The original idea was just to record a few songs he had built up during his time in Nirvana.

Throughout those four years, Dave Grohl had long been intimidated by the singular songwriting ability of Kurt Cobain and mostly kept his own songs to himself. But after Cobain died in 1994, he turned down offers to drum for other high-profile bands (like Tom Petty and the Heartbreakers) to instead carve his own path. He recorded Foo Fighters' self-titled 1995 debut by himself in less than a week and could never have foreseen how much it would change everything ... not only for him, but for the entirety of the rock world.

In this installment of Worst to First, we take a look back at all eight of the albums Foo Fighters have released during their first two decades and rank them (check it out in the gallery above). While your list might not match up perfectly with ours, let's all at least agree there's never been any such thing as a bad Foo Fighters record.
