Foo Fighters is the eponymous debut studio album by American rock band of the same name, released on July 4, 1995 by Roswell and Capitol Records. Dave Grohl wrote and recorded the entire album himself, apart from a guest guitar spot by Greg Dulli, with the assistance of producer Barrett Jones at Robert Lang Studios in Seattle, Washington, in 1994. He claimed that he recorded the album just for fun, describing it as a cathartic experience to recover from the death of Nirvana bandmate Kurt Cobain.
After Grohl completed the recordings, he chose the name “Foo Fighters” for the project to hide his identity, and passed cassettes copies of the sessions to personal friends. When the tapes attracted record label interest, Grohl signed with Capitol and recruited a full band to perform the songs live. The album was promoted through extensive tours and six singles, two of which received music videos.
Upon its release, Foo Fighters earned positive reviews, praising its songwriting and performances, and was also a commercial success, becoming the band’s second-best-selling album in the United States. It also peaked within the top five of charts of United Kingdom, Canada, Australia, and New Zealand.
