No Son Of Mine
Foo Fighters backstory
One of the biggest bands on the planet. End of.
Dave Grohl and co. continue to drive the stadium rock agenda with a talent for huge hooks, monster riffs and festival-ready anthems capable of straddling genres.
Since rising from the ashes of Nirvana in 1994 an unbroken run of form has seen the Foos release nine studio albums — eight of which landed inside the UK’s top 10 with four of the last six hitting top spot.
No Son Of Mine is the second single from forthcoming long player Medicine At Midnight.
In Dave Grohl’s own words:
“This is the kind of song that just resides in all of us and if it makes sense at the time, we let it out.
“Lyrically it’s meant to poke at the hypocrisy of self-righteous leaders — people who are guilty of committing the crimes they’re supposedly against…”
The verdict on No Son Of Mine
Grohl rings in the New Year with a typically unapologetic blast of social commentary underpinned by swirling 70s-style keys and an almost psychedelic, fuzzed up riff.
Another earworm of a track from the band’s forthcoming album is relentlessly critical and reassuringly real set against a backdrop of post-Trump (almost) America.
And hints of QOTSA and early 80s Metallica will keep fans keen.
More Foos for thought from a band that demands to be heard.
What’s next for the Foos?
New album Medicine At Midnight is released on February 5 via Roswell/Columbia records.
Its 37 minutes of action already has the critics purring with the band expected to debut the material live this summer.
Seven European festival dates have been announced for June and July – Covid-19 restrictions permitting.
