Foo Fighters Information Continued
Foo Fighters began as a studio solo project for Grohl while he was a member of the hugely popular group Nirvana. Unbeknownst to most of Nirvana's fanbase, Grohl had gradually written a stockpile of songs that he had held back from the band for fear of ruining their chemistry. However, Grohl didn't want the Foo Fighters to be a one-man studio project, so he worked to put together a band.
The band's first single "This Is a Call" was released in June of 1995, and their eponymous debut album was released the next month to enthusiastic fan response. "I'll Stick Around" and "Big Me" were released as singles in the months that followed.
One notable moment in the Foo Fighters' history came in 2000 when American late-night talk show host David Letterman invited the Foo Fighters to perform on his first show after undergoing heart bypass surgery, where the band played "Everlong". Letterman introduced them by proclaiming, "My favorite band, playing my favorite song".
Near the end of 2001, the Foo Fighters reconvened to record their fourth album. After spending four months in a Los Angeles studio completing the album, Grohl spent some time helping the Queens of the Stone Age complete their 2002 album Songs for the Deaf. Once the Queens of the Stone Age album was finished, Grohl, inspired by the sessions, decided to reconvene the Foo Fighters to rework a few songs on their album. The final album was released in October of 2002 under the title One by One.
The band's most recent album was a double LP, In Your Honor, released on June 14, 2005.
