"Arlandria" is a song by American rock band Foo Fighters, released from their seventh studio album Wasting Light on September 18, 2011 as the third single in the United Kingdom.
The title is a reference to Arlandria, the Alexandria, Virginia, neighborhood where Dave Grohl lived. The lyrics include a reference to "Rain Rain Go Away," which Dave Grohl justified by saying "there's something about the singsong cadence of children's music that has its place in rock."
Arlandria is also referenced in the song "Headwires" off their 1999 album There is Nothing Left to Lose. At the end of that song, Grohl repeats the phrase "The sun is on Arlandria".
