The Foo Fighters rocker and Greg Kurstin performed the 2000 hit F*** The Pain Away on night four of their Hanukkah Sessions series.
Dave Grohl has covered Peaches' F*** The Pain Away and it's giving us serious '00s indie club nostalgia.

Some fans weren't aware of the original song and joked that they needed a warning beforehand or a cigarette afterwards.
