About this movie

A true chronicling of the triumphs and tragedies of the band's 16 year history. BACK AND FORTH chronicles Foo Fighters' entire existence: from Dave Grohl's cassette demos, to the band forming to play those songs to their ascent, to becoming one of the biggest rock bands on the planet - and every Grammy win and sold out show along the way. FOO FIGHTERS BACK AND FORTH features Grohl, Taylor Hawkins, Nate Mendel, Chris Shiflett and Pat Smear recalling every stage of the band's existence more candidly and intimately than ever before culminating in a behind the scenes look at the direct-to-analog tape sessions in Grohl's garage that produced the new album, "Wasting Light."

Documentary chronicling how Dave Grohl's demo tapes kickstarted a rock revolution after Kurt Cobain's suicide ended Nirvana's run, and includes a Behind-the-Scenes look at the making of their multi-Grammy winning album "Wasting Light". This documentary won the Grammy for "Best Long Form Music Video". This is a must-see for any Foo Fighters fan.

You're all a joke. To say Foo Fighters suck just show what lack of musical knowledge you have. If you expect every album to be the best thing you've ever heard, then you set expectations too high. Wasting Light is a great album, not the best of all time, but far better than anything Nickelback could do on their best day. Quit hating just for the sake of it, and be glad there are bands like Foo left. Soon there wont be.

A really great documentary about the history of the band from there very first days to were they are now. All I can say about the people leaving crappy comments about the band are probably jealous of the success of the band or there courtney love fans...!! Either way there comments mean nothing...!!! Great documentary check it out.
