“Times Like These” Almost Broke Up Foo Fighters

“Times Like These” may be a favorite for Foo Fighters fans, but the song actually almost broke the band up!

Talking with Apple Music, the band revealed that they were going through a rough patch while working on the song.

Guitarist Chris Shiflett revealed that the band had a huge argument the first time they were rehearsing the song and he thought the band was on the brink of a breakup.

“And it was actually there that we all got in a huge argument, and it was maybe the closest the band actually ever really did come to breaking up but then didn’t,” said Shiflett.
