Medium Rare is a covers album by Foo Fighters. The album was released on April 16, 2011 as a limited-edition vinyl for Record Store Day, an event that celebrates independent record stores. Apart from the new recordings of "Bad Reputation" and "This Will Be Our Year" and the live version of "Young Man Blues", all tracks have been previously released as B-sides or in other compilation albums.
A CD edition of the album was also given free to new subscribers of Q magazine.
Note: "Darling Nikki" does not appear on the Q Magazine CD and Humo release, but there was a CD version where it appears along with live tracks recorded in Australia. The songs that appear on this album are "Bridge Burning," "Rope," "Dear Rosemary," "White Limo," "Aurora" and "This Is A Call," all of which are live from Goat Island, Sydney, Australia. Although the official description says only 2 are previously unreleased, "Young Man Blues" was previously recorded but doesn't appear on any releases.
