Probot is a musical project by former Nirvana drummer and current Foo Fighters lead-singer Dave Grohl.


On the album, Grohl teamed up with heavy metal vocalists from 1980s and 1990s metal bands who influenced his musical tastes while he was growing up. Similar to 1995's "Foo Fighters", Grohl wrote all of the music and performed most of the instrumentation.

Each track on the album features a different lead singer including Lemmy, Max Cavalera and King Diamond. Some of the singers who contributed to the album did not work directly with Grohl; instead, the tapes were shipped from studio to studio until the album was finished. Grohl approached death metal legend Chuck Schuldiner of Death, who was at the time battling brain cancer, to contribute to the project, and even campaigned to raise funds to help Schuldiner pay his medical bills, but Schuldiner succumbed to the disease before any collaboration could happen.Fact|date=March 2007

Grohl also attempted to get Slayer's lead singer Tom Araya on the album, but he was unable to due to scheduling conflicts. [ [ "Dave Grohl Explains Tom Araya's Absence From Probot CD"] Jan. 11, 2004]

hake Your Blood

The video for the lead single, "Shake Your Blood," features an appearance by 66 women from the SuicideGirls adult entertainment website. In the video, the band is represented with Dave Grohl on drums, Lemmy on lead vocals and bass, and Wino (who sang on the Probot track "The Emerald Law") on lead guitar. The video of "Shake Your Blood" is ranking #2 in the list of the best metal videos of the new millennium in a vote carried out by MTV2.

Guest appearances

Soundgarden guitarist Kim Thayil plays additional guitar on "Ice Cold Man" and "Sweet Dreams". A few minutes before track 11 ends, at 8:56, a hidden track begins, sung by comedian/actor/musician Jack Black. The album artwork was created by musician Away (Michel Langevin) of Voivod.

Live performances

The Foo Fighters performed 'Shake Your Blood' live with Lemmy at their 2006 Hyde Park (UK) show. "My Tortured Soul" was performed live on MTV's Headbangers' Ball in 2004, with Eric Wagner on lead vocals, Dave Grohl on drums, Wino on lead guitar, Greg Anderson (of Goatsnake and Sunn O))))) on rhythm guitar and Foo Fighters producer Nick Raskulinecz on bass guitar. This performance is available on the compilation album "MTV2 Headbangers Ball, Vol. 2".
