The rock group Foo Fighters came together in Seattle in 1994. Dave Grohl, the drummer from Nirvana, started the group as a one-man project following the death of Nirvana frontman Kurt Cobain. The 1995 debut album Foo Fighters listed Grohl as the only official member. More members were formally added later. The group’s eighth studio album, Sonic Highways, came out in November 2014. By 2015, the Foo Fighters had sold more than 12 million albums in the United States alone. Four of their eight albums have won the Grammy Award for Best Rock Album.
