Nirvana are ****. I tried to get into them to see what the fuss was about. Every song on One By One destroys anything I've heard from Nirvana.

Personal opinion.

They're apples and oranges, in my opinion. Dave Grohl (other than Marigold) was not a songwriter with Nirvana. People have analogized it to be a Lennon/McCartney situation. It's largely what you prefer. Nirvana is much darker; much more cryptic lyrically and aesthetically. The Foo Fighters are more in the middle and largely have maintained the same sound. It's really hard to compare the two when you take into account Nirvana only released 3 full length albums over the course of 5 years whereas the Foo Fighters have been together for 20.

As far as preference, I tend to gravitate toward darker lyrics and music. I think Cobain had the ability to really dig deep and exorcise demons through his music. His voice had an amazing emotional quality to it. I like the Foo Fighters a lot, but I can't say I've really seen Grohl go to that point. But, again, they're different people with different experiences.

I can hear the angst in Kurt's voice, pluhhhhh you can see the pain in his eyes, which is why I feel I prefer them more.

However, Foo Fighters got some dang ol' jambos, but the music just vibes different that I never really understood why some compared or had them in a face off.

Exactly. Grohl's Foo Fighters and Nirvana are so different in music style.
