Recently, IÂ’ve been having the same debate with several individuals and none of us can agree. IÂ’ve asked my co-workers, boyfriend, father, brother Â– basically anyone who I consider Â“knows good music.Â” Since we havenÂ’t been able to come up with an agreeable answer, and everyone certainly has their own opinions, I thought IÂ’d open up the discussion at the Gather Table.
Who is better Â– Nirvana or Foo Fighters?
Undoubtedly Foo Fighters got their influence from Nirvana. ThatÂ’s undisputable but have they surpassed their well-known and terribly missed predecessors? You could debate that if Kurt Cobain was still alive today we wouldnÂ’t be able to have this discussion. But even if that were the case, IÂ’d still be in the Dave Grohl corner. He and his band have more range than Nirvana ever had. TheyÂ’re more talented, have more variety and just a rock solid (pardon the pun) band.

So let me ask you Â– who do you think is the better rock band? Oh and does anyone know when the Foo Fighters will be touring again?
