Gonna have to be unpopular here and say that I actually strongly dislike both bands. I never got into them and I doubt I ever will.

Nirvana sound like a psychological experiment, whereby a sleepwalking man was transported into a studio and exposed to various guitar noises, before having his vocal reactions recorded and dispatched for profit.

And every Foo Fighters song seems to follow the same pattern, whereby Grohl will repeatedly shout the chorus a little bit louder than he previously did.

I once listened to Echoes, Silence, Patience & Grace on a plane and was violently ill as a result.

What's with all the hate for the Foos on here? Damn. I voted for the Foo Fighters. I like Nirvana a lot too, but I'll listen to a Foo Fighters album more than a Nirvana one on occasion.

Nirvana is overrated just because it almost killed off both rock and metal, but Cobain blowing his brains out really made them a brillaint band, just as Queen got legendary when Mercury died. Stupid if you ask me, musically speaking Foo fighters by far.

Overall content, as it were, Foo Fighters are better, right; Kurt wasn't Steve Vai on the guitars. Krist Novoselic wasn't Bryan Beller either. But Nirvana were more original; their melodies were richer. In my humble opinion, Nirvana were hugely better than F. Fighters. So I went with Kurt's band.

I'll have to go with Nirvana.

I have heard a few songs from them both (just more Nirvana) and it can't be compared. Foo Fighters are alright, but Nirvana is way better.

Nirvana's songs just cut deep really deep. They have some kind of emotional appeal to me, and they're well made, but I can't say the same about FF, although they do have some good songs.

Nirvana. The Foo Fighters are just another commercial rock band, they have some alright tunes, but nothing really all that special.

Songs like Hairspray Queen, AeroZeppelin, Mexican Seafood, and Endless Nameless are far from commerical rock songs.

As far as I'm concerned that's all Nirvana is to me is Nevermind.
