Throughout his time in Nirvana Dave Grohl continued to write and record his own material whenever the opportunity arose, partnering up with his friend Barrett Jones at his Laundry Room Studio in Seattle, Washington.
Several songs were recorded in early 1993, likely after Nirvana returned from a short South American tour in January and before a new North American tour in April. "'Weenie Beenie' and 'Podunk' were thrown together in early 1993, as were lots of other songs I sure hope no one ever hears" Grohl quipped. "'For All The Cows' was done around the same time, and my growing love of recording cover songs led me to record 'Ozone' from Ace Frehley's solo record and the Angry Samoans' 'Gas Chamber'", he added.
On January 8th 1995 Eddie Vedder of Pearl Jam broadcasted two previously unreleased Grohl songs. 'Exhausted' and the Angry Samoans cover 'Gas Chamber' were broadcast during his "Self-Pollution" Radio Show, a four hour broadcast in which Pearl Jam played live material in the studio and Vedder played some music by other bands. Grohl gave him the tape containing those two tracks (and possibly more) and gave him permission to broadcast them during the show. 'Gas Chamber' was taken from this session/timeframe whilst 'Exhausted' came from a slighty earlier timeframe.
In 2004, shortly before the release of Foo Fighters' fifth studio album In Your Honor a tape was digitised and shared on the internet featuring several of Grohl's early recordings including 'Weenie Beenie' from this timeframe.
