Foo Fighters Dave Grohl Credits Abba And The Bee Gees
From what I have heard so far of the new Foo Fighters album Wasting Light, I really think it might be one of the heaviest albums that they have done. I would have never put two and two together on how they came up with the hooks.
“I like loads of crazy-ass, dissonant, distorted rock ’n’ roll,” he told The Daily Star. “But I also love bands whose pop choruses get bigger and bigger. I love anthemic choruses, that overwhelming feeling of release that you can connect with.”
Grohl said ABBA and the Bee Gees records were prime examples of anthemic pop hooks.
“So whenever I thought I had a big enough chorus for a song, I would use that as the pre-chorus and then I would try and write something even bigger, like they did,” he said.
Wasting Light will be released on April 12 in the U.S. (April 11 in the U.K.).
