I like how the joke Foo Fighters bashing thread turned into a genuine Foo Fighters bashing thread.

I don't think of it as bashing so much as not giving a flying fuck.

yea they did... and not for nothing, at least best buy is kinda cool... target's just lame.



i've abandoned my whole "they're sellouts" stance that i had when i was younger. if i did, i couldn't listen to most of the acts i do listen to... and that's no fun.

u2 released an exclusive cd at target, and had that whole apple thing goin' on (yea yea yea... they didn't take money for the commerical, but they most certainly got a piece of every single u2 special edition iPod that was sold)
the stones have been selling themselves to the highest bidder for years now
paul mccartney's doing bank commercials
the who have liscensed songs for CSI: and Hummer
bob dylan did a victoria's secret ad

who's left? pearl jam and springsteen. who ironicly have the best ticketing systems for their fans of any major act going. maybe there is something to this sell out thing...

I like the Foo Fighters but not a lot. It could be Best Buy. And one time Ben Folds had a limited edition live C.D. that was only available from Tower Records.

U2's Target EP was awesome, incidentally. I paid $15 for an import "Beautiful Day" single, and then U2 gave U.S. fans a way to have those two B-sides plus a bunch others for $7, all in one nice place. The Foo EP is probably a good deal for fans too, if you like their boring B-sides.

Then Ben Folds is a sell out as well.

Making music available at a corporate record chain while mom/pop records shops struggle to survive.

Shame on Ben Folds, evil corporate $$$$ sucking whore.

Best Buy is just as lame as Target these days. I remember back in the late 1990s and there would be rows and rows and rows of nothing but CDs. Nowadays I go in there and it's one little corner of the store dedicated to CDs. They didn't even have the new Kate Bush CD last time I went in there. Screw 'em.
