Foo Fighters – ‘But Here We Are’ review: Grohl and the gang work through their grief

by Phil G 29 May 2023
Following the death of drummer Taylor Hawkins and the frontman's mother, their eleventh album is a suitably pensive toast to rock’s restorative powers Foo Fighters have been at their strongest tackling misery. 1997’s ‘Everlong’ was written at rock bottom, emerging from frontman Dave Grohl’s struggles both professionally and personally. On two of their most impactful tunes, 2011’s ‘These Days’ and 2002’s Times Like These’, they stare death in the face and fully acknowledge the weight of life. Even their recent Greg Kurstin-produced pop-leaning records have been flecked with uneasy doom; ‘Waiting On A War’, which features on most recent album ‘Medicine At Midnight’ (2020), documents a lifetime spent waiting for annihilation. The reason those powerful anthems of loss and heartbreak are able to unite stadiums full of strangers, though, is because of the relentless positivity Grohl and the gang have always channelled. From the moment Grohl formed the band in 1994 following the death of his Nirvana bandmate Kurt Cobain, the Foos have constantly told people that things can, and will, get better.
