Foo Fighters is a five-person, alternative rock band, fathered by former Nirvana drummer Dave Grohl and established in Seattle, Washington in 1994.

Members Dave Grohl, Chris Shiflett, Pat Smear, Nate Mendel, and Taylor Hawkins have been bringing their brand of hard rock to the world since the release of their debut album “Foo Fighters” in 1995. Several studio albums later and the band is still picking up fans from all across the globe.

The Foo Fighters’ alternative rock sound has been cultivated from the band’s love of various genres and other artists. They are as much influenced by Dave Grohl’s former band-mate Kurt Kobain’s, minimalist rock aesthetic as they are by the decadence of bands such as Queen and the melodic purity of bands like the Beatles.

Many of the band’s hit songs, such as “Everlong” and “The Pretender”, are distinctive for their melodic cores which balance out the harder edge of the Foo Fighters’ thrashing rock sound. Gentle verses lead into powerful, shredding choruses, which encapsulate the songs’ emotion.

The Foo Fighters have received a staggering 25 Grammy nominations over the past 18 years, and have managed to take home 11 awards, including four for Best Rock Album. Their success is not limited to the United States, though, as they have found themselves winners of accolades from all over the globe due to albums such as 2011’s “Wasting Light” debuting at number one in 12 countries.

The Foo Fighters have played to sold out crowds all over the world, managing to pack out small venues and huge arenas alike. In 2008 the band played two sold out shows at Wembley Stadium in London, England, each night rocking the world of 86,000 people. With more material on the way, the Foo Fighters’ hard earned success and popularity is not set to diminish any time soon.
