* BewareTheNiceOnes: Dave has a well deserved reputation as the "nicest guy in rock", but if you come to his show and try and start a fight, he will [[https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=FR530bo4ceU lose his shit with you]] as one jerk found out.


* CoolOldGuy: While not exactly "old" yet, now that he's reached his 50s (he's currently 51), he's certainly on his way to being this, thanks to his "nicest guy in rock" reputation and that he's showing no signs of slowing down anytime soon.

Added DiffLines:

* SelfDeprecation: He has always downplayed his drumming abilities, claiming in one interview that "I sit down and do an {{Music/ACDC}} beat." But as Probot proved, while he may not be overly gifted technically, he's certainly more than talented, able to play in the styles of the drummers of the bands from each singer he worked with.

* AllDrummersAreAnimals: Is well known for behaving like, well, Animal from ''Series/TheMuppetShow'' when he drums. To the point where he and Animal himself have a [[https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=KHU_3Bw72y4 drum-off.]] Ironically, Grohl has always claimed that his drumming ability is nothing special, even saying that Foo Fighters Taylor Hawkins is far more talented than he is. It's thought that a lot of the attention given to Grohl's playing in Nirvana came from the fact that it was the first time the vast majority of people heard hardcore-style drumming.

Having spent his teenage years in hard-working but little known hardcore punk bands, Grohl's first exposure to popular attention in the world of music was as the (last of several) drummer for Nirvana, one of the most influential bands of TheNineties. However, Nirvana disbanded after the death of frontman Music/KurtCobain. Grohl, knowing his perception in the public's mind as [[OvershadowedByAwesome just another drummer]], decided to start his own band, Foo Fighters, and is the creative force behind their output; almost every single noise on their first album was him, whether it was made by drums, guitar, bass or voice. He did not intend Music/FooFighters to be a long term project and is on record stating that if he'd known it was going to last, he'd have chosen a better name. Nonetheless, the sub-optimally named band is still going strong after two decades. But Dave Grohl is also ''very'' busy with other stuff as well; while the discography below is somewhat exaggerated, it's not joking about how much he's in demand. Certain snarkers have even joked that the ''VideoGame/RockBand'' video games should be retitled "Dave Grohl Band," considering that he is or has been involved in at least ''six'' of the contributing acts (Nirvana, Foo Fighters, Queens of the Stone Age, Them Crooked Vultures, Nine Inch Nails, Tenacious D), which is more than basically everyone else on the planet. In fact, ''Rock Band 3'' has [[AscendedMeme an achievement with that very name]], which you get by beating three songs on whose recording Grohl was involved.

* NatureMetal: Dave Grohl's heavy metal side project Probot has "Silent Spring", with lyrics and vocals by Kurt Brecht of punk/thrash outfit D.R.I. It's essentially a protest song ("That's not the way that I am / No") against runaway consumerism, pollution, war, and the defilement of a vividly anthropomorphized Mother Earth.


Having spent his teenage years in hard working but little known hardcore punk bands, Grohl's first exposure to popular attention in the world of music was as the (last of several) drummer for Nirvana, one of the most influential bands of TheNineties. However, Nirvana disbanded after the death of frontman Music/KurtCobain. Grohl, knowing his perception in the public's mind as [[OvershadowedByAwesome just another drummer]], decided to start his own band, Foo Fighters, and is the creative force behind their output; almost every single noise on their first album was him, whether it was made by drums, guitar, bass or voice. He did not intend Music/FooFighters to be a long term project and is on record stating that if he'd known it was going to last, he'd have chosen a better name. Nonetheless, the sub-optimally named band is still going strong after two decades. But Dave Grohl is also ''very'' busy with other stuff as well; while the discography below is somewhat exaggerated, it's not joking about how much he's in demand. Certain snarkers have even joked that the ''VideoGame/RockBand'' video games should be retitled "Dave Grohl Band," considering that he is or has been involved in at least ''six'' of the contributing acts (Nirvana, Foo Fighters, Queens of the Stone Age, Them Crooked Vultures, Nine Inch Nails, Tenacious D), which is more than basically everyone else on the planet. In fact, ''Rock Band 3'' has [[AscendedMeme an achievement with that very name]], which you get by beating three songs on whose recording Grohl was involved.
