"You Should be Dancing," Foo Fighters
Being dads, we're unapologetic fans of "Dad Rock." Wilco? Yes please!
But we'll cop to being perpetually bored with the Foo Fighters, who make rock music for airport lounges and doctors' waiting rooms everywhere. Dave Grohl seems like a genuinely nice guy and an affable dude, but exactly when or why did Pop Culture anoint him as the Ambassador of Rock? Grohl's job is to remind millennials and zoomers that Rock has now joined Jazz as music that only the olds listen to.
But then the Foos release this truly badass cover of another dusty chestnut-- the Bee Gees' "You Should be Dancing," from their upcoming album of disco covers-- and suddenly we're fans. Enjoy!
