Video: Dave Grohl Covers Van Halen With Indie Pop Duo The Bird and the Bee


Who are The Bird and the Bee? I’m not hip enough to be familiar with the indie pop duo, but apparently, they’re releasing an album called Interpreting the Masters Volume 2: A Tribute to Van Halen tomorrow, August 2. And while a collection of not-at-all-rock covers of Van Halen might strike you as a terrible idea, I, for one, think it’s the best idea — as we’ve said many times before here on MS, there’s really no point doing a rote recreation of a classic song, ’cause, well, you’re never gonna be able to compete with the original.

To promote this unusual release, The Bird and the Bee performed “Ain’t Talkin’ ‘Bout Love” on The Late Late Show with James Corden last night (July 31)… and were joined by none other than Mr. Dave Grohl on the drums. The results seem destined to be a thorn in Jamey Jasta’s side.
