What is your opinion on this? Has Foo Fighters been able to carve a niche for itself in the music industry? Has it been successful in breaking away from that Nirvana-breakup-band tag?? Does it affect them in any way??

I think they've successfully broken away, yes. I'm an old geezer and was around for Nirvana, but my 18 year old nephew had no idea Dave Grohl had even been in Nirvana until I told him. I think they've managed to defy a lot of labelling to become known as just a solid rock and roll band.

I know kids who love Fooies, but have no idea who Nirvana are, so yes, I think they have broken away from the Nirvana stigma and all that came with it. Dave is an amazing musician who definitely deserves respect for what he's done musically over the years, not only with Foo, but with all the other musicians he's worked with over the years.

Definately think they can stand on their own. While theyre still a rock band, their sound is their own, not really nivana-y. And Dave grohl is an amazing musician in his own right. Not to mention sexy lol.

Dave's a great guitarist and a fantastic drummer. I'm glad he's able to do his own thing, because he can finally show just how tallented he really is. Foo Fighters OWN Nirvana. I got bored with nirvana really quick. Catchy songs they might have been, but when you play guitar like i do, it get's boring really fast.

Hell yeah!...Foo FIghters is a band by itself and with the exception of dave grohl being in the band, I see no connection with Nirvana!
