Watch Dave Grohl Cover Kiss ‘Rock and Roll All Nite’
On the eighth and final night of their 2021 Hanukkah Sessions, Dave Grohl and Greg Kurstin covered the Kiss classic “Rock and Roll All Nite”.
“Ladies and gentlemen… we made it happen. Night 8! Says a message accompanying the YouTube video. And what better way to celebrate another year of Hanukkah Sessions than Chaim Witz and Stanley Eisen… two young guys from Queens who set the world (and thousands of stages on fire) on fire as Gene Simmons and Paul Stanley from Kiss ! “
The duo put on make-up for their interpretation, Kurstin copying Stanley’s “Starchild” look, while Grohl adopted Simmons’ “Demon” style. In addition to swinging around the studio, the duo are also seen doing basic daily activities – such as reading books, practicing yoga, refueling, and stopping at a local convenience store – all while still wearing makeup by Kiss.
In his message to fans, Grohl thanked “everyone who has helped ramp up the Hanukkah sessions this year,” before adding, “Now let’s rock and roll the night away and party every day till. ‘to the next Hanukkah! “

Grohl has a Kiss fandom story. At an awards ceremony in 2015, the frontman of the Foo Fighters admitted that classic rockers inspired him to become a musician. In a separate interview, Grohl also revealed that he became friends with Stanley during a chance meeting, as their two children were attending the same school.
The latest cover wraps up the 2021 “Hanukkah Sessions”. The annual lore, which began in 2020, sees the Foo Fighters frontman and award-winning producer covering a different Jewish performer each night of the holiday.
In addition to Kiss, this year’s “Hanukkah Sessions” featured covers of Grohl and Kurstin by Lisa Loeb, the Ramones, Barry Manilow, Van Halen, Amy Winehouse, Billy Joel and the Clash.
