  Pat Smear - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia
Pat Smear (born Georg Ruthenberg on August 5, 1959), is a U.S. rock guitarist who has been a regular member of several well-known bands, albeit of different subgenres: The Germs, Nirvana and Foo Fighters.
Smear renamed himself after learning about pap smears in high school, claiming they were the most disgusting thing he had ever heard of.
Smear joined the group from its inception, but because the band's first album was a collection of demos recorded solely by Grohl, he wouldn't appear on a Foo Fighters album until 1997's The Colour and the Shape.

 TrouserPress.com :: Pat RuthenSmear
Showcasing instrumental skill and scenery-chewing vocal stylings, Smear flips the idiosyncratic tracks towards Redd Kross giddiness, acoustic restraint, dance thwack, experimental nonsense and whatever else comes into his studio-bound head.
His singing is far more assured and presentable — his explosive yells give the record a bit of Hole's melodrama and suggest a stylistic affinity with Nirvana.
Still, Smear's goofy enthusiasm, cool playing and the whole thing's casual, underproduced quality give it a crummy, ass-backwards sort of charm.

This is a great quote – it sounds like the instructions issued by the High Command of the Smear Pat Brigade to their servitors in the media.
