Fans recently noticed how Foo Fighter’s “Nothing At All” sounded like Nirvana’s “Aneurysm.” One of the fans on Reddit noted that ‘Aneurysm’ doesn’t have a drum intro. However, questions were raised regarding the buildup in the “I’ll get by or maybe I won’t” where it sounded familiar to Aneurysm intro. The fan further revealed that he is a drummer and noted that the drums in the chorus are “basically the same.”
One fan noted the post and wrote: “The drummer from Aneurysm should sue the Nothing at all guy”
Second one wrote: “I bet he would too, I don’t think they get along well. Nobody’s ever seen them in the same room together!”
Third fan wrote: “I’ve made this comparison before when listening to nothing at all, whether it was intentional or not still super sick sounding”
Another said: “The drum fills in the chorus sound like the drum fills in the intro of Aneurysm,” while another chimed in: “I can see that. I also always felt On a Plain’s chorus could fit into Nothing At All’s chorus. Especially the OOOO ooooo’s”
On May 21 this year, Foo Fighters debuted their new track ‘Nothing At All’ in a live stream. The livestream, titled Foo Fighters: Preparing Music For Concerts, was recorded at the band’s 606 studios in Northridge, California. It featured debut performances of songs from their forthcoming album, as well as behind-the-scenes footage of the recording.
The band played an eight-song set during their rehearsal, which was shot in black and white. In addition to classics like ‘All My Life’ and ‘Monkey Wrench’, they played their recent singles ‘Rescued’ and ‘Under You’. They also debuted ‘Nothing At All’, an unreleased track that will be featured on their 11th album ‘But Here We Are’.
Meanwhile, the song “Aneurysm” by Nirvana was written by vocalist and featured guitarist Kurt Cobain, bassist Krist Novoselic, and drummer Dave Grohl. It first appeared as a B-side on the band’s breakthrough “Smells Like Teen Spirit” single in September 1991. A second studio version was released on the rarities compilation, Incesticide, in December 1992. It was written in 1990 and this is one of the few Nirvana songs credited to all three members.
