FOO FIGHTERS

Which is wilder to consider: that it’s been 18 years since Nirvana released Nevermind or that Dave Grohl’s Foo Fighters have released six albums since? While Nirvana was dragged kicking and screaming into playing arenas, Grohl built the Foos and their sound to fill them. Among the 16 tracks assembled on their first greatest hits collection are obvious tracks such as “Monkeywrench,” “Best of You,” and “My Hero,” all well-worn staples of any rock bar. Later, and slightly less obviously, tracks such as “Long Road to Ruin” and “Times Like These” also show up. Of course, no hits collection is complete without a few unreleased tracks designed to draw you in, so Grohl includes the light Tom Petty twang of “Wheels” and the raging, if slightly flat, “Word Forward.”
