Just heard an advertisement on the radio for the Foo Fighters and it contained this quote “The world’s best American rock band…"
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” /?><st1:country-region w:st=“on”><st1:place w:st=“on”>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></o:p>
