The band’s frontman recorded an initial tape version of the album almost entirely by himself “for fun” before record labels expressed interest in releasing it.
Speaking to Matt Wilkinson on Apple Music’s Beats 1, Grohl recalled the process of making the album.
He continued to reveal his favourite song from the album during those sessions, saying it was ‘Exhausted’.
“But that’s when the alarms went off where I’m like, ‘Oh man, maybe it should be a record.
Elsewhere, Grohl revealed who he would dedicate Foo Fighters’ debut album to if he were re-writing its liner notes today.
“It should be a lot of people, but I would dedicate it to Krist [Novoselic, Nirvana bassist] and Kurt [Cobain],” he said.
It was such an honour to be in that band and it was so devastating when it ended. »
