Next Year (4:36)

Cover of There Is Nothing Left to Lose

From There Is Nothing Left to Lose and 12 other releases

Next Year” is a song released as the last single off the third Foo Fighters’ album There Is Nothing Left to Lose. It was released on two main discs in 2000. The song charted at #17 on the Modern Rock Tracks

The video, directed by Phil Harder, shows the band in a remake of the Apollo 11 moon mission and incorporates heavy use of NASA stock footage. They experience zero-gravity in the space capsule (where they conduct experiments and perform the song with instruments), land on the moon, plant a Foo Fighters flag, and return to Earth where they are welcomed back as heroes during a ticker-tape parade. Many moments and images of the Apollo era are re-enacted, such as the band meeting President Richard Nixon, bassist Nate Mendel golfing on the moon (a nod to Alan Shepard during Apollo 14), and depictions of Vietnam war protests. The video ends with a portrait of the band in the style of a traditional astronaut crew photo.

The opening of “Next Year” was used as the theme song for the NBC television series Ed (2000-2004).

The show’s creators, Rob Burnett and Jon Beckerman (formerly of the Late Show with David Letterman) used the song despite knowledge of production company Viacom’s insistence that they own the rights to the show’s theme song.
