Please save the day.

Can you teach us to play?
Can you meet us half way?
Can you reach us… all the way?

"It comes from here." (point to your heart)
It comes from hear. (point to your mind)

Ole school Grohl
Taping in the garage
Ole school Grohl
No music mirage
Ole school Grohl

Please save the day.

Will you help us today?
Will you lead the way…
Show us how to plaaaaaay.
How to play a show…
The spirit in music you know.

No fool fighters

Accepting the award, Grohl said, "To me, this award means a lot because it shows the human element of music is what's important. Singing into a microphone and learning to play an instrument and learning to do your craft, that's the most important thing for people to do…It's not about being perfect, it's not about sounding absolutely correct, it's not about what goes on in a computer. It's about what goes on in here [your heart] and what goes on in here [your head]."

Later, Dave went on to say, "To me the biggest advantage of going analog is the restrictions that it implies, which gets you to perform in a way that you're actually being a human being. We thought about heart and performance. And I would rather people not tune their vocals, I would rather people not grid their drums."
