Hear Dave Grohl and his daughter Violet cover X’s “Nausea”

It’ll appear in the Foo Fighter’s new documentary, out this Friday.

Foo Fighters’ Dave Grohl has covered X’s “Nausea” with his daughter Violet Grohl as a part of his upcoming documentary What Drives Us.

On the cover, which was recorded at Grohl’s home studio, the ex-Nirvana drummer steps away from the limelight to let his 15-year-old daughter deliver the lead vocals. X’s original recording of “Nausea” arrived in 1980 on their debut album Los Angeles, which was produced by The Doors’ Ray Manzarek.

The Grohls’ raw take on “Nausea” is set to appear on What Drives Us, a documentary Grohl directed about van touring and rock ’n’ roll stories from the road.


“This film is my love letter to every musician that has ever jumped in an old van with their friends and left it all behind for the simple reward of playing music,” Grohl explained in a statement. “What started as a project to pull back the curtain on the DIY logistics of stuffing all of your friends and equipment into a small space for months on end eventually turned into an exploration of ‘Why? What drives us?’”

Ben Harper, Red Hot Chili Peppers’ Flea, Slash and The Beatles’ Ringo Starr are just a few of the many rock icons that will appear in the documentary, which will be released on April 30 via Amazon Prime Video.

In February, Grohl and the rest of Foo Fighters released their tenth studio album Medicine at Midnight, featuring the singles “No Son of Mine” and “Shame Shame.”
