Foo Fighters get their disco on for You Should Be Dancing video
The rendition is taken from their upcoming 10-track disco album due out exclusively at record stores this Saturday. The LP features covers of three other Bee Gees songs (Night Fever, Tragedy and More Than A Woman), plus Andy Gibb’s Shadow Dancing, and reworked versions of five Medicine At Midnight tracks: Making A Fire, Shame Shame, Waiting On A War, No Son Of Mine and Cloudspotter.
Of Hail Satin – which was recorded at the band’s own Studio 606 – the Foos say: “Introducing… the Dee Gees!!! Hail Satin – coming to a local record store and dance party near you July 17!!”

When they initially unveiled their You Should Be Dancing cover for the BBC back in February (which presumably sowed the seeds for the Dee Gees), Dave Grohl told Jo Wiley: “We’ve been going down to our studio every day and filming things and recording things, and this one day we had our list of things we were supposed to do and it said, ‘Record a cover song for Jo.’
“And while we were having this conversation somebody said, ‘Hey, have you seen that Bee Gees documentary?’ And I was like the last person on earth – the only person that hadn’t seen it! So I was like, ‘Why don’t we just do a Bee Gees song?’ And someone was just like, ‘Okay… how do you wanna do it?!’ And I said, ‘Well, let’s do it like the Bee Gees.’
“We started recording the instrumental track, and then I thought, ‘Okay, well I’m gonna go out and sing it…’ and let me tell you: I have never, ever in my life sung like that, but it was the easiest song I have ever sung in my entire life! I sang the song, and it was like six minutes and I was done. I should have been singing like this for the last 25 years!”
