Memories keep haunting me/Help me chase them all away,” Grohl pleads on Wasting Light, through the guitar rain of “Arlandria,” sounding like a guy who knows there will never be enough amps and distortion in the world to drown out the unanswered whys in his head. Recording of the album began September 6, 2010, [5] lasting for eleven weeks, each one focusing on a particular song, [13] something Vig stated "was good because each song kinda had its own life". Let’s change the subject to someone else,” Dave Grohl suggests in a brief quiet space, between bursts of high-speed riffing, in “A Matter of Time.

They will forever be derided for not using any original ingredients, yet when you consider how instantly recognisable the Foo's sound is you have to wonder if all the comparisons miss the point.
