Concrete and Gold is the ninth studio album by American rock band Foo Fighters. It was produced by Greg Kurstin and released worldwide on September 15, 2017, through RCA Records. Described by the band as an album where "hard rock extremes and pop sensibilities collide", Concrete and Gold concerns the future of the United States from the viewpoint of the band's frontman and lead songwriter Dave Grohl, with the heated atmosphere of the 2016 elections and the presidency of Donald Trump cited as major influences by Grohl. Juxtapositions serve as a common motif in both the album's lyrical and musical composition, with Grohl further describing the album's overall theme as "hope and desperation".

Writing and recording of Concrete and Gold started in late 2016, after Grohl ended a self-imposed six-month hiatus from music while recovering from an injury sustained on the Sonic Highways World Tour. Working off a set of twelve or thirteen ideas for songs conceived by Grohl, the band enlisted the help of Kurstin, a pop music producer, who had never worked on a heavy rock record previously. The studio at which the band chose to record Concrete and Gold, EastWest Studios in Hollywood, California, fostered collaborations with various other artists who were also working at the studio at the time, including Shawn Stockman of Boyz II Men, Justin Timberlake, and Paul McCartney. It is the first Foo Fighters studio album to feature long-time session and touring keyboardist Rami Jaffee as a permanent member.

Concrete and Gold was received positively by music critics, who praised the album's more expansive feel, both musically and lyrically. Modest criticism was aimed at the perceived lack of musical deviation from the band's previous albums. The album became the band's second to debut at number one on the Billboard 200, moving 127,000 album-equivalent units and selling 120,000 copies in its first week in the United States. The album also debuted at number one on twelve other national album charts, such as the United Kingdom Official Albums Chart and Australian ARIA Albums Chart. Singles from the album also found success; "Run" and "The Sky Is a Neighborhood" both peaked at number one at the Billboard Mainstream Rock Songs chart. An eponymous headlining tour to promote the album ran through the second half of 2017.

Background

Dave Grohl performing with a broken leg on the Sonic Highways World Tour.

The band's earliest ideas for their ninth studio album included creating a studio on the Hollywood Bowl amphitheater in California and recording the album live in front of a crowd of 20,000 people.[6] However, frontman Dave Grohl lost interest in the idea upon learning that it had already recently been done by PJ Harvey with her 2015 recording sessions for her album The Hope Six Demolition Project.[6] Plans further changed due to the events of the band touring in support of their prior studio album, Sonic Highways, when Grohl fell off the stage and broke his leg at a June 2015 concert in Sweden.[7][8] Through the use of a self-designed "throne", a large chair that could sit him comfortably on stage, Grohl and the band completed the tour and recorded the Saint Cecilia EP and song.[9][10]

After the tour, in early 2016, the band announced they would enter an indefinite hiatus.[11] While no reasons were given at the time, in 2017, Grohl told Rolling Stone that he was still struggling from the injury, still unable to walk and enduring daily, lengthy physical therapy sessions.[12] He secluded himself from the band, and set a goal for himself to stay away from music for an entire year while he focused on recuperating. However, at six months to the day, he cancelled the plan when he began writing the lyrics to the track "Run".[12]

Writing and recording

"The last couple of albums had been made in ways that we were trying to get out of our comfort zone. I thought, 'What's the strangest thing for this band to do at this point?' And then I realized it was just to go into a studio and make a fucking album like a normal band."

—Frontman Dave Grohl, comparing the Concrete and Gold recording sessions to 2014's Sonic Highways, which was recorded in different studios around the U.S., and 2011's Wasting Light, which they did in Grohl's garage to emulate the recording process of the 1990s and earlier.[12]

Initial writing sessions only involved Grohl, who continued being in seclusion from the band, although he initially struggled, feeling "out of practice" and "creatively atrophied" due to his longer than usual break from music.[12] Grohl rented an Airbnb in Ojai, California, so he could focus on long bouts of writing, with Grohl recounting "I brought a case of wine and sat there in my underwear with a microphone for about five days, just writing."[12] After twelve or thirteen rough ideas were mapped out, he ran them by the band, who shared Grohl's belief that he was on the right track with the material.[12] Happy with his work, but feeling the material still required further development, Grohl started thinking about reaching out to a music producer.[12]

