I actually like Foo and love Mould and all of his incarnations but fail to see the similarity between them.{#Stupid}

 
I mean no slight to Grohl and FFs, (nothing is created in a vacuum) but I noticed a similarity right away - particularly with Sugar.

I saw your response to my comment so I did a quick internet search to see if I was alone in my opinion and found a joint interview that Rolling Stone Italia did with Grohl and Mould in 2013. In it Grohl states:

“A few days ago I posted Bob’s new single, The Descent, on my Facebook page, and some guy commented that it sounded like “a Foo Fighters song”. Grohl bursts out laughing: “Did he really say that? Man, that’s great! I’ve spent all my life trying to rip off his songs, and now they say it’s the other way around!”

I asked my doctor if rock n' roll was right for me. Back in idk...the late 60s.

He said, "It's your thing...you do what you wanna do. I can't tell ya who to sock it to." {#Cheesygrin}

All this means is that there is such a HUGE void of new, good RnR bands (e.g., Rolling Stones, Led, Santana, Who, Dylan, Pink Floyd, Allman Brothers, Grateful Dead, etc) that any mediocre band (like Foo Fighters) can stick around for 20 years put out a bunch of crap albums and then receive false accolades for being a great band. When the standards are low, it's easy to get awards. Nothing worse than watching the leader of this band kissing the ass of Sir Paul McCartney, acting as if he's in the same class.

 Just listen to their music: there ain't much there: it's repetitive, predictable, monotonic, boring. I get it: if you were brought up on this stuff, it's "your music". But there is no way this band comes close to putting out great RnR albums like aforementioned bands.

Ain't fair, is it? Tough. It's only rock n roll and I like it....now that a RnR band (Rolling Stones)!!!

Uh oh...I feel a rant coming on for the band, Arcade Fire!

Yep....and lyrics can be way over-rated. Who cares...this tune rocks.{#Bananajam}

Rightly so
 

That is an insult to Mould and Grohl.  Mould and Grohl are fine musicians and songwriters with a tremendous sense of melody. No self respecting punk rocker exhibits any of these qualities.

Wow. This songs sound just like all their other songs: boring guitar, weak vocals, boring lyrics, no hooks.

Hmmm it sounds like they are following a formula. It's called "thud and drone".
