Named after a 1950s term for UFO sightings, the Foo Fighters formed in 1994 around former Nirvana drummer Dave Grohl. The Seattle-born rock group was originally a one-man project, giving Grohl an outlet for his thumping drums - and also a place for the musician to experiment with bringing his rhythmic approach to the guitar.
Through 25 years and nine studio albums, the Foo have kept the grungy alt-rock love alive and it doesn’t appear that the group has any plans to slow down. In October 2019, it was announced that plans are underway for the recording of their tenth studio album, based on demos already laid down by Grohl himself.
