"Hell" as written by David Eric Grohl, Taylor Hawkins, Christopher A. Shiflett and Nate Mendel....
This state I'm in
A place I've never been
I'm dying to meet you here

Come break this skin
I'll let you sink right in
And show you everything
See you in hell
See you in hell

We'll gather around the fire
And I will lead the choir
Sing farewell
See you in hell

Come break, my spell
Well down the wishing well
We'll find some time to kill

I'll be, right there
The buzz inside your head
The whole electric chair
See you in hell

We'll gather round the fire
And I don't need the choir
Sing farewell
See you in hell

    General CommentThis songs pretty cool in that it's just a straight-up, under 2 minute rock out in typical foo fashion. reminds me a little of the sounds from Colour and the Shape.

    That chorus is so typical hard rock.

    "SEE YOU IN HELLLLLLLL!
    SEE YOU IN HELLLLLLLL!"

    you get the idea. cool song.

    General CommentI just love how DOA runs straight into this song, the two meshing perfectly.

    Besides that, the lyrics just work, and the music just carries it through. Got to love it.

    General CommentWow... I'm surprised the comments are so few... even though I feel guilty about singing 'see you in hell' (Im a christian), this song is probably my second favorite on this album....

    General CommentAnyone else think the intro sounds like the intro to Led Zeppelin's 'The Song Remains The Same'? Only in that almost machine-gun strumming way, but yeah...

    Also: 'The Pretender''s intro sounds like Stairway's intro... hm. Well, we all know Dave loves Zeppelin, so it's all good.

    General CommentThis is a cool song. I like the lyrics, title, guitars, all together awesome song. What's the meaning, though. No one knows either?.....maybe it's aboot his view on the afterlife, that there isn't one (that's my view, I'm an atheist) and his laughing aboot it, thinking aboot the possibility of being there if one were to exist, yet not taking it seriously. That's more literal, though, maybe it's another relationship song, aboot two people who are distorted, confused, and have plenty of issues who understand that and go together like glue and paper. Could be....

    General CommentI think this song explains how misery loves company. He wants somebody else to break his skin so he can show them what kind of state he's in. He'll lead the descent because he's indifferent to HELLLLLL. He tells us to break his spell by giving us examples that don't make any sense. You can't drown a wishing well and you sure as hell can't kill time if you think about it but this way he lures us into his state of mind. Let's give the Foo Fighter's some company and hum along to the buzz of the Hell that was in his mind and sing it WELLLLLL. :)
