When Dave and Violet Grohl shared the cover, the Foo Fighters frontman shared a personal story about his own connection to the song. In an Instagram post on “Dave’s True Stories” he shared the tale. “I wanted to record a song that would not only pay tribute to the people and music that influenced me to become a musician, but also pay tribute to my long family history,” Grohl wrote of the cover.

The Grohls recorded their original cover of “Nausea” in their home studio. It appears in Dave Grohl’s documentary, What Drives Us. The cover sees Violet taking lead vocals, as she delivers powerful lines like, “Tonight you’ll fall asleep in clothes/ So late like a candy bar wrapped up/ For lunch that’s all you get to taste/ Poverty and spit.” As the track progresses, Violet is joined by her father on the chorus.
Dave and Violet Grohl also performed “Nausea” on Jimmy Kimmel Live! For the performance, they recruited Krist Novoselic and Dave Lombardo. They debuted the live performance of the tune alongside their all-star backing band. Violet truly stole the show with some powerful vocals as she delivered lines with confidence.
