Foo Fighters - Wasting Light

People debated the relative grunge-ness of “Rope” when it first surfaced, though I think time would’ve been better spent appreciating Dave Grohl’s Hulk Hogan-esque acting in the Lemmy-approved “White Limo” video. Regardless, get your flannel ready before you stream Foo Fighters’ analog-recorded, Butch Vig-produced seventh album Wasting Light. As far as contributing to the ’90s Seattle vibe, Krist Novoselic appears on “I Should Have Known.” Elsewhere, proto-grunge hero Bob Mould contributes vocals and guitar to standout “Dear Rosemary,” making me wish he’d contributed vocals to additional tracks. The biggest issue: How many of these songs will appear in inspirational NFL montages? (The answer: At least two.) Listen:

Wasting Light is out 4/12 via RCA.
