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

Added DiffLines:

** 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.

Added DiffLines:

** 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.

** 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.
* EpicRiff: The talk box intro of "Generator". "Everlong". "All My Life". "Stacked Actors". "Hey, Johnny Park!". "Rope" and the ever popular "Best Of You".

* 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.

Added DiffLines:

** The line "Learning to walk again" from "Walk" took on a whole new meaning after Dave broke his leg in 2015. While it could also be considered HarsherInHindsight, his pretty much nonchalant reaction to his ordeal makes it more hilarious than harsh.

** 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 the Afghan Whigs).
