Possibly it’s my age, however it’s nonetheless one thing that causes me to marvel that the Foo Fighters are very a lot nonetheless with us, and at the moment are of their third decade. How lengthy is that? Properly, put it this fashion, I purchased their first, self-titled album the week it got here out in 1995, the day earlier than college completed endlessly.
They’ve delighted on report, in live performance – and certainly in music video. The tongue in cheek video for ‘Large Me’ or the Jack Black that includes ‘Low’ or ‘Studying To Fly’ confirmed they had been a band who may use the artform and have somewhat enjoyable with it.
The video for his or her new single ‘Run’ exhibits no signal of this stopping anytime quickly. With a sentiment about getting outdated however not taking any crap that hasn’t been proven a lot since Pulp‘s ‘Assist The Aged’ (bloody hell, that’s 20 years outdated now as effectively), the six-minute-plus promo sees the now six-piece exhibiting that there’s no hurt available in rocking out, and taking no prisoners whereas they do it. With out wishing to present an excessive amount of away, the band function as a part of a bunch of aged miscreants who trigger havoc in a church earlier than carjacking some youngsters. As you do. Pipe and slippers can wait.
There ain’t a lot justice on this world, however the band’s first new music because the Saint Cecilia EP in late 2015 exhibits simply why they’re nonetheless so extremely regarded, and this deserves to be one of many anthems of the summer time.
