That cover art reminds me of Pink Floyd's Animals cover. Didn't they once cover Have a Cigar?

Why yes, yes they did good sir!



However, this is by FAR my favorite Foo cover (even including "Baker Street"), "Band On The Run":



Stomps all kinds of ass when it kicks in at 1:18.

Yeah their Band On the Run is a ridiculously good cover.

This board won't tolerate threads about bands who get better and better after 20 years/8 albums.

I love FF. Thought the last album was great, excited to hears this one.

gweeps 08-29-2014 08:25 PM

The debut album is still my favourite. What an incredible achievement for a musician.

:upyours Front to back definitely their best album. Will always have a special place for me. Really one of those first albums for me that made me release there was more to music. This and Bush - 16 stone for some reason will always be there.

I get all the love for the debut album, but The Colour and the Shape is my jam...I remember hearing Monkey Wrench for the first time and losing my sh!t.

Yea one of my favorite bands for sure, and I gotta go with this here, love the debut but seriously Colour and Shape is just so good top to bottom. Favorite for me for sure.

Yeah everyone loves Everlong but Monkey Wrench is "the song" for me of their early hits. That song just slays. Hey Johnny Park is great too.

I think their debut album may be my LEAST favorite in their whole catalog.

dmb6743 09-03-2014 03:41 PM

It also certainly doesn't hurt to have some of the best music videos out there.

I like Everlong, but to me no other tune encapsulates the fire and energy they bring quite like Monkey Wrench does.

The debut is not my least favorite (looking at you "One By One" although even that one did have a few good tunes), but it's one I really don't play that much these days.

gweeps 09-05-2014 08:39 PM

Need to add this here:



I think they make the song their own, especially Glenn. Unfortunately he is now in a care facility because of Alzheimer's disease. At the time of this live recording he was in the early stage. But he still toured to support his last album between 2011 and 2012 after going public. Pretty awesome. Dare I say courageous?

The studio version is found on his 2008 album Meet Glenn Campbell. I think it's more poignant than the original.
