Can't Foo Anyone

If the Foo Fighters look like an indie-pop band and quack like an indie-pop band, then they must be an indie-pop band, right?

"If you listen, there are not a lot of harmonies and stuff on this record," Hawkins says. "It's pretty straight-forward, but the songs aren't, necessarily. I think the big goal on this record was just to pull as much out of a song without having to rock something out, you know what I'm saying?"

With There's Nothing Left to Lose, the members of the current edition of the Foo Fighters say the tensions that existed before are gone, and that the new lineup enjoys strong personal chemistry. What's more, Hawkins says he and Mendel have slowly begun to play larger roles in the band, even if Grohl remains very much the guiding force. "That's a lot of trust for Dave to give," Hawkins says. "It's his thing, and I totally understand that he's the leader. And I don't want to dirty the process or cloud the genius or whatever."

As front man Dave Grohl slowly looses the creative reins, the Foo Fighters begin to act more and more like a band.
