Formed by former Nirvana
drummer Dave Grohl, the Foo Fighters continued that historic band's knack for producing hit songs. Where he played drums in Nirvana, Grohl took the lead vocals and guitar in the Foo Fighters. Other band members include Taylor Hawkins (Drums, Percussion), Nate Mendel (Bass) and Chris Shiflett (Guitar, Backing Vocals). Foo Fighters proved to be a fantastic band in its own right, with hits like "I'll Stick Around", "Everlong", "Monkey Wrench" and "My Hero".
