* [[AbsenteeActor Absentee Musician]]: William Goldsmith's drumming on ''The Colour and the Shape'' was largely replaced by Dave Grohl's behind his back to the point where his performances were only left on two proper album tracks, "Doll" and slow part of "Up in Arms" (Wikipedia states, that his drumming, albeit uncredited, also appears on verses of "My Poor Brain", as well as bonus tracks "The Colour and the Shape" and "Down in the Park"). Apparently, Goldsmith is still very bitter about it.

** ''Concrete and Gold''--both the album and the song (since it's the last track)--end with this ''twice''. The first is the very last chord of the song, taking the space-rock vibe from the chorus and finishing it like a guillotine with a multi-layered power chord and feedback. The second one comes a few seconds later. [[spoiler:FUCK YOU, DARRYL!]]
* LeadDrummer: Even if Dave primarily plays guitar on the band, he still fits, to the point that he was unhappy with William Goldsmith's percussion in ''The Colour and the Shape'' and replaced almost all of it with Dave's own playing. Taylor's role as TheLancer is a minor case.

** ''Concrete and Gold'' is a variant, where the only image is an emblem that resembles two Fs.



* TrueCompanions: Related to the above: the band took a break from recording, during which Dave played with Music/QueensOfTheStoneAge and even considered disbanding the Foo Fighters... and then noticed he was missing the band, which inspired him to write "Times Like These".

** "Run" has the band as old men playing in a retirement home...and causing a riot.

* DistinctDoubleAlbum: ''In Your Honor''. First disc with a more typical rock sound, and a second disc of more mellow acoustic music. The discs are even titled "Loud" and "Not So Loud".

** ''Concrete and Gold'' comes close to ''Sonic Highways'' with the number of cameos, including Music/JustinTimberlake, Shawn Stockman of Boyz II Men, Inara George, Alison Mosshart, and Dave Koz. [[Music/TheBeatles Paul McCartney]] even plays ''drums'' on "Sunday Rain".

** Again with ''Concrete and Gold'', which was produced by [[https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Greg_Kurstin Greg Kurstin]] who has worked with Music/Adele, Music/Sia, Music/Pink, among others. The album is still very much a Foo Fighters album, but the production is unlike the earlier, largely punk-influenced, stripped-down hard rock style with more complex compositions and dynamics.
