Foo Fighters Release New Music Video 'Something From Nothing'

    Are we going through a Foo Fighters renaissance right now (does a band like the Foo Fighters even qualify for a "renaissance")? They've got a documentary series on HBO, Sonic Highways, that's as much a vehicle for the band as it is an exploration of America's musical roots; their eighth album, also entitled Sonic Highways, is set to hit stores on November 10th, and the record's first single, "Something From Nothing," has been generating a bit of critical buzz. Now, it's got a music video to go with it, one that closed out the first episode of Sonic Highways.

    And what a goofy video it is. Dave Grohl starts off by crooning, "Give me the flammable life/I'm cold as a match, ready to strike," while the same lyrics are scrawled across the screen in sketchy chalk by some invisible hand; the rest of the band is hidden in the dark, playing low. Then the lights begin to pick up, as does the music and before you know it everything is shaking while the camera zooms in and out, the lights flicker wildly, everyone starts wheedling-wooing on their guitars and Dave Grohl belts out a macho cry of, "Fuck it all/I came from nothing!" It's a little self-serious and self-congratulatory -- come on, Grohl: it's not like you've got anything to prove to most of the musical world -- but then I guess that's always kind of been the Foo Fighters schtick.

    Check out the aggressive new video below, then watch their tear inducing appearance on David Letterman from last week.
