Day four of Dave Grohl’s Hanukkah Sessions features a performance from his 16-year-old daughter

For the third year in a row, Dave Grohl and his buddy Greg Kurstin are doling out cover versions during the eight nights of Hanukkah. The special guest for the fourth night was Dave’s 16-year-old daughter, Violet.

All eight of the sessions were filmed in front of a live audience back on December 5 in Los Angeles. So what’s still to come? These songs were performed that night:

  • “E-Pro,” the Beck song featuring Beck hisself.
  • “Heads Will Roll” from the Yeah Yeah Yeahs with Karen O.
  • “The Spirit of Radio,” featuring Jack Black.
  • “Just a Gigalo/I Ain’t Got Nobody” (done David Lee Roth style) with Black and partner Kyle Gass.

  • I enjoy “David Lee Rush” as a sort of crossover concept there and it inspired some quite hilarious mental imagery, but I think you mean Roth.

    • Good point. A typo on my part, but it would have been funny if it were real…
