I have zero interest in new AC/DC material and honestly think they only have two albums that are good all the way through (Highway to Hell and Back in Black)

Dirty Deeds and High Voltage are amazing, what are you talking about?

It would have to be somebody famous, right?

Dave Grohl just got a boner.

The joke is that Dave Grohl has no shame and shoehorns his way into anything he possibly can.

They should just cancel the dates. Who wants to see AC/DC with a substitute singer? That's stupid.

But the idea that foo fighters and ac/dc are hugely different types of music? It's all dumb hard rock.

Foo Fighters skews way younger. They belong to the Nirvana/Pearl Jam/System Of A Down crowd. AC/DC's is the Joe Six Pack/Good Ol' Boy crowd. Music tonalities are way different. AC/DC values a basic beat, a strong riff, and screeching guitar solos. Foo Fighters are more layered and melodic in comparison.

Pearl Jam and Nirvana get regular rotation on classic rock stations. It's all dad Rock. Their important records were all made 25 years ago. The local hard rock radio station round here has a new billboard up with pictures of 3 musicians: Steven Tyler, angus young, and Dave grohl. They've been the same radio format for 30 years.

Ehhh, I think you guys are really overthinking it. AC/DC plays arenas, it's not like their audience is filled with rough customers. At the most recent Chicago show, I definitely saw multiple people in Foo Fighters shirts.

AC/DC is a band that has long transcended its original audience niche.

Exactly. There are families with kids at ac/dc shows. There are bikers and truckers and jocks and cops at foo fighters concerts. It's the same arena rock audience.

Th idea that the foo fighters is some cerebral high concept rock music is really funny though.

If Brian truly can't tour anymore, they should just hang it up and retire (as much as it kills me to say that). It's a miracle they pulled off a lead singer change back in 1980 when we lost arguably the greatest front man of all-time, but at this point, they've had a really awesome run, and I couldn't think of a single person that would fit that bill.

Using Van Halen as an example: Roth was great, Hagar was good, but the last thing AC/DC needs is a Gary Cherone (not comparing Dave Grohl, just making a general example).

A better example is Queen with Paul Rodgers or The Doors with Ian Astbury. Who wants to see either of those bands? At least the Gary Cherone Van Halen had an album to tour in support of.

There's rumors floating out there that Brian's replacement for the rest of the tour will be Axl Rose. Which... bleh

That can't be true.
