It's a shame the foo fighters are terrible.

Another example of you being arrogant about everything.

They can't be that terrible because they just won 5 GRAMMY AWARDS.

And as we all know, grammy awards are the thing that dictates how good something is.

The Foo Fighters have written some great songs, get over yourselves, just because you don't like doesn't make it terrible.

And by that same logic, just because you like them doesn't mean their songs are great

Can i just ask, by this logic where does that place your band on the scale of good to crap?

At least Zoot has reasoning to back up his statements: reasons that aren't "BUT THEY WON GRAMMYS!" Cuz everyone and their cat knows that the Grammys are renowned for being based on nothing other than music politics, popularity, and most of all cash monehhhhh.

Dave Grohl is an idiot and evil. As if the average human has access to the expensive ass tape machines and mic-pres and other fancypants analog gear they used, let alone a world class producer. Gimme a break, Grohl.

This is basically it, it's cringeworthy to hear this stuff just because he did an album not long ago on tape. Big deal, you don't need to correct everything in digital recording in pro tools for instance just because the option is there -_- so you can still keep it 'non perfect' if you want.

And it's rich hearing this from one of the most generic sounding bands ever, and i'm talking about mixing and general production here too.

Quit being a sheep, I don't like the foo fighters either, you guys get these shit storms going and for nothing, so this group of people like a band you don't, it doesn't mean they suck.

Grammy's mean nothing to me. But Dave Grohl says something a lot of people forget in that line of work. Whether the Foos make good music or not is irrelevant, and also totally based on opinion. He spoke a truth.

Music is a different thing for every one. There is nothing inherently wrong with using autotune and such, because music should also be fun. But when it comes down to it, masking your mistakes with a computer program, and having someone else write your tunes, doesn't really make you a musician, nor does it make you a talent.

Putting hard work, dedication, and passion into your work makes you a talent. It's those slightly off-tune notes and the tiny mistakes, it's sitting with your instrument and fiddling around with ideas until it all just pours out ...that's what makes you a talent, and what brings forth the greatest music.

Just my two-cents.

For alt rock though, can you really set the bar that high? And couldn't you give them credit for pretty much writing the Bible of the genre with The Colour and the Shape?

This. Dave Grohl is fine when he's drumming, but when he starts writing the songs it's all generic bullshit.

This.

And anyway, I thought he talking more about pop singers who don't write any of their music and that kind of stuff. It didn't seem like a stab at electronic music. Especially since he then played with Deadmau5.
