Remember “Good Charlotte”? Now they’re back with a different group as “The Madden Brothers”

Can’t say I’ve ever been a fan of their music. They were on Jimmy Fallon Tuesday night though.

OK, let’s get something straight. Foo Fighters and Big Wreck have been my favourite bands since the late ’90s. I don’t like every single song on every single album! I like that they both take risks that die hard fans may hate. Foo Fighters had less favourable songs from the 4th album “One by One” all the way to their 6th album “Echoes, Silence, Patience & Grace” for me. Their 5th album, the double album, with 10 rock songs and 10 acoustic songs, I preferred the acoustic album. The rock CD had a few songs I liked. The acoustic album I could listen to it all the way through.

Why did this not make it too the, meh, 4th album but was released as a B-Side?

Big Wreck 2nd album “The Pleasure & The Greed” had lots of incredible songs and about 4 or 5 in the first half of the 16 song album. Foo Fighters & Big Wreck songs that I like, above for FF and here for BW. http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=B2T0Fa-fNGQ 1st song

Until I saw Big Wreck in ’99 and bought Foo Fighters 2nd album, “The Colour & The Shape” in ’97, U2 was the be all & end all for me. Yes, I still like U2 from “Boy” to “How to Dismantle an Atomic Bomb”.

Why did this turn into a music blog? Because “music is a BIG @#$%#$& deal”-Dave Grohl

“Learn something from your mistakes and don’t do them again”
