Listen: Foo Fighters – Rope

Open wide and say “Ahhhhh!” The new single from Foo Fighters, “Rope,” is now available for you to check out.

How to describe the song? Well it’s not as hard as “White Limo” but still just as good. It almost has a “Learn To Fly” feel to it as far as the tempo of the song goes. Distorted guitars are the leaders of the song as Dave Grohl’s vocals start on a lower register before climbing into the hook that features the words, “Gimme some rope.” But my favorite part of the song, at 2:51 into it, is the breakdown. Just when you think the song may be over, it blasts you away with a mix of ass kicking drums and a guitar combo before heading back into the track full steam. Listen to it down below and get ready for their new album, Wasting Light, to be released on April 12th.

    YES YES YES YES YES YES. Amazing. How can you come out with something this good following your Greatest hits album… most bands either suck after or are toning it down for retirement. But here they come full blast.

    Awesome song!!
    Really like this, and I prefer this over White Limo. That song kinda scarred me a little, I feared they would do the whole album in that style. Don’t get me wrong, it’s awesome as a stand-out track on the album, but a whole album like that would be too much.
    I also really like the guitar solo. The song definitely has more of a pop feel, but most pop songs don’t feature guitar solos these days.
    Well done Foo Fighters. This is radio-friendly and it’s gonna be a hit. Or at least it should, if it doesn’t succeed it’s because people’s taste suck these days!!!
    Foo Fighters ROCK!!!!
