On this day - Foo Fighters released their debut album

On this date in 1995, July 4, the Foo Fighters released their debut album.
release via Capitol Records and Roswell. With the help of producer Barrett Jones, Dave Grohl composed and produced the entire album at Robert Lang Studios in Seattle, in 1994. He claimed that he made the album just for enjoyment and that it served as a therapeutic experience that helped him cope with the death of his bandmate from Nirvana, Kurt Cobain.

At the 1996 Grammy Awards presentation, the record was nominated for Best Alternative Music Album but fell short behind Nirvana's MTV Unplugged in New York.

The lone contribution from an outsider was a guitar solo by Greg Dulli of The Afghan Whigs on the song "X-Static," which was produced by Barrett Jones and Dave Grohl.

Foo Fighters was a commercial success upon release and received favourable reviews that praised the songs and musicianship. It also became the band's second-best-selling album in the US. Additionally, it reached its peak in the top five of the charts in the UK, Canada, Australia, and New Zealand.
