    Waiting On A War
    I've been waiting on a war since I was young
    Since I was a little boy with a toy gun
    Never really wanted to be number one
    Just wanted to love everyone
    Is there more to this than that?
    Is there more to this than that?
    Is there more to this than that?
    Is there more to this than
    Just waiting on a war?
    Everyday waiting for the sky to fall
    Big crash on a world that's so small
    Just a boy with nowhere left to go
    Fell in love with a voice on the radio
    Is there more to this than that?
    Is there more to this than that?
    Is there more to this than that?
    Is there more to this than
    Just waiting on a war?
    Just waiting on a war for this and that
    There's got to be more to this than that
    Just waiting on a war for this and that
    There's got to be more to this than that
    I've been waiting on a war since I was young
    Since I was a little boy with a toy gun
    Is there more to this than just waiting on a war?
    Just waiting on a war for this and that
    There's got to be more to this than that
    Just waiting on a war for this and that
    There's got to be more to this than that
    Just waiting on a war for this and that
    There's got to be more to this than that
    Just waiting on a war for this and that
    There's got to be more to this than that
    Because I need more
    Yeah, I need more
    Than just waiting on a war

      I have watched this More than 30 Times .....Because I can TOTALLY Relate to this .....Am I Alone?

    3. dodgers doon1130

      No disrespect but sounds like every other foo song. Just saying

    4. Judle MicStrudle

      I love the song and it's great but the editing of the camerawork on this video in my opinion is awful, I wanna see what's going on. Fast editing and shaky cam gives me a headache, and it ruins the song and video for me.

    5. Elaine J Lawrence

      You. Got. It

      1. Elaine J Lawrence

        Gray. Job. 🤔😍

    6. Orwell 1984

      Hi Mr. Dave Grohl, would it be possible if you, Krist, Pat, and Chad Channing would do a jam session, record it and put it on youtube as a one off thing? You on vocals and guitar, Krist on bass, Pat Smear on the 2nd guitar/backing vocals, and Chad on drums? You guys could perform songs from "Bleach and Incesticide". That would be so cool.. just the 4 of you in a garage somewhere, jamming, and recording it and putting it on youtube.

    15. Kathleen Lang

      I'm so crazy about this whole album!!

    16. Jason Vancoughnett

      1. beyz


    22. ɴᴀᴛʜᴀɴ

      Feels like an Echoes, Silence, Patience & Grace song, which happens to be one of the best FF albums ever. Love it.

    23. Anselmo Echeverria

      Foo Fighters es la sorprendente historia de cómo un batería se convirtió en una de las grandes estrellas del rock. Dave Grohl pasó de darle a las baquetas en Nirvana a cantar, tocar la guitarra y componer en una banda de rock con un directo demoledor, que lleva encima de los escenarios desde 1994. Por fin llega a nuestras manos su décimo álbum, "Medicine at Midnight", un disco de poco más de 35 minutos de duración y que ve la luz ahora después de varios retrasos a causa de la pandemia mundial provocada por la Covid-19. Es su álbum más pop, eficaz pero falto de pegada. Disco sin complicaciones, facilón, donde solo hay dos canciones: "Cloudspotter" y "Waiting of a War" que recuerdan mejores tiempos. Música independiente novedades.

    24. Stanley Tenia

      This is for the Children of the 70's and 80's we grew up waiting on the End of the WORLD when the would Sky Rain Nuclear Fire, then there was always the pending Race war where we would have chose sides then the Oil Wars then Terrorism and then and then and then smh always pending death yet Death is Always Just Around the Corner for All of US.

    25. Gladys Torres Yance

      2:20 best part!!!!

    26. Kyle Kaminski

      Thankfully they're for the military industrial complex singing for Biden.

    27. Mundo Incune

      This band has never disappointed me in 25 years. Damn, I love you guys.

    28. wayne john

      That guitar play and drums are mint

    29. Michael King

      Love it,we're all waiting on the war,we live in a TYRANNY DICTATOR ADMINISTRATION.

    30. ILC 1234

      Why would he say, since I was a little boy with a toy gun, when he's for gun control? I wonder if his bodyguards carry firearms?

    31. Daniele Giani

      Daniel Jaek

    36. Ryan Laws

      He really puts thoughts in to something beautiful, I really felt that passion. It's relatable to me and just contagious.

    37. ToshBox

      Was a grower for me, the build up is so great

    38. Thelma Segal

      Dave does it again.... safe hands - you know it has their vibe which people love to knock. This is a classic and will rock the ass out of the concert halls when we get back. The Covid war has impacted badly on us and FF has summed it up with this song. That last scream says it won't win, just waiting to shout my lungs out at a gig - come to the UK asap guys :)

    39. David Procopio

      Beautiful Song 👍

    65. Dave Bunting

      Brilliant song (and video), as a teenager in 80s England I remember living under the belief a nuclear war between the US & Soviet Union could happen at anytime.

    66. Glimjii

      This is my favorite song from their new album and favorite song so far this year. This is a head banging tune.

    67. Braden Games

      For anyone out there that listens to music of any kind or genre,The Foo fighters are a must for your playlist for your album collection whatever you do in life these guys are phenomenal!! Im pushing 52 years old and I never wanted to run so f****** fast in my life with the group in this video.... I've waited 52 years for my f****** war where is it!!! The music that Foo fighters puts out gives me such a drive it cuts me so emotionally just take my advice always have them on call. THEY ARE THE BEST F****** BAND EVER!!!

      When 3:50 kicks in my adrenaline gets pumping !!! Great song

    74. Leslie m

      You go, Dave

    75. Saxton Hale

      Grohl occupying a vital space left by Tom Petty (no less), where while enduring a shitty job, or just hanging on by a thread, his songs are a release that can make the whole day bearable -- like life is worth fighting for.

    76. shane davis

      Kurt would be happy, this song gives me goosebumps, a beautiful song by a beautiful man. Foo Fighters still rockin' it out!

    77. Doll.perasite

      I was listening to 95.3 and started screaming when this played

    78. foxyroxstar

    84. Justin Mohan

      This video is cheesy, but the song is good.

    85. ChickMagnet

      Dave has done it again hasn't he? At first listen I didn't really care for this one... But after a few listen, I can't get it out of my head. I can't wait for tours to resume and for Foo to come back to Quebec, Canada. Rock on Lads! \m/

    86. Dustin Baggenstoss

      Turn off your TV more often.....

    87. Victor Quero

      Oye... esta canción esta re buena... pero el álbum completo esta bueno!!! El mejor álbum desde Wasting Ligth para mi modesto gusto... los otros no han sido malos, pero Wasting Ligth dejo la vara muy alta, y este esta ahi, a la altura.

    88. holykuhmeinefresse

      The build up and the ending is just glorious. Does anyone have song suggestions for something similar to the ending of this? Something as driving and uplifting?

      1. Chazit

        let It Die is a similar sort of thing

    89. Dawn STRIDER

        Ok come over we're waiting on a war too😉

    99. Mr.Soprano

      This is a good song. The ending sounds like the end of Territorial Pissings.
