Foo Fighters frontman Dave Grohl shared some words about the larger significance behind the track in a declaration that was very first released by the band yesterday (January 13).
Foo Fighters are continuing to mark their 25th anniversary, with the band announcing this week that they have actually teamed up with Vans to release a special pair of shoes to mark the turning point.

How dismal is it that youth could be robbed of that beauty and innocence by this dark feeling of fear? That s what Waiting On A War is about.
I was taking my daughter to school and it was around the time that the US and North Korea were ramping up stress with each other and she had seen it on the news, the frontman remembered.
As a kid growing up in the suburbs of Washington D.C., I was constantly scared of war, he composed. I had problems of rockets in the sky and soldiers in my backyard, most likely brought upon by the political stress of the early 1980 s and my proximity to the Nation s Capitol. My youth was invested under the dark cloud of a helpless future.
Waiting On A War has actually been launched today (January 14) as promised, and you can hear it completely below.
Grohl formerly informed NME how those problems of missiles in the sky and soldiers in my yard came complete circle after his daughter asked him in 2019 if the US was on the brink of nuclear war with North Korea.
