Dave Grohl Takes Us Back In Time With 20-Year Old Demo

Maybe you're tired of Dave Grohl's contemporary work. Between Sonic Highways (Grohl's documentary series on HBO) and the identically titled album, it's easy to see why somebody might be suffering from Foo Fighters fatigue. It's entirely possible that Grohl understands your frustration, too, as he's gone and dug up a piece of his past for your consideration. Friday, on the latest episode of Sonic Highway, Grohl busted out a demo of "Hooker On the Street," a song he wrote over twenty years ago while still in Nirvana.

And boy does it sound like a song from the mid-nineties. It's got the grimy, funky bass-line and the kind of raunchy, self-consciously stupid lyrics that wouldn't have been totally out of place on an earlier Red Hot Chili Peppers album. Grohl's vocals land somewhere between Glen Danzig's and James Brown's and the guitars are colored with shades of Jane's Addiction and (bizarrely) Fugazi. It may not send you back to the past but lord if you won't probably be nostalgic (or sad. Or both) after giving this track a listen.
