Thumbs up Re: Number Fucking One

Can't help but think this had a little bit to do with all the internet promotion they've been doing for this album with twitter and such.

Still, on top of the charts It's a good place to be.

My dad likes them too, he's 58 as well...he even saw them live 3 times back when I was too young to go on my own. And he enjoys the swearing since it's pretty much the only stuff he understands when they talk.

Oh btw, Foos are number 4in Italy! I know it's not number one, but still pretty good for a country that only listens to crappy whiny lovesongs.

36, father of 2 girls (that are 100% completely different from one another), I remember I was on the couch sleeping at my girlfriend's house when the news broke about Kurt's death. The news woke me up from my sleep. I remember thinking "shit...what are they going to do now?" I didn't know Dave Grohl's name at the time but I remember him being one bad ass drummer and that I hope he went on to do something great.

I saw some time later than he was playing with Tom Petty and while I was a TP fan, I was disappointed seeing him with TP. I wanted something better out of him. Since the inception of the Foo I've bought every single album as soon as they came out, have ripped countless bootlegs from the internet (including acoustic and live recordings) so I can listen to them in my ride, concerts, etc.

My now 15 year old daughter saw them with me when she was 12 and the best part of that entire show was seeing the smile on her face and seeing her try to headbang to All My Life. One of most priceless moments of my life.

My ex wife wasn't a fan. I knew then that someday she would be an ex.

Having a partner that isn't a fan of one of favorite band is not a good sign.

I know, right?
I am pretty sick of hearing her on the radio though. I find her quite boring, to be honest. But I must be a minority since the rest of the country is crazy about her!
