    I saw them last year. I was not impressed at all. Generic rock with rehearsed jokes. Grohl is somewhat annoying live but he's still an awesome person.

    He seems like a nice dude. I think his music/stage personna is terrible/annoying.

    The entire show he was doing the generic 1980s high pitched rocker voice "whose happy to be at a fucking rock show!!!!!!"

    The Grohl prank calls are still some of the best content ever created.

    I kinda think that's just him being him.

    I've only seen them live once, but it looks to me like most of their shows from the past 10 years or so are very similar. I suppose it's hard to add variety when everyone wants to hear the same 10 songs every show though. I could do without Hawkins doing Queen covers.

    Fuck the hate. Saw them as a big Nirvana fan at 21 years old at a small club venue in Cincinnati called Bogart's. Went with my then girlfriend, now wife of 20 years. We've been fans since, but didn't see them again until they returned to Cincy for the first time in 17. It was worth the wait. Then again last year at Bourbon and Beyond in Louisville - after which we promised our teenage boys (15 and 13) that one day they'd see them. Today we bought the tickets to keep our promise. They're pumped and I can't fucking wait. 20200218_180050.jpg

    Outside of festivals, they play three hours and actually go pretty deep beyond the hits.

    Hawkins quotes Roger Taylor as one of his earliest and largest influences. Heaven forbid he pay homage during live shows occasionally.

    The last two albums have been pretty bad. Hopefully this new album goes back to some of their older stylings. There’s been some great unreleased stuff/covers on the 4-5 song EP’s they’ve been releasing.

    to be specific I wish he'd at least mix it up a bit. I feel like he's been doing the same exact thing for 10 years.

    He hates when I do that!!! Followed by Under Pressure. Surly as a big Roger Taylor fan, Queen has a few other songs he could do.

    I say this all as a big Foo Fighters fan

    I know a kid that got to get on stage with them and perform "Under Pressure" on drums.

    He never shut the fuck about it.

    As a whole those last 2 albums aren't great, but still have a couple good songs on them.

    what have they recently released? Just 01999925?

    I just revised the track listing and kind of feel like I should have ranked it above In Your Honor. Maybe even One by One.
