Two hours and 15 minutes about the drummer from Nirvana

FOO FIGHTERS: BACK AND FORTH tells the story of how Nirvana's drummer Dave Grohl in the wake of Kurt Cobain's suicide managed to cobble together a band which during the following decade went on to become one of the biggest acts in North America. Basically, it's the story of a band that has everything – except a decent band name. As Grohl himself explains: "Honestly, had I taken this whole career thing seriously, I would have named it something else – 'cause it's the worst fucking band name in the world".
