Dunno, Grohl seems as much a pop-oriented songwriter as Gaga. Isn't that the whole thing with that guy? That's he's this one-man clearinghouse for music nostalgia, much of which is pop? If one minute he's reuniting Voivod, the next the Beatles. Lay you ten to one he drums for Miley before she's done.
Most of us don't know one-tenth of all the music that's out there, but It's always going to be true that the music you dislike the most is the music you know the least about. There's an old story about a famous writer who ranted for hours at a party about a film he hated. Somebody thought to ask if the writer had even seen the film. 'Of course I haven't seen the film,' the writer retorted. 'Do you think I would waste my time seeing a film as bad as I have described?'
