Foo Fighters’ musical style has been considered as a combination of post-grunge, alternative rock, and hard rock. When Dave Grohl made the first steps of the band, his music was very similar to the one of his previous band, Nirvana. The greatest influence in his composing had Kurt Cobain, Nirvana’s singer and guitarist. Foo Fighters combined quiet stanzas with powerful choruses in their compositions, got the influences by the musical tastes of Nirvana and bands like Bay City Rollers, The Knack, ABBA, and Beatles. Dave was always saying: “I can hear the song in my head before I finish it.” When Grohl finally completed the band, his teammates collaborated on the arrangements for their songs.
