Fooey On the Foo Fighters

In 1998 I couldn’t throw a brick without hitting a Foo Fighter, Dave Grohl’s very succesful follow up to Nirvana. If they weren’t opening for the Rolling Stones they were playing interminable sets and bringing festivals to a full stop.
“This Is A Call” wasn’t terrible and the band are energetic enough but Dave Grohl writes terrible songs, “My Hero” is just awful and “The Pretender” is worse. His loud-fast, verse-chorus pales in comparisons to, forget Cobain, Stone temple Pilots. Grohl has precisely two gears: slow and fast and the fast is bad and the slow is worse. Foo Fighters has taken to releasing doubles just in case we miss the point. Next up is a greatest hits package: run for your lives…
In my opinion, the worst band in the world. I mean, nobody expects Creed to be in any good, we expect better off Grohl.
