Watch Ethiopian Kids Sing Nirvana to Learn English & Celebrate Dave Grohl's Birthday
Last year, a thousand people in Cesena, Italy, got together to record a cover of the Foo Fighters’ “Learn to Fly” and convince Dave Grohl and company to play a special concert in their country. Thursday (Jan. 14) is Grohl’s 47th birthday, and he received another international video tribute to mark the occasion.
A bunch of ninth and 10th grade English students at Ethiopia’s Yechila High School got together and sang Nirvana’s “Smells Like Teen Spirit” as an ode to the guy who drummed on the track back in '91. In Ethiopia, learning English is a prerequisite for getting into college, and Peace Corps volunteer Matt Westerberg thought teaching them the words to an alternative rock classic would be a great way to learn some new vocabulary.
Check out the video below:
This wasn’t the first time Matt Westerberg brought ‘90s Seattle to Ethiopia: In 2015, he taught the kids Pearl Jam’s “Even Flow.”
