Dave Grohl Recalls Daughter Virginia Quoting Nirvana at 6th Grade Graduation in 'From Cradle to Stage' Finale

The finale episode drops Thursday, June 10 on Paramount+. In Toronto, Dave and Virginia Grohl meet Rush frontman Geddy Lee and his mother Mary Weinrib, a strong and inspiring Holocaust survivor. In Los Angeles, Virginia gathers together a number of mothers of famous musicians for a once-in-a-lifetime dinner party reunion, where Dave and his daughter Violet perform.

Video Transcript

DAVE GROHL: So I thought, well, maybe I'll have my daughter sing a song. She's in her Nirvana phase right now. Has nothing to do with me. Like in her sixth grade graduation each kid goes up to give a speech. Kids are picking Obama quotes and Oprah quotes. And Violet goes up there she goes, my quote is from Kurt Cobain. I'd rather be hated for who I am than loved for who I am not. In front of the whole auditorium. And I'm just like, oh my God. So I said, OK, well, what song do you want to do? "Heart Shaped Box," yeah.

GEDDY LEE: Wow.

DAVE GROHL: Yeah, the darkest one. I was like, where did I go wrong?

VIOLET GROHL: (SINGING) She eyes me like a Pisces when I am weak.

DAVE GROHL: But she's not used to being the lead singer of a band. She gets up there in her thrift store sweater and her jeans. Just kind of held on.

VIOLET GROHL: (SINGING) Hey, wait I got a new complaint. Forever in debt to your priceless advice. Hey, wait I got a new complaint. Forever--

DAVE GROHL: And then the LA Times review comes out it's like, Violet Grohl steals the show. I mean I couldn't be more proud.

VIOLET GROHL: Thank you.

DAVE GROHL: And then I had to drive her to the bus stop on Monday. Like, have fun at school.
