This Is a Call" is the first major single released by Foo Fighters from their self-titled debut album. It was released in 1995. No video was made for the song. Dave Grohl said about the song: "The chorus says 'This is a call to all my past resignation'. It's just sort of like a little wave to all the people I ever played music with, people I've been friends with, all my relationships, my family. It's a hello, and in a way a thank you."
The song debuted at #12 on the Modern Rock Tracks chart. It quickly rose to a peak of number 2, held off the top by Alanis Morissette's huge hit "You Oughta Know." This was the band's highest peak until the band's "Learn to Fly" topped the chart in late 1999.
