Foo Fighters are currently celebrating 25 years as a band and to mark the incredible milestone, the legendary rockers posted the most epic throwback photo.

On Thursday (February 20), Foo Fighters uploaded a picture from their first-ever live performance at a keg party in Seattle.

The first half of the caption reads, “There is a moment in every band’s history when you decide it’s time to load the gear out of the practice space and bring the music to the people for the first time. This was ours, 25 years ago today. Keg party at the Marine Store, Seattle Wa....”

In the photo, you can see a young Dave Grohl at the helm of the band, guitar in hand and a small crowd watching them. “25 years later, the fear and stage fright may have faded, but the love of making music with my friends is stronger than ever. Happy anniversary, fellas,” the end of the caption read.

To commemorate just how far they've come in a quarter of a century, Foo Fighters will embark on a tour this spring retracing their steps in the same cities of their first-ever 1995 tour. Tickets are on sale now and you can check out the dates below.

Fans attending the shows will also get the first look at Grohl's new documentary, 'What Drives Us'.
