Best of You (5:01)

Cover of In Your Honor

From In Your Honor and 30 other releases

Times Like These”, and “The Pretender” have gone Gold.

“Best of You” holds the band’s highest chart peaks in America (#18), the UK (#4), and Australia (#5). Although it sold the most singles, two songs by the band have gotten more airplay, “The Pretender”, and “All My Life”. “Long Road to Ruin” has gotten the same amount of airplay.

The album version was one of 5 Grammy nominations the Foo Fighters received in 2005, for Best Rock Song, but it eventually lost to “City of Blinding Lights” by U2.

An acoustic live version of this song is available on both the 2006 CD and DVD [album]Skin and Bones[/album]. It is performed solo by vocalist/guitarist Dave Grohl.

“Best of You” gave Foo Fighters their highest ever entry on the Australian rock radio station Triple J’s Hottest 100 at #4.

Its music video was directed by Mark Pellington, best known for his work on the video for “Jeremy” by Pearl Jam. He was inspired by the death of his wife a few months prior to the shoot, and was drawn to the song’s notion of dealing with pain in life.

The video features the band playing on top of a tower. Along with the band’s scenes are some random clips that show pain, depression, or anger:
* Clips with children playing alone or with each other, one scene shows one girl hugging another.
* A car crash
* A lion pouncing on its prey, which is a vulture
* A snake attacks a rodent
* A zebra kicks another zebra behind itself
* A snarling wolf
