"Best of You" is the first from the double disc album "In You Honor" and to say in the least, it finds the Foo Fighters attempting to grow up. The tune is more sober than past singles and it seems as the band may have not but too many more ideas for a hook in their songs. The hook in the song is just Grohl singing 'best of you' repeatedly throughout the song and makes for not an immediate connectedness to a potential listener. There are past singles Grohl & company have released which the hook is not so appearant, but there was other things which covered what lacked from a song such as high-spirited guitars. There are plenty of great songs throughout history that lacks a good lyrical hook but there is not much a music hook either and compared to the band's past, this single is not the best of the band.
