With a new album on the way and a major tour in the near future, it’s safe to say that a lot of alt-rock music fans have been interested to see what the Foo Fighters have in store for them. Since the band’s start in the 90s, they’ve risen to rock mega-stardom and asserted their place as one of music’s most popular acts.
Well, today we have our first hint of what we can expect from the upcoming release Wasting Light. The band released the first single off the album, “Rope,” on their official website. Read on to see our thoughts and find out where you can listen to the song for yourself…

It’s not good to judge any song based on an initial reaction, but ours isn’t too enthusiastic. We wouldn’t go so far as to say this is a bad song, but it’s not nearly as heartfelt as “Everlong,” as energetic as “Breakout,” or as fun as “Big Me.” Even the band’s more recent tunes, generic as they may have been, were at least fairly catchy. “Rope,” aside from the production effects at the beginning, could easily be mistaken for a throwaway track from a local garage band trying to bring back grunge. It’s not what we expect from Dave Grohl.

Then again, that’s just how we felt on the first listen, and sometimes the best music is the music that grows on you. We’re certainly not going to write-off the new album yet.
