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.

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?'"
