The discography of Dave Grohl, an American rock musician, multi-instrumentalist, singer, songwriter and record producer, consists of fifteen studio albums, six live albums, eight compilation albums, six EPs, four soundtracks and also includes his other collaborations and work as a studio musician with twenty-six additional artists. A large portion of his releases have come as the drummer of Nirvana (1990–1994) and as the frontman of Foo Fighters (1995–present).

Grohl began playing music in the 1980s and while attending high school in Alexandria, Virginia was a member of Freak Baby, whose name was later changed to Mission Impossible after Grohl switched from guitarist to drummer. The band recorded demos under both names and released a split EP with Lünch Meat, originally issued as Thanks (1986), later retitled Getting Shit for Growing Up Different.[1] After some lineup changes, Mission Impossible became Dain Bramage and released I Scream Not Coming Down (1986) before breaking up when Grohl auditioned for Scream and became the band's drummer.

As a member of Scream, Grohl released No More Censorship (1988), two live albums and the posthumous release, Fumble (1993), recorded shortly before the groups dissolution in 1990. Later that year, Grohl was put in contact with Kurt Cobain and Krist Novoselic who were in search of a new drummer for their band Nirvana. After a successful tryout, Grohl joined the band and recorded Nevermind (1991) with them the following year. The album became a breakthrough achievement and to date has sold over 30 million copies Worldwide.[2] In Utero (1993), their third and final studio album, was released just months prior to the death of Cobain. Since then, a multitude of posthumous releases featuring Grohl have been issued, including MTV Unplugged in New York (1994), From the Muddy Banks of the Wishkah (1996), With the Lights Out (2004) and Live at Reading (2009).

Throughout his tenure with Scream and Nirvana, Grohl worked on crafting material of his own. Using the pseudonym Late!, Grohl released the album Pocketwatch (1992), on which he performed all instruments and vocals. This recording method was adopted three years later with Foo Fighters (1995), another album performed entirely by Grohl. After acquiring band members to help support the release, Foo Fighters quickly transformed into a group fronted by Grohl. The band has gone on to release a total of seven studio albums and three EPs to date, in addition to the live album Skin and Bones (2006) and their career spanning Greatest Hits (2009). Foo Fighters have sold over 10 million albums in the United States alone and 30 million albums Worldwide.[3]

Grohl appeared as drummer of The Backbeat Band, who recorded music for the film Backbeat (1994). Although recorded in 1990, Harlingtox A.D. would mark Grohl's only appearance as bassist, with the release of Harlingtox Angel Divine (1996). He appeared for the first time as David Grohl, credited for the music to the film Touch (1997), which also included the resurrection of his former moniker Late! on select tracks. In 2000, Grohl began work on the heavy metal side project Probot (2004), writing and performing the majority of the music himself. While remaining active with Foo Fighters, Grohl has also contributed to an assortment of releases by other artists, ranging from solo acts such as Tony Iommi, David Bowie, Slash and Michael Jackson, to rock groups including Tenacious D, Queens of the Stone Age, Killing Joke and Nine Inch Nails, among many others (see: collaborations). Grohl contributed the track "Vile" to the soundtrack of the documentary film Rising Sun: The Legend of Skateboarder Christian Hosoi (2006).[4] Most recently, he returned to the drums and along with Josh Homme and John Paul Jones, released Them Crooked Vultures (2009), the bands' self-titled debut.
