The majority of that list consists of singles.. I don't really get the point of this thread?

If you look at all the threads he has started, you might come to realize that often the threads don't have a deeper meaning and generally seem like a "Hey guys, I just had this thought while I was under the shower" thing

On a totally different note:
How come Learn to Fly is such a love or hate song? Is it the lyrics? Is it the music? I really enjoy the song, so I don't know how that would make me less of a 'true' Foo Fighters Fan

ouch whatevs

I just thought its a cool idea and a bit surprised that younger peeps know some of the older stuff like Space, Call

of course some of the top 10 have to do maybe with songs on tour.

oh, and don't worry
Learn To Fly is a Great tune
and I'm very definitely In

Cheers Foo Mates

Maybe it was overplayed just too freaking much. I hate two of the most overplayed (I don't even have hard evidence, it's just a guess) Foo songs: LTF, and Times Like These... that would make sense innit?

Ding ding dine. I like LTF but don't want to hear it at every concert.

For me, it's My Hero and Stacked Actors (live speaking). Those are my bathroom/beer breaks at shows. I turn the radio station too if they come on.

Totally agree with Stacked Actors as the bathroom/beer break song. I been hoping for the last couple tours that they would drop it and replace it with two other songs. My picks would be MIA and I'll Stick Around (Not to hard to pull off as they have been setlist staples in the past).

I love Stacked Actors on the album but the 12 minute live version has really grown old. I wouldn't mind it still if they just played the 4 minute version and played 2 other songs in those leftover 8 minutes.

Stacked Actors!?!?!? What? Yeah, I'm not a fan of LTF and never have been, and Wheels and Resolve don't do much for me either, but Stacked Actors is sch a vibrant interesting song. I love every live version the Foos have done.

I'd agree that the Stacked Actors jam has become a bit tired. I enjoyed it at the itunes show last year when Dave stood on the bar at the back of the hall and duelled with Shifty on stage but otherwise it's become a bit of a yawnorama. I'll Stick Around is such an amazing song it should definitely slide back into the setlist.

LTF for me is overplayed. I still laugh at the video but generall if I see it/hear it I'll switch radio stations or music channels. I sort of get why it's still played live as it probably brought a lot of people to the band but I just find it a bit guff now.

Is this possibly the first thread without a poll? To be fair, it's probably leading on to another poll.
