This documentary, created in 2013 is directed and produced by the musician Dave Grohl. This is his first project of this kind. It is concerned with the Sound City Studios, a recording studio located in Van Nuys in the city of Los Angeles. The album ‘Nevermind’ from the band Nirvana was recorded in this studio.

Dave Grohl was the drummer of Nirvana, and at the time of recording he came up with the idea of a documentary about the studio. Grohl purchased some of the equipment from the studio after it was closed in 2011.

The studio was known for its ability to produce hi quality drum records using an analog console Neve, which Grohl later purchased from the sudio. Some of the artists that recorded their albums in this cult studio are Slipknot, Red Hot Chili Peppers, Neil Young and Fleetwood Mac.

The documentary is covering the story about the studio since the very beginning in 1969, and to the end of its existence in 2011. The end credits of this documentary have a dedication to the key grip of this film, Brian Hauge who sadly passed away in 2012.

The premiere of this film was in January 18th in 2013 at the Sundance Film Festival.
