By the way, I'm just ****ing with you.
I do think it's pretty silly to lump Foo Fighters in with those other 3 bands. Just because they play a band on the radio doesn't mean it's mass-produced crap.
Some bands write music for the radio but there are also bands that get played on the radio whether they want to be or not.
Do you think Pink Floyd ever intended to be one of the most played (on the radio) bands of all time?
