Rising from the ashes of tragically ended grunge icons Nirvana, Foo Fighters began their journey to the center of the rock ‘n’ roll universe in the year of 1994. Led by Nirvana’s drummer Dave Grohl on guitar and vocals, the band went against the odds and transformed from one titanic rock act into another.
Initially known as 606 and The Holy Shits, the group ultimately changed their name to Foo Fighters, after the aerial UFO phenomena reported by various army pilots in World War II.
The band’s self-titled debut album was released in 1995, featuring Grohl as the only member of the group, meaning that the legendary Foos were in fact a one-man act for a while. Soon enough, Dave recruited bassist Dave Mendel, drummer William Goldsmith, and former second Nirvana guitarist Pat Smear.
In 1997, Foo Fighters presented their sophomore album “The Color and the Shape.” In amidst of the recording process, Goldsmith was replaced by drummer Taylor Hawkins, and Franz Stahl came in as the second guitarist, although he didn’t last long. More importantly, the album featured the band’s major hit “My Hero,” ultimately selling over a million units in the States alone.
Led by another major single, “Learn to Fly,” (and featuring the infamous gang known as Tenacious D in the video) the group’s third studio album, “There Is Nothing Left to Lose,” saw its release in November 1999. Once again moving over a million units, the record established Grohl and co. as a force not to be reckoned with.
Apart from quality music, the band reached fans around the globe through Dave’s playful personality. Mr. Grohl became an epitome of awesomeness and a down-to-earth rockstar, only garnering the band more audience.
A big leap was made in 2002 with the Foos’ fourthe studio effort “One By One.” Selling over two million copies around the globe, the album owes a great deal of its success to lead single “All My Life,” as well as a follow-up single tune “Times Like These.” Two years before the album was dropped, Chris Shiflett joined the band on the position of a second guitarist.
The band was now fully established as a global tour de force thanks to catchy tunes, a proper attitude and funny, engaging videos. Album No. 5, “In Your Honor,” was unveiled in June 2005 following the release of lead single “Best of You.” Global tours, sold-out arenas, the deal was already closed.
2007’s “Echoes, Silence, Patience & Grace” delivered arguably the band’s biggest hit to date, the full-blown rock-out tune called “The Pretender,” while 2011’s “Wasting Light” marked the return of Pat Smear, making the Foos a three-guitar act.
The band presented its most ambitious effort, “Sonic Highways,” in 2014 by recording the album across eight different cities in the US, picking up the vibe and special guest appearances on every stop. The Foos are constantly growing and reinventing themselves, and sold-out concerts across major global venues, along with over 11 million albums sold around the globe, serve as a testament of their dedication and musical prowess. They make you rock, they make you think, they make you “learn to love again.”
