Foo Fighters are a band from Seatle that was founded by Dave Grohl after the suicide of Kurt Cobain – I am sure you knew that already. With Grohl being such a talented musician – and not only “Nirvana’s drummer” – the Foo Fighters have become one of the greatest bands of all time. No doubt.

The band has been around for quite some time and have released quite a few studio albums (we are not going to spoil any answers here) and EPs. If you don’t remember all the songs – I am sure you will remember their awesome (and funny) music videos.
