The Top TenXW

1Everlong

I cannot explain in words why, just listen to the guitars, drums and lyrics and you know why. It's all just perfect

Everlong is amazing, its just so catchy. I just friggin' love it! Dave Grohl is just amazing.

This is the greatest hit from one of the greatest rock bands of the late 20th century. The Foo did a great job on this song and Dave Grohl is amazing in this song

Awesome song and just like the Foo Fighters style

2The Pretender

Everything about this song just screams perfection! This song just proves that the Foo Fighters refuse to be like everyone else. My favorite song by them and possibly my favorite song of all time. I love it and I love the Foo Fighters. Rock just don't get better than this song. It's absolute genius!

Best Foo Fighters song I've ever heard. I listened to this song once and I've been humming it ever since. Listen to this before voting for any other song on this list!

I don't know why is it a question? It has the best lyrics, guitar, and singing of their songs

Best song ever period

3Best of You

Can everyone stop voting for only Everlong and The Pretender!? Look how many votes those 2 have compared to the rest of the songs! It's not fair and it's not right, yes they are excellent songs but the Foo Fighters have worked really hard on making all their songs special so give some other songs some love. For example "Aurora" which happens to be Dave Grohl's favourite song is sitting at number 26... "New Way Home" at 31... Also Monkey Wrench is being underrated on here too, it's one of their most well known songs and it's at number 8...

The buildup in between the chorus is what gets me every time. The lyrics ring so true with me as well.

Really powerful, great lyrics, great video and it was also a huge success chart wise. Hit number 4 in the UK, and is certified Platinum in the US. Awesome.

An absolute masterpiece.

4My Hero

This song makes the hairs on my arms stand up!
Try playing it before your next footy game:)

This song is the best it should be number one listen to it a couple of times and you'll see what a great song it is

"Are you thinking what I'm thinking? " "Aim for the bushes" greatest song ever written. It just goes to show that heroes don't have to be sport stars or movie stars but ordinary people. Makes me very emotional when I hear this song. It is utterly absurd that this song is so low because it is simply delectable.

This song make my so happy.

5Monkey Wrench

WHAT THE HECK!? THIS SHOULD BE TOP OF THE LIST! IT'S FOO FIGHTERS BEST SONG BY FAR. The top 5 should include this, The Pretender, Everlong, Wheels and Learn To Fly.

Their new songs are good all right but monkey wrench is definitely their best

How is this not top of the list? This is definitely the best Foo Fighters song, when everyone thinks Foo Fighters, Monkey Wrench always comes to mind first. VOTE!

One last thing before I quit I never wanted anymore than I could fit into my head I still remember every single word you said and all the (bleep) that somehow came along with it still there's one thing that comforts me since I was always caged and now I'm FREE!

This song just rocks. - MontyPython

6Learn to Fly

Excellent guitar riffs, excellent vocals and an all round excellent song.

Best song ever made by Foo Fighters in my opinion!
It's a a shame that it is only ranked #4 here.

The song is really catchy and it stuck in my head!

So vote for this song so people get it!

This is a classic rock and hard rock mixture of pure awesomeness. An incredible song with a more meaningful and melodic feel to it. The simple solos put an emphasis on the simple but amazing sound of this beautiful song. My personal favorite song of all time and of the Foo Fighters. I believe that this song is about the overdose and near death of the bands' drummer, Taylor Hawkins, which only adds more meaning to the song. Also a song in the game "Rock Band" - FooFighters

I love the video clip and the music is so amazing.

7All My Life

Incredible song! So catchy and I love the vocal range. Always gives me the chills when Dave takes his voice way down low, then starts screaming. The guitar that kicks in at one point is amazing. LISTEN TO IT!

Amazing song by an unique Band!
Awesome to play on guitar.
All my Life

The Preserve is probably the best part.

First song I had heard by the Foo Fighter's, so catch and loud, I love the Bass played and also I love the drums fast pace within this brilliant song, Thank you Foo fighter's

Seriously. It's the number 1 a true Foo fan wouldn't even doubt that.

8Walk

Perfect guitars perfect drums perfect vocals perfect everything!

Best song off the new album, and it is one of their best songs period. It should be somewhere in the top ten.

