Foo Fighters leader also talked about his upcoming documentary, "What Drives Us."
It was a family affair on Jimmy Kimmel Live! on Tuesday night (Apr. 27) when Dave Grohl hit the stage with his daughter Violet to perform their cover of X's 1980 anthem "Nausea" live on TV for the first time. Joined by Grohl's former Nirvana bandmate Krist Novoselic, as well as former Slayer drummer Dave Lombardo and producer Greg Kurstin, the group ripped through the credit sequence song from Grohl's get-in-the-van touring documentary, What Drives Us, which will premiere on the Coda Collection on Amazon Prime Video on Friday (Apr. 30).
Set up in a rehearsal space, the band laid down a sludgy undercurrent for the flame-haired 15-year-old to surf on top of, as she brought the right balance of boredom and contempt to the song from the pioneering L.A. punk band's 1980 debut, Los Angeles. A smiling, mustachioed Novoselic looked like he was having a blast getting into the pocket with legendary hard-hitting drummer Lombardo as Kurstin added tasteful organ accents and Grohl joined Violet on the song's droning chorus, "Nausea/ Bloody red eyes go to/ Nausea/ Bloody red eyes go to sleep."
