Best Foo Fighters Songs

The Top Ten

1 Everlong Everlong Cover Art

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

Played it too many times. One of those perfect songs like Rooster, Smells Like teen spirits.

2 The Pretender The Pretender Cover Art

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

My FAVORITE SONG ever! FOO FIGHTERS ROCK! What if I say I'm not like the others! What if I say I'm not just another ONE of your plays YOUR THE PRETENDER! WHAT IF I SAY I WILL NEVER SURRENDER!

Every thing about the song is just fantastic, the tempo, chorus, all if the lyrics actually, the guitar, drumming... It just deserves number 1

Heck, my Spanish teacher saw me wearing a foos tee shirt and told me how much shes loves the foos and shes going to their concert in November!

3 Best of You Best of You Cover Art

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.

Beautiful! One of my favorite songs.

Everyone loves this song because everyone's been there sometimes and can relate to the lyrics. Plus impressive guitars and chorus - you've got great hit at band's most emotional level.

4 Learn to Fly Learn to Fly Cover Art

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"

Love the foo fight and absolutely love this song - Foo Fighters and Dave in particular are just genius and I don't know what modern music would look like without their music.

"Learn to fly" is a favorite because of a personal connection I feel to the lyrics. Choosing favorites from foo fighter songs just doesn't feel right though. Anyone agree?

5 My Hero My Hero Cover Art

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.

6 Walk Walk Cover Art

Perfect guitars perfect drums perfect vocals perfect everything!

Great melody, great lyrics... my fave off the new album.

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

Perfect anthem for any person making any kind of transition in their life. Upbeat and so damn inspirational. Keeps you fighting and loving life!

7 Monkey Wrench Monkey Wrench Cover Art

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!

Lmao, Wheels isn't crap you buffoon, it is one of their absolute best songs and it isn't as mainstream as say Rope or Everlong. The beat on Wheels is legendary but yes Monkey Wrench should not only be ahead of it but TOP of the entire list. VOTE!

8 All My Life All My Life Cover Art

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

The Foo Fighters are incomplete without All My Life. It perfectly merges the quiet verse into loud chorus formula that they do so well, the riff is catchy, and it's explosive and begging to be chanted by tens-of-thousand strong crowds! Need I say more?

9 Times Like These Times Like These Cover Art

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

Foo Fighters are the best rock band out there today. The intensity of Dave's singing and playing is insane. Times Like These should be in the top 5 here. Killer song!

10 Rope Rope Cover Art

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!

I love this song in my opinion the best song off the new album, From the Reverb on the on the guitar at the beginning all the way up until the drum solo near the end. Love playing along to this song, Great bass line great riffs and awesome drumming

The Contenders

11 Big Me Big Me Cover Art

Big me was the very first song I heard from Foo Fighters. Loved it from day 1 and the video is super funny... Foo Fighters style.

Originally recorded entirely by dave growl! He played every damn instrument on it! How is it not higher! Also big shout out to the foo fighters videos, which are hilarious

This should be higher

Well I Talked About it, put it on...

12 Bridge Burning Bridge Burning Cover Art

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.

There is not one song that isn't amazing on the new album

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

13 I'll Stick Around I'll Stick Around Cover Art

Great song... this was when Foo Fighters still had some Nirvana in them (Dave wrote this song while drumming for the grunge band) and when their music was a lot louder and rockier. I love wheels, this is a call, Monkey wrench and the pretender as well

Epic guitar riff is epic.

Why isn't this song top 5? Its got an intense set of lyrics and on of the best guitar riffs far none.

Should be number one by far, I mean the guitar riff on this is absolutely delicious

14 Aurora Aurora Cover Art

"Aurora" is such a huge song. It's a anthem similar to "Everlong" & "Times Like These". A pleasure to listen to.

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.

15 Wheels Wheels Cover Art

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

This song is just the best. The chorus is amazing. But my favorite part is: "Well I wanted something better man, I wished for something new. And I wanted something beutiful, I wished for something true. " If you just listen to it you'll vote for it!

16 These Days These Days Cover Art

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!

Dave Grohl is one of the most genuine musicians ever, and he is so transparent in every one of the Foo's songs. Yet in These Days, his emotion translates into the music more than in any other song of theirs. The pause before "EASY FOR YOU TO SAY" sends chills down my spine every listen of this masterpiece. Easily the most underrated song in their catalog.

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.

17 Let It Die Let It Die Cover Art

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.

Kicks into an entirely different gear and then up into another, makes you want to close your eyes and tune everything else out. Masterful

18 This is a Call This is a Call Cover Art

Everlong and The Pretender are great songs but they are overrated. This is my #1 should be in top 10

This is like the best song and its not even on the top100! It's their first single! Come on!

I concur. This song is ridiculously low on this list! Rocking song! One of my favourites from that era and easily in my top 10 Foo's songs.

Absolute joke that this isn't higher. The Original foo song! Great to mosh to!
The first single! Should be at least top 15. Come on guys

19 Long Road to Ruin Long Road to Ruin Cover Art

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!

Amazing vocals.. How is this not in the top ten...

20 Breakout Breakout Cover Art

Awesome song should be much higher. Ace music video and great part of the after dave screams breakout

This was my first Foo Fighters song, this is what pulled me into loving them so much. This song deserves to be much higher.

I can't believe that this song is so low. I never realized how good the Foo Fighters were until I heared this song. I sung this song in front of my friends and them they got into the Foo Fighters. I like it when they scream out breakout. another thing I can't beileve is This Is A Call is so low to. It is a very great song to, but Breakout is barely better

Is it serious? By far the best song...

This is the real number 1

25? Wow someone miss is putt!

21 Stacked Actors Stacked Actors Cover Art

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.

22 Arlandria Arlandria Cover Art

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.

Amazing song! Definitely a top 10 candidate with its catchy tune, inspiring lyrics and epic drum solo! Best song off Wasting Light and sure to become a favourite for years to come.

23 DOA DOA Cover Art

Can't believe this isn't in the top 10, it somehow always seems to get overlooked for some reason. Probably the best riff of any foo's track

Most underrated song. Not many people have heard of it that's why its down here. It should be in top 10

My favourite Foo Fighters song, underrated and brilliant rock song from a great album. Excellent vocals, guitar, everything

Foo has so many amazing songs...but I am blown away that DOA is never listed as one of their best! It's been one of my favorites since the first time I heard it!

24 Something from Nothing Something from Nothing Cover Art

The only reason this song is not in the top ten is because it is just over a month old

One of the greatest too fighters songs ever! This song should be in top 5 at least! How is it in 107

Starts off pretty quiet and just gets louder and rockier throughout the song. Awesome!

Interesting lyrics. The best song since "The Pretender"

25 Hey, Johnny Park! Hey, Johnny Park! Cover Art

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.

Definitely my favorite Foo's song! I love all of their albums but this album and this song specifically just blow me away> From the soft beautiful verses to that powerful chorus with Dave's signature scream, super underrated and amazing song! If you haven't heard it, check it out!

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
