As the Foo Bandits head to their final tour, this article will highlight some of their greatest hits and share some of the lesser-known songs about their music.
Here’s a selection of songs you might not know about the band: 1.
“I Can’t Get You Back” – The Foo Fighters The song was originally written for a movie about a guy who had to deal with being the lead singer of the Foo Foos.
The song’s lyrics were inspired by the fact that he didn’t get enough love, but the song itself was inspired by an experience he had as a kid: “I used to spend most of the day just playing in the backyard, I used to play with my friends in the front yard, and I just never got any kind of love, ever.
And so I was just living in my head.
And I used that feeling to start thinking about things that I could do with my life, so I started writing this song.”
The song is now known as the song that inspired the movie “A Hard Day’s Night,” but it was also the song on which the band’s song “Never Gonna Give You Up” was based.
“Let’s Get Together” – Foo Fighters album cover photo “I think that the idea that you’re in this band, and you’re trying to make your mark on the world, is something that we’re always trying to push in our music,” Foo Fighters singer Chris Cornell told Billboard in 2014.
“The whole thing is just a way of getting people to want to be part of a group that is trying to do something meaningful and that is something I think is really important.”

We’re going to be in this song forever.”
