For the last two years, Foo Fighters frontman Dave Grohl and eight-time Grammy-winning producer Greg Kurstin celebrated the Jewish Festival of Lights with a series they dubbed Hanukkah Sessions, in which they covered eight songs by prominent Jewish artists — from a death-metal rendition of Lisa Loeb's "Stay" to a bangin' cover of the Ramones' "Blitzkrieg Bop."
This year, they filmed the series at a live show at The Coronet in Los Angeles that featured a smattering of special guests, including director Judd Apatow and the Yeah Yeah Yeah's Karen O. Today (December 25th), for the seventh night of Hanukkah, Grohl and Kurstin offered up their rocking cover of Rush's "The Spirit of Radio" with none other than actor and Tenacious D frontman Jack Black on characteristically energetic vocals.
Grohl commented: "Geddy Lee's mother was so proud of her son that she put Rush posters up all over their family store and gave away Rush albums to kids who didn't have money to buy them. In tribute to that proud Jewish mother, we give you — free of charge— 'The Spirit of Radio' featuring Jack Black!"
