Dave Grohl started the Foo Fighters project as a result of the dissolution of Nirvana. He wrote and recorded the entire self-titled debut of himself, which was something he did to be released after the death of Kurt Cobain. It was commercially successful at release, selling 400,000 units in its first week and debuting at No. 23 on the Billboard 200.
When Grohl started her follow-up, he recruited some musicians to help, among others Pat Smear,, Nate Mendel and Taylor Hawkinsas all three became official members of the band. The color and shape debuted at No. 10 on the album chart, and it became clear that Foo Fighters was a machine meant to keep running.
The Foos have released eight more albums since then, most recently from 2021 Medicine at midnight. All of them also topped the top 10 on the list, two of which went to No. 1. They had a solid run selling out of stadiums and headline festivals throughout, until earlier in the year when Hawkins tragically died while the band was preparing to a performance in Colombia.
