Default The One

Loving that the guys have released this on Spotify! I own the single of this but do not listen to it enough!

One of my favourite Foo Fighters songs

Yeah its a great song. I own the Australian single that I bought on import in the UK. It's kind of another forgotten Foo song - especially as far as the live set is concerned. So its great that they have put it on Spotify. The video was cool back in the day as well.

Out of interest, what does yours look like? I have no idea where mine came from!

Id like to see it get back into the set lists.

Its this one except it has a big blue sticker on the case that says "HMV Import" which is where I bought it from: https://www.discogs.com/Foo-Fighters...elease/2176066

That website should be able to tell you which one is yours. Retail copies were only manufactured in Australia and New Zealand. Radio promos were released in other countries such as the US.

However, there is a slight exception that in the UK, only one copy each of six different versions of the single were released - 3" CD, CD, MiniDisc, cassette, 12" vinyl, and 7" vinyl - and were given away as prizes. As such, they have become the most highly sought-after Foo Fighters collectibles. I think the 12" turned up on ebay some years back but no one seems to know what happened to the others which would now be valuable collector's items. Or do they ?

These things will be sitting in the collection of someone like you or I who has no intention of selling.
