Having had the surprise news that Grohl and Hawkins had re-recorded most of the record at Studio 606 Nate and Chris had the strange task of heading into a studio afterwards and adding their parts to the songs. Grohl was days away from returning to touring duties with Queens Of The Stone age which meant using his personal home studio wasn't really viable. So they, along with producer Nick Raskulinecz headed to The Hook Studios, located in the Woodlands Hill suburb of Los Angeles.
"It was a weird way to make a record" explained Chris. "We had made a version of it but we shelved that and then came back and made another one pretty quickly. Dave was leaving the next day to go back on the road with the Queens so we sat down in the studio with Nick [Raskulinecz] and listened to the demo and he said things like, 'I think you should play a little something in there. Play a little melody on that chorus.' And we went through every song and sort of figured out what it needed. And he [Grohl] just left me and Nick to record my guitars and that was that, and I didn't even know what was going to make it on to the disc or not. But a lot of it did, even though it was a weird, broken-up way of making a record. Everyone did their parts separately".
Both Mendel and Shiflett recorded their parts with Raskulinecz at the end of May and the results were mixed with the recordings made by Grohl and Hawkins earlier in the month. The album was mastered and released as 'One By One' in October 2002.
