Stéphane Dubord took the February honours once again, but even if he wins today he will have the lowest monthly total he has ever had since we started this game. The rest of you are closing the gap nicely, month after month.
He refused to win quietly, however, as he added this shocking paragraph to his answer:
“Foo Fighters is a better band than Nirvana ever was. Incendiary comment? Probably. But while they might not have had the immediate impact like Nirvana did, their longevity at such a high level of quality makes them one of the biggest bands in the last decade and a half. While Nirvana benefit from massive revisionist history around the pseudo-mythical Cobain, Grohl has simply made great music for a long time.”
Wow. He’s sure to get a wail of protest from PM Perreault, if he is fit enough to respond (he is home recovering from the cold I have been fighting for over a week now). However, I do agree. Foo Fighters will always operate under a cloud of Nirvana-legacy, but they have been better than the root band.
As for Seattle Week, we have a winner. Some say he scrapes salt off fries…and eats the salt. All we know is, he’s called The Stig…er, I mean Stéphane Dubord.
Here are your lyrics for today:
“Don’t come knocking around my door
I don’t want to see your shadow no more
Colored lights can hypnotize
Sparkle someone else’s eyes”
