Dave Grohl: 'New Nirvana Will F--king Happen'
Foo Fighters 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." Meanwhile, the Foos were officially named No. 1 artist in the history of Billboard Alternative chart, claiming the top ahead of Red Hot Chili Peppers at No. 2, Linkin Park at No. 3 and Green Day at No. 4. Nirvana claimed spot No. 19, you can check out the full Top 10 below or head over to Billboard for the entire Top 50. In related news, Nirvana guitarist Pat Smear recently commented that Nirvana should get back to performing without late frontman Kurt Cobain. "Why the f--k wouldn't we play Nirvana songs?!" he said. "That's my attitude. I get it, y'know, but I don't know ... for me it's like, 'Why wouldn't we?'" Top 10 Artists in Billboard Alternative Chart History: 01. Foo Fighters 02. Red Hot Chili Peppers 03. Linkin Park 04. Green Day 05. U2 06. R.E.M. 07. Incubus 08. Pearl Jam 09. The Offspring 10. Bush Do you agree with Dave on this one?
