See you, Overdrive (Use to hate it). Otherwise not a single song I dislike.

Monkey Wrench

Never liked it but I started listening to it more and more and the way they play it live always makes me like it more.

Interesting. TINLTL was the first cd I got, so Stacked Actors was the first track I heard, so the first track that got me goin YEEEAAAAAAAHHHHHHHHHHH!!!!!!!!!!!

Then of course came Breakout ... no wonder I got hooked so quickly

I'm still a little bit n'eeah with See You and The Last Song - sometimes I skip them, sometimes I don't

The first Foo CD I bought was actually the debut one - I loved This is a Call in the 90's and bought it for that...not actually realising it was the "guy from Nirvana"!!! I probably would not have gone there because I never liked them....ok you can all slay me now...

Hey, you're allowed to not like Nirvana!! I'm sure Dave at least wouldn't give a shit - you love him & the Foos now right?! And that's all that matters here eh

To be honest I thought Nirvana were ok at the time, but I couldn't really understand what all the fuss was about and certainly never went out and bought their albums, still haven't to date, though I can appreciate that they had a huge influence on the music world. These days I just pay particular attention to the drumming when Nirvana comes on the radio, and picture that lovely geeky boy whose personality and quirky sense of humour I now know something about, smashing the hell out of his drums ... and then wait patiently for the next Foo track - today I think I only heard End Over End

not everyone has to like Nirvana! We all have our own tastes
I do love nirvana but it really annoys me when people say the foos are only popular coz dave was in Nirvana. I started liking the foo's and nirvana at the same time, i didnt even realize that dave was in both! Until i read into it.

OMG! You too? Yaaaaay!

I didn't play Stacked Actors as I always skipped it. I think it was because I was 12 and my mum would have killed me if she had heard Dave singing
"Line up the Bastards, All I want is the truth..." (which has turned into quite a fav line of mine)
Now I sing along with it like an angry little bitch!

God there was one I took a while to like...But I can't remeber. Agh, I'll remeber it later.

Foo is goooood anger management.

Foo serves as my least violent anger management. Which I do need sometimes.

I guess the DOA (demo) took me a while, I still prefer the IYH one.

Pm me, if you wanna talk, you three. Thnx.
