I first had the idea to make a "Foo Fighters song guide" when I read the Rare Nirvana guides (wich rocked!). So here it is the Foo guide.
01. All My Life (Album One By One)
First track and single from One By One. All My Life was recorded at both sessions for One By One. The finished product from the first session included a low-volume feedback intro. Dave confirmed that writing for the song began in 2000 during the first "There Is Nothing Left To Lose" tour.
Released as a two-CD single. B-sides include Sister Europe (Physcidelic Fur cover), Win Or Lose, Danny Says (Ramones cover) & The One.
02. Aurora (Album Theres Nothing Life To Lose)
6th track on There's Nothing Left To Lose. Aurora was originally slated to be a single from There Is Nothing Left To Lose, but Dave didn't think the band could make a profound video for it due to their jocular nature. It is played during the movie "Loser", but is not on the soundtrack.
03. Breakout (Album Theres Nothing Life To Lose)
2nd track and 4th single from There's Nothing Left To Lose. Also appears on the "Me, Myself & Irene" soundtrack. A video was made to support the single, which has the same theme as the actual movie.
Released as a single. B-sides include Iron And Stone (The Obssessed cover), Learn To Fly. Japanese release includes Iron And Stone, Ain't It The Life (acoustic, live), Learn To Fly (live), Stacked Actors (live), B-side of Stacked Actors single.
04. Generator (Album Theres Nothing Life To Lose)
5th track and 3rd single from There's Nothing Left To Lose. Described by Dave as a juxtaposition of 70's punk and 70's rock. It can be heard on the intro of the Breakout video.
Released as a single. B-sides include Ain't It The Life (live, acoustic), Floaty (acoustic), Fraternity & Breakout.
05. Hey, Johnny Park! (Album The Colour And The Shape)
3rd track on The Colour And The Shape. Dave said he named the track after an old friend hoping Mr. Park would hear it and get in touch with Dave again.
06. The Colour And The Shape (B-Side)
3rd track on the Monkey Wrench CD2 single. Sound's like Podunk or Weenie Beeinie.
07. I'm Alone Again (Unreleased)
A great Foo Fighters song that was sadly never released. Recorded at the Robert Lang sessions on 01/24-26/1996 (only recording available).
08. I'll Stick Around (Album Foo Fighters)
2nd track and single from Foo Fighters. Often thought to be a song written to spite Courtney Love. One of three songs Dave wrote for the self-titled album after Kurt's death.
Released as a single. B-sides include How I Miss You & Ozone (Ace Frehly cover).
09. New Wave (Unreleased)
Performed live on 08/03/01. The show, which was private, was taped by MTV, but they didn't broadcast New Wave. Mostly likely to stay unreleased.
10. The One (B-Side)
Released as a single. Appears on the Orange County soundtrack. A video was made to support the single. Not A B-Side, but close enough!
11. Oh, George (Album Foo Fighters)
8th track on Foo Fighters Self-Titled album. One of three songs Dave said was written after Kurt's death. The title is paying homage to the late George Harrison, Dave's favorite Beatle.
Any more songs wanted, please tell me on the comments page. Thanks;).
