    wheres stacked actors and I'll stick around? they need those two songs as well and then it'd be good.

    Should this album be called THE BEST THE BEST THE BEST THE BEST THE BEST THE BEST THE BEST THE BEST THE BEST THE BEST THE BEST THE BEST THE BEST THE BEST THE BEST THE BEST THE BEST THE BEST THE BEST THE BEST THE BEST THE BEST THE BEST THE BEST THE BEST THE BEST?
    lolmnt
    Checked. It's a greatest hits, not a "Your Favorite Songs." Obviously the lesser known songs won't be on there.

    Also, ESPG does NOT have all screaming. Hardly any, actually. I can't think of any except for on the first three songs, really.

    Where's my favorite song? My favorite band didn't include it on their Greatest Hits record! Just copy and paste the above into any article regarding a Greatest Hits / Best Of album.

    I wanna hear "Wheels" and "Word Forward!" Favorite band ftw.

    In Your Honor is my second favorite album of theirs, below The Colour and the Shape. And Dave IS known for how well he can scream.

    They miss Next, Year, Walking after you, The One, DOA, Generator and I'll stick around.. But anyway, this is a Greatest Hits album,, not "The Best of Foo Fighters." Good list.

    I love the Foo Fighters, but there is a severe lack of Stacked Actors, Let It Die, DOA, Hey, Johnny Park and I'll Stick Around, I honestly thought I'll Stick Around would have been there before This Is A Call, same applies with Let It Die and DOA, I thought they would get a mention well before This Is A Call

    laxkid61

    DOA and No Way Back....how can they leave those out...and stacked actors ...i guess theres to many good foo fighters song for one disc
    petho
    I'll Stick Around? DOA? Generator? No Way Back? Stacked Actors? For All The Cows? Let It Die?
    Ed Vedder19
    ill stick around was their first single wasnt it?!? Isnt that a standard track for any bands greatest hits?
    TryingYourLuck

    Amen to that.
    robidoux
    Maybe they consider Let it Die too new to be on this album... But in all fairness, short of putting their entire discography on a DVD, they weren't going to completely please everyone. Still...
    illmental
    Wha? The FooFighters had enough hit's to make a greatest album.. where was I?
    Kankuro1
    A while ago one of them said (can't remember if it was Chris or Nate) that he thought they would be going back to the studio soon.. So, are they done? That'd be a total bummer. I'm surprised only one person has said that yet.

    yeah wheres let it die
    CJE
    No let it die? Aw... Well, I guess Foo Fighters just have too many awesome singles to be put on one CD... That's just more for Greatest Hits II, I guess. Yeah, I'm definately gonna pick up the deluxe version.

    i totally agree it definantly needs more everlong

    So many good tracks missing. I'm a massive foo fighters fan, they're no# 1 in my book, and i think some of their B-sides are better than the album songs.
    robdee1000
    Awesome band, amazing track listing. Everyone has echo'd that all the tracks they do have some place on this album but the singles are a safe bet. I guess thats Part I finished...onto Part II.

    Greatest hits albums are great for reaching a new audience, but if you really want to turn the people who buy a Best Of album into hardcore fans you have to make 'em curious: make them feel like there's so much more stuff out there that's worth checking out Perhaps they should also release a special 2-disc edition featuring the best non-hits (like "Have it All" and "For All the Cows"), B-sides/rarities (one or 2 demos from the Nirvana days would be sweet) or Live material (Jimmy Page and John Paul Jones anyone?) and that kind of stuff, just like R.E.M. did a few years ago. Even a lot of people who already owned all their records bought that compilation, just for the bonus tracks...
    cobainAnselmo
    It should be: Title:The Anthology of the Foos Two disc with all of their essensial songs, not just their single... Bonus DVD and booklet with all of their history.. That's gonna be great...
    strung_out1
    stupid contractual obligations... i hate when bands are made to put out a 'best of' when they're still a band
    hellview_666
    Would've liked an acosutic version of Times Like These on there too...that would've been sweet. May still get this.
    wouldyakindly
    Got all their albums anyway, so this is a bit of an anticlimax. Still, I'll have to get a hold of those two new tracks .

    Yeah i agree "come back" was an amazing song, i also loved "lonely as you", that was amazing!
    foxyfox
    i like 'come back' aswell, also 'the one' or 'let it die' or 'stacked actors' souldve gone on there

    DiabolusnMusica
