Foo Fighters – “Rope” Video

There was a noteworthy amount of discussion around “Rope,” the first single from the forthcoming Wasting Light, especially given (or maybe because of) how textbook Foo that self-doubting post-grunge radio rock hook felt. Here’s that song’s video, featuring Pat Smear because the album does as well, with the black-clad band inside a Battles “Atlas”-reminiscent cube,… More »

Foo Fighters – “White Limo” Video (Feat. Lemmy)

Foo Fighters playful video for the punked-up “White Limo” stars Lemmy and plenty of Hulk Hogan-esque acting from the band (see above). As far as the aesthetic, it’s fitting Grohl’s wearing a COPS shirt. More »

Foo Fighters Video Sucks

The Foo Fighters just launched a contest to find directors for their album. Usually these contests involve sending in your fan-made video, having the band judge it, and then getting a camera or a Red Lobster gift certificate as your prize. But for this contest — called “This Video Sucks” — the band is asking… More »

Dave Grohl asked his former Nirvana bandmate Krist Novoselic and Nevermind producer Butch Vig to help him out on the new “old school analogue” Foo Fighters album.

New Them Crooked Vultures – “Mind Eraser, No Chaser”

It’s about time someone had some pun with Thelonius Monk. “Mind Eraser, No Chaser” isn’t the first studio single we’ve heard from rock-demigod triptych Them Crooked Vultures’ self-titled debut — that’d be “New Fang” — and it isn’t the only instance of their titular wordplay (see also: “Interlude With Ludes,” “Caligulove”). But it’s the first… More »

New Foo Fighters – “Word Forward”

There’s no doubt that, of the bands who hadn’t yet had a greatest hits release, Foo Fighters’ was among the more overdue. They’ve constantly cranked out awesome modern rock songs and topped the radio charts! Even back when people knew what a radio was! There are myriad reasons for this sort of package: to celebrate… More »

New Them Crooked Vultures – “New Fang”

You don’t have to pack into crammed rock clubs/attend huge festivals/scour YouTube for crap-grade performance clips for tastes of the Led Stone Age Fighters supergroup much longer: Them Crooked Vultures have a self-titled debut out next month, and the studio song they want you to hear first is “New Fang.” For fans of riffs.

Them Crooked Vultures @ Stubb’s, Austin 10/1/09

They’ve come a long way: From being just a couple of scrappy upstarts playing a bunch of unreleased material at the Metro this summer, three practically unknown dudes named John Paul Jones, Josh Homme, and Dave Grohl (along with megastar Alain Johannes of course) now have a full US tour plotted, kicking off last night… More »

New Foo Fighters Video – “Wheels”

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… More »

New Foo Fighters – “Wheels”

You guys had a lot of good suggestions for bands deserving a greatest hits package, a conversation started when news broke that Foo Fighters were finally getting theirs. It’s overdue for the Foos, a band that’s consistently churned out tracks that were relative bright spots on otherwise-vacuous modern-rock radio playlists. (“Radio” was a thing people… More »

Foo Fighters Get A Greatest Hits … Who Else Is Due?

While they were more of a necessity in the pre-MP3 era, Greatest Hits collections will be around as long as music needs marketing. The best selling album of 2009 so far is a hits comp (you know who), the Beatles’ 1 is the best selling album of the decade. Those are some fun facts. My… More »

New Them Crooked Vultures – “Caligulove” (Live At Lowlands)

Following live videos of “Dead End Friends” and “Elephants,” here’s one for “Caligulove” from the Homme/Grohl/John Paul Jones project captured at Saturday’s Lowlands festival in the Netherlands. Not as bombastic as previous samples, but this one’s got JPJ on organ, y’all. (Plus, full-length vid of “Nobody Loves Me [And Neither Do I],” which is TCV’… More »

New Them Crooked Vultures – “Elephants” (Live At Pukkelpop Festival)

This past weekend the Josh Homme/Dave Grohl/John Paul Jones supergroup Them Crooked Vultures did two festival gigs in Europe, including the “surprise” set which surprised nobody at Belgium’s Pukkelpop. We’re still waiting on the trio to stop playing coy and just confirm some details around their inevitable album already, but in the interim we’ll just… More »

New Them Crooked Vultures – “Dead End Friends” (Live In Amsterdam)

Josh, Dave, and John Paul didn’t make it easy for us to attend their first-ever live show: midnight on a Sunday in Chicago, which happened to be just hours after three days of the muggiest Lollapalooza to date, at the 1,100-capacity Metro rock club. Which had a broken air conditioner, as if the 1,100+ Zep/QOTSA/Foos/Nirvana… More »

Them Crooked Vultures @ Metro, Chicago 8/9/09

After three days of extreme sweat and fatigue from running between stages in Grant Park for Lollapalooza (post TK), ordinarily there’d be zero appeal to a midnight Sunday show in an overcapacity rock club without a working air conditioner. But there was nothing ordinary about last night’s gig at the 1,100-person Metro in Wrigleyville. And… More »
