Foo Fighters’ Debut Album Turns 25

After the death of Kurt Cobain, Dave Grohl called up his friend Barrett Jones for some studio time. Claiming that he started recording “just for fun”, Grohl wrote and produced an entire album on his own, hiding the project behind a new name to protect its identity. It was a cathartic experience to try and recover from the passing of his friend and band mate, but from the ashes rose a phoenix. Foo Fighters’ debut album was born, released July 4th, 1995.

In an article by Linda Laban of Variety, producer Barrett Jones goes over the five day span of recording. It was an album that would go on to sell 1.5 million copies and become yet another grunge icon, soon to make Foo Fighters a household name.
