Dave Grohl has recruited his 15-year-old daughter, Violet, for a cover of Amy Winehouse’s “Take the Box.”
The track serves as the fifth installment of Dave Grohl and producer Greg Kurstin’s Hanukkah Sessions. The poignant cover of “Take the Box” sees Violet taking the vocal lead. Kurstin plays keys and Dave Grohl plays the drums, as Violet croons along to the jazzy ballad. The accompanying black-and-white video captures the moving performance in full.
“Despite this song’s mention of a ‘Moschino bra you bought me last Christmas,’ it’s common knowledge that the amazing woman behind the song was actually Jewish. Gone far too soon…” the Foo Fighters frontman wrote on social media.

Dave Grohl and Greg Kurstin are in the middle of their second annual Hanukkah Sessions. Grohl has once again teamed up with producer Greg Kurstin for the series. The Foo Fighters frontman will share covers of exclusively Jewish artists for the eight days of Hanukkah.
Prior to “Take the Box” and the rest of this year’s covers, Grohl and Kurstin shared a bunch of covers last year. The first installment of Hanukkah Sessions featured covers of Beastie Boys’ “Sabotage,” Drake’s “Hotline Bling,” Mountain’s “Mississipi Queen,” and Peaches’ “Fuck The Pain Away.” They also covered The Velvet Underground’s “Rock & Roll,” Knack’s “Frustrated,” Bob Dylan’s “Rainy Day Women #12 & 35,” and Elastica’s “Connection.”
