Foo Fighters [Wasting Light Live from 606]

The Foo Fighters have been around for over 15 years. After the death of iconic Nirvana frontman Kurt Cobain, drummer Dave Grohl picked up a guitar and formed the alt-rock heavyweights Foo Fighters. 

They released their seventh album Wasting Light in 2011. The album was a return to their roots musically, as it was recorded entirely on analog equipment. Nothing digital. Nothing "current," for lack of a better word. 

They also recorded it in the garage of Dave Grohl's house, as opposed to their very own recording studio they had built a few years earlier, Studio 606. It also reunited Grohl with producer Butch Vig, who had worked with Nirvana on their breakthrough Nevermind album. 

To get the word out about the album, the band performed the set live at Studio 606 and posted it on YouTube. That video is above. 

Foo Fighters have been one of my favorite bands for a while, and I feel like this performance shows why. They are an awesome band, both in the studio and live. A lot of bands can't maintain the quality of their recorded sound in a live performance. And the Foo Fighters can do that. I enjoy listening to their live sets, something I can't say about a lot of bands. 

 Check it out. Enjoy.