From the newer album "Wasting Light", "Walk" is yet another meaningful song with not too much hardcore to cover up the meaning. It starts off melodic and perfect then turns more rock but not too much. The Foo Fighters outdid themselves with this song becoming my personal favorite of "Wasting Light" - FooFighters

I played lead guitar on this one time, so fun! It is so like Dave Grohl's personality, as well as loud as heck!

Nice, soft song from the Foo's, easily to remember because of the great lyrics. Aurora deserves a lot more recognition though, it's as good as this if not better.

I love this song it always brings a smile to my face when am sad or when am happy.
The Foo Fighters have a great collection of songs they are probably the best band live right now love them.

acoustic please! its the best :$$
i hear it every day and I wanna say I think
its the best song ever!
just listen what the song says
and you will notice the magic and beauty of music
you should listen music before voting! :$$

It's time like these you learn to love again, it's an excellent masterpiece

10Rope

For me, this is the song that screams Foo Fighters! Great melody that makes you want to pick up a guitar and join in...

The delay at the beginning is awesome! The combined vocals between the Taylor and Dave makes this song number 1 for sure. The solo is awesome too! New Single and the best song of the band rate this please.

This song is absolutely mental! Its multidimensionally good. Kickass Riff, Kickass vocals and kickass solo! Without a doubt my favorite Foo song. This deserves to on top seriously!

Rope is the best rock song in the past 10 years. I am concerned that a lot of recent Foo music has Grohl snarling and yelling. Would prefer a bit more melody and less Metallica.

The Newcomers

?Sean
?Long Road to Ruin

This should be in the top ten at least. One of their best songs, in my opinion. "Running through hell, heaven can wait"

This is my favorite Foo Fighters song. Listening to it makes me feel like being someplace else, someplace magical. I always picture a beautiful scenery: an actual paved road, old and dusty, above it the night sky. There is no civilisation around so the only light comes from millions of sparkling stars and a couple of old-fashioned street lights lining the road. Wide and endless fields strech for miles on it's right and left-hand side. A single giant willow tree growing in one of the fields breaks the uniformity of the land. Underneath this tree I imagine me and my sweetheart parking our car and making love between the wheat ears with the stars looking down on us.
The reason why I'm sharing this probably pretty boring 'fantasy' is that I think every great song should have the ability to project wonderful images and/or ideas into your head which inspire you and make you realize once again what an amazing thing life is.
I wish all you Foo Fighters fans a nice day

Very deep lyrics, an actual song that has meaning and sounds amazing. Definitely one of their better songs!

One of their greatest songs ever. This song really captures any emotion I'm feeling. Whether I'm having a bad day or just wanna jam.

The Contenders

11Wheels

Dave grohl and the foo really outdid themselves on this song. The guitar riffs, the chorus, everything is amazing. My favorite quote from the song, "and everyone I'd loved before, flashed before my eyes. And nothing mattered anymore, I looked into the sky. "

This Song is a Masterpiece, I have to say that David Grohl's songwriting has had a an all time high, demonstrated by this song. I LOVE IT! ITS THE BEST! NONE OF HIS OTHER SONGS QUITE COMPARE! PLEASE DO US ALL A FAVOR AND VOTE FOR GOODNESS SAKE! ITS SO GOOD! 1

Most melodious song of the foos... Great guitar riff and beautiful solo.. And elegant bass... No wonder the best drums and vocals

First Too Fighters song I heard... So amazing

12Bridge Burning

This song deserves to be in the top 10 at least! Personally my favorite on their wasting light album

Blew my mind when they opened their show with it. Gets the blood pumping every time.

My favourite song in Wasting Light, and arguably the best foo fighter song period; Great from opening to ending!

The opening to the song is amazing! It could be used for a basketball hype video! The album this comes off is probably the best of their albums yet!

13These Days

This song deserves to be in the top 10! The interpretation of it can be whatever you want it to be! Heart-warming, electrifying song. You actually feel this song! I love it! Go listen to it... Now!

Agreed with the others. This song is so electrifying and moving. I got here from searching "foo fighters these days best song". I love all of these other Foo Fighters songs but this song accomplishes few songs ever do... simplicity, emotion, strength, and vulnerability all in one song. Super simple, yet complex. I can't stop listening to this song.

