I think they're just ok too. thought you might get a kick out of the more jazzy side to them. they took it a little further than the Minutemen, who had more funky stuff, than jazzy, you know. glad you checked them out.

btw, I listened to the Minutemen for the first time in ages and have to say they're just as good as ever. no-frills rock band that doesn't care if no one is hearing it. truly independent. without a care in the world.

^^me too!. it's the moody heartfelt power pop choruses.

Severian's post was totally backwards on how I feel about those two songs. though I'm warming to My Hero.

Oops. Sorry guys.

I know Everlong's the big favorite... I am utterly in the minority.

But I barely count as even a fair weather Foos fan. I love album #1, and on TCATS I pretty much just like... well, My Hero... even though I like it a LOT and whenever I hear it fills me with adrenaline and nostalgia. The drum intro kills me. It's just an amazing song, not in an objective way, but in a way that had a lot to do with being a Nirvana fan who was frustrated that the Foo's were an entirely different creature.

When I first heard that song, and to a lesser extent saw the video, I felt like the elephant in the room was finally being acknowledged. I was so disappointed by Monkeywrench and blah blah walking after you blah.. Fucking love songs and goofy videos! It was insulting! But My Hero had nothing silly about it, not even in the video (Everlong was a different story). It really felt like what I *wanted* the Foos to be.

But most people agree with y'all. I'm the outsider here. No insult or criticism intended.

I gotcha!! that double drum intro to My Hero is pretty rad. you know The Melvins wanted him for a second drummer for a long time. Dave can kick a kick drum in the ass, no doubt.

not a Foo Fighters fan at all, but a good song is a good song. it's like Korn's "freak on a leach". good pop/hard rock radio song.

Foo fighters were always a band my inner snob said i should hate, but i only just get happy when i hear them. Just a good solid band.

meh, the Foo's are shit!! same with every other famous 90's hard rock/rap rock/alternative band.

like they tried to rock so hard but it was too hard without any thought or emotion. like, it's aggressive but doesn't have any real aggression....just to sell to kids. just what the world wanted at the time for stupid white boys.

post Nirvana 90's in a nut shell. and you can include Matchbox 20 with those guys. all the same.

I still love their first album, even though I never play it. But yeah, they're ludicrously crappy. Everybody can play and sing pretty well, and even the lyrics are alright. But they really are just an atrocious band all things considered.

Dave Grohl is like rock royalty at this point. He hangs out with Springsteen and Paul McCartney and is involved in the R&R hall of fame, and blah blah... Odd company for a dude who cut his teeth in the DC hardcore scene.

beasts apparently do not process music/keep beats. except for cockatoos & the such.

i.e. language cadence as the origin of music.

"but what about rhythm" you say. rhythm is not cadence.

no need to get mystical. syl-la-bles have the beat.

is that a question
is that a question
that is a question?
that is a question

aphasia = amusia? (not necessarily-- not if aphasia involves syntax but the cadence / beat areas are intact).

good hypothesis. go test it. i'm retired now.

the next music revolution comes from the death of the record label. everything is likeable and nothing is old or new. fans experience live music like it should thru fandom. there will be no revolutionary new or old genres, just a constitution set in modem stone to like what you like you like without a provider. free service and music for every one because it will be controlled by the one and only...

the rich.... while selling you Merzbow. they own and control all of you right now, you just don't know it because you jack off to yr facebook and tumbler.

I have to disagree. I could listen music where are nazi lyrics. Itīs just I havenīt ever heard listenable music with nazi lyrics (there are some skinpunkbands in Finland). Also, one Finnish band Liimanarina has quite awful lyrics, but I have enjoyed their music.

At least they really try this. They really try to advertise me that new, boring, samesounding shit through spotify (I have wondered why they donīt ever advertise anything of my music taste, I just canīt believe itīs not possible). Havenīt got any influence to me yet, but maybe when I have listened those 20 years, my brains & eyes are empty and I just say "I put digster on" or whatever that will be those days.

THEORY: In the future (probably the near future), we'll use band names as sub-genres.

"I play my own songs."

"Oh, what sort of music do you write?"

"Mostly anti-folk and joy division."
