frontman Dave Grohl
discussed the success of his original band Nirvana
, saying that there's a band out there who will repeat such major rock impact once again.
"We meant a lot of different things to a lot of different people,"
he told the Guardian
. "That's one of the great things about music. You can sing a song to 85,000 people and they'll sing it back for 85,000 different reasons."
Grohl explained further, "We were real and visceral, f--ked-up and ugly. That was what people were craving. And that will never go away,"
he said. "There's a band in a garage right now writing songs for an album that will do the same thing 'Nevermind' did some 20 years ago. We don't know who and where, but it will f--king happen again. All it takes is for that storm to break."
