20 Best Foo Fighters Songs

January 14, 2019

Foo Fighters are on top of the world. They've been there since the mid-90's and they're not going anywhere anytime soon. That's a good thing, we love them. Since the beginning they've managed to drop nine studio albums, win 11 GRAMMY awards, and tour the world non-stop. We're tired just thinking about that. 

A few fun facts about the band:

  • "The group got its name from the UFOs and various aerial phenomena that were reported by Allied aircraft pilots in World War II, which were known collectively as 'foo fighters'."
  • Their record company, Roswell, is named after a New Mexico town where a flying saucer supposedly crashed in 1947.
  • After Kurt Cobain’s death, Dave Grohl was asked to join Tom Petty and the Heartbreakers but later declined.
  • Before joining the Foo Fighters, Taylor Hawkins was the drummer for singer-songwriter Alanis Morissette.
  • Foo Fighters hold the current GRAMMY record for most wins in the Best Rock Album category (via GRAMMYs)

Without further ado, lets get in to the Top 20 Foo Fighters songs
