How many Grammys have Foo Fighters won?

ROCK icons Foo Fighters scooped up a whopping three awards at the Grammy Awards on April 3, 2022 in Las Vegas.

The five-piece rock band’s stellar success comes just weeks after the tragic death of drummer Taylor Hawkins.

The band received three awards but did not perform on the show after the death of drummer Taylor Hawkins (3rd from right).

The 50-year-old died hours before the band was due to play a concert in Colombia on March 25.

He suffered from chest pains before his death – investigators later found opioids, marijuana and other drugs in his system, but it has not been confirmed if this contributed to his death.

The band was supposed to play the 64th awards show, but instead organizers played a video in Hawkins’ honor — it was set to the Foo Fighters song My Hero.

Host Jimmy Jam accepted the awards in the band’s absence at the MGM Grand Garden Arena and offered his prayers for them and their loved ones.

The song, released as the album’s third single ahead of the album’s release on February 5, 2021, was written by Dave Grohl.

It was inspired by a somber conversation Grohl had with his daughter Harper about the war – inspired by his own fears of the Cold War growing up.
