21 Let 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

22 I'll Stick Around

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.

Extremely underrated

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 IS MY FAVOURITE SONG THAT THE FOOS HAVE EVER DONE! AMAZING GUITAR/BASS RIFF AND BETTER DYNAMIC SHIFT THAN ANY DAVE GROHL SONG EVER!

24 Big Me

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

This is the foos first big hit and it's top ten on every other list. I'm not a huge fan but am suprised to see it this low

25 I 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!

good

Kick ass bass, awesome vocals and a catchy chorus (most of which I can't hear the words of xD). Vote!

This song is awesome. It is very catchy and impossible to get out of your head. The video is awesome and it is just a freaking awesome song all around. They have so many great songs but I voted for this because it should be in the top 10 without a doubt.

27 DOA

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

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

My ringtone for 1 year and still love it, should be in the top 10s, AWESOME foo's song

Come on, 0.8%

28 No Way Back

This has got to be one of the greatest songs, it just gets people so fired up! It has to be at least higher up on this list.

I first discovered this song on the game "Madden 06" where is turned of all the songs but "No Way Back" because no other song was worthy of being played in the same game as it. To me it should be one of the classic Foo Fighters. - FooFighters

Why does nobody like this song? It was a single, had a music video, was in 2 big video games, and still? Those don't necesarily make a good song, plenty crap ones can fit that category, but still... Ridiculous

One of the best songs... This song must be in the top

29 Back & Forth

Great!

30 Alone + Easy Target

This is their most commercial sounding song from the first record in my opinion. I love this song so much! And Dave playing everything makes it sound different too.

Kurt Cobain's favourite Foo Fighters' song. That should be enough explaining.

I love the distortion of the guitars in this song.

31 Stranger Things Have Happened

This is one of the best songs I've ever listened to. Its melodies are powerful and the guitar chords make it a very catchy tune. Definitely a masterpiece!

It's a song that gives me the goosebumps! Absolutely different from the rest of the Foo songs, damn good acoustics and very deep lyrics.

This song is amazing. It isn't as adrenaline pumping as most Foo Fighters songs, but it is just perfect.

It's much less intense than their other songs, but it's my favorite by a long shot.

32 Up In Arms

Underrated song, reminds me of my teen years

The loud-soft dynamics are great in this song.

I really love how it changes from a soft, poppy sound to a hard rocking punk-ish sound!

33 Something from Nothing

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!

Best Foo Fighters song!
Makes you headbang hard, Dave proves he's a great singer, The change between calm and aggressive through the song makes it one of the best if not the best Foo Fighters song.

34 Next Year

One of the most beautiful songs I've heard in my life. Foo fighters have LOADS of amazing songs but this one is just extra special. - wolphert

Very beautiful song
My favorite

35 Generator

Everything about this song works well together. The drums, the guitar and the vocals are all given the chance to build up the pace. The talk box makes the track unique.

How on Earth does Generator get this low on the list. Its by far better than any of the Wasting Light songs and the only songs that should be in front of it are The Pretender, Everlong, Monkey Wrench, My Hero, and Learn To Fly.

This is everything you are looking for in a song.
Great Drumming, Great voice Great guitar solos I LOVE IT!

Such an underrated song! Should at least be in the top 20 in my opinion

Masterpiece

37 Erase / Replace

"Who made these promises? Who made these promisees?! ERASE! REPLACE! ERASE! REPLACE! awesome lyrics in this song I love it. Awesome guitar and screaming the chorus is just great!

Probally The Foo Fighters Most Underatted song, has great guitar playing Though

One of their best and most nderrated. Full of power and greed.

38 Enough Space

Awesome song, might be the best opening song they ever wrote. The way it builds up and grows bigger and bigger really makes it hard not to headbang every time I hear it!

39 The Feast and the Famine

Love this song. Just came out yesterday and it already is among my top 20. The Foo's are definitely still alive.

Amazing song, really love the entire Sonic Highways album though...

This song deserves a far higher position than 79

40 Low

How can anyone NOT like this!? This should be in the top 10! VOTE!

Wow... Just wow... How is this not in the top 20? This deserves at least 15. This is one of their greatest songs from one of their greatest albums. This amazing song is way too low in the list... So punny.

Very underrated. Awesome beat, no incredible beat. Oh, and the music video is hilarious! Top 20 at least!

This is my favourite song of all time! I can't believe it's not higher
