The cameo on "Smells Like Teen Spirit" will definitely fill in the gap on your knowledge.
It's one of those things they you can't unhear once you've heard it. In an clip from Foo Fighters singer/guitarist Dave Grohl's Paramount+ series From Cradle to Stage, the former Nirvana drummer sits down with beatmaster Pharrell Williams to divulge the truly mind-blowing inspiration behind one of the most iconic drum beats in rock history.
After admitting to Pharrell that all he wanted to do as a kid was to be part of a drum line in the school band -- only he couldn't read music -- Grohl implores Williams to stop talking about how good a drummer he is. "I'm the most basic f---ing drummer," the ever-so-humble Grohl says to Williams, who responds with a "yeah right" look at the camera.
