Former Nirvana Members Reunite On Upcoming Foo Fighters Album

Butch Vig, best known as the producer of Nirvana‘s Nevermind album and drummer of the band Garbage, recently discussed that he reunited ex-Nirvana members Dave Grohl and Krist Novoselic for a track on an upcoming Foo Fighters album. The track is titled “I Should Have Known,” and will be featured on the next album from Grohl’s band.

The new song sees Novoselic contribute both bass guitar and accordion (!!) to the track. Recording for the as-of-yet untitled album was completed at the beginning of this year, and is being held for a release during April.

Grohl and Novoselic first worked together in the band Nirvana, led by frontman Kurt Cobain. Their breakthrough album was Nevermind, released in 1991, and produced by Butch Vig. The release of the album would usher in a new attitude, sound, and feel for the hard rock/metal and punk community that would eventually be labeled as the “Grunge” genre by the media. During their career, Nirvana released songs such as “About a Girl,” “Smells like Teen Spirit,” and “All Apologies.”

After Cobain’s death in 1994, Grohl and Novoselic collaborated on two posthumous Nirvana releases (MTV Unplugged in New York and From the Muddy Banks of the Wishkah), but both went their separate ways. Grohl would eventually form Foo Fighters, migrating from the drum kit to the front as guitarist and vocalist, and has gone on to newer levels of success with the band.

Dave Grohl also released the more metallic Probot album, which features him collaborating with the likes of Lemmy from Motorhead and Cronos from Venom. Grohl’s work with Foo Fighters includes songs such as “Everlong,” “Times Like These,” and “My Hero.”

  1. I like how nothing is said about what Novoselic has done post Nirvana. Let’s slobber all over Dave Grohl and demonstrate how nice he is by throwing a bone to poor Novoselic who obviously can’t accomplish anything without his former bandmates. What a whitewash.