The band ended up working with music producer Greg Kurstin on the album.[13] Grohl had been listening to the work of Kurstin's indie pop band, The Bird and the Bee since 2014 and was very impressed with his work, calling it "so much more sophisticated than anything [he'd] ever heard."[5] Grohl reached out to Kurstin, and learned that he had taken a hiatus from The Bird and the Bee to focus on his work as a music producer, producing songs including Halsey's "Strangers", Sia's "The Greatest" and "Cheap Thrills" and Adele's "Hello".[5] The two both were interested in the challenge presented with working together – Kurstin had never worked on a heavy rock album, while Grohl had never worked with a pop songwriter – and decided to collaborate on the album.[5]

Justin Timberlake (left) and Paul McCartney (right) were two of many musicians the band interacted and collaborated with during the recording of Concrete and Gold at EastWest Studios.

Recording was done at the heavily populated EastWest Studios, where the band frequently ran into, and interacted with, various other musicians in the studio building.[7] Recording sessions frequently culminated in large barbecues and alcohol drinking among the other artists using the studios, often leading to Grohl grilling meat for parties of up to forty people while finishing up recording sessions.[14] The setup led to the band having a number of high-profile collaborations on the album. The band worked with Boyz II Men member Shawn Stockman on the album's title track and album closer, which stemmed from a chance meeting between Grohl and Stockman in the parking lot.[15] Grohl also announced that "probably the biggest pop star in the world" would provide backing vocals on a track as well, though he refused to name who, leading to much speculation due to the number of pop stars Kurstin had previously worked with prior to the Foo Fighters.[16] Grohl later clarified that it was not Adele or Taylor Swift, and that the person has "been around a long time",[7] and eventually revealed it to be Justin Timberlake.[17] Further collaborations include vocals by Inara George on the track "Dirty Water", saxophone by David Koz on the track "La Dee Da", and vocals by Alison Mosshart of The Kills on "La Dee Da" and "The Sky Is a Neighborhood".[7] Additionally, Paul McCartney contributed drums to the track "Sunday Rain" after entering the studio and recording two drum tracks without even hearing the song first, basing his performance entirely on Grohl recreating the song acoustically for him on the spot.[18] Concrete and Gold also marks Rami Jaffee's first credit as an official band member, having been a session and touring keyboardist for the band since 2005.[19]

While not a formal collaborator on the album, Grohl also would travel to visit past collaborator Josh Homme of Queens of the Stone Age during the recording sessions as well, who was working in the nearby United Recording music studio.[20] The two often played in-progress material for each other, as each was working on a new approach of recording a rock album with a pop music producer, Homme doing the same thing with music producer Mark Ronson on the album Villains.[20]

Composition and themes

The band describe the album's sound as where "hard rock extremes and pop sensibilities collide",[21] comparing it conceptually to being "Motorhead's version of Sgt. Pepper"[22] or "Slayer making Pet Sounds".[23] Explaining further, the album's sound was described as combining heavy guitar riffs with "lush harmonic complexities".[24] Hawkins added that in contrast to their mindset in the previous albums going to "let's make a good rock n' roll record", Concrete and Gold was "the weird record."[25] Grohl described the title track, which features the vocals of Shawn Stockman from Boyz II Men, as sounding like "Black Sabbath and Pink Floyd" and explaining that they "built a choir" out of Stockman's vocal takes, overdubbing them so it sounds "like 40 vocals stacked".[15] Hawkins described the album as their "most psychedelic" and "weirdest" sounding.[14]

The political atmosphere surrounding the presidency of Donald Trump was cited as an influence on Concrete and Gold's lyrics.

Lyrically, the album is based around Grohl's thoughts about the future of the United States – "politically, personally, as a father, an American and a musician".[12] While the lyrics were written to vent Grohl's political frustrations, the album lyrics themselves are not overtly-political.[14] Grohl also stated an overall theme of the album was “hope and desperation”.[25] "The Sky Is a Neighborhood" and "T-Shirt" represent a more bleak worldview by Grohl's, the two songs showing his concern for the future of humanity, and desire for escapism, respectively.[12] The election and presidency of Donald Trump[26] was cited as a huge influence of Grohl's negativity, with Grohl stating:

I look at all of the different periods of time where I've written lyrics, and they all have their own references and different phases. This one came out pretty clear: I'm a father now, I have to consider a lot more than I used to, and I think I've realised we're not all as free as we were before. In every way. I mean, as the political arena started heating up in America before the elections, it became clear that there was so much more threatening all of our lives than I'd considered before. I'm looking at a candidate that has blatant disregard for the future environmentally, when it comes to women's rights, diplomatically. ... I have three daughters that are going to survive me for decades – how are they going to get on unless there's some positive and progressive change?

