Evidence .

Aside from having the balls to wear the Jedi robes, gotta give Taylor Hawkins props for having the guts to drum 2112 in front of a ton of Rush fans and Neil Peart

Bonus, the Rush induction speech from Grohl and Hawkins, Grohl did so well can't wait to hear the real deal

I agree. Of course I will always love Nirvana, but Grohl exceeded all expectations and survived the genre. Not a lot of people can say that.

Being the huge Nirvana fan I was, it was probably the only reason I picked up the Foo Fighters' debut album. Boy am I glad I did. They have continued to wow me. I think Wasting Light has been their best album yet, besides MAYBE their first one.

I'm a Colour and the Shape guy, though I really enjoyed the first one, Echoes, and One by One as well. I'm not sold on Wasting light. I think it's good but I don't think it's on par with some of their other albums for me.

Color and the Shape is my personal favorite, but I don't think it's their "best". I think for me, it has more sentimental value.

Love Wheels. When the first came out I despised them. I have really grown to appreciate Dave Grohl as a true artist. They've been added to my bucket list of bands to see. Hope they reunite so I get a chance

I love Colour and the Shape cause I can't think of a bad song on that album. I bought the extended edition and all in all there are 2 songs I don't listen to everytiem they come on. Doll and The Colour and the Shape. I'm such a fan of their version of Baker Street. And I think Everlong is their best song.

They really don't have a bad album, but my least favorite is One by One
