Foo Fighters are an American rock band, often labeled as alternative rock, hard rock and post-grunge. The band was formed by Dave Grohl after the dissolution of his former band Nirvana, but as opposed to his drumming duties in the former group, his main responsibility in the new group was songwriting and performing vocals and guitars.

Shortly after the death of Kurt Cobain and the end of Nirvana, Dave Grohl entered a studio by himself to record a bunch of songs he had written during the Nirvana tours. He then shopped the demo tape around to find new members to complete the group, which ended up comprising of the former Germs/Nirvana guitarist Pat Smear and the rhythm section of the recently disbanded indie group Sunny Day Real Estate: bassist Nate Mendel and drummer William Goldsmith. The self-recorded demo tape was of such high quality, that instead of re-recording the songs with

Foo Fighters, in it's earliest incarnation, was a Queens of the Stone Age-esque band from the US. Their first release was in 1995; an eponymous album bearing a laser-gun as it's cover which featured a single musician as it's one man band. Dave Grohl, who had played in the band Nirvana until the unfortunate death in April 1994, entered a state of depression. As a sort of pick-me-up to break out of his funk, he solely recorded an album and labeled the name under "Foo Fighters" in order to hide his identity. Later, he signed on a full band in order to play the songs live. Due to the commercial boom of the debut, Grohl kept his new band mates and continued with a very successful career.

The debut is very unlike the band's later material. Grohl obviously still found it hard to diversify himself from Nirvana so shortly after the death of Cobain, and his debut is obviously sounding like a Nirvana album. It doesn't do much in the way of innovation, being your everyday standard grunge/hard rock album, but to know it was recorded only by a man suffering from depression with very little help is impressive nonetheless. Unfortunately there isn't really that much to say about the album due to it's blissful yet blatant simplicity. However, an album being 'just for fun' means there wasn't too much effort to begin with. It is a very enjoyable album, and can be put on for any occasion. I'd say have fun, but at the same time indulge into the real Fighter's work as well. Sad Grohl did a good job.