Release and promotion

The album was released on September 15, 2017.[27] Two singles were released prior to the album's release, "Run", which topped the US Billboard Mainstream Rock Songs chart in July 2017, and "The Sky Is a Neighborhood", which is at number 13 on the chart.[27][28] A third song, "The Line", was also released a week prior to the album,[29] and tracks such as "La Dee Da" had been debuted at live shows earlier in 2017.[30] The band commenced a headlining North American tour in support of the album starting in October 2017.[31] Prior to the tour, the band also plans on throwing their own festival – "Cal Jam 17" – with performances from themselves, Queens of the Stone Age, Cage the Elephant, and a number of other bands,[32] as a large-scale version of an album-release party.[12] Promotions will continue into 2018, including a joint touring with Weezer through Australia and New Zealand in January and February.[33] On October 20, 2017, the band released a previously unreleased b-side song from the album sessions, "Soldier", for the Planned Parenthood benefit compilation album 7-Inches for Planned Parenthood.[34] The third single from the album, "The Line" was released on May 1, 2018.

Critical response

Concrete and Gold received generally positive reviews from critics. At Metacritic, which assigns a normalized rating out of 100 to reviews from mainstream critics, the album has an average score of 72 out of 100, which indicates "generally favorable reviews" based on 29 reviews.[36]

In his review for AllMusic, editor Stephen Thomas Erlewine concluded that "Foo Fighters show that they're in love with light and shade, fury and quiet, every twist and turn they can make with their instruments, and even if Concrete and Gold isn't about much more than that, it's refreshing to hear the Foos embrace to the logical flashing conclusion of Grohl's allegiance to real rock values."[37] Writing for Classic Rock magazine, Mark Beaumont praised the album for being the "most cohesive consume-in-one-sitting Foo Fighters album in a decade" and concluded that "Grohl does emerge from the modern age with some glimmer of optimism and defiance... If Dave Grohl is an enduring icon of rocking through the hard times, we need him – and Concrete And Gold – now more than ever."[1]

Newsday critic Glenn Gamboa praised Kurstin's production on the album, and the band as well for successfully expressing grander and more artistic statements than past albums.[47] Jon Pareles of The New York Times praised the band's ability to make something new out of all of their influences, concluding that "Mr. Grohl and Foo Fighters wear their influences so openly — Pink Floyd in 'Concrete and Gold', Led Zeppelin in 'Make It Right', the Beatles all over the album — that they still come across as earnest, proficient journeymen, disciples rather than trailblazers. But in 2017, there aren’t even many disciples left, while Foo Fighters keep honing their skills."[48]

In a more reserved review for The Guardian, Alexis Petridis wrote, "Concrete and Gold sees the Foo Fighters gently and enjoyably nudge at the boundaries of what they do, rather than crashing through them to new territory. It’s an album that won’t frighten the horses, but provides enough fresh interest to keep the band ticking over: for the Foo Fighters, you suspect, that means mission accomplished."[39] Emma Swann gave the album a three-out-of-five star rating in her review for DIY, calling it "more interesting than one might’ve expected."[49]

Commercial performance

The album debuted at number one on the Billboard 200 all-format album chart with 127,000 album-equivalent units, of which 120,000 were digital and physical album sales.[50] It is Foo Fighters' second US number-one album, after Wasting Light.[50] Concrete and Gold also became the Foo Fighters' fourth number-one album in the United Kingdom's Official Albums Chart, with 61,000 album-equivalent units,[51] and their seventh in Australia's ARIA Charts, where it soon got certified gold for 35,000 units.[52]

Foo Fighters sind eine US-amerikanische Rockband. Prominentestes Mitglied und Band-Gründer ist der ehemalige Nirvana-Schlagzeuger Dave Grohl.

Geschichte

Gründungsjahre und Formierung einer Band (1994–1996)

Foo Fighters live bei Rock am Ring 2018

Bereits während seiner Zeit bei Nirvana schrieb Dave Grohl zahlreiche eigene Stücke. Bis auf Marigold (1993, B-Seite von Heart-Shaped Box) fand jedoch keine Komposition des Musikers den Weg ins Repertoire der Band. Nach dem Tod des Frontmanns Kurt Cobain und der daraus folgenden Auflösung der Band nahm Grohl ein Demo-Tape auf, für das er alle Instrumente mit Ausnahme des Gitarrenparts eines Liedes (X-Static, mit von The Afghan Whigs) komplett selbst einspielte. 1995 wurde das Demo als Foo Fighters veröffentlicht. Dass Grohl überhaupt das Projekt Foo Fighters begann, hat er, wie er in einem Interview mit MTV sagte, seinem Psychologen zu verdanken. Dieser motivierte ihn demnach, die Musik nicht aufzugeben. Der Bandname bezieht sich auf das Phänomen der Foo-Fighter.

