What the hell does this thread have to do with Nirvana anyway?

And, isn't here a FF section here somewhere? And if not, shouldn't there be one? Come on, who's up for a dumb poll? :P

Foo Fighters are allllllllright. I never really got into them. They're NOT a "Grunge" band.

Yes, that would be a very dumb poll :P . Everyone agrees that they're not grunge... Oh wait, here's the poll (and the results):

Are FF grunge?

Yes 0%
No ======================================================================== 100%

Alright like this :) ?

Sorry Noor if I have to correct you, but we actually do have one vote pro-grunge, so please recalculate your results :geek: :mrgreen:

Funny I should see this thread today.

I was playing Everlong on acoustic yesterday afternoon and was trying to decide if FF would be considered grunge or not.

I decided probably not.

I've been listening to that first album a lot lately and I'd say it's much more grungey than anything else they've done.

Ummm.....late but to clarify....No the Foos are not Grunge; however, you can say they are post-grunge(the only good sounding) and alternative rock.

Either way they are good and Dave Grohl has done well for himself since Kurt's death.
