These Seattle-based rockers have been dominating the alternative/grunge rock scene for over 25 years and continue to be one of the most in-demand bands today. Find out why people around the world can’t get enough of Foo Fighters.
Dave Grohl set out on a new musical direction in 1994 following the death of his former bandmate, Nirvana frontman Kurt Cobain. As a result, Grohl stepped into the spotlight as the founder and lead singer of the Foo Fighters. He started a new cultural phenomenon when he wrote and recorded all aspects of Foo Fighters’ eponymous debut album by himself and then recruited band members to complete the ensemble. The one-man project was wildly successful, landing within the Top 25 of the Billboard 200 chart and spawned hit singles “This Is a Call” and “I’ll Stick Around.”
Building on Grohl’s massive success with Nirvana, Foo Fighters quickly became the most talked-about grunge and alternative rock bands throughout the remainder of the 1990s. They achieved Platinum sales certification on singles “Everlong” and “Learn to Fly,” the latter of which became their first No. 1 song. They continue to produce new music with the current lineup of Grohl, guitarists Chris Shiflett and Pat Smear, bassist Nate Mendel, keyboardist Rami Jaffee and drummer Taylor Hawkins.
The Foo Fighters have performed in some of the world’s biggest venues around the world but remain particularly popular in their home town of Seattle. Their career accolades include multiple Grammys, Brit Awards, MTV Video Music Awards and American Music Awards.
The Foo Fighters have dominated rock radio waves with hits such as “Learn to Fly,” “Best of You,” “Everlong,” “The Pretender,” “Monkey Wrench,” “Let It Die,” “Walk,” “These Days,” and “The Sky Is a Neighborhood.”
The Foo Fighters were the final musical act to perform on The Late Show with David Letterman.
