When Nirvana drummer Dave Grohl recorded and released the solo album Foo Fighters in 1994 after Kurt Cobain's tragic death, many doubted he could step out of the shadow of his former band. Grohl would prove the naysayers wrong, with the album immediately charting in the US. Grohl recruited musicians to take the album on tour and the now-legendary Foo Fighters were born. Many mistakenly believe this was the start of Grohl's solo songwriting career, but Foo Fighters devotees know Grohl wrote "Marigold", the B-side to Nirvana's "Heart-Shaped Box", in 1992. The single became a popular part of Foos live sets, featuring on the 2006 live album Skin and Bones, and is renowned amongst hardcore fans of both Nirvana and the Foo Fighters for being the only track to be released by both bands.

Although "Marigold" forms a part of the Foos' stage shows, fans of Nirvana may be disappointed that the Foos rarely, if ever, play Nirvana tracks on tour. Grohl says the music is "hallowed ground", and explained: "There's a reason why the Foo Fighters don't blast out Nirvana songs every night - because we have a lot of respect for them. We have to be careful. We have to tread lightly. We have talked about it before, but the opportunity hasn't really come up, or it just hasn't felt right."

Post-Nirvana and hot on the heels of the success of the debut Foo Fighters album, albums such as The Colour and the Shape (CD | vinyl) and There is Nothing Left to Lose (CD) gave rise to Foos anthems "Everlong" and "Learn To Fly". After Echoes, Silence, Patience and Grace (CD | vinyl) dominated the 2008 Brit Awards and Grammys, Grohl announced a ten-year hiatus for Foo Fighters - but fans didn't have to wait that long. In 2011, they returned with the hugely successful album Wasting Light (CD | vinyl) and the documentary Back And Forth (DVD). Today, the sell-out tours continue, the Grammys continue pile up and the Foo Fighters' devoted fan base carry on rocking out to their amp-blasting hits. The Foo Fighters are here to stay, and, as Dave Grohl himself said: "People should never be afraid that Foo Fighters are ever going to break up, it's like your grandparents getting divorced - it's not gonna happen."
