Foo Fighters release Medium Rare (album art)

Just when you thought you heard everything new that [lastfm]Foo Fighters[/lastfm] have to offer–releasing a new album last Tuesday; playing a special two-hour Live on Letterman performance; and being the subjects of a new documentary, Back and Forth — they have more.

Foo Fighters released a special vinyl-only album titled Medium Rare on Record Store Day. It’s a compilation of cover songs the band has done, and it contains two that are previously unreleased.
