After previously performing the Bee Gees’ 1976 song on BBC Radio 2 back in February and during their Madison Square Garden show last month, Foo Fighters – or the Dee Gees – have now shared a full performance video for their rendition of ‘You Should Be Dancing’.

The clip sees Dave Grohl and his bandmates performing the disco track while backed by a group of singers as flashing fluorescent lights further brighten the spectacle.

You can watch Foo Fighters’ – sorry, the Dee Gees’ – cover of ‘You Should Be Dancing’ above.

Speaking about why they chose to cover ‘You Should Be Dancing’ back in February for BBC Radio 2, Grohl explained: “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, ​‘OK… 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, ​‘OK, 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!”

Last week saw Foo Fighters share a short film titled The Day The Music Came Back, documenting the band’s recent New York gig at Madison Square Garden.
