VH1′s Latest Rock Doc, Foo Fighters: Back and Forth, Debuts Tonight


If you were to ask us to rattle off a list of some of the worst band names ever, it would probably be awhile before we got to the name Foo Fighters. Not Dave Grohl, though; according to him, “Honestly, had I taken this whole career thing seriously, I would’ve named it something else [besides Foo Fighters], because it’s the worst f*****g band name in the world!” This revelation, along with many more about the band’s tumltuous 16-year career (which has been filled with drug overdoses, creative in-fighting and a rotating lineup of musicians), are all presented, straight from the horse’s mouths, in the new documentary film, Foo Fighters: Back And Forth.

The film, directed by Academy Award winning documentary filmmaker James Moll, made its debut in front of a raucous audience at SXSW a few weeks ago, but you’ll be able to catch it in the comfort of your own living room on VH1 tonight at 10 p.m. ET/PT. The level of access that Moll got into the world of the Foos was unbelievable, and you’ll see each of the band members candidly discuss the pros and cons of being a member of a band that formed in the wake of Nirvana’s untimely collapse. If you’re a fan of rock music, this doc is DEFINITELY a must-see. Set your DVRs!
