Default Foo Fighters to be inducted into Rock and Roll Hall of Fame before SP??

Not hard to believe since Dave is such an industry brown noser and glad hander, but a total joke for Foo Fighters to make it before SP. Thoughts? Did Billy burn too many bridges? Has he not played the game? Has he tarnished his legacy? Your best BcAnon theories pls.

It totally makes sense, the two bands are no longer in the same league.

WPC has sort of retreated in the upper Chicago suburbs with a circle of non famous characters, while Dave Grohl and the Foos are rock royalty. They go out with Sir Paul McCartney for fuck's sake!

Let’s see, the Foos have been the kings of radio rock for 20+ years, sell out arenas, headline SNL, sell records, have #1 singles, are seen as one of the last “rock” bands and Dave Grohl seems to be universally loved by everyone.

Billy’s band was relevant for 4 years, released two classic albums, a bunch of mediocre music, a bunch of garbage reunion albums, acts like an immature twat in public, can’t sell out tiny venues anymore and albums don’t even chart any longer. They’re like the REO Speedwagon of the 90s. They should really do more 90s Nostalgia concert tours with bands like Smash Mouth, because that’s all they are.

Fuck Billy Corgan.

the rock and roll HOF is an irrelevant self-congratulatory farce anyway, just like the Grammys and the Oscars

even if it wasn't, Billy would still deserve to get snubbed

While its obvious that SP is a much better band, apparently Billy has ticked a lot of people off. While I like the first few ff records, their meteoric rise around 2006-2008 and beyond has never really made sense to me. The post grunge pop thing they had going on in the early days was a breath of fresh air when a lot of the iconic 90s bands had met bad ends or flamed out on their own seriousness, so I definitely understand why people liked them during that period. After that, I get a little puzzled.

Yeah, Foo Fighters can fill stadiums anywhere in the world. They're in the same category as Queen, AC/DC, Metallica, U2, etc.

FF have made the same record each time for the last 20 years, much like Pearl Jam.

What if SP had done that? 20 years of MCIS or SD soundalikes.

Interesting take there ninff, because the FF were also relevant for four years and released two classic albums, released a bunch of crap ever since, and are the REO Speedwagon of the 2000’s to present. It must be Dave’s Nirvana clout.

Correction.... crap that sells.

Foo Fighters dropped off a cliff after the mid-00's and bizarrely seemed to get more popular releasing bland singles throughout the 2010's.

FF are still relevant because they could sell out an international arena tour in an instant.

It might be a hard pill to swallow but Dave and the Foo fighters are far more popular and accomplished than SP. Like, way more popular. SP at its full throttle 96 peak is just an average day for the Foo's. Dave is an absolute beast of a musician as well. Billy was a better songwriter at his best, but the longevity of SP is marred by years of his whining and bad music.

They've surpassed relevancy and become legendary. They're basically like Rush.

After the mid 00's? Echoes is a banger and Wasting Light is a masterpiece.

They have 12 #1 hit singles. By comparison SP only has one hit song (if we're being total commercial here) with 1979.

While MCIS is a diamond release, it only sold 100,000 more albums than SD from 1995 to 2012. It's around 5 mil copies (it literally only counts as a diamond album based on a technicality).

Technically SP stands at 14.2 million album sales (adjusted for the bloated sales of MCIS). The Foo's are over 30+ million despite not capturing that 91-93 wave/spike in album sales.

30 top ten radio singles vs SP's 14. A similar organization would be the Grammy's - Foo's have 11 wins and 27 nominations vs SP's 2 wins, 11 nominations.

I'm not trying to say I like the Foo's over SP, but it shouldn't be any surprise that they're in the HoF. I mean Dave hangs out with Macca and has side projects with Zeppelin royalty.

Billy really did it to himself and truly, he could have been as big as Dave had he not let his ego get the best of him.

Also Beck should be in R&R HOF. Insane range in this music styles. Has done whatever he wants for the past 25 years. Can rap and sing.

The man does it all.

90s Foo Fighters =/= 2021 Foo Fighters. SP basically died in 2000. FF did not. You all are living in the pass
