"Alone + Easy Target" is a radio only single released by Foo Fighters from their self-titled debut album. It was released only as a promotional single.[1][2]

Song history[edit]

Dave Grohl wrote and recorded the song in its original form in 1991. Grohl played the demo of the song for Nirvana band-mate Kurt Cobain in a break between touring for the album Nevermind. According to Grohl, "I'd told him I was recording and he said, 'Oh, I wanna hear it, bring it by.' He was sitting in the bath-tub with a walkman on, listening to the song, and when the tape ended, he took the headphones off and kissed me and said, 'Oh, finally, now I don't have to be the only songwriter in the band!' I said, 'No, no, no, I think we're doing just fine with your songs.'"[3] Nirvana would jam the song on soundchecks during the Europe 1991 tour.
