Dave Grohl and Daughter Violet Cover Janis Ian’s
Dave Grohl and his daughter Violet have recently thrown music fans a delightful surprise - a wonderful cover of Janis Ian's song ‘At Seventeen’.
The pair gave the 1975 classic a fun, sweet update for the digital age, proving that their family’s musical talent runs deep.
The original version of the track contains lyrics about teenage feelings of loneliness, unrequited love and injustice and was regarded as controversial for its time.
The iconic songwriter shares her love for the Grohl’s rendition in a post on her personal Instagram.
The cover was shared from the Grohl’s official Instagram page and served as a reminder of the band’s incredible and lasting influence on music.
At the beginning of the video, Grohl explains that he and his daughter thought it would be fun to put their own spin on one of the rockstar’s favourite songs, and it’s certainly paid off.
