Foo Fighters took a break from rehearsing their own songs to create a mash-up of John Lennon’s “Imagine” and Van Halen’s “Jump.”

Foo frontman Dave Grohl posted the clip (below) on Twitter on Saturday (March 3). The hybrid starts with the delicate keyboard melody of “Imagine,” then Grohl stands at the mic sans guitar and sings the opening verse of the song David Lee Roth-style. After Grohl yowls, “Row-ow-owl with the punches to get to what’s real,” the rest of the Fighters join in with the musical accompaniment to “Imagine.”

Foo Fighters shot the video while preparing for their current tour, which continues April 3 in Porto Alegre, Brazil. The band’s North American tour begins April 18 in Austin, Texas. Dates are scheduled through October 18 in St. Paul, Minnesota. Check out the mash-up below:
