"I'll Stick Around" is the third single released by the Foo Fighters from their 1995 self titled debut album Foo Fighters. The song is rumored to have been written about Kurt Cobain's wife Courtney Love, with whom the surviving members of Nirvana were constantly battling over royalties and song rights; an indication of this is the exhaustive repetition of the phrase "I don't owe you anything" in the song's chorus. Some time after the album's release, Foo Fighters frontman Dave Grohl confirmed that was song was indeed written about Love in an exclusive interview with Mojo magazine. The video for this song was the first Foo Fighters music video and was directed by Jerry Casale, who was a member of and directed videos for Devo. The video shows the band performing the song in a room with a paper background while lights strobe and a giant spore floats around them. This is interspersed with footage of Dave Grohl eating chess pieces and brushing his teeth with what appears to be a butter knife (although there is no blood). The video was featured in an episode of Beavis and Butt-head. "Weird Al" Yankovic included I'll Stick Around in his polka medley "The Alternative Polka", from Bad Hair Day.


Foo Fighters are an American rock band formed by singer/guitarist/drummer Dave Grohl in 1995 in Seattle, USA. Grohl formed the group as a one-man project after the dissolution of his previous band Nirvana in 1994.

Goldsmith left during the recording of the group's second album The Colour and the Shape (1997) Show more ...

I'll Stick Around - Foo Fighters

I thought i knew
All it took to bother you
Evry word i said was true
And that you'll see

How could it be
I'm the only one who sees
Your rehearsed insanity Yeah

I still refused
All the methods you abused
It's alright if you're confused
Let me be

I've been around
All the pawns you've gagged and bound
They'll come back and knock you down
And I'll be free

I've taken all and i've endured
One day this all will fade im sure

I don't owe you anything (*4)

I had no hand
In your ever desperate plan
It returns and when it lands
Words are due

I should have known
We were better off alone
I looked in and I was shown
You were too

Ive taken all and I've endured
One day this all will fade i'm sure

I don't owe you anything (*8)

I'll stick around
I'll stick around
And learn from all that came from it
