Foos special for Record Store Day

ELEMENTS OF STYLUS: Foo Fighters are dead serious about Record Store Day. Dave Grohl and his mates have assembled a covers album they call Medium Rare in honor of the indie-retail celebration on April 16—on vinyl only, of course. Here’s the tracklisting, with the original artists in parens:

“Band on the Run” (Paul McCartney and Wings)
“I Feel Free” (Cream)
“Life of Illusion” (Joe Walsh)
“Young Man Blues” (Mose Allison)
“Bad Reputation” (Thin Lizzy)
“Darling Nikki” (Prince)
“Down in the Park” (Gary Numan)
“Baker Street” (Gerry Rafferty)
“Danny Says” (The Ramones)
“Have a Cigar” (Pink Floyd)
“Never Talking to You Again” (Husker Du)
“Gas Chamber” (Angry Samoans)
“This Will Be Our Year” (The Zombies)

Clever choices, huh? Considering the Foos’ tradition of dropping choice covers into their setlists, we’re assuming this stuff was recorded live. (3/16a)
