While Foo Fighters may not have put on a New Year’s Eve livestream like so many other acts, the alt-rockers did provide a musical send off to 2020 with a new single, “No Son Of Mine”. The song, released last Thursday, comes as the second single from the new album “Medicine At Midnight” following “Shame Shame“. According to a handwritten statement from frontman Dave Grohl posted to social media, the band had originally intended to release Medicine At Midnight prior to mounting its 25th anniversary Van Tour. After that got postponed—along with every other tour—Foo Fighters decided to wait out the storm. And that’s what they did: wait. However, Grohl now says that “the wait is over.”

‘Medicine at Midnight’ will be released on February. 5th, nearly a year after frontman Dave Grohl announced that the Foo Fighters‘ 10th album was completed. Its nine songs include the lead single “Shame Shame,” which they premiered on ‘Saturday Night Live’ in early November. Guitarist Chris Shifflet said a lot of the songs are “groove-based,” adding that Grohl’s background as a drummer means “he’s always coming up with rhythmic twists and riffs based on rhythms that he hears in his head.”

As expected, “No Son Of Mine” is a rocker. Between an earworm Motörhead guitar riff and pulsating drums, Grohl’s lyrics come out to the forefront to lay out fatherly expectations of kin devoid of evildoing. Grohl said of the song, and the album, in his statement, 

Dear Everyone, It was almost exactly a year ago that we finished recording our “new” record Medicine At Midnight, with a massive world tour planned that would have taken us around the globe celebrating our 25th anniversary as a band. But, well…you know…Until we finally realized that our music is made to be heard, whether it’s in a festival field with 50,000 our of closest friends, or alone in your living room on a Saturday night with a stiff cocktail. So, the wait is over.

As we say goodbye (f*ck you) to 2020, and flip the calendar page to 2021, let’s ring in the new year with a new rocker, “No Son Of Mine”.  Pour a drink, turn it up, close your eyes and imagine that festival field blowing up to this. Because it f*cking will.

Happy New Year, Dave
