Your creepy attitude, repeatedly harrassing a stranger on a message board, bringing up weeks old comments like you just did here sort of proves my point. FOH with that $hit dude, I’m not interested.

I'm not even a Dave Grohl apologist but this is laughably stupid. His side projects and collaborations alone have sold more. He is the studio drummer on all of Tenacious D's albums, Queens of the Stone Age's best selling albums, the super group Them Crooked Vultures, his Probot album and all the numerous Soundtrack albums he has released from his movies.

You're definitely more into meth than math...

Instead of honoring them with an induction, Grohl's Foo Fighters should get banned already just for their awful aggressive and militant art work messages:

Even Grohl's revived old cover band The Dee Gees may be inducted into the Hall of Fame before any pumpkin...

LMFAO nothing new, FF has always been more about Dave's lighthearted histrionism and acting skills than actual songs. Smart move, he carefully avoided some very uncomfortable comparisons for sure.

They are now considered the real deal due to a lack of competitors and that's another Omega level of cringe but maybe it's a different story.

Dave Grohl is so funny to me, i just like to watch him for his differnt characters he can do:





Especially great that these gags can stand the test of time and have aged like golden fartcloudsounds:



This is still so fun


Probably my fave:

In a decade Grohl will be Townshend like with his hearing so go see him while you can. Dude doesn’t wear monitors and said like a decade ago that one ear is already more than halfway gone with hearing loss. Not wearing plugs or in ear monitors is more rock star like.

it's actually not uncommon at all for rock musicians my age to list Smashing Pumpkins as an influence

the original run of albums age'd pretty well

I originally didn't bother with this thread based on its title, because it's hard to think of a consistently more successful, prolific, and relevant rock band over the last 20 years. Certainly Linkin Park, though their rap and synths makes them a bit apples to oranges...and the foos easily outlasted them. Radiohead? Not in the USA, at least. Waiting on a War is on heavy rotation on my local alt station right now, which is pretty crazy when you consider that he's 52 and getting played in between 21 Pilots and Billie Eilish. Then you can throw in that that the Foo Fighters were huge in the '90s too.

Having said that, I was way off the mark on what I assumed their album sales were. They've got exactly 1 album with >2 million US sales and that's only 2.3 million and it happened all the way back in 1997 (The Colour and the Shape). Ultimately, I'd say the Foo Fighter's lack of album sales is more of a statement about guitar rock in the new millennium and album sales in general than the band, itself.

Also, it doesn't hurt that the old people that vote in the RRHoF aren't frightened and confused by the Foo Fighters, and Dave Grohl is likable.

I personally think the FF suck, but am not one bit surprised they are in the HoF before SP. While Grohl and crew have been grinding away making huge rock albums and selling out arenas, Billy has been spewing conspiracy theory bullshit on Alex Jones, hawking his pathetic backyard wrestling league, doing daily diatribes on Instagram Live about topics he has no qualifications to speak about, and supporting no-name artists like Sierra Swan and Linda Strawberry.

After all that, are you really surprised nobody give a shit about SP right now?
Calling alternative theories conspiracy theories makes you sound so rock n' roll, doesn't it? Yeah, because the US government never conspired against anybody and the msm never told a lie. Yeah, you're the Foofoos of a SP fan.
And how exactly is supporting small artists a bad thing?
And why shouldn't he have any opinion?
You're basically criticising him for not being a media whore and for refusing to play along for fame and fortune.
