The last album was really weak though.

Unbelievable, funny as hell. Anyone remember it?????

Dave plays about 10 different people; the pilot, a gay male steward, a female stewardess, some passengers, himself. The steward makes some coffee and there is a bag of dope in the coffee maker. Everyone on the plane gets wacked out and Dave, playing himself, has to learn to fly and land the plane. He is not wacked out because he was drinking booze, not coffee. In the end Tenacious D (Jack Black and buddy) who are baggage handlers, get arrested for the dope they were waiting for. It's hillarious!!!

There are other great Foo Fighter videos' too.
my god that video hestrcial!

Yeah, the Foos have some of the funniest videos ever. Didn't quite catch up with their post-In Your Honor stuff though. Is it any good?

You mean the videos or the music?

They still have weird videos and Long road to ruin is a little bit funny.

They've only done one album since in your honour and it was pretty forgettable.

I really dislike the Foo Fighters, and Dave Grohl for that matter. Knowing he was in Nirvana makes me feel a little less appreciative of their music, he's a worthless musician, in my opinion.

Worthless seems a bit strong. Why do you feel so strongly against Dave Grohl?
