The Foo Fighters rose from the ashes from iconic grunge band Nirvana to become one of the biggest rock and roll acts of the millennium. Frontman Dave Grohl, who was in various DC-area hardcore bands before becoming the drummer of Nirvana, formed the Foo Fighters in 1994. Grohl wrote and recorded the entire self-titled 1995 debut album before recruiting Nirvana guitarist Pat Smear and Sunny Day Real Estate members William Goldsmith and Nate Mendel for his touring band. Today, the Foo Fighters lineup has evolved to also include Taylor Hawkins on drums, Chris Shiflett on rhythm guitar and Rami Jaffee on keyboards. The band's nine studio albums have sold more than 12 million copies in the United States alone. If you have a chance to grab Foo Fighters tickets at StubHub, don't miss the opportunity. The band is known for its energetic live shows and its ability to combine heavy, driving guitar riffs with sing-along melodies.
Facing Down the Grunge Label
Although the Foo Fighters concerts were initially renowned for Grohl's association with Nirvana and the late Kurt Cobain, Grohl's songs draw from diverse musical influences, and the frontman openly strives to move beyond his 90s alternative rock roots. In the process, he has created a truly democratic rock band with anthems that appeal to the masses. Released in 1997, the band's second album, The Colour and the Shape, spawned four hit singles and led to a performance at England's Glastonbury Festival. The third Foo Fighters album, There Is Nothing Left to Lose resulted in the band's first appearance on the Billboard Hot 100 with "Learn to Fly."
