About this album

Foo Fighters is the debut album by the Foo Fighters, recorded entirely by frontman Dave Grohl. It was released in 1995 through Roswell and Capitol Records. It was nominated for Best Alternative Music Album at the 1996 Grammy ceremony, but it lost to Dave Grohl’s former band Nirvana’s album MTV Unplugged In New York. Dave Grohl has often called the Foo Fighters’ debut piece to be more of a demo than an album.

Nearly all of the album’s instrumental parts are performed by Dave Grohl. (The lone exception is a guitar part on “X-Static” provided by Afghan Whigs member Greg Dulli, with whom Grohl had performed as part of an all-star band on the 1994 Backbeat soundtrack.)

The Foo Fighters band, originally consisting of bassist Nate Mendel, guitarist Pat Smear, and drummer William Goldsmith, was formed by Grohl after the completion of the album in order to promote it on tour. Despite not appearing on the album itself, the band is featured in the liner notes and was paid royalties for the album.

Grohl had been recording his own music for years prior, releasing a cassette called Pocketwatch (under the moniker “Late!”) during his time in Nirvana. The album was recorded in October 1994 in Robert Lang’s Studio in Seattle with friend/producer Barrett Jones. This was the same studio where Nirvana recorded its last session just nine months prior.
