9. Foo Fighters, 'Bridge Burning'

Back in 1996, when "Big Me" first hit radio, it was hard to imagine that this band would be one of the biggest groups on the planet in 2012. When's the last time a drummer stepped out from behind the kit with this much success? Phil Collins? Foo Fighters cut their latest LP, Wasting Light, in Dave Grohl's garage with producer Butch Vig, and it's been a huge success. It hit shelves over a year ago and is still landing songs on the radio. The fifth single, "Bridge Burning," came out in March and is still doing very well on radio.
