Just heard an advertisement on the radio for the Foo Fighters and it contained this quote “The world’s best American rock band…”

<?xml:namespace prefix = o ns = “urn:schemas-microsoft-com:office:office” /?>


What does that mean? Don’t “world’s best” and “American” clash a little there? Wouldn’t “Best American Rock Band” be a better phrase? This isn’t a shot at the band at all (or American rock bands, if that is a category of music at all), I like their music; I’m just mocking the phrasing… are there are bands that are classified as “American rock bands” that aren’t from <?xml:namespace prefix = st1 ns = “urn:schemas-microsoft-com:office:smarttags” /?>America/st1:place/st1:country-region? I’m assuming this phrase is

somehow related to the Grammy that they just won, but I believe it was for Best Hard Rock Performance/o:p
