Rope

Single Release

The band releases Rope, from their album, Wasting Light. Grohl:

We shot the video… in a big sound stage in Los Angeles. And we had to build this cube out of fabric and wood for the band to play within, and it’s lit from outside, and then, there’s a part in the video where it’s actually revealed that we’re inside this weird white cube. At first it just seems like we’re in this glowing white room from within, and then towards the end, the big reveal is we’re in this room, which is within a massive room.

Times Like These

Single Release

The band releases Times Like These, from their album, One by One. After George W. Bush uses the song in 2004 in his presidential campaign rallies, Grohl:

I was personally offended that George Bush was using Times Like These. I know what I’m singing about and it basically mirrored what John Kerry’s campaign was trying to represent.

Breakout

Single Release

The band releases Breakout, from There Is Nothing Left To Lose. Grohl:

Breakout started off almost as a joke, just a play on the word and taking the piss out of your typical tortured romance love story. It’s supposed to seem kind of ridiculous because I can’t imagine anyone wanting to break off a relationship just because they have acne.

Learn To Fly

Single Release

The band releases their song, Learn To Fly, from their album, There Is Nothing Left To Lose. Grohl:

It’s about the search for some sort of inspiration, the search for signs of life that will make you feel alive. It’s actually one of my least favorite songs on the record.

It’s about living with someone and feeling like you’re living in a f–king cell. And then I wound up getting a divorce.
