    Posted By: ThankassRocco, how does your band sound? More like FF or more like AC/DC?


    The Who.


    Let’s here it then

    For all the FF lovers here:

    Watched that yesterday, it was pretty cool! They really seem like a bunch of cool guys

    Good song from one pretty good album. They seem to be genuinely good guys who likes rock (after all it's christmas soon)

    Do I put this one in the Foo Fighters hate thread or the Rival Sons like thread...?

    I like and respect Dave a great deal but FF’s music is as insipid and lifeless as overcooked pasta. Still they’re a rock band who play stadiums in a pop/rap era, and, as with Coldplay, that has to be welcomed and applauded.

    Rivals Sons is another band I consider highly derivative. I prefer FF if those two bands are compared, at least FF have their own sound.
    Rival Sons only sound good when they've ripped someone else off.

    Saw the Foos in 2003 open for Cheap Trick. High energy show. Great time. 'Nuff said.

    The FF opened for Cheap Trick in 2003? How did that happen?

    The Foos went on before Cheap Trick.

    I gathered that, what I’m trying to understand is why the FF were supporting Cheap Trick in 2003? FF were already huge and despite being a million times better than them Cheap Trick have been nothing more than a Theater/Odeon level band ever

    Where was this gig and what was the story?

    It was in Sarnia, Ontario at an event called Bayfest. I think both bands were doing some midwest dates together. They took turns headlining, and as luck would have it, the Sarnia show had CT headlining and FF opening.

    Bayfest was one of the premium rock festivals in Canada for it's time. I've also seen KISS, Aerosmith, Alice Cooper and Iron Maiden shows at this festival over the years.

    Wobbly pops and some herb made Cheap Foos a total rock-out that night.

    I'm currently listening to "The Colour & the Shape" on vinyl, mastered by Bob Ludwig. It sounds FUCKING AMAZING. Brilliant album, all killer, and sonically PERFECT.

    Hey Devil, what's your set up (turntable/cartridge/phono pre amp)? Sorry, but I'm a nerd when it comes to those things.

    They should have called the album: "The Colour & the Beige".

    What's the "shape" then? ... A square?

    ... a beige square. XD

    I'm not a FF hater, but holy fuck is this ever LAME. And yes, I listened to it all the way to the end (a couple of times).



    I'm sure it's destined to be yet another #1 on US Rock radio. Shame Shame has been #1 now for 5 consecutive weeks.

    When will they hire a proper singer? He sounds uninspired and weak.

    I have wondered the same thing for years about Airbourne.

    I like the first minute, and the last one.

    Unfortunately, there's another 2:33 in the middle.

    Dave Grohl just invented Dad Disco Rock. Is there nothing he can't do?

    Obviously, a fan made video. The footage is originally from which FF video?

    I like Long Road To Ruin, it's easily one of their best songs. It has the sound I think they're famous for, which they haven't really been doing right for a long time.

    I don't find Poo Diapers too offensive, just not very stimulating.

    Dave and Taylor are headbangers at heart, which is fine by me. They're also funny fuckers, too.

    I can happily gove quite a few of their albums a miss but I've always thought The Colour & The Shape is one of the finest rock records of our times.

    They should have named their new album Pastel Colors.

    I'm late to this thread so I'll keep it brief.

    FF are fucking boring. Dave is cool though.