Grohls Solodebüt sowie die Singles This Is a Call, I’ll Stick Around, For All the Cows und Big Me stiegen alle auf Anhieb in die US-Charts ein. Um mit dem Album Promotion machen und auf Tournee gehen zu können, stellte Grohl noch im gleichen Jahr eine Band zusammen, die zunächst aus dem ehemaligen Nirvana-Tour- und The-Germs-Gitarristen Pat Smear sowie der Sunny-Day-Real-Estate-Rhythmusgruppe – Bassist Nate Mendel und Schlagzeuger William Goldsmith – bestand.

Erfolg mit The Colour and the Shape und There Is Nothing Left to Lose (1997–1999)

Diese waren auch an den Aufnahmen zum zweiten Album beteiligt. Während der Aufnahmen kam es jedoch zu einem Streit zwischen Grohl und Goldsmith, der letztendlich zu dessen Rausschmiss führte. Nach der Veröffentlichung von The Colour and the Shape im Mai 1997 wurde Taylor Hawkins als neuer Schlagzeuger engagiert, der vorher für Alanis Morissette tätig war. Auf dem Album selbst spielte Grohl beinahe alle Schlagzeugparts selbst ein; einzig in zwei Stücken ist noch Goldsmith zu hören. Auch Pat Smear stieg aus der Band aus. Ihn ersetzte zunächst (Ex-Scream-Mitglied) und schließlich Chris Shiflett von No Use for a Name. 1999 erschien das dritte Album There Is Nothing Left to Lose, das Hit-Singles wie Learn To Fly und Breakout enthielt und bei den Grammys als bestes Rock-Album (2001) ausgezeichnet wurde.

One by One, In Your Honor und Echoes, Silence, Patience and Grace (2000–2007)

2000 arbeitete Grohl hauptsächlich an seinem eigenen Heavy-Metal-Projekt namens Probot und tourte als Schlagzeuger mit den Queens of the Stone Age. Zeitgleich begab sich Taylor Hawkins wegen zunehmender Drogenprobleme in eine mehrmonatige Behandlung. 2001 begannen die Aufnahmen zu One by One, dem vierten Album. Es wurde 2002 veröffentlicht. Als Gast ist unter anderem der Queen-Gitarrist Brian May im Lied Tired of You zu hören.

Im US-Wahlkampf 2004 unterstützte die Band den demokratischen Präsidentschaftskandidaten John Kerry mit mehreren Live-Auftritten. Sie tat dies als Reaktion darauf, dass George W. Bush ihren Titel Times Like These für seine Kundgebungen benutzte. Im Frühjahr 2005 erschien In Your Honor, ein Doppelalbum, das neben zehn Stücken im klassischen Foo-Fighters-Stil ebenso zehn Akustik-Stücke enthält. An dieser Produktion hat der Ex-Led-Zeppelin-Bassist John Paul Jones als Arrangeur und Keyboarder wesentlichen Anteil.

Nach ihrer In-Your-Honor-Welttournee (Ende 2005/Anfang 2006) hatte die Band eine kleine Akustik-Tour durch die USA und zwei europäische Städte geplant, auf der sie ihr Akustik-Set präsentierte, das aus Songs ihrer Akustik-CD und aus anderen, älteren Foo-Fighters-Liedern (z. B. Everlong, See You) im Akustik-Stil besteht.

Am 25. September 2007 erschien ihr neues Album Echoes, Silence, Patience and Grace, dessen erste Auskopplung The Pretender auf Platz 95 der deutschen Single-Charts eingestiegen ist. Für das Album (Bestes Rockalbum) und die Single (Beste Hardrock-Darbietung) gewannen die Foo Fighters am 10. Februar 2008 ihre Grammys Nummer 5 und 6 bei drei weiteren Nominierungen. Bei den Brit Awards 2008 gehörten sie mit zwei Auszeichnungen für beste Band und bestes Album international zu den erfolgreichsten Interpreten.

