10. 'Stacked Actors'
The lead song to the Foo Fighters' third album, There Is Nothing Left to Lose, is a furious screed against the phonies of Hollywood. Grohl had been living there for about a year and a half at that point, and he had grown disgusted by the place. "I'm impressed, what a beautiful chest," he sings. "And we cry when they all die blonde." Courtney Love felt that the line "you're just another aging drag queen" was about her, but Grohl says that's not the case. "Everyone thinks that," he said. "I think specifics are boring – it makes for a good line in a song. To me, it takes a stab at the majority of people who live in Hollywood."
