Songfacts®:

  • The title, FFL, stands for "Fat F--king Lie."
  • During the song, Dave Grohl screams "Get on your bikes and ride!" This is reference to one of his favorite bands, Queen. In the Queen song "Fat Bottomed Girls," Freddie Mercury yells out the same line, which is actually a reference back to Queen's "Bicycle Race."
  • The musical style of this song is not typical of the Foo Fighters, and is more along the lines of Dave Grohl's metal roots. >>
