The thing is, the guy is involved in dozens of musical projects. He doesn't need money so there's really no incentive for him to pander to airplay interests.
Don't you think it's possible that FF just happens to be the outlet where he gets to express those things? He certainly has plenty of other musical outlets so he doesn't have to (or want to) put all of his creative juice into just Foo Fighters.
You know, if people didn't have emotional relationships with ballads, they wouldn't sell the way they do. Maybe Grohl is actually just a normal human being like the rest of us.
