Album: There Is Nothing Left To Lose (1999)
  • This song is about making sacrifices to someone; giving aid to someone when he is down, even when it comes down to suicide: "Send me out on a tether, swing it 'round I'll spin your noose, you let it down I'll hang around with you." >>

  • The distorted vocal/guitar was created by Dave Grohl using a talkbox, which is an electronic device hooked up the guitar that was popularized by Peter Frampton on songs like "Show Me The Way" and "Do You Feel Like We Do."

  • Adam from Centralia, Wanot my favorite by them, feels as though he wrote just to write, feels as though hes spaced out while singing it
  • Layton from Paris, TxThere is a video on youtube of Foo Fighters lip-syncing this. This song is also playing out of Dave Grohl's car when he is driving to pick up his date on the video for Breakout.
  • Timmy from Mukilteo, Waa pretty good song.
    the begininning kinda has a pop feel to it
  • Tracy from Tulsa, OkThis song is about total dedication...even at your demise.
