On the night that Dave Grohl (correctly) collects the God Like Genius Award at the NME Awards it seems only right that tonight’s post is dedicated to Foo Fighters’ new song Rope which premiered on Radio 1 earlier today. If you heard last week’s demo White Limo you would be forgiven for expecting this new offering to be an onslaught of sound; in fact it’s not. Don’t get me wrong it’s still epic, but it’s less of a metal sound. In fact, personally, I think it sounds more like some of their older stuff; I can’t help but hear shades of Monkey Wrench coming through in the chorus. It sounds like classic Foo Fighters and is a promising sign that Wasting Light is going to be worth the wait. If, as everyone seems convinced of, rock music really is dead, someone forgot to tell Dave Grohl!
