Foo Fighters - These Days
Sometimes you find a song that you'd swear on your dinner that you've heard before. The latest single from Foo Fighters - These Days - is one such song.
In a pic n mix of some of the bands best moments from the past decade, its greatest merit is what can only be called a recycling of rock hooks. After all, why use a good song idea when you can go back and use it again?
Times Like These... one of These Days? They all amount to the same end result, in the same way that two and two can only ever equal four.
In other bands, it would be so easy to level the finger of tired self-plagiarising, but in the case of the Foos - the band (Grohl in particular), have constructed such a loveable image of everyone's favourite rock band, we're all there to forgive them for releasing a song like this.
The simple truth? The Foos just do this stuff so damn well.
These Days is released on the 12th December.
