Dave Grohl and the Foo Fighters leave it all on stage whenever they put on a show. The frontman is worth the price of admission for his intense vocals and guitar work alone, but you never know what other antics you might be treated to when you show up for a concert.
Grohl has been known to invite fans up on stage – whether it be his own daughter or the young son of Scott Ian of Anthrax – and there was that time Grohl chugged a beer and immediately fell off the stage. A Foo Fighters concert is always an adventure.
There are six adventures on the schedule so far for 2020 - all festival dates starting with Something in the Water in Virginia Beach in April. And there are certain songs you can pretty much bank on hearing at a Foo Fighters show. Here's a look at the ones they’ve played live the most.
10. BEST OF YOU - 589 TIMES
From 2005's In Your Honor, the song was surprisingly covered by Prince during the halftime show of Super Bowl XLI in 2007.
9. BIG ME - 604 TIMES
From their 1995 self-titled debut, the song featured a hilarious video that parodied Mentos commercials
8. BREAKOUT - 695 TIMES
From 1999's There Is Nothing Left to Lose, which featured the first appearance of drummer Taylor Hawkins.
7. ALL MY LIFE - 716 TIMES
From 2002's One by One, the track starts calmly enough, but as usual, it isn't long before Dave Grohl and the band erupt with unrestrained fury.
6. TIMES LIKE THESE - 739 TIMES
From 2002's One by One, Grohl once called it the best song he'd ever written to that point: "It's very emotive and passionate and universal."
5. LEARN TO FLY - 856 TIMES
From 1999's There is Nothing Left to Lose, Grohl said "it's about the search for some sort of inspiration, the search for signs of life that will make you feel alive."

The first track and first single from the first album by the Nirvana drummer turned Foo Fighters frontman.
3. MY HERO - 933 TIMES
From 1997's The Colour and the Shape, one of a trio of singles from their sophomore effort that made it clear the Foo Fighters were here to stay.
2. MONKEY WRENCH - 965 TIMES
From 1997's The Colour and the Shape, Grohl wrote the song about the deterioration of his marriage to photographer Jennifer Youngblood.
1. EVERLONG - 1,042 TIMES
From 1997's The Colour and the Shape, it's number one on the list because it's the perfect live song - constantly gaining momentum with a sing-along chorus.
