Today Is Dave Grohl’s Birthday. Even Kids in Ethiopia are Celebrating

Happy 47th birthday, Dave Grohl. This will warm your heart.

Some kids at Yechila Secondary School in northern Ethiopia are learning to speak English. A Peace Corps volunteer named Matt Westerberg took it upon himself to help these kids along by teaching them the lyrics to “Smells Like Teen Spirit.” The performance is offered as a birthday gift to Dave.
