Yeah, they were a decent band. I won't knock them or anything. It's just a case of the Yawnsvilles for me now and has been since my Nirvana phase in my teens.

You never know, I may start to listen to them again one day.

I still love In Utero but could easily never willingly listen to them again.

Nirvana. Not really even close for me, since I've never been interested in Foo Fighters.

Nevermind is a damn good album, and In Utero is even better. Uhhh, that one album by Foo Fighters wasn't too bad I guess... Yeah, that one album.

I had my Nevermind phase, when I first started listening to Nirvana, but In Utero, in general, was always my favourite too.

Nevermind just has a nice sound, but it's pop.

In Utero is kind of abrasive. It's still pop-sounding in many ways, but it's definitely not on the same level that Nevermind was. I think it's somewhere between Nevermind and Incesticide/Bleach.

Nevermind is the only thing that I would willingly listen to from Nirvana and I'm more inclined to listen to a larger variety of Foo Fighter songs back to back but as long as I cherry picked them from different albums.

Foo Fighters are absolutely terrible. Nirvana's quality was I'm guessing 80% Kurt. Grohl and the other guy just stunged around whilst Kurt wrote the songs.

Dave Grohl should stay behind the drum kit, or at least go back to it. The Foo Fighters' first two albums were pretty good, but after that there's something about their sound that I can't stand. I don't like his yelling and it just seems constant. STFU.

Nirvana on the other hand, were a great band.

I don't know, I think he can both sing and scream well.

Perhaps, I just find him annoying.
