Default Songs I'd like them to cover

Loved their cover of Baker Street. I think they should cover...

Paul McCartney's, "Let Me Roll It to You"
Lennon's, "Cold Turkey"
and the Beatles, "Don't Let Me Down"

I think they could knock anyone (or all of those) out of the park

Also, I'd love to see what they could do with Stevie Wonder's, "Higher Ground or "Superstition"

I don't think the first three have been covered that often, and although they may not be obvious choices, I think the Foo Fighters would do a fantastic job of putting their spin on those untouched classics.

Any thoughts?

Maybe some Janis Joplin?

Dave is such a good screamer. Close second to Chris Cornell (as far as all out scrotum ripping, throat taring goes). Maybe Twist and Shout, too. Do you detect a theme?

I remember thinking around the time of the "Concert For George Harrison" (which was attended by Dave and Taylor) that The Foo Fighters could have done an awesome version of "Taxman".

Don't you mean "Down In The Park"?
