* BrokenBase: After the band refused to let their songs be featured on ''Series/{{Glee}}'', their fandom experienced mild turmoil over whether or not it was a good thing. Not that it particularly bothered Taylor Hawkins. His response to ''Glee'' in general was [[CrowningMomentOfFunny "Fuck that shit."]]

* SignatureSong: "My Hero". There's a reason it's used in a hundred movies, TV shows and commercials. "Everlong","Learn to Fly", "Best of You", and "The Pretender" come close.

** And "Wheels" is frequently compared to [[Music/TomPetty "Learning to Fly."]] Not in part because [[Music/DaveGrohl Dave Grohl]] was briefly the drummer for Tom Petty's band.
* WinBackTheCrowd: ''Wasting Light'' finished the winning back that ''Echoes'' started after the relatively poor ''One by One'' and ''In Your Honor'' releases had lost some of the fans.

* BreakupBreakout: After all this time, it's easy to forget that Dave was once a member of [[Music/{{Nirvana}} one of the most important bands in history.]]
** It should be noted, however, that the Nirvana B Side "Marigold" was a Grohl composition that featured him on vocals, Grohl had already written and demoed most of the first album songs in 1992, and he had also released a self-released cassette album called "Pocketwatch" by Late!. However, these would have been of minimal interest beyond the most obsessive member, but if Nirvana had stayed, it's possible Grohl might have broken out on his own anyway, given his various abilities.



* EarWorm
** Deliberately invoked by "Exhausted", the last track of the debut album. Dave ended the song with a slow fadeout over a repetitive riff intending for the riff to keep going in the listener's head.

* FaceOfTheBand:
** Dave Grohl. In fact, the first album was [[IAmTheBand made completely by him]], with the help of a producer and only the guitar part in "X-Static" played by another musician (Greg Dulli of Music/TheAfghanWhigs).

* GermansLoveDavidHasselhoff:
** Their native US has Nirvana's shadow hanging over the band much thicker than elsewhere in the world. Whilst they sell many records and play arenas in the US, their popularity there is nothing compared to that in the UK, where in recent years they have sold out massive outdoor shows in minutes, months in advance. By Dave's own admission, the UK treats them like they are "the biggest band in the world", and while he can walk around cities like Los Angeles largely unrecognized, he gets mobbed on the streets in the UK.

** They also have a huge following in Italy, so much so that ''one thousand'' musicians (calling themselves the Rockin' 1000) [[https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=JozAmXo2bDE got together in a group to play "Learn to Fly"]], all in order to invite the Foo Fighters to hold a concert there. The Foo Fighters did go and perform there along with several of the participants after seeing the result.
