* SugarWiki/AwesomeMusic: [[AwesomeMusic/FooFighters All of it, really]].
* 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.]]
* 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.
* CoveredUp: The band's cover of Music/GerryRafferty's "Baker Street" early in their career is the closest they have come. The original is iconic for its saxophone solo. The band simply converted the melody into guitar. The cover isn't that well known to have completely replaced the original however.
* 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.
* EpicRiff: The talk box intro of "Generator". "Everlong". "All My Life". "Stacked Actors". "Hey, Johnny Park!". "Rope" and the ever popular "Best Of You".
* 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 the Afghan Whigs).
** Dave himself was on the other side of this trope with Nirvana. Nirvana was Cobain. Many people wouldn't even know Dave Grohl was part of it.
* GermansLoveDavidHasselhoff:
** Whilst they sell many records and play arenas in their native 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.
** This also applies to the song 'Wheels' according to Dave who has mentioned on several occasions that apparently Germany is the only country where they can play the song with the crowd singing along. While most American crowds tend to be bored and most Asian crowds not to be bothered with it.
** Their reputation in America has a tendency to be "That one band the drummer of {{Music/Nirvana}} made." with a certain group of people. This isn't to say that a lot of people know them on their own, but several people basically think of them this way.
* GrowingTheBeard: Many fans consider the 3rd album, ''There Is Nothing Left to Lose'', as the band's best.
* HilariousInHindsight: [[http://www.fooarchive.com/features/kaug05.htm "Who would you least lke to see naked?]] [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=k-Cvgm7Fp8w Any member of my band."]]
* MemeticBadass[=/=]MemeticSexGod: Dave again.
* MemeticMutation: IS SOMEONE GETTING THE BEST THE BEST THE BEST THE BEST [[OverlyLongGag THE BEST]]...
* SignatureSong: "Everlong"
* SongAssociation: "Everlong" is a great song, but some us who have played ''RockBand 2'' may be sick of it, and think about how much we have played it.
* 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.