This is so dumb! This is the best song Dave has written, even Taylor said so! This song can be whatever you want it to be about! I've listened to this song, countless times. Should be at least in the top 5.

Awesome song.

amazing song. I love it. It has a catchy tune and it has a sweet drum solo. LOVE THE FOO FIGHTERS SO MUCH

Great music with a very simple rhythm section (yet effective. )Probably doesn't receive enough credit for a really good song!

Why isn't this song higher on the list!? I'm a long time foo fighters fan and this tops almost every song in the top ten list! Dave's vocals along with his amazing song writing skills are complimented greatly with beautiful music in his should-be hit.

Simple, catchy rhythm which definitely doesn't get as much recognition as it deserves.

15Dear Rosemary

I love this song and its one of the best foo songs in my opinion :) It has a good chorus and great guitars specially on the verses. I allso like how the guitar goes along the melody.

Oh com' on, shouldn't this song be in the top ten, at least. This song is great man please listen to it if you haven't. This song is one of my favourite Foo songs, "Truth ain't gonna change the way you lie, Youth ain't gonna change the way die".

one of the best of the foos I think that the new album is a little underrated but for me is better than all the other albums because all the songs rock!

16Hey, Johnny Park!

This is my all time favorite Foo Fighters song. The intro, the vocals, everything just fits perfectly. I'm not gonna argue that it should be in the top ten because it is my opinion, not yours. My opinion is that this song kicks nearly every song's ass on this list. It is called "Hey Johnny Park! " because Dave's best friend as a kid was a kid named Johnny Park, and he thought that if he named a song after him, that he would call.

Taylor Hawkins' first live song with the band - still as good as it always has been! The drums at the beginning are incredible and with the riffs it just works!

The riff is incredible and the change from the riff to his screaming bridge is just bouncing me away

Great, great song. It has been one of my favorites since I first bought The Colour and the Shape.

17Aurora

Known to be Dave Grohl's favourite song and Is one of my favourite but foo fighters are my favourite band so it was hard to pick. Its a good unpopular song and maybe that's why he likes it?

This song is just perfect, it has a very powerful meaning, "i just kinda died for you, you just kinda stared at me, we will always have the chance,
We can do this one more time" it is so perfect... The guitar is so calm and relaxing and in the chorus is full of power but is still calm... By far my favourite song, and I have heard all of their albums including Wasting Light... This song is epic

This is one song I can listen to again and again!
Even dave grohl said it is one of his favorite song because it was the first song that he felt all the pieces fit perfectly together.

Hell yeah, I remember this song.

18I Should Have Known

No votes? Really? I wouldn't call this the best Foo Fighters song, but it doesn't deserve to be 42nd. It has a great meaning and was referred to as the core piece of the Wasting Light album, as said by Dave, Taylor and their producer Butch Vig.

'One thing is for certain, I'm still standing here, I should have known. '

This song is pure genius. The lyrics, the guitar riff at the beginning, the bass in the mid-section, the amazing drum fills you gotta appreciate. I don't understand why this is so underrated. It's kinds sad.

This is a PHENOMENAL song! I don't know how it's not in the top ten, let alone the best!

By far the best song you'll never hear on the radio. It's a shame

19Let It Die

So good. It does not deserve 22nd place this is ridiculous listen to this song before you vote for any others

My favourite song by foo fighters it is slow until... BAM a beautiful well rocked ending vote for this as it does not deserve 14th place

This is my favorite Foo Fighters songs, hands down. It takes the breath away and leaves you flying on wings. It is underrated very much. - bhargavsai

Lovely song, I'm afraid my words do not do it justice.

20Stacked Actors

I think this is a really good song. It's so much different from any other song that the Foo Fighters have released. It has metal roots in it, and really hard rock riffs. Just a really good song.

One of my favorites by the foo fighters! kinda different than the others

This song should easily be in the top 20 at least, it's one of their best songs live, always boasting a minimum of a seven minute time slot combined with drum and guitar jams during the bridge. Plus that bass line is so catchy how can this possibly be so low?

This song is so good. PLEASE VOTE IT UP.
