Cover of Echoes, Silence, Patience & Grace

From Echoes, Silence, Patience & Grace and 5 other releases

Let It Die” is the fourth single from the Foo Fighters’ sixth album, Echoes, Silence, Patience, & Grace.

==Chart Success==

The song has had good radioplay in Canada, and was placed on Radio and Records’ Canadian Rock Chart, placing it at #1. It has entered the Modern Rock Tracks chart in April 2008 and reached #1 for the week of August 2, 2008, which made “Let It Die” their seventh number one single on this chart and their 3rd straight #1 hit after “The Pretender” and “Long Road to Ruin”. It already charted #60 in Canadian Hot 100 and in Mainstream Rock Tracks where it peaks at #5. The single gave the Foo Fighters three songs in the Modern Rock Tracks’ Top 20 simultaneously, making them one of four acts to ever accomplish that feat (the others being R.E.M., U2, and Linkin Park). When “Let it Die” became the third song from the album to reach the top of the chart, it made Echoes, Silence, Patience & Grace the ninth album in history to achieve the feat.

It is the band’s most successful third single from an album, beating “For All the Cows,” “My Hero,” “Generator,” “Low,” and “Resolve” chart wise.

In July the song managed to chart in Bubbling Under Hot 100 Singles at #6 becoming the first third single for a record of Foo Fighters to achieve that.

==Music video==

A music video for the song was shot on May 18th in Los Angeles, directed by Martin Fougerol (U2, The White Stripes, Wolfmother). The video was due to premiere on MTV’s TRL in June but failed to appear, and the video still has yet to be released.

A heart of gold but it lost its pride
Beautiful veins and bloodshot eyes
I've seen your face in another light
Why'd you have to go and let it die?
