Stacked Actors (4:16)

Cover of There Is Nothing Left to Lose

From There Is Nothing Left to Lose and 23 other releases

Stacked Actors” is a Foo Fighters song which was released as a commercial single in Australia exclusively in 2000. However radio promos were released in other countries for airplay. It is taken from the band’s 1999 album There Is Nothing Left to Lose. Unlike many of the songs from that album, the song is very abrasive, sharp and distorted.

“Stacked Actors’ is the response of Dave Grohl to living in Hollywood for about a year and a half, and “my disdain and disgust of everything plastic and phony, which is the foundation of that city. And I just hated it. I had a lot of fun, but I had a lot of fun hating it.”

On the Howard Stern show, December 9, 1999, Courtney Love said the song was written about her.

The B-sides came from the 2 Meter Sessions. They were performed live in the Netherlands on November 22, 1999.

On September 3, 1999, the Foo Fighters played a secret gig at the Troubador in Los Angeles playing using the pseudo band name Stacked Actors. The gig was intended as a warm up for the bands newly recruited guitarist Chris Shiflett.
