Foo Fighters

If you are looking for Foo Fighters chords, you came to the right place! This legendary American rock band was formed in Seattle, Washington, in 1994. Former drummer of grunge group Nirvana, Dave Grohl, who was born on Jan. 14, 1969, kept quiet for months following Kurt Cobain’s suicide but eventually decided to found the Foo Figthers.

Forming the band

What started out as a one-man project would soon become a worldwide success. Grohl recruited guitarist Pat Smear, who also used to be part of Nirvana, as well as former Sunny Day Real Estate members Nate Mendel (bass) and William Goldsmith (drums). In 1997, Goldsmith decided to quit the band while they were recording their second album The Colour and the Shape, as Grohl had decided to re-record most of the drum parts himself, which put a strain on the band members’ relationship. Shortly afterwards, Smear left as well. The two members were replaced by Taylor Hawkins and Franz Stahl, who got fired before the Foo Fighters recorded their third album There Is Nothing Left to Lose. (Interested to learn which chords the Foo Fighters used on their tracks that are on this album? You will find them below.) After that, the band continued as a trio for a brief period, before they were joined by guitarist Chris Shiflett. From 2006 on Smear occasionally appeared as a guest with the band, eventually re-joining as a full-time member in 2011. Today, the Foo Fighters consist of founder Dave Grohl (vocals and guitar), Nate Mendel (bass), Pat Smear (rhythm guitar), Taylor Hawkins (drums), Chris Shiflett (lead guitar) and Rami Jaffee (keyboardist).

Climbing the ladder of fame

Back when Grohl was still the drummer for Nirvana, the founding father of the Foo Fighters would put chords and lyrics together to play his own songs on his guitar. He didn’t share his songs with the rest of the band because he didn’t feel like they were good enough, as he once said he felt “in awe” and “intimidated” by frontman Kurt Cobain's songs. Grohl thought it was better to keep these songs under wraps. Later, in 1994, Grohl decided to form a band instead of pursuing a solo career. The Foo Fighters’ chords and tunes, characterized by heavy, melodic and loud-quiet sounds — reminiscent of Nirvana and The Pixies — resonated with a large audience and the band climbed the ladder of fame. Also, did you know that the group’s name is derived from the term “foo fighter,” a nickname that was used in World War II to describe UFOs. Over the course of their career, the Foo Fighters truly managed to achieve international recognition and were honored with Grammy Awards for best rock album for four of their albums.
