About the Album — Long story short (long day, sorry Foo): I credit this album with the reason I got into Foo Fighters as hard core as I did. This album, to me, is Dave Grohl’s finest masterpiece.

“Monkey Wrench” and “Everlong” are two of Foo’s most iconic songs. “My Hero” live and acoustic pretty much makes me cry. “Hey, John Park!” is arguably the best song on this album, filled with four amazing singles that are staples at every Foo Fighters show.

And one more thing: Dave Grohl is the freakin’ man!
