Foo Fighters are an American rock band formed in Seattle in 1994, founded by Nirvana drummer Dave Grohl. Prior to the release of Foo Fighters’ 1995 self titled debut album, which featured Grohl as the only official member, Grohl recruited bassist Nate Mendel and drummer William Goldsmith as well as guitarist Pat Smear to complete the lineup. Goldsmith quit during the recording of the group’s second album, The Colour and the Shape in 1997, when most of the drum parts were pre-recorded by Grohl himself. Smear’s departure followed soon afterward, though he would rejoin them in 2005. They were replaced by Taylor Hawkins and Franz Stahl, respectively, although Stahl was fired before the recording of the group’s third album There Is Nothing Left to Lose in 1999. The band briefly continued as a trio until Chris Shiflett joined as the band’s lead guitarist. The band released its fourth album One by One in 2002. The group followed that release with the two disc In Your Honor in 2005 which was split between acoustic songs and heavier material. Foo Fighters released their sixth album, Echoes, Silence, Patience & Grace, in 2007. The band’s seventh studio album, Wasting Light, produced by Butch Vig was released in 2011, in which Smear returned as a full member. In November 2014, the band’s eighth studio album, Sonic Highways, was released as an accompanying soundtrack to the Grohl directed 2014 miniseries of the same name. Over the course of the band’s career, four of its albums have won Grammy Awards for Best Rock Album. As of 2015 the band’s eight albums have sold 12 million copies in the US alone.
