You decide: Foo Fighters vs. King Missile

While driving to work the other day, I was suddenly taken aback to hear the strains of a song I hadn’t heard in years emanating from my car radio. ‘Wow, they’re actually playing this,’ I thought. ‘I would’ve never expected…’

Then, just as quickly as the wave of nostalgia had hit me, the feeling was gone. I was listening to a different song.

Causing my confusion was the track “Rope,” the debut single off the Foo Fighters’ new album “Wasting Light,” which I was mistaking for “Detachable Penis” an early ‘90s hit by avant-garde rockers King Missile. Though not an exact match nor a repeat of the infamous Coldplay vs. Joe Satriani debate, the intros still bear a striking similarity to each other.

So, do Dave Grohl and company have a certain lost appendage on their minds or was John S. Hall’s semi-obscene ode to his missing member really ahead of its time?

You decide. Take a listen yourself by viewing the two videos below and leave your thoughts in the comment section. Not convinced? That’s okay too. Let me hear what you have to say.
