Wink Re: Foos Better than Nirvana?

Kurt versus Dave? mmmmm....well I'm Nirvana thru and thru but I'm also a Foo lover too. You are talking two completely different styles and I could never compare the two. There will never be another Nirvana and just because of the topic dicussion can tell you I have Bleach, Nevermind, Nirvana Unplugged and In your Honour currently sitting in the CD changer of my car. I love both the Foo's and Nirvana for very different reasons. It's an age thing too I guess. I'm 36 and have more knowledge on Nirvana than the Foo's. Having said that I will be seated in Block 1 at Earls Court on December 17th screaming out my undying love for Dave....so there's your answer!

Very true - I'm 26 and Nirvana were my first love so I'm going tp be biassed.

Very different music and incomparable really. The Foo have been all about upbeat and happy tunes and more recently standard pop rock. In fact their new album is so much bubblegum pop that I could puke. I loved their first few albums which were imo triptastic, but overall Nirvana holds up better in the long run. I will listen to them forever because there is so much more emotions invoked in their music.

Yeah, it's not one of my most 'constructive' posts to date but it's to the point

I find then difficult to compare, cause they're just so different to one another!
I'm a big fan of both, but I find myself listening to Foos more. I guess that's your answer right there!

I'm old Nirvana fan (22 years old and in my opinion Kurt and Dave both are great musicians and poets. As for me I love them both and I think every man of art is unique and interestig person. So are they.As a left-handed guitarist I can add that it's very difficult to be understood by others being left-handed(especially in Russia - the country where I live) and I think left handers and righthanders can't be compared in their way of playing their instruments.

It is totally an age thing. I'm 29 and like a few other people on here I grew up with Nirvana and it was an experience that I will never forget and could not possibly be repeated. The Foo's and Nirvana play totally different music so I don't think that you can compare the two. They are both amazing bands in their own right but both for very different reasons.

Well I am one of those gals who begs to differ...

Yes, Nirvana were in the right place at the right time...but they were also a band who were hated just as much as they were loved...

And as far as Kurt goes...I think he was the main source of brillance behind the band...just as many think Dave is for the Foos. I also think he took a lot of personal beatings in the media...something I think Dave has generally been able to avoid, unless you count all of the journalists asking about Kurt!

Foos are great, but...

I've been listening to Nirvana since I was 12 and I am now 23...and their music continues to excite and intrigue me. I like them just as much as I did back then! I love all of the albums; every single one is music I can listen to all the way through, over and over again! I don't have just one fav song cause there are too many to choose from!

And yea, I will say it, I think Kurt was some brand of genius. I mean no one is perfect, but I think his imperfections just made him more vulnerable and thus made him more attractive as a musician.

Sorry for such a long blurb...as u can tell I think Nirvana are better than the Foos!
Agreed.

Musically Foos are more superior than Nirvana. Dave is a better song writer, better guitar player, overall a better musician.

Age isnt an issue for me. I am 18 years old and i love nirvana, i remember head banging like they were doin in the video when i first heard smells like teen spirit. But i didnt follow the band as i was at a very young age. But i still know what influenece they had on people and im fine with that. It just foos are far superior musically than nirvana.

Even thou I agreed with most part of what you say and I love Nirvana and Foo fighters you can’t never compare those two band, I think there are very different in all of the aspects. Both of them are great musicians and I think this is very stupid (sorry if I offend any body ) thread.

I can not understand why someoneīs havenīt any intelligence, or whatever you call it... the two bands are clearly different, in styles, in the way to see the life, in music, etc. Both are the bests in their way.
