You obviously know Grohl from Foo Fighters and Nirvana, but the multi-instrumentalist also played on a few bands before that.
In the 80s, he was the drummer for punk band Mission Impossible. A song the band recorded in 1985 is part of the soundtrack for an upcoming documentary about the evolution of punk in D.C. from 1980 to 1990.
Rolling Stone is sharing the track “Now I’m Alone,” which the group recorded in 1985, and you can heard it in full below.

There’s one last band Dave Grohl wants to drum for
Besides playing drums in Mission Impossible and Nirvana, Grohl handled percussion on the first two Foo Fighters albums, you’d think that Dave Grohl maybe got his fill of the drum stool. But no.
When asked by Forbes journalist Steve Baltin about his “dream person to play drums for,” the rock Renaissance man doesn’t hesitate with his answer.
“AC/DC,” says Grohl unequivocally. “That’s my last one, that’s it. Phil Rudd is back though. If you dive back into their back catalog, that early s**t, there was a little bit more dynamic, then they settled into the groove. That’s the thing.”
In other corners of Dave Grohl’s world, the musician will perform the 23-minute instrumental song he wrote and recorded for mini-doc Play at this December’s Warren Haynes’ Christmas Jam in North Carolina.
