Watch Dave Grohl and Greg Kurstin Cover The Knack’s ‘Frustrated’

    For day seven of their ongoing Hannukah Sessions cover series, Dave Grohl and Greg Kurstin have shared their take on The Knack’s ‘Frustrated’. Watch it below.

    “Tonight we’re featuring four nice Jewish boys whose biggest hit was a song about a nice Jewish girl… ‘My Shalom-a’ or something like that…,” they joked in the video’s caption. “We’re huge fans of New Wave (as well as the ‘old wave’ that came after Moses parted the Red Sea)… so we were psyched to get to cover one of our favorites… The Knack!”

    Over the past week, Grohl and Kurstin have been sharing covers of songs by Jewish musicians to commemorate each night of the Festival of Lights. Previously, they covered Beastie Boys’ ‘Sabotage’, Mountain’s ‘Mississippi Queen’, Drake’s ‘Hotline Bling’, Peaches’ ‘Fuck the Pain Away’,  Bob Dylan’s ‘Rainy Day Women #12 & 35’, and Elastica’s ‘Connection’. Kurstin produced the Foo Fighters’ upcoming record, Medicine at Midnight, which is set for release on February 5.
