Fan of both but curious of OG thoughts? Criteria below:

1) Originality
2) Quality
3) not sure??

Thought I would ask O|G - thoughts? Video samples below:

lol, Smashing Pumpkins by far ..

Foo Fighters all day!!

The best Smashing Pumpkins was better than the best Foo Fighters but overall the Foo Fighters have been a more consistent band. 

Smashing Pumpkins just on the strength of Siamese Dream. FF are probably a lot more entertaining live, but that record is untouchable IMO Phone Post 3.0

^^agree

I have to agree with this too. Phone Post 3.0

Mellon collie and siamese dream are better than any album FF have put out. But all other SP albums are garbage except a few songs. Phone Post 3.0

Bump?!6 for Foo's and 3 for SP..

It's not even close. Won't even dignify it by answering.



Looking forward to:



"Creed vs Metallica - who wins?"


Comparison is not good - one band trying to align and see the vision of the cross and the other band is trying to turn the cross faster, faster...

I think the comparison you are trying to throw out is FNM vs Nicklesack...

Foo fighters went dad rock after Colour and the shape. But that's a pretty perfect album. Phone Post 3.0

Pumpkins all day Phone Post 3.0

Smashing Pumpkins all day long. Siamese Dream is an incredible album, and I don't think Foo Fighters have a song that can touch Rocket, Cherub Rock, Hummer, Mayonnaise, or Soma.

Someone said that the Foo Fighters have turned to Dad rock......I'd say that's more or less accurate.

Smashing Pumpkins by a mile. Billy Corgan seems like a douche and Dave Grohl is the man but if this is about the music...it's just not close. Phone Post 3.0

Foo fighters by far
And I like the pumpkins Phone Post 3.0

Foo fighters for sure. Phone Post 3.0

JoeMimic - Aren't the Pumpkins a pretty awful live band? I swear I've read that several times. Phone Post 3.0


Ugh Pumpkins....Saw them live around the time their drummer assisted in OD'ing some other guy in the 90's. Seeing them live turned me off to the band forerver. Heard Corgin talking on XM radio a few months ago about being a genius and it was  sad.
