The Foo Fighters hadn't even been formed when I was in high school. They were still Nirvana back then, and I covered my pocket folders with their lyrics.Thanks for making me feel old, Mat.

Foo Fighters and Nirvana aren't THAT distantly separated, time-wise... Kurt killed himself in 94, and Foo Fighters hit the stage in 95.

Actually, the Foo Fighters and Nirvana are not the same band, they werent known as Nirvana before they became the Foo Fighters. Dave Grohl is the only member from Nirvana, and he alone created the Foo Fighters. during his time with Nirvana, he wrote about 40 songs which he eventually recorded 15 for his debut album. on that album, Dave Grohl recorded the 15 songs by himself playing every instrument and every vocal except for the guitar on X-Static. the only other member from Nirvana was Pat Smear, which was a second touring guitarist for Nirvana.

@incomingWho said they WERE the same band?

Ok, I should have said, "Grohl was still in Nirvana back then." I thought a guitarist from Nirvana was in Foo Fighters, too. Well, Smear kinda was, but not as much as I thought.I've always been bad at remembering band member names, unless they're lead vocals. :P

Oh. I didn't even read into it that you might have actually thought that they were the same band. I just assumed it was a Dave Grohl reference.Krist Novoselic was originally considering joining Foo Fighters, but he and Dave thought it might be weird for the rest of the band, so they decided against it.
