Foo Fighters Greatest Hits – Tracklist Revealed – Out Nov. 3

September 21, 2009

Career-Spanning Collection With Two Newly-Recorded Tracks – Out Nov 3.

The track listing and contents of Foo Fighters’ Greatest Hits have
been confirmed, for both a 16-track standard edition as well as a
deluxe version featuring a DVD encompassing a select videography of
the band’s classic clips as well as live performances captured at
Wembley Stadium, Hyde Park, the intimate Skin + Bones theater tour and
more–not to mention a few possible treats for Easter egg hunters. The
deluxe edition will also include a 28-page bound book featuring
numerous never before seen photos chronicling the band’s 15-year history.
Both the standard and deluxe configurations, as well as a collectors 180
gram vinyl edition, will be released November 3 on Roswell/RCA.

In addition to the dozen-plus anthems that have charted the band’s
rise to Grammy winning, multi-platinum, arena and stadium headlining
status the world over, Foo Fighters’ Greatest Hits features two newly
recorded songs available only on this compilation: The new single
“Wheels” and “Word Forward”–both recorded especially for this
collection at the band’s own fabled 606 studio complex with producer
Butch Vig. “Wheels” is also the subject of the latest soon to be
classic Foo Fighters video, appropriately included on the deluxe DVD
and reuniting the band with director Sam Brown who lensed the
unforgettable clip for “The Pretender.”

Greatest Hits covers every phase of the 15-year-and-counting run that
began with 1995’s Foo Fighters, with its classic singles “This Is A
Call” and “Big Me,” and has since yielded six platinum-plus records
and as many Grammys . The double-platinum The Colour & The Shape,
originally issued in 1997 and since reissued in a deluxe 10th
anniversary edition is recalled here not only by “Monkeywrench,”
“Everlong” and “My Hero,” but by the first ever studio recording of
“Everlong (acoustic).” Consecutive Best Rock Album Grammy winners
There Is Nothing Left To Lose (1999) and One By One (2002) are
represented by two pairs of classics respectively: “”Learn To Fly” and
“Breakout,” and “All My Life” and “Times Like These,” while 2005’s two-
disc electric/acoustic 10th anniversary opus In Your Honor yields the
perennial FF final encore “Best Of You.” The intimate 2006 acoustically
augmented theater tour documented on the Skin + Bones album and DVD
is commemorated here by that collection’s title track.
Greatest Hits is completed by “The Pretender” and “Long Road To
Ruin,” a double shot from 2007’s Echoes, Silence, Patience & Grace,
which earned the Foos their third Best Rock Album Grammy and set off
the band’s biggest ever headlining tour, which peaked with a two-night
stand at London’s Wembley Stadium attended by 165,000 fans-setting the
venue’s two-night attendance record-and immortalized on the 18-song
Foo Fighters: Live At Wembley Stadium DVD.
