Retronaut Favorites: Foo Fighters

Published on 27 October 2021 at 09:20

My earliest memories of Foo Fighters come from hearing their songs in Guitar Hero when I was a kid.

My real Foo Fighters phase started when I was older, after I got into Wasting Light, and I joined Tumblr.

In my early days on Tumblr, I was privy to the grunge and alternative scene and the classic rock scene as well.

It was at this time that I found bands like Mother Love Bone, Soundgarden, Pearl Jam, Queen, and Pink Floyd through all the different blogs I followed.

My dad used to play “Wasting Light” literally every day when it was out. It’s crazy to think that that album came out 8 years ago??

It seems like such a short time ago, but it’ll be a decade soon.

I got really into Foo Fighters from Wasting Light, but I got insanely into “Echoes, Silence, Patience, and Grace”.

I knew “The Pretender”, but I got really into “Let It Die”, “Summer’s End”, and “Ballad Of The Beaconsfield Miners” too.

As time passed, they became one of the bands that I kept up with from Sonic Highways, to Concrete and Gold, so over time, they’ve become one of my absolute favorites.

I’ve been listening to a lot of different stuff lately and this playlist is one that makes me feel really nostalgic because I haven’t revisited this stuff in a while, and it feels awesome to.

As always, I’ve created a playlist of my favorites for you to listen to while you read the feature!
