20 Years ago today, on May 20th 1997 the Foo Fighters dropped "The Colour and the Shape". Although officially the bands second release, it was the first offering from the Foo Fighters as a band (Dave Grohl had recorded all of the first album by himself with the exception of one guitar part by Greg Dulli). Primarily inspired by Grohl's divorce from photographer Jennifer Youngblood, main singles "Monkey Wrench", "Everlong" and "My Hero" peaked within the top ten on United States rock radio stations. It was nominated for a Grammy Award in 1998 for Best Rock Album and is the Foo's biggest U.S. seller, having sold over two million copies.
