Default Re: Foos Better than Nirvana?

The most salient point out of all of this is: why are people still asking this question in 2006, when the Foos have been going for eleven years? If it were the late 90s when the Foos were still a new band, the constant comparisons to Nirvana would be understandable. But the Foos are a fully established band now with several albums under their belt. It's bad enough that the critics still continually hark back to Dave's Nirvana phase, without the fans doing it too.

think about it lke this. if both bands were out at the same time (not possible i know but just go with it) then you wouldn't compare them.

they are very different bands. Its like comparing FF and Green Day, people will go on and on about how one is better than the other or 'green day suck', but in reality they're different bands with different styles and different sounds.

Some of the early foo stuff was possibly slighly Nirvana sounding but since Dave has grown up he's wrote completly different songs. I mean you could maybe imagine Nirvana playing Enough Space or Something but songs like My Hero and Best of you for example? No way.

At the end of the day they're very different bands and are/were both very good at what they do.

the only true way to judge a band is to watch them live and having had the pleasure of seeing both bands live i would choose nirvana every day of the week only if kurt was having a good day if not then it would be the foos kurt at his best with dave and krist is by the far the best band i have ever seen ever, who remembers reading?

You're kidding, right?


It's very hard to choose between two brilliant bands.. i guess it depends on which mood you're in.. sometimes I like the Foos more, and sometimes Nirvana..

They're both pretty different methinks. Not the easiest to compare really.

i definately agree on this one... first they're 2 totally different genres and why would anyone want to choose between the 2 of these bands? You can say you like or dislike, but not that one band is objectively better than the other... at least that's my opinion

LOL Re: Foos Better than Nirvana?

You can't compare the Foo Fighters with Nirvana, because they're two bands from two eras. It's like comparing Van Halen with Led Zeppelin.

Nirvana is definitely a classic rock band of the XXth century, and who cares In Utero is better than Bleach or so, they became famous with Nevermind.

Foo Fighters started named as Nirvana's legacy, because of Dave and Pat. But they found their way and they're doing something a lot different, and I think they succeeded.

Dave got better since Bleach. lol

LOL Re: Foos Better than Nirvana?

Well, this is a much discussed topic, in which I am getting involved in again.
Nirvana *were* a brillant band for their time, and the fact they arent here anymore they are unlikely to bring out anything new!. I loved their music then, and still love it today!
Foo Fighters are *here*.... no comparison there then!... They have "grown" in their music from the 1st to the 5th album and will continue to do so!

Foo's rawk!!

ermm It's hard for me.. But i think Kurt is a better songwriter than Dave, plus Nirvana play more catchy and melodic songs than the Foos..
But I'm going for Foo Fighters!. 1 on my list!

I really liked Nirvana and all my friends think Nirvana is alot better than the foos especially my mate jaz who wants to marry Cobain, a bit hard but hey!

Anyway I personally feel that although I love Nirvana I love the foos even more!
