1. What's your favorite Nirvana song? Why?
2. What's your favorite Foo Fighters song? Why?
>implying the memevins are good
1. My favorite Nirvana song is probably Come As You Are. I think the main riff is pretty enjoyably, I think that approximate pitch for the whole song was what Kurt where Kurt excelled at singing tone and style.
The second refrain is one of my favorite pieces of rock music part of the reason being that I'm a weird dude and he's trying to convince other people that he's not a threat and don't mean any harm, he's misunderstood and I always will be as well. I know it's gay fuck you.
2. My favorite is The Pretender. It's a Fuck the Man modern rock song giving the middle finger to G. W. I think the chorus could be better but the verses and bridge in that song are perfect. Quintessential hard rock and raw rock vocals with what I consider the perfect amount of grit and volume for a rock verse and chorus. I've long considered that bride one of my favorite rock build-ups in a song.
Fuck I'm high.

Pennyroyal Tea, Serve The Servants or All Apologies. I love Tea's downer yet abstract lyrics. It's also simple as fuck yet extremely memorable. All Apologies is just a amazing display of melody and the lyrics are also pretty good. The final chants are one of the best moments of In Utero. Serve the Servants has one of my fav Nirvana solos and dantastic lyrics. As you can see I favor In Utero the most.
Everlong. Love it's lyrics and it's probably the best song they made. My Hero is also pretty damn good. Long Road to Ruin is underrated.
1. Serve the Servants because it talks about parents getting a divorce and coming to terms with not hating your parents but having no desire to talk to them.
2. Monkey Wrench because it has good lyrics and it sounds good.
It's either Dumb or Serve the Servants. The former is one of Kurt's prettier melodies and I still get feels from the lyrics after all these years. StS is an asskicker and probably Kurt's best solo.
Can't believe it hasn't been mentioned, but Stacked Actors is fucking fantastic.
Hairspray Queen from Incesticide
Really raw and the bass is driving. Also, I like how Kurt goes nuts with his vocals
Maybe Aneurysm though. That's more of a real song.
Everlong is probably the best song, but I'd say my favorite is Floaty. Classic Dave; the song writing is not remarkable, but the drums carry it.
If you can't enjoy a song just because it is popular, then you clearly have a problem.
Obviously it's overrated and everything, but that doesn't mean it isn't good. And you're just too interested in your ego.
>Nirvana - Polly, Breed or Love Buzz
>Foo Fighters - Monkey Wrench
Actually kind of hard to pick just one but I'm saying Aneurysm. I think it's basically the most "fun" Nirvana ever sounded, if that makes sense.
I dunno, but I'll Stick Around riffs hard.
1. Serve the Servants or All Apologies
I don't really know desu
All Apologies sounds like one of those classic songs that could have been written by anyone at any time
Serve the servants probably because it's more than the typical Nirvana powerchords and feedback, he finally threw some extended harmony in a song, it really gave it some colour that a lot of his other songs lack
2. Ain't it the life or Aurora
FF showing some rare restraint, colour and dynamics
They're lovely songs and not just "muh 70's rawk n roll" worship.
Radio Friendly Unit Shifter
I love all of In Utero but I love how it sounds like Grohls about to break his drum kit he's hitting it so hard during the chorus.
I'll Stick Around
Not a big fan of them but this one basically sounds like a Nirvana song.
Come as You Are. Simple, but epitomizes Nirvana and the sound of grunge as a whole for me.
Everlong. Again, a classic song of its era. Maybe not the technically best song of theirs, or even the most entertaining, but it's the song that defines Grohl's post-Nirvana career the best.
>Bonus Round: Dave Grohl-featured song not from Nirvana or the Foos
A Song for the Dead by Queens of the Stone Age. His drumming is immense, whether the track is the best from SftD or not.
>Nirvana - Lithium (Live) or Heart Shaped Box
>Foo Fighters - The Best of You or Congregation