Pause und Rückkehr mit Wasting Light (2008–2013)

Die Foo Fighters 2009
(v.l.n.r: Hawkins, Grohl, Mendel, Shiflett; ohne Smear)

Am 17. September 2008 gab Dave Grohl bei der Chris Moyles Show bekannt, dass die Band eine längere Pause einlegen würde. Außerdem sollten ihre Fans keine neue Musik für längere Zeit erwarten. Dave Grohl kommentierte: „We've never really taken a long break, I think it's time, After doing Wembley we shouldn't come back there for 10 years because we've played to everybody. We're over in the UK every year, every summer, so I think it's time to take a break and come back over when people really miss us.“

Am 12. Februar 2009 widersprach Schlagzeuger Taylor Hawkins jedoch Grohls Aussage. So behauptete er, dass es sich hierbei keinesfalls um eine derart lange Pause handele, sondern dass die Band bereits Ideen für ihr nächstes Studioalbum sammele, welches sie im Sommer jenes Jahres produzieren würde.[1] Das Album hieß Wasting Light und wurde am 8. April 2011 veröffentlicht.[2] Die erste Single Rope wurde am 23. Februar 2011 vorgestellt. Anfang Februar 2011 war auf der Foo-Fighters-Homepage bereits bekannt gegeben worden, dass Pat Smear wieder als festes Bandmitglied dabei sei.

Anlässlich des Record Store Day veröffentlichte die Band am 16. April 2011 das Album Medium Rare, für das die Foo Fighters Coverversionen von Liedern von u. a. Hüsker Dü, Pink Floyd, Thin Lizzy und Cream eingespielt haben. Das Album ist auf 2.000 Stück limitiert und ausschließlich als Schallplatte (Vinyl) erschienen.

Im Film Thor (2011) wird in der Szene in der Thor und Selvig in einer Bar sitzen und beim Abspann das Stück Walk gespielt.

Am 6. September 2012 trat die Band auf der Democratic National Convention in Charlotte zur Nominierung von Barack Obama für die Präsidentschaftswahl in den Vereinigten Staaten 2012 auf.[3] Am 2. Oktober 2012 kündigte die Band an, dass bis auf unbestimmte Zeit keine Konzerte mehr gespielt würden. Es sei nicht klar, wann die Band wieder zusammen spielen würde, es sei jedoch keinesfalls eine Trennung, teilte Frontsänger Dave Grohl mit.[4] Doch schon am 20. Februar 2013 kündigte Dave Grohl an, dass die Band in derselben Woche noch ins Studio gehen wird.[5]

Sonic Highways (2014) und Saint Cecilia EP (2015)

Am 10. November 2014 wurde das achte Studioalbum veröffentlicht, welches nach Angaben Dave Grohls eine völlig neue Richtung einschlagen sollte.[6] Der Titel des Albums lautet Sonic Highways. Es wurde in acht US-amerikanischen Aufnahmestudios produziert. Die Aufnahmen wurden von einem Kamerateam begleitet und zusammen mit Interviews mit bekannten Musikern und Informationen zur musikalischen Geschichte der jeweiligen Stadt zu einer Serie des Kabelsenders HBO verarbeitet, die den gleichen Namen wie das Album trägt.[7] In Deutschland konnte man die Serie auf dem Pay-TV-Sender Spiegel Geschichte sehen.

Die ab November 2014 laufende Sonic Highways World Tour wurde am 12. Juni 2015 in Göteborg (Schweden) von einem Unfall überschattet, bei dem Dave Grohl bereits nach dem zweiten Lied von der Bühne stürzte und sich dabei das Bein brach. Zur Verwunderung aller spielte er das Konzert jedoch in eingegipstem Bein und Arzt auf der Bühne zu Ende.[8] Daraufhin wurden einige Konzerte in Europa, darunter auch zwei Auftritte im Wembley-Stadion und der Headline-Auftritt beim Glastonbury Festival, abgesagt.

Foo Fighters spielte im Juli 2015 in Boston. Dave Grohl sitzt wegen seines gebrochenen Beins auf einem motorisierten Stuhl.

Das erste Konzert nach dem Beinbruch war am 4. Juli 2015 in Washington D.C. Fortgesetzt wurde die Sonic Highways World Tour dann unter dem Namen "Break-a-leg Tour". Die restlichen Auftritte in den USA und Europa spielte Dave Grohl dann auf einem von ihm im Krankenhaus entworfenem Thron.

