Scream was Formed in Northern Virginia in 1981 by singer Peter Stahl , his brother Franz on guitar, bassist Skeeter Thompson and drummer Kent Stax . Scream played a kind of suburban DC hardcore. They became the first band on the Dischord label to release a whole album, Still Screaming. Like the band Bad Brains, they could play clearly at breakneck speed, but what set them apart from their was great mid-tempo songs like "Laissez-Faire," which were metal-tinged reggae.
After the album Banging the Drum, Kent Stax left the band and was replaced by Dave Grohl. By that time, however, Scream's moment had passed. They recorded the uneven Fumble (which was released several years later) and then called it quits in the summer of 1990. Pete and Franz gave rock a major-label shot with the band Wool , while Grohl joined Nirvana and helped make catchy punk the sound of the '90s. In 1997, Franz Stahl joined Dave Grohl's new band The Foo Fighters.
