Yes. Me again.

You can't like the Foo Fighters anymore.

And now, they're corporate $$$$ sucking whores who only write music for money and fame.

I like The Foo Fighters

It's actually $79.99, but there's a $73 rebate.

(Fuck Best Buy.)

I see where you're coming from! Sometimes I find them totally kickass and other times utterly boring. Depends on the song I guess.

Okay, so I downloaded it (since, you know, fuck Best Buy). I assume this is just a collection of previously released B-sides, so I'm not expecting a ton:
  1. "Best of You" (live)--It's okay. I never liked this song much or understood why they made it the lead single. Dave's voice is on, at least.
  2. "D.O.A." (demo)--It's a pretty fleshed-out, full-band demo. The mix is a little less punchy, but I can't really tell the difference between this and the album version. It still rawks, though.
  3. "Skin and Bones"--Boring acoustic song. Although the bass and drums sound neat.
  4. "World"--Boring electric song. Long too at 5:40. Do not listen to this song while operating heavy machinery. Dave needs to be careful with his sleepy voice.
  5. "I Feel Free"--Pretty straightforward cover, except, you know, louder and faster and the vocals aren't as good. I think Taylor sings the "I can walk down the street..." part?
  6. "FFL"--Just a lot of screaming.

Never liked them in the first place, so couldn't care less.

The CD/EP doesn't look like anything to get all excited about anyway.

As for selling out...I never knew they hadn't.

never much cared for them, though they weren't offensively bad.

this is a touch rich, however.

Yeah like this is new. Anyway it's their music, they can do what they want with it.

I think the Foo Fighters are fairly underrated actually; Dave Grohl can write a decent, catchy pop melody but he usually gets written off as another MTV trash-band.
