Foo Fighters is an American rock band, formed in Seattle in 1994. It was founded by Nirvana drummer Dave Grohl as a one-man project following the death of Kurt Cobain and the resulting dissolution of his previous band. The group got its name from the UFOs and various aerial phenomena that were reported by Allied aircraft pilots in World War II, which were known collectively as foo fighters. Prior to the release of Foo Fighters' 1995 debut album Foo Fighters, which featured Grohl as the only official member, Grohl recruited bassist Nate Mendel and drummer William Goldsmith, both formerly of Sunny Day Real Estate, as well as fellow Nirvana touring bandmate Pat Smear as guitarist to complete the lineup. The band began with performances in Portland, Oregon. Goldsmith quit during the recording of the group's second album, The Colour and the Shape (1997) when most of the drum parts were re-recorded by Grohl himself. Smear's departure followed soon afterward.

New Foo Fighters video: ‘Wheels’

Thu, Oct 1, 2009


A totally unremarkable video for a totally mediocre song, maybe even subpar. I understand compiling a Greatest Hits record for the cheese and all, but did you guys really had to go round writing crap too? Oh, well, I’m pretty sure I’ll forget it by tomorrow. Good thing Grohl’s back in the kit, where he […]

Foo Fighters ‘nicest band ever’

Thu, Mar 20, 2008


Well this most definetly isn’t a title your average rock band will fight for and I’m not sure it’s something you should take pride in. You don’t wanna fall into the trap of becoming all mushy and stuff. So how come they beat Coldplay to get this title? To get the answet to that, you […]
