"Next Year" is a song released as the last single off the third Foo Fighters' album There Is Nothing Left to Lose. It was released on two main discs in 2000. The song charted at #17 on the Modern Rock Tracks MUSIC VIDEO: The video, directed by Phil Harder, shows the band in a remake of the Apollo 11 moon mission and incorporates heavy use of NASA stock footage. They experience zero-gravity in the space capsule (where they conduct experiments and perform the song with instruments), land on the moon, plant a Foo Fighters flag, and return to Earth where they are welcomed back as heroes during a ticker-tape parade. Many moments and images of the Apollo era are re-enacted, such as the band meeting President Richard Nixon, bassist Nate Mendel golfing on the moon (a nod to Alan Shepard during Apollo 14), and depictions of Vietnam war protests. The video ends with a portrait of the band in the style of a traditional astronaut crew photo. MEDIA: The opening of "Next Year" was used as the theme song for the NBC television series Ed (2000-2004). The show's creators, Rob Burnett and Jon Beckerman (formerly of the Late Show with David Letterman) used the song despite knowledge of production company Viacom's insistence that they own the rights to the show's theme song. "Next Year" was thus ultimately replaced by Clem Snide's "Moment in the Sun" during the second season. As a result of outcries from Burnett and Beckerman, however, Viacom relented and "Next Year" returned as the theme song in the third and fourth seasons. The show was also a production of Letterman's Worldwide Pants Incorporated with Letterman serving as an executive producer. Burnett, Beckerman, and Letterman in particular are all known to be avid Foo Fighters fans. In one episode of the show, a character is seen hanging a poster of the band in her office. The band performed the song on the Late Show in October of 2000, with regular guitarist Dave Grohl on drums/vocals and regular drummer Taylor Hawkins on mellotron. The two switch instruments for the end of the song.


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. Prior to the release of Foo Fighters in 1995, Grohl drafted Nate Mendel (bass), William Goldsmith (drums) (both of Sunny Day Real Estate and The Fire Theft), and Pat Smear (guitar) (of The Germs) to complete the group. Goldsmith left during the recording of the group's second album The Colour and the Shape (1997) Show more ...

Next Year - Foo Fighters

I'm in the sky tonight
There I can keep by your side
Watching the wide world riot and hiding out
I'll be coming home next year
Into the sun we climb
Climbing our wings will burn white
Everyone strapped in tight
We'll ride it out
I'll be coming home next year
Come on get on get on
Take it till life runs out
No one can find us now
Living with our heads underground
Into the night we shine
Lighting the way we glide by
Catch me if I get too high
If I come down
I'll be coming home next year
I'm in the sky tonight
There I can keep by your side
Watching the whole world wind around and round
I'll be coming home next year
Come on get on get on
Take it till life runs out
No one can find us now
Living with our heads underground
I'll be coming home next year
I'll be coming home next year
Everything's alright up here
If I come down
I'll be coming home next year
Say good-bye now
Say good-bye now
Say good-bye now
Say good-bye now
I'll be coming home next year
I'll be coming home next year
Everything's alright up here
If I come down
I'll be coming home next year
I'll be coming home next year
I'll be coming home next year
I'll be coming home next year
I'll be coming home next year
I'll be coming home next year
I'll be coming home next year
I'll be coming home next year
I'll be coming home next year
I'll be coming home next year
