Since being formed in 1994 by former Nirvana drummer Dave Grohl, the band has produced hit single after single starting with “this is a call” on their self-titled debut album in 1995. Their second album would grab more attention with the credit of their singles “My Hero” and “Everlong”.
The band looked fragile during the recording of “There is Nothing Left to Lose” where they found themselves auditioning for a new guitarist, fortunately finding one and finishing the album. Despite having very little confidence in their next album “One By One” They managed to make two very good singles “Times like These” and “All My Life”. Capitalizing on their current success they released “In Your Honour” releasing one of their best known singles”Best of You” in the process. The Foo Fighters wasted very little time recording ”Echoes, Silence, Patience & Grace” One of my favourite Foo Albums.
The Foo Fighters entered a musical limbo afterword which left many fans shocked after releasing their greatest hits album in 2009 fans believed the era had ended.Earlier this year The Foo Fighters released their first number one album in the USA ”Wasting Light”. It’s clear that they are back on the rise and only getting better, this is what makes them the best rock band of the last 2 decades.
