I personally find the Foo Fighters to be really boring conventional rock, so Nirvana all the way.

I cannot believe this is even a thread.

Foo Fighters. They're good. Great, even. And yeah, they got to make more albums than Nirvana did given the circumstances but I hardly even consider them comparable. More comparable, is Alice in Chains to Nirvana or Stone Temple Pilots.

My opinion might be biased because Kurt is one of my favorites but anyways. My favorite FF albums in order are:

The Colour and the Shape
Foo Fighters
In Your Honor
There Is Nothing Left to Lose
Echoes, Silence, Patience & Grace
One By One
Wasting Light

And of course, Nirvana:
Nevermind
In Utero
Bleach

Both great bands. But still hardly comparable.

hmm I don't think I can talk to you anymore if you have Wasting Light at the bottom of your list.

Those, too. Eddie's voice is a little higher pitched than Kurt's but Soundgarden definitely. They're both pretty similar, regardless so yes.

I used to love Nirvana back in the day, but after getting my fill and then some, they've pretty much lost their appeal to me. Kurt Cobains voice is grating and the subject matter of the songs is not as interesting as it once was. I recently listened to the MTV live record again for the first time in 10+ years and the songs I like the most now are the covers. Kurt just comes across as a humourless douche, completely bored with life, which I guess he was. I think I liked that about him once, but now it annoys me.

I'd rather listen to Foo Fighters, even if I don't know them that well. Unlike Kurt, Grohl seems like a highly likeable person.

To be honest, The Colour and the Shape is really the only FF album I can stomach listening to the whole way through. I don't exactly dislike their other albums but other than two or three songs from each they're very forgettable.

No denying that.
