    You think Grohl gets a cut?

    I heard this and had to look them up, if for nothing else just to see what thieves look like. What a blatant fucking ripoff!

    The streets are extended gutters and the gutters are full of blood and when the drains finally scab over, all the vermin will drown. The accumulated filth of all their sex and murder will foam up about their waists and all the whores and politicians will look up and shout "Save us!"... and I'll look down and whisper "No. ― Alan Moore

    It's Grohl's fault shit like this even exists.

    The frontman's got that anatomy that confuses the living shit out of me. How can you have jeans that fucking tight and skinny, and still have a saggy crotch? I mean, how thin do your legs have to be? My wife's a long distance runner, and she could kick the shit out of him. After completing a marathon.

    Didnt Dave have a writing credit on this one?? If not he should, I mean everyone borrows from here and there but thats "straight up off of a Foo record" similar.

    Link the Foo Fighters part that sounds just like, because I'm not familiar with most Foo songs. I can hear that part having the same kind of style of vocals and guitars as Foo Fighters, but STYLE/SOUND is not protected.

    I have a side project called Blazon Stone which basically mimics the hell out of Running Wild 1988-1998 era, but I don't take any riffs or melodies, just the general sound they had at the moment. And yeah I do NOT try to hide this, because I just view it as a fun as hell proejct I don't take seriously.

    Dissenting opinion: I love the Foo Fighters, and while this song may be very much DIRECTLY inspired by them, it's better than 95% of what's on rock radio right now. So I can't knock it. Plus it's a catchy rock song, and I've always had a place in my heart for this stuff. I can't hate it just because it's not metal.

    In fact I'm buying their album now, so thanks for turning me onto them

    I don't get it

    Does Dave Grohl automatically get a cut from all generic radio rock or something?

    I like this better than anything by the Foo Fighters.

    I could due without staring at the singer's grand canyon sized gap for all his close-ups
