Dave Grohl Gets Birthday Serenade From Ethiopian Students

(Radio.com) Dave Grohl turned 47 today (Jan. 14). He received an early birthday gift earlier this week when a teacher posted a video of his students in Ethiopia singing a Nirvana classic.

Peace Corps volunteer Matt Westerberg began teaching his students at Yechelia Secondary School the lyrics to "Smells Like Teen Spirit" to help them learn English. The class wrote a message along with the clip that read, "Special birthday wishes to legendary drummer Dave Grohl."

NME reports Westerberg said he originally began teaching his class the lyrics to "Smells Like Teen Spirit" as a joke. "I thought it would be funny to have the kids try and learn it. They laughed their way through it. The next day, they demanded to try it again," he explained. "After a while we went through most of the song day by day as a motivational tool. At first it was all just a joke, but after awhile, the students began to really build confidence through learning the song." Check it out here.
