On night five of their annual Hanukkah Sessions, Foo Fighters frontman Dave Grohl and musical compatriot Greg Kurstin were joined by the award-winning songwriter and performer Beck for a cover of the artist’s popular song “E-Pro”

“It’s a little-known fact that our favorite Grammy-winning Guero actually has Jewish roots. From Adonai to Odelay, it’s @beck with “E-Pro!” #happyhanukkah#hanukkahsessions#chanukkah,” The Foo Fighters’ official Twitter account shared.

Joined by backup singers and infused with a lot of energy, the song was a hit performed live.

For the third year in a row, Grohl, the Foo Fighters frontman, and musical pal, Greg Kurstin, are celebrating Hanukkah with their annual week of covers, known as the Hanukkah Sessions. 

Each year, the duo celebrates songs written by Jewish artists.

For night four, the duo was joined by Grohl’s 16-year-old daughter Violet Grohl for a cover of the coming-of-age song “At Seventeen.”

For night three, the pair were joined by Inara George for a cover of the song “The Things We Do For Love.”

The duo kicked off their traditional week of covers by performing a rendition of “Spinning Wheel” by Blood, Sweat & Tears, getting a little help from movie producer Judd Apatow. 

Grohl and Kurstin recorded their performances for the sessions in front of a live studio audience at Largo in Los Angeles earlier this month. Reportedly, other performances this year include offerings from P!NK, Violet Grohl, Beck, Karen O, Jack Black, and Kyle Gass. Proceeds from the Hanukkah Sessions will go to the Anti-Defamation League.

For night two, the duo was joined by P!nk for a rendition of her song “Get The Party Started.”

The first two seasons are all available to stream on all DSPs. Check back with American Songwriter for an update on the latest from Grohl and Kurstin and their Hanukkah Sessions.
