Madonna is unveiling two new tracks on her best-of collection Celebration, and now there’s word Foo Fighters are doing the same. November 3rd’s Foo Fighters Greatest Hits will include “Wheels” and “Word Forward,” a pair of fresh tracks from Dave Grohl and Co. The band debuted “Wheels” in Washington, DC, over July Fourth weekend, when they performed at the USO’s bash honoring military heroes. A press release confirms “Word Forward” was recorded with Butch Vig at the band’s 606 Studios.
The band has yet to release a full track list for their first-ever best-of, but “The Pretender,” “All My Life,” “Learn To Fly,” “Best Of You,” “Times Like These,” “My Hero” and “Everlong” will make the cut.
In addition to his role as Foos frontman, Dave Grohl has settled back into his seat at the drum kit for new supergroup Them Crooked Vultures, which has been snaking its way across Europe performing a series of secret shows (read Rolling Stone’s report from London’s tiny Brixton Academy). Grohl was also honored with his very own alley in his Ohio hometown recently. As Rolling Stone reported yesterday, two tracks from his previous band, Nirvana, will appear on Guitar Hero 5.
