excruciatingly long. I could just talk about FF's music for ever and ever.

I can't say it was any one track. For me it's his voice.

Can't remember if the first Foos album came out before This is a Call, but I either bought the single or album first, depending on which was released first.

As a Nirvana fan, I bought everything related to them at the time.
