Band On The Run, the timeless Wings classic that you have enjoyed for many years has been given an amplified face lift from the future classic rockers, the Foo Fighters. This is where you sample both and come to the conclusion of which you prefer, the jangly, hand clapping original, or the space rock anthem update. There are many similarities between these two groups, many have been so bold to say that the Foo’s are Grohl’s Wings to Nirvana’s Beatles. How appropriate than, that Grohl should choose to cover this monument to power pop, and further this cosmic comparison. McCartney inserted his charismatic charm into this number, making it a highly revered and masterful track. Grohl has stayed true to its original sentiment, but inserted his rare breed of dignified aggressive stylings. So check it out and see which makes you want to get up and dance. Enjoy!
