Back in August, 10-year-old Nandi Bushell challenged Foo Fighters frontman Dave Grohl to a ‘drum off’ in a Youtube video where she played the Foo’s hit track Everlong.
Grohl accepted the challenge, replying in a tweet from the band’s official account. “Challenge accepted,” Grohl wrote, tagging Bushell. “Haven’t played these songs in a loooooong time…..thanks for the inspiration!” Before adding, “Your move!!!”
Haven’t played these songs in a loooooong time…..thanks for the inspiration!!!

Grohl graciously accepted defeat in Round 1, but it turns out he had a trick up his sleeve for Round 2. On Monday Grohl released a song on twitter that he had written just for Nandi, featuring his daughters on back-up vocals .