Nochmals überschattet wurde die Tour im November von den Terroranschlägen in Paris, wo die Band kurz darauf spielen sollte. Aus Solidarität zu den Opfern sagten die Foo Fighters jedoch die letzten drei Konzerte ab und bedankten sich danach mit der Veröffentlichung der Saint Cecilia EP bei den Fans.[9]

Gerüchte einer möglichen Trennung (2015)

Nach dem persönlichen Brief von Dave Grohl, der bei der Saint Cecilia EP beilag und einigen Soloauftritten der Bandmitglieder kamen Trennungsgerüchte auf. Die Band widerlegte diese jedoch mit einem Youtube-Video. Darin heißt es, dass die Band zwar eine Auszeit brauche, sich jedoch niemals trennen werde.[10]

Aktuelle Schaffensphase (seit 2017)

Im Juni 2017 kündigte die Band ihr neues Album mit der Veröffentlichung der Single Run an. Das Album erschien am 15. September. Außerdem gehört der Keyboarder Rami Jaffee nunmehr offiziell zur Band.[11]

Anlässlich der Grammy Awards 2020 fand am 28. Januar 2020 im Los Angeles Convention Center in Los Angeles ein Tribut-Konzert für Prince unter dem Motto „Let’s Go Crazy: The Grammy Salute to Prince“ statt, bei dem die Foo Fighters den Song Darling Nikki (1984) aus dem Album Purple Rain sangen. Das Konzert wurde am 21. April 2020, dem vierten Todestag von Prince, im US-Fernsehen ausgestrahlt.[12][13]

Besetzungen

Musikvideos

Eine besondere Bedeutung in der Geschichte der Foo Fighters hatten von Anfang an die Videos zu den Singles. So bürgerte sich auf Grund des Videos zu Big Me (1996) – einer Parodie der berühmten Mentos-Werbung – die Sitte ein, Dave Grohl auf Konzerten mit ebendiesen Süßigkeiten zu bewerfen, was heute auf Bitte des Sängers aber praktisch niemand mehr macht.

Zu ihrem zweiten Album gab es unter anderem das unter der Regie von Michel Gondry produzierte Everlong, das eine Geschichte in verschiedenen Traumrealitäten erzählt.

Im Video zu ihrer Hitsingle Learn to Fly (1999) spielt jedes Bandmitglied verschiedene Personen an Bord eines Flugzeugs, dessen Crew ebenso wie fast alle Passagiere versehentlich vom Reinigungspersonal (gespielt von Jack Black und Kyle Gass von Tenacious D) unter Drogen gesetzt wurde. 2001 wurde dieses Werk mit einem Grammy ausgezeichnet.

Das Video zu Low (2003) zeigt Grohl und erneut Jack Black als Special Interests-auslebende Rednecks. Die beiden fahren zu einem einsamen Motel aufs Land, um dort verkleidet eine exzessive Sex- und Drogennacht zu verbringen. Daher wurde es von den meisten Musiksendern nicht ausgestrahlt.

Zur ersten Single von In Your Honor, Best of You (2005), wurde unter der Regie von Mark Pellington ein Performancevideo mit einer Collage aus verschiedenen TV-Bildern vermischt.

Im Video zu Long Road to Ruin (2007) zeigen die Foo Fighters erneut ihren Hang zu Verkleidungen, das unter anderem eine Persiflage von Soaps aus den 1970er Jahren zeigt.

Im Video zu White Limo (2011) spielt Lemmy Kilmister von Motörhead den Chauffeur, außerdem wurde dieses Video mit einer handelsüblichen Digitalkamera abgedreht.

Das Video zu Walk (2011) ist eine Adaption des Films Falling Down mit Michael Douglas. Dave Grohl schlüpft hierbei in die Rolle des Krawattenträgers, der im Stau stehend die Nerven verliert und zu Fuß einen Gang der eskalierenden Gewalt beginnt.

Einen Hang zu Verkleidungen in ihren Videos sieht man erneut in dem Video zu Run (2017). Die Band ist verkleidet als Bewohner eines Pflegeheims für Senioren, die versuchen aus dem Heim auszubrechen. Verschiedene Kritiker sehen dies als Hommage an den Film Einer flog über das Kuckucksnest.[14] Dave Grohl selbst führte Regie. Es wurde für den MTV European Music Award in der Kategorie Bestes Video nominiert.[15]
