Foo Fighters frontman Dave Grohl and producer Greg Kurstin continue their Hanukkah celebration with the seventh installment of The Hanukkah Sessions! This time they covered The Knack’s “Frustrated.”

“Tonight we’re featuring 4 nice Jewish boys whose biggest hit was a song about a nice Jewish girl… ‘My Shalom-a’ or something like that,” Grohl and Kurstin wrote in a tweet posted to Foo Fighters’ Twitter. “We’re huge fans of New Wave (as well as the ‘old wave’ that came after Moses parted the Red Sea) so we are psyched to present…The Knack!
