  • Dave Grohl said to Q magazine that he thinks this meditation on heartbreak and loss, "might be the best song I've ever written." Rolling Stone liked it too, naming it their fourth best single of 2011.
  • The Wayne Isham directed video was shot during the Foo Fighters' Australian and New Zealand tour.
  • In 2015, Grohl told Entertainment Weekly that this is one of the most memorable songs he's ever written. "Every night I sing it, I still get choked up," he said.
