Dave Grohl and his legendary band the Foo Fighters have seen widespread success in every aspect of their music, and now the post-grunge rockers will continue expanding their repertoire with food – Top Chef, to be specific. The popular rockers have agreed to participate as guest stars in an episode on Bravo’s cooking competition television show Top Chef, acting as judges for the show’s Thanksgiving special. The episode of Top Chef is tentatively titled “Foo Fighters’ Thanksgiving,” and will air on November 26 at a Rochester, New York restaurant Grant Achatz.

Top Chef has just embarked upon its fifth season, and the Bravo program has entertained fans with a wide variation of guest appearances in its four year stretch so far. Among the other 48+ guests to appear on episodes of Top Chef over the years are chefs Anthony Bourdain, Rocco DiSpirito, Eric Ripert, Hubert Keller and Michelle Bernstein. The musical wonders the Foo Fighters might seem a bit out of place in this food-inspired lineup, but the post-grunge rock stars will nevertheless add just the right amount of seasoning for the monumental Thanksgiving episode of the reality show.

Before the Foo Fighters were cooking up a storm on the mainstream music scene, the Seattle-formed rock band was emerging in the wake of the Seattle grunge scene, taking over in the 1990s in the waning dominance of bands like Nirvana and Pearl Jam. If the Foo Fighters’ signature sound is strikingly similar to that of Nirvana, it is because the band was formed by Dave Grohl, the drummer for Nirvana before the band’s disbandment following lead singer Kurt Cobain’s death in 1994. Cobain’s suicide split apart the ultimate grunge band, and Grohl drifted into the studio with longtime friend Barrett Jones, tossing around a 15-track demo that turned into the Foo Fighters’ debut album. Grohl and Jones teamed up with Sunny Day Real Estate bassist Nate Mendel and drummer William Goldsmith, and former Germs/Nirvana guitarist Pat Smear rounded out the Foo Fighters’ lineup in 1995.

From this point on, the Foo Fighters (named after a World War II secret force that allegedly researched UFOs) were a staple in the mainstream rock realm. Early singles “This Is a Call” and “Big Me” got the ball rolling for the now-famous rock band, and the Foo Fighters started gaining the attention of fans and various Billboard chart toppers, starting with 1999’s “Learn to Fly.” “All My Life” was also a Billboard number one in 2002, and “Best of You” landed at the number one slot in 2005, quickly followed by the chart-topping “DOA” the same year, while “Long Road to Ruin” and “Let it Die” also chalked up two more number ones in 2007. Garnering six Grammy Awards since 2000, the Foo Fighters are still one of the most dominant figures on the rock scene today.
