Can't check it at work, but I'm totally excited about another droning, monotonous album full of the same old power-strummed riffs and boring lyrics about nothing from these guys! :yesway:

Or maybe DG should stick with Them Crooked Vultures, a band that doesn't suck.

I've always liked the foo's. This song is no different. I couldn't get into them crooked vultures. I haven't dug nearly anything that josh homme has been a part of.

Heard it this morning. It's pretty cool, definitely interested to hear the rest of the album.

And Chris, Them Crooked Vultures are fucking awesome. I saw them live last year and it was one of the best shows I've been to.

I kind of have to agree with Chris here. The verse riff is different, but the chorus sounds like every other Foo Fighters song in existence.

Now Them Crooked Vultures, that is a HELL of a band.

I'm loving the guitar tone here, and the vocals sound real slick, especially considering this was recorded in a garage.

Dave Grohl has always been able to create great vocal melodies and hooks. This is a very good song.

I'm more just curious about how it sounds because of the production methods. Sounds pretty good to me. I kind of agree about foo fighters being a bit boring and droning, but the verse riff is pretty cool and different for them.

I'm really liking this. The intro was my favorite part, but the whole song is pretty cool.

:agreed:

If there was a lifetime achievement award for monotony, Foo Fighters would definitely win it.

It's not that I don't think they're talented. They are. Grohl is a good songwriter and (having seen TCG live) a beast of a drummer. It's just that the combo in Foo Fighters churns out dozens of songs that sound like they're all in the same key, with the same chorus, the same vocal hooks, and the same basslines.

I know they're different, but his voice over the constant power strumming just makes every single song they put out sound the same to me. :lol:
