Bit of a strange comparison but Nirvana for me I guess... I think there's probably three or four songs of both I hear from time to time, nights out or what have you but i've not sat down and listened to either in yonks. I'm not too ashamed to say I requested Everlong the other night, always liked that one.

I think one thing that separates the two for me is that Nirvana was relevant in their day, whereas Foo Fighters were at first but continue to produce this post-grunge "alternative rock" that, at least to me, has been irrelevant for over a decade.

Now that's not to say we can't enjoy music that isn't relevant to today's trends, don't get me wrong. I don't exactly follow trends when choosing music to listen to. I just feel Foo Fighters and practically all post-grunge bands are just boring radio rock at this point. Nirvana went out on a high note.

I wonder if Kurt was still alive, and say the band broke up. I wonder what his new lineup would sound like.

I liked Nirvana cause it was new, they changed the view on that style of music to make it popular, so i chose Nirvana..

Nirvana was awesome in a groundbreaking sort of way. I say that not to be some pseudo-edgy 'tard with a nostalgia hard-on, but because they really were. I just really liked that grunge sounds, moreso than I liked the grunge from Pearl Jam or Alice in Chains which I see as much darker and less energetic.

Foo Fighters first 2 CDs were good. After that, I think they kinda turned into background music for me. Nothing they do really sounds all that interesting or new to me anymore, though I think Grohl seems like a cool dude.

I don't think that would happen. First of all, the group was tightknit. Secondly, Kurt didn't really want to be a rock star, so he would've begged the old group to "burn out" for one last concert had they broken up.

If it wasn't for the death of Kurt Cobain I'm sure Nirvana would have pumped out a few more albums. With that being said Mr. Grohl still produces a somewhat Nirvana-esque style to his music, although it is more up to date than its predecessor

Nirvana had a far more raw sound. He even admits he is nowhere near the song writer Kurt was.

Nirvana will always overshadow Dave Grohl's career with the Foo Fighters. I liked Grohl better playing the drums and supporting Cobain on harmony vocals.

That doesn't in anyway suggest that the Foo Fighters aren't a good band though.
