** Dave Grohl. In fact, the first album was [[IAmTheBand made completely by him]], with the help of a producer and only the guitar part in "X-Static" played by another musician (Greg Dulli of the Afghan Whigs).

** 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 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 on his own anyway, given his various abilities. * BrokenBase: After the band refused to let their songs be featured on ''Series/{{Glee}}'', their fandom experienced mild turmoil over whether or not it was a good thing. ** Not that it particularly bothered Taylor Hawkins, for example, whose response to Glee in general was [[CrowningMomentOfFunny "Fuck that shit."]]

** Whilst they sell many records and play arenas in their native US, their popularity there is nothing compared to that in the UK, where in recent years they have sold out massive outdoor shows in minutes, months in advance. By Dave's own admission, the UK treats them like they are "the biggest band in the world", and while he can walk around cities like Los Angeles largely unrecognized, he gets mobbed on the streets in the UK. ** This also applies to the song 'Wheels' according to Dave who has mentioned on several occasions that apparently Germany is the only country where they can play the song with the crowd singing along. While most American crowds tend to be bored and most Asian crowds not to be bothered with it. ** Their reputation in America has a tendency to be "That one band the drummer of {{Music/Nirvana}} made." with a certain group of people. This isn't to say that a lot of people know them on their own, but several people basically think of them this way.

* SongAssociation: "Everlong" is a great song, but some us who have played ''RockBand 2'' may be sick of it, and think about how much we have played it.

* CoveredUp: The band's cover of Music/GerryRafferty's "Baker Street" early in their career is the closest they have come. The original is iconic for its saxophone solo. The band simply converted the melody into guitar. The cover isn't that well known to have completely replaced the original however.

** Though it has to be said, Taylor Hawkins is almost as popular as Grohl now. This is evident in the crowd reaction for him, when introducing band members, Grohl only has to say 'the drummer' and the crowd noise will drown out anything else he says.

** Deliberately invoked by "Exhausted," the last track of the debut album. Dave ended the song with a slow fadeout over a repetitive riff intending for the riff to keep going in the listener's head.
