My current top 5 are:

Enough Space
I'll Stick Around
Wattershed
New Way Home
Headwires

This changes fairly frequently mind you.

I think White Limo might creep in there, it's just outside jostling with Weenie Beenie (in an aggressive screamo shouty way).

Oh boy...

I can't give a definite answer, but right now I'd say:

1. Times like These (especially since it is so good acoustic)
2. Everlong (The feeling I got when I first heard that song, just amazing)
3. Bridge Burning (Rocks SO hard)
4. For all the Cows (solid tune)
5. Summer's End (ESP&G did something for me that most CD's never reach, just awesome.)

Now, this is usually changing, but right now it's this.

That's in no way near my favourite track by the Foo's, but I do like it. Lovely autumn/winter tune, I like the bit where he says "Pray for summer's end!"

I often find myself saying that in the august and september months...

Just the way that that song rolls man, I love it. It's kinda between that and Resolve.

I couldn't pick 5 now,
used to be 1 Everlong
2 The Pretender
3 Learn to Fly
4 Best of You
5 All My Life

now- well Rope just sent shivers through me (I mean I couldn't get over the Rush images in me head when I heard this in terms of musicianship and creativity)
Bridge Burning has become a new favorite, just because- "Holy Hell"- I mean this song has just about everything and still drives smoothly like a bad Caddy man.
This is the type of excitement I felt back in the 80s puttin' on The Clash or The Police records- just a cut above the rest of the music world

Cheers:>

I was hoping I would see someone with Enough Space as number 1 or 2!
For Me its probably

Wind Up
Enough Space
All my Life
Gimme Stitches
Aurora

Picking your favorite Foo Fighters song is like picking your favorite child.

I really love that record and now always picture Dave's face at the intro of the Wasting Light recording shown after the Back and Forth documentary.

In no particular order (this changes a lot) right now I'd say...
End Over End - I effing love this song, even if the chorus is a bit repetitive
Arlandria - I can't find anything not to like. It's so amazing.
MIA - Such an underrated song, definitely one of my faves
Tired Of You - Don't get why lots of people don't like this song, I think it's great.
Monkey Wrench - RAWK OUT.

Well, wow-That's a pretty cool breakdown!
But, I think the band would add:
Rock'n Freak- "whatever makes you bust out!"
(alot like Road Trip, but maybe even more!)
