    I haven't decided on that yet.

    It's way too late, or much too early Prestigious

    Disc 2 is so underrated. Friend Of A Friend is one of my favorite songs Dave has ever written.

    I've decided I'd do two separate brackets since both CDs are two very different albums.

    I literally just discovered while building the brackets that Skin and Bones has a studio version.

    Is it the one on Five Songs and a Cover?

    Yep! Its a b-side from the CD version DOA. I actually have the 7 inch version of the single which has "Razor" instead on the b-side.

    Yeah it is, and like @t_papaccio said above, it was also a b-side to the DOA single.

    In other news, there will be 13 brackets for this so it will be a long one.

    1) Self-Titled
    2) The Colour and the Shape
    3) There Is Nothing Left to Lose
    4) One By One
    5) In Your Honor (Disc 1)
    6) In Your Honor (Disc 2)
    7) Echoes, Silence, Patience & Grace
    8) Wasting Light
    9) Sonic Highways
    10) Saint Cecilia EP
    11) Concrete and Gold
    12) B-Sides and other stuff
    13) Finals

    I have flirted with the idea of doing a bracket for Medium Rare and other covers, but we're looking for the best Foo Fighters song, not the best song performed by the Foo Fighters. I will still include Marigold in the b-sides because it was originally a Dave Grohl song before being covered by Nirvana and Foo Fighters. I mean, Foo Fighters were basically only Grohl at first, so it ain't really a cover.

    So many great deep cuts. Gimme Stitches, Aurora, Live-In Skin, Headwires. Can’t get enough of those. Plus Stacked Actors if that counts.

    "Numbness engulfs truth, let bygones be bygones"

    There isn't a single weak song on TINLTL.

    It's not Monday yet, but whatever, I'm starting this now!


    For those who are new to the concept, these are randomly generated brackets (no seeding!) where we go from album to album and put the songs from an album against each other. We vote on each matchups until we have a winner for each albums. Those songs will then face off in a Champions bracket to decide the best overall Foo Fighters song! Same rules as the other brackets:


    Rules:

    1. Voting will take place over 10-24 hour period, depending on how close the matches are (if there's a wide margin too far to beat, the round may be run ruled to not waste time).

    2. You must vote on every match in a round. If you don't, your votes don't count. Just reply to this thread with your choices. I will not vote unless there is a tie needed to be broken.

    3. Feel free to discuss why you chose one song over the other and why you like that song. It's what keeps these fun!

    4. I avoid byes into rounds if I can, but sometimes it's necessary. These are randomly generated; I do not pick them.

    5. Once your votes are counted, there are no vote changes. Choose wisely before posting!

    6. The King John Rule: Only participate if you've heard these songs. You are welcome to look them up and listen before hand, but if there's evidence you haven't heard them before or you're just voting to help/hurt a song your votes will not count.


    And the most important rule of them all : Have fun and stay respectful of each other.
