The Worst Album Of The Year (So Far) – When FOO FIGHTERS Cover Legends The BEE GEES

21 July 2021

Band: DEE GEES
The ridiculous name the Foos
came up with for this occasion.

New album: HAIL SATIN
What: Covers of 5 Bee Gees songs from their Saturday Night Fever era and
5 live versions of tracks from the Foos‘ newest LP Medicine At Midnight
Release: The CD version came out on Record Store Day, now you can
stream it on Spotify.

The Bee Gees hits that
the Dee Gees (stupid name)
cover…

“You Should Be Dancing”
“Night Fever”
“Tragedy”
“More Than a Woman”

plus Andy Gibb’s “Shadow Dancing”

First things first. I like the Bee Gees a lot. Between 1966-1969 they were
the champions of melancholic love ballads with timeless pearls like: I’ve Gotta
Get A Message To You / Don’t Forget To Remember Me / Massachusetts / First Of
May
. The moment they started to inhale tons of helium, I wasn’t interested
anymore. I understand why millions of people loved it, but not me, not my
cup of tea.

I like the Foo Fighters (and Dave Grohl, the nicest dude in rock) but I’m not
a devoted fan. I dig their hits and some great album tracks here and there.
But that’s about it.

Now that album! It’s cheap, it’s lousy and it’s lazy. Sounds exactly like if they
copied/pasted the original version of those 5 Bee Gees songs and had nothing
else to do with the project. The Foos pretend to be fans of the Gibb Brothers but
don’t honor them at all with this pathetic affair. I guess they knew they failed badly
as they only, fortunately, covered 5 tracks and added – to make it a full-length product
5 live versions of pieces from their new mediocre album, which is just FF by numbers.

Arrrgghhhh…

Hail Satin is a big contender
for the worst album of 2021.

Here’s why…

FOO FIGHTERS And AC/DC Vox BRIAN JOHNSON Play ‘BACK IN BLACK ‘

11 May 2021

Foo Fighters and AC/DC‘s husky voice Brian Johnson teamed up for charity
project VAX Live: The Concert To Reunite The World as well as other big
names such as Jennifer Lopez, Eddie Vedder, J Balvin, and H.E.R.

It all happened last weekend in a big venue in Los Angeles to an audience
of over 20,000 vaccinated frontline healthcare and essential workers.

The Foos played a 6-song set including a steamed-up cover of AC/DC’s
1980 anthem BACK IN BLACK with Johnson screaming himself dizzy.

For those about to rock, here we go…
