Has anyone else seen this yet?

I saw it this past week at a movie theater (was supposed to see it week before, but some company screwed up the satellite feed haha). One of the best, most engaging music documentaries I've ever seen. They went from Nirvana when Dave joined, up through the recording of "Wasting Light" at Dave's house. They interviewed everyone from the band, past and present, and you get a good look on everything the Foos had to deal with, like the comparisons to Cobain and Nirvana. Also a good look at the drama surrounding the drums for "Colour and the Shape".

And you also see how genuine and kickass Mr. Grohl is. He's open about all the mistakes hes made and doesnt try to sugarcoat anything.

Yep, just watched it. It was nothing short of great, a very interesting thing to watch, especially as i wasn't really familiar with the Foo Fighters' history, i was never really their fan before. And i deffinitely see why Dave wanted to distance himself (and the band) from Nirvana, as they're two completely different bands. I'd hate doing interviews if i were in Dave's place, with Nirvana (well, mainly Kurt) being constantly brought up. As much as i love Nirvana (one of my favorite bands), Foo Fighters ARE Dave's MAIN band now, Nirvana being gone and all. Though at the same time, comparisons with them are inevitable, since you can deffinitely hear their influences in Foo's music, which isn't a bad thing. And even more so now, that Krist Novoselic appeared as a guest on I Should Have Known, a brilliant song.

And is it just me, or was Dave's floor mopping in the end a reference at Smells Like Teen Spirit video? That looks like a thing Dave would do on purpose, just for the kicks :D

the best is Grohl's story about getting called out for crying in the documentary, and taylor's dig at Blink-182 ("well, we never ran naked in our videos")
