Dave Grohl is just a sexy singer. Can't say too much for the music - other than when I hear them... They make me want to go for a jog in the park. Just fun to listen to/tends to be on the boring side... Take it as you will.

Rye Coalition = fun fun fun music - LOVE them... Absolute enegry. And bring back that dirty-hot rock n roll quality that every band wishes they could have.

Generic alt rock. Had Dave Grohl not been in Nirvana, the Foo Fighters would not be where they are today.

CRAP.

This band doesn't do very much for me. meh.

But this one song...the only song...this Everlong.

Why is this song so great? Why does it work so well?

This, i cannot explain. I just heard it on the T.V.
Great pop song, no waffles, 'cept it was written by a reeeeeel boring band.

Why is "Everlong" so great? Because it's a great song, that's why. Songwriting will always triumph over the fashions of the day. Dave Grohl's songwriting is really quite good, despite the commercial crappiness of the production and dated grunge aesthetics.

Gonna have to go with not crap for that. Very high :WF:

Foo Fighters have never been awful, but they've never really been great. That being said, they have a handful of really awesome songs that most bands will never com close to touching: "Everlong" "Enough Space" "Learn To Fly" "Aurora" plus a b-side called "How I Miss You" that completely slays......still in most instances they are one of the more in-offensive generic rock bands.

NOT CRAP :WF: Handful

I liked The Colour And The Shape, but I was twelve years old when I got it. They've released some real drivel since, in fact, most of what they have released is drivel.

While I agree with most of the above sentiments that they are not very good yet far from despicable, I must say that, back in '95 when they first started out, they were a terrible dissapointment to me and a probably a lot of other 16-year old Nirvana kiddies.

Upon first hearing that Grohl was going to start something with Pat Smear, I remembier thinking, damn, it's probably going to be some good shit. It never occurred to me that a band led by Grohl could fail to rock so utterly.

Around that time I was also dissapointed by the fact that Novoselic's project, Sweet 75, failed to materialize into a real band.

Oh well. I was 16, and shortly thereafter started getting into way better shit.
