Foo Fighters' Dave Grohl has claimed grunge music has never died in a Reddit fan AMA (Ask Me Anything).

The former Nirvana drummer was asked by a fan, who goes by the name of ConumdrumSteve on the community-based website, if "Grunge will ever make a comeback?"

To which Grohl replied:
If you mean loud ass guitars, loud ass drums, and screaming ass vocals? That never went away ding dong.

The Foo's front man took part in the Reddit fan AMA to promote his documentary on the legendary Sound City recording studios. The movie is available to watch now at soundcitymovie.com.

The film's soundtrack will come out on March 11, and will include the Paul McCartney-featuring track, 'Cut Me Some Slack' as well as many more from Grohl's Sound City Players band, which features members of Nirvana and Foo Fighters as well as Stevie Nicks, John Fogerty, Rick Springfield, Fear's Lee Ving, Cheap Trick's Rick Nielsen, Brad Wilk Of Rage Against The Machine, Alain Johannes, Chris Goss.

The band played their second gig at The Palladium in Hollywood recently (January 31), following their debut at the Sundance Film Festival in Utah. The epic Hollywood gig, which comprised 38 songs and lasted for three and half hours, followed the Los Angeles premiere of Sound City.

The Sound City Players will also play a one-off show at New York's Hammerstein Ballroom on Wednesday (February 13).
