Despite the greatest hits being long overdue (foo fighters have had so many hit singles and seem to have been around forever) there's quite a few shockin omissions on this set. Alongside the previous reviewers flagged up 'walking after you' there's 'i'll stick around', 'for all the cows', 'stacked actors', 'DOA', 'have it all', 'let it die', 'The One' and 'no way back' that don't appear here. The dvd is also somewhat of a dissapointment for me also. It seems that the band have tried to fill the gaps left by the above omissions on the cd side. Contrary to what the below reviewer has said there are several music videos missing including- 'this is a call', 'breakout', 'generator', 'the one', 'no way back' 'have it all' and 'let it die'. Some of which had less then great videos or have been played to death on tv ('have it all' was just a cut and paste of the foos live shows of the time and i've seen 'breakout' countless times on tv) but it would have been nice for it to have been comprehensive. perhaps i missed the point and want a singles collection rather then a greatest hits record but this could easily have been stretched out to 2 disks with some key album tracks added for good measure; especially for such a maasive band. I'll be buying this for the 2 excellent new butch vig produced recordings ('wheels' and 'word forward') anyway but i expected a lot more from these guys. Still it's a good place to start for those unaquainted with the foos great music and gives a taste of the best this band has to offer. I'm already missing them and hope their 'long break' don't last all that long.
