This represents what should be the last stop on “Wheels“‘ launch cycle. A very typical launch cycle, which included a debut on the White House front lawn, inclusion on a Greatest Hits set, and full-on Tom Petty derivation. America. The song’s clip set in a massive “Wheels” house doesn’t do much to introduce you to elements of the Foos you didn’t already know — they like to rock, they can afford practice spaces the size of airport hangers (with better furnishing) and camera tricks that subtly incorporate outdoor imagery into indoor scenery — so, basically: safe, comfy, sorta retrospective. But then a Greatest Hits bonus cut isn’t meant to rattle any wheels.
Foo Fighters’ Greatest Hits is out 11/2.
