Dave Grohl: 15 Things You Didn’t Know (Part 1)


You might know Dave Grohl as the frontman of Foo Fighters, but there is so much more than meets the eye. The 46-year-old may have been around the block a few times, but he shows no signs of slowing down anytime soon. However, despite the fact that Grohl has spent a considerable amount of time in the spotlight and under the scrutiny of the public eye, there are still some things that many people don’t know. With that in mind, here we present our list of 15 things you probably didn’t know about Dave Grohl. Check out part one below, and stay tuned for part two, coming soon!

Number Fifteen: He Was Vice President in High School. Grohl was Vice President of his class during his freshman year of high school. As Vice President, he would play music by Bad Brains and Circle Jerks over the intercom before making the morning announcements.

Number Fourteen: He Still Can’t Listen to Nirvana. Grohl has said that listening to Nirvana brings up too many memories for him. He says that when he listens to them, “I immediately remember what it was like the day we recorded – the food or the f***ing snowstorm. It’s like opening a box of old pictures and I don’t like to do that too often.”

Number Thirteen: He Is Not a Fan of Japanese Porn. Grohl has said that Japanese porn freaks him out because “it doesn’t look like anyone is enjoying what they’re doing.”

Number Twelve: He Named His Children After Other Relatives. Two of Grohl’s three daughters are named after his relatives. He named his daughter Violet Maye after his grandmother, and his other daughter named Harper Willow was named after his great uncle.

Number Eleven: He Has a Lot of Energy. Grohl has described himself as a “hyperactive child” and says that he has trouble sleeping at night because he is always thinking of what’s coming next. We’re guessing that’s probably good if you’re in the music industry!

Number Ten: He Loves English Culture. Specifically, Grohl is a huge fan of the food in London. He says that he really enjoys “bangers and beans,” and he has even said that he could eat it “seven times a day for the rest of my life.”

Number Nine: He Doesn’t See Himself as a Sex Symbol. Grohl has said that he doesn’t think women view him as some sort of hunk like Fabio, and he’s perfectly fine with that.
