The Foo Fighters Song Gene Simmons Listed As His Favorite

While former Nirvana drummer Dave Grohl initially formed Foo Fighters as a solo project in 1994 following the disbandment of his band, it soon turned into a group with the addition of new members. Yet, it was around 1999 that the group could finally settle on a classic lineup that would bring them remarkable success in the coming years. When the band’s lineup consolidated, they acquired a signature sound built upon the heavy sound of grunge music and modern rock.

Throughout the band’s nearly three decades career, five of their albums have won Grammy Awards for Best Rock Album, positioning the group among the most successful rock acts. Foo Fighters attracted the attention of many young listeners from different genres, and their counterparts appreciated them, including KISS’ Gene Simmons. The bassist even included one of the band’s songs among the ten songs that mean the most to him.

Which Foo Fighters Song Does Gene Simmons Like The Most?

When Foo Fighters got together in the mid-1990s, even the passionate fans of Dave Grohl couldn’t imagine the band’s future massive success and popularity. Grohl came forward as an energetic and optimistic frontman who ensured consistency and reliability in the group’s creative output. Thus, the band managed to build a loyal and constantly growing fan base worldwide.

During an appearance on SiriusXM in 2018, when KISS bassist Gene Simmons shared the ten songs he can’t live without, he also included a Foo Fighters song, ‘My Hero.’ During an interview with The Quietus in 2015, the bassist also listed Fighters’ second album, ‘The Colour and the Shape,’ featuring ‘My Hero’ among his favorite albums of all time, praising the band’s recognizable sound.

Foo Fighters’ song ‘My Hero’ arrived as the third single from their second album, ‘The Colour and the Shape,’ released on May 20, 1997. It peaked in the top ten US rock radio charts, alongside ‘Monkey Wrench’ and ‘Everlong.’ Grohl dedicated the song to the everyday heroes we see in our ordinary lives rather than big rock, sporting, or movie stars by citing them as the inspiration behind the hit track.
