Early Foo Fighters? It's a stretch...but MAYBE. New Foo Fighters? No. Period.

I don't think foo fighters are grunge. Maybe grunge inspired, but no.

Yeah, you're right but I just wanted to know how it works cause it was my first day on this forum. It was also my first day on a forum.
Dearly beloved are you listening?
I can't remember a word that you were saying
Are we demented or am I disturbed?
The space that's in between insane and insecure
Oh, therapy, can you please fill the void?
Am I retarded or am I just overjoyed

I like Foo Fighters :oops: But they aren't grunge( I think). More post-grunge or something :? I'm not that good with labels.

I don't agree with the pop punk catagorie. I think more Alternative than anything.

how in the bloody world can you call foo fighters pop punk?? there isnt even the slightest similarity between foo fighters and bands like simple plan,blink 182, good charlotte, my chemical romance and all those bands...if Foo Fighters is pop punk i play in a death metal band!
