Foo Fighters Release “Something From Nothing” Music Video

The jury is still out on whether or not Foo Fighters have a number one hit with their latest single, but earlier today the first track from the band’s new album made headlines once again thanks to the song’s official music video.

Released to YouTube at some point on Monday, October 20, the official video for “Something From Nothing” put the focus on both Foo Fighters and the lyrics to their latest release. The clip finds the band performing in an open space, with handwritten lyrics popping up onscreen as they are recited by frontman Dave Grohl. It’s …

Foo Fighters Stream “Something From Nothing”

The wait is over, Foo fans. The first song off Foo Fighters highly-anticipated new album has found its way online ahead of the record’s November street date.

Arriving on YouTube late Thursday afternoon, “Something From Nothing” showcases the latest evolution of Foo Fighters in just under five minutes’ time. It’s not the immediately catchy track many were expecting, but rather a slow burn effort that builds on a riff that sounds a lot like “Holy Diver” until everything boils over for a final hard rock jam session before things come to a close. I don’t think anyone could have expected …

WATCH: Foo Fighters Cover Black Sabbath, Melt Faces

Foo Fighters began their week-long residency on the Late Show with David Letterman last night and to viewers’ delighted surprise the band covered the heavy metal behemoth of a track — “War Pigs.” Originally composed and released by Black Sabbath in 1970, “War Pigs” is a politically-charged, giant and downright classic metal song…and Foo Fighters nailed it (along with a lackadaisical and somewhat out of place Zac Brown).

“Ahhhh, my God,” Letterman exclaimed when the track ended.

In case you missed it yesterday, the band released a trailer for their new HBO show, Sonic Highways, which begins later this …

Watch Foo Fighters Tear Up A Small Venue As The Holy Shits

I think it’s safe to say that Dave Grohl is a badass. He has been in the music industry for a long time, and is in one of the most respected rock bands in the world (Foo Fighters, of course). You’d think all that would get to his head, but from what we’ve seen time and time again, it most certainly has not.

A prime example of how awesome he can be: his band played a secret show at a teeny tiny venue in England the other night. Not only that, but they were on the lineup as …

Shreddy Krueger Cover Foo Fighters’ “My Hero”

Though we aren’t seeing quite as many cover songs as we did a year or so ago, there are still some bands releasing quality covers. The latest group to unleash a reimagined version of a popular song is the metalcore outfit Shreddy Krueger. Instead of picking a generic pop song like many other groups, the band decided to take the time to record their version of Foo Fighers‘ hit single “My Hero.” You can give it a listen below the break.

If you like what you hear, the song is available for purchase through iTunes.…

Foo Fighters Tease Eight Seconds Of Their Eighth Studio Album

Today is August 8, which means it’s 8/8, and earlier today the members of Foo Fighters decided to share with fans a short, 8-seconds clip from the band’s upcoming eighth studio album. Eight. Eight. Eight. Eight. Eight. See a theme?

We have no idea when Foo Fighters will grace the world with their new album, but if the clip found below is any indication of what we can expect I think it’s safe to say the band is just as aggressive as ever. The footage released this morning features no music, but does offer Dave Grohl’s signature voice shouting “All …
