I thought I read the SDRE singer said once that the only reason Medel didn't leave the Foos to do more SDRE is because Grohl paid him a ton of money to stay.

The Foo Fighters sucked from the start, yet somehow get worse every year. It's really quite incredible.

I watched the video for this song on the FF Facebook page. The responses were overwhelmingly positive. What the hell is wrong with people?

Foo's always remind me of CCR. They both have tons of songs everyone knows, but no one you know ever says "that's my favorite band" and, some of your friends will give you shit for even liking them.

Seriously. And while I may not hold Kurt Cobain's opinion on things in especially high regard, it's worth mentioning that he would have almost certainly hated the Foo Fighters.

Its been a while since something from dave really clicked on me. This is another generic rock song from them.
I hated the video more than the song though.

I feel like they've hit the same plateau that Pearl Jam has hit. Approaching (or in) middle age, have had a ton of success and for the most part stick to the formula that made them successful. I don't feel either band "sucks," and I still enjoy seeing both of them in concert immensely, but it's just hard to get excited about the newer stuff for more than a few listens. But you know what? That's OK. It's their band and their creative outlet so more power to them if that's what scratches that itch. As someone pointed out, plenty of their fans think it's great, and while people who were along for the ride from the start may drop off over time I'm sure they pick up plenty of newer, younger fans along the way.

Is it lame that I still buy into the whole "art isn't a commodity" mindset of my younger years?

in some way, i feel they are on a higher level than PJ, simply bc I feel like they are a much more successful band. Feels like PJ is trying to hit that plateau that the Foo Fighters are on, but i don't know if they ever will.

Yeah, and I feel like Foo Fighters can hang as a stadium-level band a lot more comfortably than Pearl Jam, as they have plenty of songs that are naturally loud, simple and fun. Pearl Jam try to crack into that same vibe but their strengths as a band trend towards being weightier and broodier, so they have to rely on uninspiring, utilitarian new songs and hoary classic rock covers to fill in the gaps. Most of Pearl Jam's best loud songs are too angry or gloomy, and their best lighter moments too delicate or too weird, to pull off the "good time party band" thing as effortlessly as Foo Fighters.

PJ peaked much higher, popularity-wise, but the Foos have been much more consistently popular

You could also say Dave puts a lot more in to the Foos than Ed does PJ at this point. Regardless of the quality of work

On the flipside, a live Foos track is virtually identical to the studio cut. Not true with PJ.

Don't they inject a bunch of jam sections and stuff? I remember seeing a live version of "My Hero" that ended with a jam section
