Seether are a "post-grunge" band from South Africa. "Post-grunge" just seems to mean the type of radio-friendly grunge that was everywhere in the '90s. Seether supposedly named themselves after the Veruca Salt song "Seether," which is both baffling and illuminating.

Genres must be judged on their terms. Just as we have with recent country and latin-pop charts, this week we grade Billboard's top 10 rock songs. The '90s are owning! The top three songs are the Last Man Standing of rock: nostalgic, familiar, and unsurprisingly resilient.
1. Foo Fighters, "Walk"
This is a VERY generic Foo Fighters song. Those are Foo Fighting words but I can't get too excited about the ultra-compressed go-get-'em alt-rock crunch of this song because I've heard it so many times already before. It gets a lot better toward the end when Grohl starts screaming about how he never wants to die. Grade: B
