Foo Fighters is an album that is essentially a Dave Grohl solo album.

It was released July 4, 1995 on Roswell Records, distributed by Capitol Records.

To further establish the fact that Foo Fighters were now a full fledged band, photos of the entire lineup appeared in the liner notes. The band promoted the release that summer by completing another US tour and short tour of Europe with Wool and Shudder to Think. Wool included Peter Stahl and Franz Stahl, brothers who had previously been bandmates of Grohl in Scream, a band who issued several albums on Dischord Records, which was also the former label of Shudder to Think. During this tour, Foo Fighters played several of their largest shows up to that point, making their debut on the festival circuit with performances at Pukkelpop, Reading and Lowlands. Foo Fighters made their network television debut on The Late Show with David Letterman August 14, 1995 when they performed "This Is a Call", however no music video would be made for the song.
