Editors’ Notes

After Kurt Cobain's suicide, no one expected much from Nirvana drummer Dave Grohl, including Dave Grohl. Entering the studio on a lark, he wrote and performed every note on Foo Fighters save for one guitar solo (that'd be Greg Dulli on "X-tatic"). Grohl then produced 100 cassettes and gave them away, figuring that would be that. Such were the humble beginnings of Foo Fighters. The first three tracks here were radio staples and quickly established the Foos' range: "This Is the Call" is hard-charging rock, and "Big Me" is so sunny it could be mistaken for a Beach Boys tune. "Floaty" is epic post-hardcore, while "For All the Cows" is sleazy bar rock.

Customer Reviews

The Classic Foo

This album is incredible,especially considering the band hadn't actually been formed yet.


This album is just great Dave did the whole dang thing by himself as a solo project! The only song that wasnt completely him was x-static. Screw who ever hates on this it's awesome! There's like 6 amazing songs and the rest rock like any other foo song:)


By far the best Foo Fighters album. Every other album has songs that sound exactly the same and all of the major hit pop songs are just Dave trying to be Kurt Cobain screaming into the mic and trying to pull off a big time rock ballad. Every thing here though is sincere and well done (even more impressive considering it was only Dave except for X-static). The one song I could see not being on here is Weenie Beenie. The highlights are This Is A Call, radio hits I'll Stick Around and Big Me, and the end song, Exhausted. Buy this album, it really is a must have for any rock fan.


Formed: 1995 in Seattle, WA

Years Active: '90s, '00s, '10s

When Foo Fighters released a debut album written and recorded entirely by leader Dave Grohl -- at that point known only as the powerhouse drummer for Nirvana -- in the summer of 1995, few would have guessed that the group would wind up as the one band to survive the '90s alt-rock explosion unscathed. Other bands burned brighter but they flamed out, breaking up after scoring a hit or two, while the Foos steadily racked up success after success, filling stadiums around the world while staying on top...
