In what way? Because of the noise/screaming? I don’t think so, Foo Fighters had songs/demos like that long before the album was released or that song was created. Dave’s time in Nirvana and with Kurt probably influenced that more than it normally would have. I wouldn’t compare the two.
Happy 20th Anniversary X-Files!
This is a clip of Dave Grohl being interviewed about his appearance on the show in 1996. Kurt Cobain was also a known fan of the extraterrestrial life.
"When I was 17, I won a ‘Triple J’ comp and went on tour. The Foo Fighters, Sonic Youth, Rancid, Beastie Boys, and Pavement were all on the tour (1995.) The Foo Fighters tour manager took us under his wing and let us seek refuge in the Foo Fighter’s air conditioned dressing room."
“In Utero was the first time I’d made an album that reached into the dark side. I remember the conflict, and the uncertainty. I remember all those things when I hear Pennyroyal Tea, after Kurt died, that summer, I went to see Lollapalooza in Detroit. Nobody ever recognised me back then, and I was sitting in this massive amphitheater waiting for the next band to go on, in the middle of 30,000 people, and All Apologies came over the PA. The entire audience started singing along, and I started crying because it wasn’t that long ago that we had lost Kurt and that album had such an emotional impact on me. It’s still hard to listen to it. I can appreciate Steve Albini’s recording and the musicianship, but overall it kinda breaks my heart that was the last album we made, because I think there were more in us.” - Dave Grohl, 2013.

Interviewer: "Foo Fighters are supposed to be on hiatus but you’re working harder than ever. Can you ever imagine retiring?”
Dave Grohl: "Retiring? You should see the house I have to make payments on! No, look, I’ve had jobs. I’ve had shitty jobs: manual labour, pizza restaurants, fucking.record stores, whatever. This is not a job. I’ve already retired. I retired the fucking day that ‘Nevermind’ went gold. The thing is, I get all these amazing opportunities and you’d be crazy not to take them."
Someone came up with the idea of doing a Nirvana song with PJ Harvey. Kurt loved her and we love her and we thought, ‘Yeah, what would we do?’ I said: ‘God, what if we were to do ‘Milk It’ from ‘In Utero’ with Polly singing?’ We all looked at each other like, ‘Woah, that would be amazing…’ and then she couldn’t do it!”
