Miss the Misery

Album: Wasting Light (2011)

Songfacts®:

  • The Foo Fighters seventh album, Wasting Light, took its title from a line in this song. The disc found Dave Grohl re-uniting with Butch Vig 20 years down the line from Nevermind. The ex Nirvana drummer told Mojo magazine of the producer's contribution to the disc: "Anybody who's ever seen Nirvana play knows that Nevermind was the result of Butch Vig making us sound bigger and better. He's a master of simplification. He takes the most important parts of the song and uses only those. I wanted to make a Foo Fighters album of 11 songs, straight to the point and you can't get 'em out of your head once you've heard them."
