Grohl decided to draft in a full band for live shows and for the second album, ''The Colour and the Shape''. Bassist Nate Mendel and drummer William Goldsmith came from cultly admired Music/{{emo}} {{trope codifier}}s Sunny Day Real Estate, while Pat Smear, a member of the Germs and the fourth member of Nirvana for its last few years, played guitar. Goldsmith left after the album was recorded, as Grohl had replaced most of Goldsmith's drums tracks with his own. Smear left shortly after the album was released. Replacements were found in AlanisMorissette ex-bandmember Taylor Hawkins on drums and Franz Stahl in place of Smear (who was himself replaced by Chris Shiflett after the release of their third album, ''There Is Nothing Left to Lose''; that album was recorded by Grohl, Mendel and Hawkins as a trio specifically because of the lineup instability).

The name is a reference to a term for unidentified flying objects sighted by pilots during WorldWarII[[note]] which in turn harkens back to "foo lights", a New England term referring to the glowing lights produced by swamp gas, and produced the metasyntactic variables foo and foobar[[/note]]. Grohl is on record as saying he hates the name, and would never have used it if he'd thought the band would get anywhere.

** "Long Road to Ruin" where the band members and [[TheOffice Rashida]] [[Series/ParksAndRecreation Jones]] play actors on a soap opera. It's quite funny.

Foo Fighters was originally a [[IAmTheBand one-man project]] started by Dave Grohl after the dissolution of Music/{{Nirvana}} (though he had [[http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Pocketwatch_%28album%29 written and recorded future Foo Fighters songs]] while still in the band), and he plays all the instruments on almost every song on the first, self-titled Foo Fighters album (why almost? Greg Dulli has a guitar part of "X-Static"). At first, Grohl hid behind the Foo Fighters name, preferring that people judge the album on its own merits rather than on Grohl's name or the fans' desire to fill the vacuum left by Nirvana. [[Music/PearlJam Eddie Vedder]] played a few songs on his radio show, and the positive response motivated Grohl to move forward.
