- Something from Nothing – Foo Fighters
Funny relationship with Foo Fighters, think he is a great front man and nice bloke, but i always prefer his side projects or when he is with naother band (like Them Crooked Vultures, QOTSA etc). I’ve seen them live twice at festivals and they really do know how to get a crowd going, but there recorded music just leaves me cold, to safe and dullPosted 6 months agoDaveyBoyWonderMember
Latest album is dull. Might have to give it another go…
I love the Foo Fighters, I really do but apart from Wasting Light which I thought was an album full of decent stuff, all their other albums tend to be 2/3/4 decent songs and the rest average.
Won’t stop listening to them though and I really don’t see the correlation between Holy Diver and Something From Nothing?Posted 6 months agoCountZeroMember
Has there ever been such a blatant rip-off of another song’s riff (Dio’s Holy Diver).
Bloody thieves.Posted 6 months ago
Never knowingly heard anything of Dio’s, but in my experience it’s not hard to find almost identical riffs being used by any number of bands, Zeppelin in particular have been criticised over the years for ‘borrowing’ blues riffs.
I would respectfully suggest you calm down dear and put a record on and have a nice cup of tea.paulneenan76Member
One of my favourite tracks by any band but I do see the comparison. But, watch the documentary, the episode where they create this track and it’s not a blatant rip-off. I think Joe Walsh is on it.
The Jam’s “Start” is Tax Man, Weller straight up said it. ELO did something very similar.Posted 6 months ago
Noel Gallagher ripped-off Marc Bolan. It happens.
