In the most recent episode of Foo Fighters' album tie-in HBO series, "Sonic Highways," Dave Grohl and company took us to Seattle. Focusing mostly on Grohl's time in Nirvana and how he eventually began Foo Fighters, the episode featured a previously unheard solo demo by Grohl, titled "Hooker on the Street." Revealed by producer Barrett Jones, who said that Grohl had recorded at least 40 songs during Nirvana's last days. The track combines Grohl's signature gruff vocals with some Red Hot Chili Peppers' funk-rock and even a touch of James Brown. Listen to the track above.

Grohl also took some time in the episode to share his former bandmate Kurt Cobain's first reaction when he showed him the songs he had been working on. Grohl explained that Cobain "kissed [him] on the face" while taking a bath when he heard the first demo, and that he was initially "too afraid to be in the same room as he listened to it.”
