Foo Fighters aren’t just celebrating frontman Dave Grohl’s 51st birthday, they’re also observing the band’s 25th anniversary in a low-key post to fans.
“Holy Shit!!! 25 years?! Thank You guys for being with us year after year…for singing along & making every show the best night of our lives,” the band posted on social media.
(I was joking about the low-key bit)
The post continued: “We’re JUST getting started, so Buckle up, 2020… it’s going to be an INSANE year full of some seriously crazy shit.”

The posts from fans were just as sentimentally high-octane.

In 1995, Foo Fighters released their self-titled debut album — at the time, Grohl had written and recorded the entire album solo. Initially, Grohl made the record to recover following the death of Nirvana’s Kurt Cobain. And the rest is history.
The album went on to be certified Platinum selling more than 1.4 million copies in the US alone and became the band’s second best-selling album.
While Foo Fighters have yet to announce their next album, the band has been keeping fans updated on the recording process. Last week, they teased some new music in short videos that had fans begging for more…

The band did end 2019 by gifting fans with a six-song EP, 00979725, while we await a new full-length.
