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...

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.

This is a call for me too. After I heard that song for the first time I went out and bought the cd, or the tape I can't remember now, and the obsession began lol.
