Foo Fighters frontman Dave Grohl and producer Greg Kurstin have rounded out their Hanukkah Sessions cover series with a cover of The Velvet Underground’s “Rock & Roll.”
“As 2020 comes to a close and another Hanukkah ends (my first!) I am reminded of the two things that have gotten me through this year: music and hope,” Grohl explains. “This project, which initially began as a silly idea, grew to represent something much more important to me. It shows me that the simple gesture of spreading joy and happiness goes a long way, and as we look forward, we should all make an effort to do so, no matter how many candles are left to light on the menorah.”
The duo have shared eight covers of Jewish artists, one for each night of Hanukkah. Grohl and Kurstin’s cover of “Rock & Roll” follows covers of The Knack, Elastica, Bob Dylan, Peaches, Mountain, Drake, and Beastie Boys.
