(Gibson) Nirvana wasn't Dave Grohl's first band. Before becoming a mega-star with "Smells Like Teen Spirit," he rocked as the drummer in Washington, D.C. punk band Scream.

Scream recorded their final album in 1993, Fumble, and the guys recently reissued the set via Dischord Records. In honor of the reissue, Grohl posted a reflection of his time with Scream.

"Once upon a time, when I was just a wee lad, I played drums in a punk rock band from the Washington, D.C. area called Scream," Grohl wrote in a Facebook message. "I had grown up buying their records and going to see their live shows, and eventually had the honor of becoming their drummer at the age of 17. Fresh out of high school, I started touring the world with them from 1987-1990." Read more here.
