The best Foo Fighters songs, ranked
Foo Fighters are well-known as one of the greater rock bands to arise out of grunge's ashes, though the beating heart of their widespread appeal takes many forms. Maybe it's founder, frontman, and principal songwriter Dave Grohl's durable reputation as one of music's good guys, with a personality on par with a pal who'd help you move a couch if it came right down to it. (After all, this is a famous rock star who once played a series of gigs in fans' garages.)
Maybe it's the everlasting grin, irrepressible spirit, and frenetic drumming style of late Foos drummer Taylor Hawkins, whose untimely passing in March 2022 marked a reckoning with the band's enduring legacy. Or maybe it's their net total of 15 Grammy Awards, including five trophies for Best Rock Album, and a nearly 30-year career that's included 10 major concert tours.
But what's certain is that the group doesn't plan to slow down despite having experienced their most trying and tragic year yet. With 10 studio albums to go with all of that touring, Foo Fighters have put their share of tremendous rock jams into the ether. Here are our picks for their 15 all-time best songs, ranked.
