Featured Article

The Foo Fighters is an American alternative rock band, originally formed in 1994 by Nirvana drummer Dave Grohl as a one-man project following the dissolution of his previous band. The band got its name from the UFOs and various aerial phenomena that were reported by Allied aircraft pilots in World War II, which were known collectively as foo fighters.

Prior to the release of the Foo Fighters' 1995 debut album Foo Fighters, which featured Grohl as the only official member, Grohl drafted complete the lineup. The band began with performances in Portland, Oregon before gaining popularity. Goldsmith left during the recording of the group's second album, The Color and the Shape (1997), and Smear's departure followed soon afterward. They were replaced by Taylor Hawkins and Franz Stahl, respecitvely, although Stahl left before the recording of the group's third album, There is Nothing Left to Lose (1999).
