Disco Dave: Foo Fighters have covered the Bee Gees... and it's absolutely brilliant [LISTEN]

It's got to be getting hard for Dave Grohl and the Foo Fighters to come up with something new and outrageous to do at this point - but somehow they just keep doing them! 



Sure - you may have heard the band do some covers over their 25 year existence ... maybe you've seen it once or twice too - like when Taylor Hawkins swapped places with Dave to sing Under Pressure while Dave played drums 



Well look out - the band has unleashed a cover like no other - giving us their rendition of  the Bee Gees’ classic You Should Be Dancing.


The back story - the band were slated to record a cover for Jo Wiley’s BBC Radio 2 Sofa Session.  And one day in the studio  - the project came up on the to-do list.  


Dave explained: 

“And while we were having this conversation somebody said, ?‘Hey, have you seen that Bee Gees documentary?’ And I was like the last person on earth – the only person that hadn’t seen it! So I was like, ?‘Why don’t we just do a Bee Gees song?’ And someone was just like, ?‘Okay… how do you wanna do it?!’ And I said: ?‘Well, let’s do it like the Bee Gees.’


We started recording the instrumental track, and then I thought, ?‘Okay, well I’m gonna go out and sing it…’ and let me tell you: I have never, ever in my life sung like that, but it was the easiest song I have ever sung in my entire life!” the frontman jokes. ?“I sang the song, and it was like six minutes and I was done. I should have been singing like this for the last 25 years!”


The result is absolutely amazing  ... hear a sample below or keep scrolling for a link to the full session



The only thing that could top this .... is if they made an old school FF video to accompany the track!
