See the Foo Fighters frontman and his eldest daughter's rendition of the American singer's idontwannabeyouanymore at a benefit show last year.

2019 was a huge year for Billie Eilish.

Not only did she score a No.1 debut album with When We All Fall Asleep, Where Do We Go?, but she's just been nominated for a whopping six GRAMMY Awards.

And if that wasn't enough, she's been praised by everyone from Radiohead's Thom Yorke, to Red Hot Chili Peppers' Flea and the mighty Dave Grohl.

Last year the Foo Fighters rocker even helped his youngest child cover the singer-songwriter when they attended the Autism Speaks: Into The Blue gala.

Watch them perform Eilish's idontwannabeyouanymore track above, in a video shared on Instagram by discogrohl and credited to stacieannabelle.

After Grohl praised Billie Eilish by comparing the passion of her fanbase to Nirvana's in 1991, explaining: "I went to see Billie Eilish not too long ago. Oh my god man. Unbelievable. My daughters are obsessed with Billy Eilish. And what I'm seeing happening with my daughters is the same revolution that happened to me at their age. My daughters are listening to Billie Eilish and they're becoming themselves through her music.

"She totally connects to them. So we went to go see her play at the Wiltern, and the connection that she has with her audience is the same thing that was happening with Nirvana in 1991. The people in the audience knew every word. And it was like our little secret. So I don't know...and her music is hard to define! I don't know what you call it! I try to describe her to people and I don't know.......I don't even know what to call it. But it's authentic. And I would call that rock n roll. So.... I don't care what sort of instruments you use to do it. When I look at someone like Billie Eilish, I'm like...shit man....rock n roll is not even close to being dead..."

Reacting to Dave's compliment, the 17-year-old singer-songwriter told Radio X: “Are you kidding? He said rock isn’t dead because of me."

Speaking of the grunge band, she added: "Dude, I grew up on that shit.”
