Armed with a vast collection of songs composed by Grohl, Foo Fighters released their debut self-titled album in June 1995, where it found almost immediate success. Singles such as "I'll Stick Around," "For All the Cows," and "Big Me," helped the album climb the charts in both the US and UK, where it reached #23 and #3 respectively. While working on their second album, The Colour and the Shape, the band teamed up more collaboratively, taking Grohl's ideas and shaping them further.

To understand the history of Foo Fighters, it is necessary to go back to the days when Nirvana was still in full swing. The tale about how a drummer for one rock legend became the singer, guitarist, and frontman of another legend is one worth telling.

Admittedly intimidated by Nirvana frontman Kurt Cobain's skill, Grohl contented himself with making private recordings of his work which were then issued onto cassettes. After Cobain's death in 1994, Grohl turned down the chance to drum for Tom Petty and the Heartbreakers to instead pursue an unexpected path: he became the guitarist, singer, and songwriter of his own band. Recruiting the help of touring Nirvana guitarist Pat Smear, bassist Nate Mendel, drummer William Goldsmith, the band was ready. Donning the name Foo Fighters (named after WWII slang for UFOs), the band quickly gained momentum while playing live shows.

Frontman Brian Celi, with a dynamic new lineup in tow, proceeds to rail vehemently against an existence just long enough to succumb to heartbreak and bad decisions.
