Last year, 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 Bob Dylan to the Beastie Boys. This year, they're doing it again, and after kicking off the series with a death-metal rendition of Lisa Loeb's "Stay" and a bangin' cover of the Ramones' "Blitzkrieg Bop," they're honoring night three with a swingin' version of Barry Manilow's "Copacabana." 

Unlike the metal-ificication of Lisa Loeb's soft folk-pop hit, there's nothing particularly wacky or unexpected about the actual music in their version of the 1978 disco anthem. It's a pretty kick-ass and air-tight take on the song, but it's simply hysterical to see Grohl grooving along in a suit while he handles drums, vocals and more.
