Video: Dave Grohl Covers Beastie Boys’ “Sabotage” for Hanukkah


Happy Hanukkah! The Festival of Lights began yesterday at sundown, and as promised, Foo Fighters mastermind Dave Grohl is celebrated the holiday by releasing a cover of a song by a Jewish musician — in this case, “Sabotage,” by Beastie Boys.

Says Grohl of the cover:

“As the only Rock and Roll Hall Of Famers with a lyric about kugel, we thought it would be a shanda to not kick off this party with New York’s (and Abraham’s) finest…known by some as Shadrach, Meshach, and Abedenego, known by others as Ad-Rock, Mike D, and MCA…known by their Imas and Abbas as Adam Horovitz, Mike Diamond and Adam Yauch… Beastie Boys!”

You can check out the cover, which Grohl did with producer Greg Kurstin, below. It’s pretty great… not least of all because of Grohl’s Adrock impression.

Enjoy (and don’t forget to come back for the next seven covers!):
