Or to answer the bigger question, what the hell does anyone see in Dave Grohl?

Try Alice in Chains again and again and again until you like it.

If you like Nirvana, you have to like Alice in Chains .

Default Thanks for the replies

Thanks for all the replies guys, I guess I have some listening to do. As for the guy who doesn't like Dave Grohl I do not see how this is possible: Grohl is awesomely talented, a nice guy, and has a great sense of humor. . . what's not to like?

-Sonic Youth
-Pearl Jam
-Radiohead
-Led Zeppelin
-KISS
-Alice In Chains
-Soundgarden
-Stone Temple Pilots
-Dinosaur Jr.
-Mudhoney
-Fu Manchu
-Metallica

There's bound to be others that I'm forgetting, but this should give you some idea. Basically I'm dying for some hot new music to listen to, but the more and more I try, the more I get discouraged and start to think "Is there ANYTHING out there that I'll like?"

Basically if any of you good people could give me some suggestions of new music to try I'd greatly appreciate it. It can be "grungy" or not, but please keep in mind what I like (which is obviously very limited!) and what I do not (based on the above list).

Thanks for any help!

You hated Fu Manchu, you are dead to me

Mediocre efforts.

Awesome talent, but hasn't used it in a while. Not really since his drumming for Probot, though I don't really follow all his work. Grohl is the kind of guy who you respect for being multi talented but don't like because he bites off more then he can chew. I would much rather see him do high quality drumming for most of his career and maybe a bit of on the side guitaring, compared to being good at a few things but spectacular at nothing.

I also thought In Your Honor was poor and overated to the extreme.

How can you dislike the Pixies? Give them another try, my god. Get the album Surfer Rosa.

Same applies to Radiohead and Sonic Youth, they just take a bit of listening to
