Foo Fighters Strip Down With Acoustic Set at DNC
Band plays 'My Hero' and 'Walk' on Obama's big night

The Foo Fighters stripped things down at the Democratic National Convention last night, going acoustic on "My Hero" and "Walk" not long before President Obama accepted his party's nomination for a second term. With the full band taking the unplugged plunge, both tracks sound full and haunting, with "My Hero" especially seething with raw intensity that contrasted with a delicate piano solo. Sure, there was an entire arena for the Foos to rock, but taking a bare approach added an extra emotional element to an already inspiring scene.
