Funny enough, it is still one of Dave's regrets. "Why the fuck did I name the band Foo Fighters?!" :lol:

Actually, you can. Taste in music and aesthetics says a lot about a person. Besides, you wouldn't want to spend most of your time with people whose favourite playlists you absolutely hate, right? How about standing right next to someone who's reading some poems that sound downright awful to you? Or going to a museum full of paintings and sculpturees that don't appeal to your senses at all? If someone has a soft spot for something that doesn't even slightly tickle your sensibility, then you know that fellow is most likely going to bore you to tears!

From my perspective, that's an overstament.

Well, I certainly don't want to picture you and Ferg boning to Wasting Light, so I think I'll drop it here :lol: I wasn't being dead serious anyway, I respect your points and all that sheez.

We don't. We bone to "That Smell" by Lynyrd Skynyrd

I remember growing up that Bob and Tom (of the Bob and Tom show) had a contest and voted that the worst song for a stripper to do her routine to. I don't remember the runner ups

I don't know Bob and Tom, but they probably said that because no Lynyrd Skynyrd song sounds like a porn soundtrack from the seventies...



... but my statement still stands. I always thought the song was about people sweating (that smell), but then I read the lyrics and was like, oh right, whiskey and coke, just how dumb can I be...

I think if you look up Foo Fighter origins or something like that it'll pop up. He's said it numerous times.
