Dave Grohl and Greg Kurstin released their cover version of Beastie Boys‘ 1994 hit “Sabotage” on Thursday night (December 10).
The release, which marked the celebration of the beginning of Hanukkah, is the first in Grohl and Kurstin’s “The Hanukkah Sessions” series, which will see the two covering songs by different Jewish artists for each night during the eight-day Festival of Lights.
The video features Grohl recording his vocals while drumming, with Kurstin playing the keyboards.
“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 their Imas & Abbas as @beastieboys!” a tweet from the Foo Fighters account says.
Ahead of the release, the duo announced the series through a promo video that shows Grohl saying, “This year, instead of doing a Christmas song, this year, Greg and I decided to celebrate Hanukkah by recording eight songs by eight famous Jewish artists and releasing one song each night of Hanukkah.”
