My Hero


  • Streaming + Download



While having a great two hour, drunken conversation with my buddy Justin Pickett, I ordered the Foo Fighters Back And Forth documentary from Amazon per his suggestion. It turned out to be one of the greatest docs I've seen in a very, very long time. While watching it for the first time, I got to the part in the film where they show footage of them playing "My Hero" live for the first time. Dave Growl says something along the lines of "we just wrote this song 4 days ago", before they kick into it. It is truuuuuly awe inspiring. I watched about 13 seconds of the song before deciding that I needed to record an acoustic version of it immediately. Within a few hours I learned the song, recorded it, and was back on the couch watching them finish it in the film. Here is my cover of it. Enjoy.
