In his 30 years in the business, Dave Grohl has earned himself a reputation as one of the nicest man in rock.

The former Nirvana drummer and Foo Fighters mainman is held up as a great example of how being a rock star doesn't always mean being an asshole.

Now, LOLsnaps (via Consequence of Sound) has put together one mammoth image cataloguing Grohl's good guy exploits over the years. Check it out below.

Foo Fighters are currently are currently working on their as yet untitled eighth studio album.

    Few corrections 1. That Nickleback post isn't actually Dave 2. They played alot more than just one garage show 3. Thats not Dave's guitar after practice, its Pat Smears'.

    I dont like Nickelback any more than anyone else on UG, but I'm actually glad that the Nickelback post wasn't actually Dave. It would be unprofessional of him to post something like that.

    Agreed. If anything, that's even more commendable. To be able to dislike something and not mention it is better than pushing your opinions onto others, especially when you have as much influence as Dave Grohl. As it stands, if he said something's bad, many people (myself included) would probably agree with him.

    I actually was disappointed that it was fake, since it made me crack up the most from the whole thing.

    He's a pretty cool guy, I have never been really into Foo Fighters, but he seems alright. Them Crooked Vultures album was quite enjoyable.
    bangbang!!
    So glad that "one of the nicest man" and his band "are currently are currently" recording!

    Grohl is Love. Grohl is Life. Seriously though I like that UG have simply accepted this is a thing now.

    The guy is also a really talented musician. You may not like his music, but you can't deny his talent!

    Also that photo at the very top of the Beaconsfield miners is actually the two actors from the movie they made about it.

    A ton of Grohl haters on here because he just is a genuinely nice guy. That is threatening because we all feel the need to guard against nice people who have no motive. Go Dave! Being a generally cool dude from the inside out.

    Yeah, Dave really is awesome. However, that third last picture really needs some context. All I could think was "why is he dancing with a studded dildo?"
    Mr. Baloonhands
    There's really no legitimate reason to hate Dave honestly, yeah you might get sick of seeing him everywhere, but the guys got nothing but good intentions. Always has since day one, so when people bash him it's almost hilarious cause half the time they don't even really understand what they're saying. Dave kicks ass and I hope he's around for awhile

    I agree, he doesn't look for publicity all the time but he gets it though, he just can't help it, except for being so nice and cool.
    LeperDog
    He's a nice guy, no doubt about that. It's just that he gets a ton of unwarranted hype on this website.

    Wow thanks ultimate guitar the high quality of these little pictures blew me away truly outstanding!

    I don't get all of the love for Dave Grohl. I'm sure he's a nice guy and all but none of his music is what I would call 'amazing'. To me, the Foo Fighters is kind of generic sounding.
