Words can’t adequately prepare you for the latest collaboration between Dave Grohl and pal/producer Greg Kurstin. The first installment of the duo’s #HanukkahSessions of music, a new tradition the pair started last Hanukkah (in the midst of the pandemic) that honors songs made popular by notable Jewish musicians is here, and it’s … amazing.

For this one, Grohl and Kurstin turned “Stay,” the classic ’90s alt/pop song from singer/songwriter Lisa Loeb, into a loud death metal anthem, and the video features Grohl in a dress, recreating the iconic original video from Loeb.

Take it all in:

This was how they introduced this new one:

Welcome back to the menorah, y’all. Let’s kick it this year’s Hanukkah sessions with one of Dallas, Texas’s favorite Jewish daughters. So put on your coffee shop spectacles and your Betsey Johnson dress and HAVA listen to this… “Stay” by Lisa Loeb.

What a gift, truly.

The song arrived on Sunday evening, Nov. 28, the official first day of Hanukkah. And, if history repeats itself (which it is now that they’ve launched a sequel series of holiday songs), expect a new cover from Grohl and Kurstin every day through Dec. 6, the final day of Hanukkah.

For more silliness, here’s the Foo Fighters’ new video for “Love Dies Young,” which features deep-fake synchronized swimming and Ted Lasso star Jason Sudeikis:

And don’t forget about the band’s new horror/comedy film, Studio 666announced earlier this month with the following synopsis, depicting the band moving into … “an Encino mansion steeped in grisly rock and roll history to record their much anticipated 10th album. Once in the house, Dave Grohl finds himself grappling with supernatural forces that threaten both the completion of the album and the lives of the band.”
