The American band Foo Fighters was founded by ex-Nirvana drummer Dave Grohl. The band’s name was borrowed from US Word War II pilots as they used to refer to bright unidentified flying objects detected in the sky as “foo fighters”. In 1995, the band recorded its debut album under the same name. Grohl himself authored most of the tracks and later, summing up his efforts, called the entire Foo Fighters album some sort of catharsis following the tragic death of Kurt Cobain.
