So Dave Grohl Has Been Busy Doing More Cool Stuff

As if everything he’s doing with the Foo Fighters isn’t enough–and it never is–he’s part of a new supergroup featuring Nick Oliveri (the exiled guy from Queens of the Stone Age), Corey Taylor (Slipknot/Stone Sour) and Reed Mullin (Corrosion of Conformity). They call themselves Teenage Time Killers and plan to release a 20-track album on July 31 called Greatest Hits Vol. 1.

The group also features contributions from (deep breath) Pat Smear of Foo Fighters, Randy Blythe of Lamb of God, Dead Kenndy’s Jello Biafra, Matt Skiba of Alkaline Trio (and the guy who subbed for Mark Hoppus in of Blink-182 earlier this year), Tommy Victor of Prong and Danzig, Fear’s Lee Ving, Eyehategod’s Mike “IX” Williams, Mike Dean and Woody Weatherman also of Corrosion of Conformity, Leadfoot founder and former Corrosion of Conformity member Karl Agell, Rapper, singer, and Murphy’s wife Tairrie B, and more.

Here’s a sample featuring Grohl on bass and Randy Blythe on vocals.


The other cool news from the Grohl/Foos camp is that the band is streaming Songs from the Laundry Room, which was their Record Store Day release. It features four tracks from the earliest days of the Foos–remember the scene in Sonic Highways when Dave and Barrett Jones dug through some old recordings?–and features Dave’s demos of “Alone + Easy Target” and “Big Me.” And that version of Kim Wilde’s “Kids in America?” It’s here.

  • Tom Delonge is the Blink-182 member that’s gone, not Mark Hoppus.
