OK normally I wouldn't do this dumb thread but w/e

I figured I would bring this up to other musicians since the debate has to do with musical talent.

Mars volta vs. Foo fighters

witch is more talented..... I don't want to know who you enjoy more, but an honest evaluation of there talent and who has more.


this is pointless, I know.... its just one of those arguments with a douche.

Talented in terms of what? That they can play good music? Good is subjective ghsfgs.

Mars Volta bring more to the table, Foo Fighters are very conventional in that sense - a standard rock band.

If I was looking for a good comparison for the Volta I'd be gunning at the Chili Peppers.

I honestly cannot stand The Mars Volta, but I have to agree here. There is no point in comparing two bands that are so different.

Wut? In terms of techincal ability, the Volta are better. That's about the only thing you can measure though.

Mars Volta. One man writes ALL of the music, and that is pretty incredible.

Well, skill wise, I know we can all agree that TMV has Foo Fighters backed into a corner and beat to death with a baseball bat, but in the area of actual musical composition, it's hard to compare two bands that are so different. I personally prefer Mars Volta, but I understand anyone that would like Foo Fighters more.

As well as unique. No other band in history can claim that.

:rolleyes: Dave Grohl hasn't written anything as fresh as what Mars Volta does.

If by "fresh" you mean retarded guitar solos used solely to show off then yes, you're right.

My point is that both bands suck.

I'm not talking about guitar solos, I'm talking about the overall albums.
