Dave Grohl’s favourite album by The Beatles

Dave Grohl is best known for his work as Nirvana’s drummer and subsequently as the lead singer of the Foo Fighters. Grohl’s musical output reflects his wide-ranging musical preferences. He has credited various musicians as influences, including hardcore legends Bad Brains and punk rock bands like the Ramones, as well as Led Zeppelin and The Beatles from classic rock.

He has also listed his favorite albums of all time from different artists. It was when Melody Maker asked him to list his favorite albums. His choices had various iconic bands like Led Zeppelin and Bad Brains. Of course, the list would be incomplete without The Beatles, and when it came to The Beatles, he chose their, ‘The White Album‘.

He said, “What year did this come out? I think I was a glimpse of hope in my parents’ eyes but this has some of my favorite Beatles songs on it: ‘Blackbird’, ‘Revolution #9’, ‘Revolution’, ‘Helter Skelter’. It’s funny to imagine those four cute little Beatles years later on LSD. Where did they go wrong, writing something like ‘Helter Skelter’ and influencing Charles Manson? I’d call this timeless.”

In recent years, Grohl maintained his devotion to the Beatles, reserving particular respect for the band’s two living members, Paul McCartney, and Ringo Starr. When The Guardian asked Grohl what book he planned to read in 2022, Grohl mentioned Paul McCartney’s The Lyrics, a compilation of his most recent lyrics.

He said, “I’m familiar with every one of Paul McCartney’s songs, and I could probably recite most of them off the top of my head, but to have this new perspective coming from the writer, explaining the songs himself, is really rewarding. It humanizes the whole process.” 

He also added, “I did love the documentary Get Back too, I watched Ringo the entire time: I know what it’s like to sit on a drum stool and watch a bunch of people argue. All you want to do is play a beat. Come on, f*** it, no more words!”
