Nirvana’s second studio album, Nevermind (1991), was the first to present Grohl on drums and became a worldwide success.

After the disbandment of band Nirvana following the death of lead singer Kurt Cobain in April 1994, Grohl created Foo Fighters as a one-man project. In 1995, the first Foo Fighters album got released, and it set a full band up to tour and record under the Foo Fighters’ name.

Since becoming a full band, Grohl has been the main singer, songwriter, and rhythm guitarist for the band. He also has played drums on several of their songs and albums, and the band has successfully released ten studio albums.

He is the drummer and co-founder of the rock supergroup Them Crooked Vultures (2009) and has recorded and toured with Queens of the Stone Age (1996). He has also taken part in side-projects called Late! and Probot and began directing Foo Fighters’ music videos in 1997.
