"All My Life" is a song by the American hard rock band Foo Fighters, released as the first single from their fourth album, "One By One". The song won a Grammy for best hard rock performance, and spent ten straight weeks at #1 on the Modern Rock Tracks chart, coincidentally succeeding Nirvana and their unreleased final recording, "You Know You're Right". Dave Grohl notes that the band had wanted a heavier sounding song to appear as a single, stating that the band were "coming out with "Learn to Fly" and "Next Year" and other songs that had middle-of-the-road melodies." [Kerrang! Legends: Foo Fighters pg.114]

Regarding the song's content, Grohl notes that "the middle section is about eating pussy and the verses are kind of vague." [Kerrang! Legends: Foo Fighters pg.114]

In March 2005, "Q" magazine placed "All My Life" at number 94 in its list of the 100 Greatest Guitar Tracks.

Background

According to Dave Grohl, the song: "was originally an instrumental and it went through a few different versions. At first it was really dissonant and noisy. The middle section sounded like "Wipe Out" [by The Sufaris] . It was just nuts! We recorded the instrumental and I had no idea how I was gonna' sing it. Again, that was another one that our manager said, "That's the song!" And we said, "Really? You think that's the one people will like?" [Kerrang! Legends: Foo Fighters pg.114]
