* HumiliationConga: The video for [[https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=4PkcfQtibmU "Walk"]] can be reasonably described as "Dave Grohl and the Terrible, Horrible, No Good, Very Bad Day". He gets stuck dead in traffic on the way to practice, gets flipped off by a probably eight-year-old kid in the car in front of him, his phone battery dies, the convenience store clerk refuses to give him change so he can use a pay phone (that has been removed), his fast food burger is pathetic compared to its picture, he steps in dog crap, gets mugged, gets hit by a golf ball when he cuts across a golf course, then gets arrested by a SWATTeam at practice for his various "road rage" incidents in reaction to the above, tazed, and hauled off.

* BreakupBreakout: The death of Kurt Cobain and Nirvana was the catalyst for Dave to move out from the drums, and start the Foo Fighters as a one-man project. He is much more well known now than he was when he was "just" the drummer for Nirvana, but he is still nowhere near as famous as Cobain is.

* BreakupBreakout: The death After all this time, it's easy to forget that Dave was once a member of Kurt Cobain and [[Music/{{Nirvana}} one of the most important bands in history.]]
** It should be noted, however, that the
Nirvana B Side "Marigold" was a Grohl composition that featured him on vocals, Grohl had already written and demoed most of the catalyst for Dave to move first album songs in 1992, and he had also released a self-released cassette album called "Pocketwatch" by Late!. However, these would have been of minimal interest beyond the most obsessive member, but if Nirvana had stayed, it's possible Grohl might have broken out from the drums, and start the Foo Fighters as a one-man project. He is much more well known now than he was when he was "just" the drummer for Nirvana, but he is still nowhere near as famous as Cobain is. on his own anyway, given his various abilities.

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).
