Foo Fighters biography



From Nirvana to Foo Fighters, Dave Grohl is our time’s greatest rock star!

As Dave Grohl was touring with Nirvana, he spent much of his time recording demos. When Kurt tragically died and Nirvana was no more, Dave started his solo project Foo Fighters by recording his demos.

Dave recorded all instruments and vocals himself on his first album, spread it around the music business, formed a band to support the album, and got pickup up by Capitol.

Dave Grohl is one of the few true rock stars still active today who managed to be in two, generation-defining bands.


All My Life, Monkey Wrench & The Pretender

The opening track from Foo Fighters’ fourth studio album, One By One, All My Life was the most successful single, spending ten weeks at the top spot of the alternative charts.

By now, Foo Fighters and Dave Grohl had reached worldwide fame, with Nirvana being something he used to do, rather than his main thing.

A straight-ahead rocker from Foo Fighters’ second album, The Colour, and The Shape, Monkey Wrench was actually the lead single.

Two other singles featured from this album in Everlong and My Hero.

From the 2007 album Echoes, Silence and Grace, we find The Pretender. Easily the biggest song on the album, it cemented Dave Grohl’s superstardom.

On the 2009 Greatest Hits album, all these songs are featured.

All my life, I’ve been searching for something
Something never comes, never leads to nothing
Nothing satisfies but I’m getting close
Closer to the prize at the end of the rope

Monkey Wrench – Chords

B5 | B5 F#5 | E5 | E5 (D5) |
What have we done with innocence?
B5 | B5 F#5 | E5 | E5 (D5) |
It disappeared with time, it never made much sense.

What have we done with innocence?
It disappeared with time, it never made much sense
Adolescent resident
Wasting another night on planning my revenge
