Foo Fighters - Marigold (Live)

I know it's pretty uncool nowadays to say you like the Foo Fighters (maybe it always was), and I have to admit, their last few albums really haven't done much for me. When I saw that they put out an acoustic live album this month it seemed like one of those typical holiday season cash grabs, and I didn't give it another thought. But then something in the track listing caught my eye and gave me enough reason to at least seek out an MP3: a cover of the Nirvana song "Marigold". This was actually the only Nirvana song ever recorded that Dave Grohl sang lead vocals and played guitar on; it was originally released as a b-side to the "Heart-Shaped Box" single. As it turns out, the Foos' live rendition of the song doesn't really add much to it but I thought someone else out there might be curious to hear it too.

You're an idiot. Dave WROTE Marigold. He wrote most of the FF songs whilst still in Nirvana, and it's never been "uncool" to like Foo Fighters. You're obviously an out-of-touch, ignorant moron, with SHITTY taste in music. Fucking hipster.
