Dave Grohl made some comments about the song “Run” released on Foo Fighters ‘last studio album “Concrete and Gold” (2017) in an interview with Billboard.
Read what he said:
“When we went to record our last record, I remember thinking that the strangest thing we could do was what most bands do and go to a commercial studio. It’s exciting when you’re in a beehive of activities where everyone is getting inspired. That was the first time since the fucking 90’s. ”
Dennis Blair (RCA Recorder)
“Dave was sitting in my office explaining that the new album would be like Sgt. Pepper’s meets SLAYER. What? I could not understand it at the time … Only when you listen, you can understand, but that was also a challenge for the radio. They had not heard that aggression in a Foo Fighters song for a long time. ”
“After I played the song ‘Run’ for the first few times, I could not even walk straight after. There’s a cathar there that makes me scream with my brain … I’m a big fan of old school thrash metal, so I was really excited after 22 years of being a part of Foo Fighters and having composed a song that is probably the one heavier thing we’ve ever recorded. ”
Nate Mendel (bass)
“I knew that for a year and a half we would open the shows with the riff of this song”.
