Dave Grohl says that "Learn to Fly" is one of his least favorite songs from There Is Nothing Left to Lose, but the single brought the band to a whole new level of success. They had a lot of minor hits up to that point and were MTV favorites, but "Learn to Fly" was actually their first single to enter the Billboard Hot 100, peaking at number 19. This was partially due to their hysterical video for the track, featuring Tenacious D as airplane janitors. This was the peak of MTV's Total Request Live, and they played it constantly alongside Britney Spears and Backstreet Boys videos. It's the second-biggest hit of the band's career, topped only by "Best of You."
