There is a chance that "The Hand That Feeds" will work for this. Grohl played drums on seven tracks for the NIN album "With Teeth and I'm positive that is one of them. "The Collector" might work as well. We'll have to see.

Didn't he also play for Queens of the Stone Age?
That might work too.

Looks like they messed this one up. 3s & 7s qualifies, but No one knows and Go With the flow don't. Grohl played with QOTSA for Songs for the deaf, but left shortly after. None of the foo fighters songs that I have qualify, which really doesn't make any sense.

It is a DLC related achievement, so only DLC songs work. That's why 3s & 7s can make the cut and No One Knows (RB3) and Go With The Flow (RB1) don't. Something like that, anyway.

I was wondering why Drain You didn't work. That one was on Nevermind, so definitely had Grohl.

@ #14 Great question! It would be great if they did count.
I forgot he played with them!

@14, the song on RB2 shouldn't count but I can't see why the dlc ones won't. I can test this this weekend and check.

When I clicked on the challenge The perfect drug showed up and it gave me credit for it so I assume anything that shows up when you select the challenge will suffice. The Metal was on the list.

Where is this challenge located? I downloaded the Nine Inch Nails song the perfect drug that is suppose to work for this achievement also but I cant found the challenge anywhere. And I know I downloaded some foo fighters songs.

@#22 I think you have to have 5 songs with Dave Grohl in it, like I have some, such as "The Metal" (stolen from Oogie games (took the D.L.C. code from BrĂ¼tal Legend case, so there is a way to get 3 free songs, but only one works, I think and I just downloaded and played "The Pretender" and it still doesn't tell me, so I think you need to own at least 5 songs (downloaded) before it will tell you which ones are compatable.

Comment #24 by AndyKusanagi

I got it with:

This is a Call
The Pretender
Monkey Wrench
Smells Like Teen Spirit
Lithium (Live at Reading)

By the way, shavron (#2), The Hand That Feeds won't work for two reasons:
1. Dave didn't play on that track, and
2. It's not DLC. Your 5 songs must be DLC, exports from previous games don't count.

Hi all,

I went on the RB music store today and there was a SALE section, lot's of the bands that Dave Grohl has played in were in that section. I wasn't gonna bother with this cheevo but seeing as the tracks were only 80G each I thought i'd give it a shot.

Apologies if everyone already knew about it, but there wasn't a post on this comment thread so I just thought I'd share.

As far as I know, in all Tenacious D's studio recorded songs Dave Grohl played drums (at least Wikipedia said that).

So any song from the D's counts.
