Foo Fighters announce a new greatest hits album

The Foo Fighters have been around for more than a quarter-century now and have enough hits to fill a two-hour concert set, so it’s probably time for yet another greatest hits album. And the fourth quarter is traditionally “greatest hits album season” because of Christmas.

The Essential Foo Fighters, a collection of major Foo hits, is set for a physical-only release (CD and double vinyl) on October 28. This will be a follow-up to a similar collection released in 2009. It’s also a nice way to sum up the Taylor Hawkins era of the band.

Here’s the tracklist.

02 Making a Fire
03 Times Like These
04 Rope
05 Monkey Wrench
06 My Hero
