Not even a Foo Fighters fan but this looks really cool. For a band who's been around for 2 decades and had awesome success in the past, it's cool to see them still trying hard to be ambitious.

Looks like Brian turned the radio off.

Pretty confused by some of the reviews I've read that gave this 1/5, 6/10, etc. There were some pretty negative stuff out there more so than excellent praise....

I said the opening guitar riff only. And I used the butt rock comparison as a jokingly stretch to compare it to the original comparison.

I brought up the term "butt rock" and I'll keep it. The opening riff has a butt rock vibe. Never said I hated it at all cause in fact I love it, I was just responding to the initial "hockey song"...
