    HBO's series Sonic Highways was compelling viewing for music fans. Earlier this year, an outtake of the show from 2014 revealed the first-ever track recorded by the Foo Fighters' Dave Grohl. "God Looks Down" presented a somewhat high-pitched Grohl, recorded in 1990 — which prompted the frontman to joke, "I don't think my balls had dropped yet." Now, yet another outtake has helped to unearth a track from deep within Grohl's archives — and this time the tone is laden with a good deal more speed, volume and testosterone, helped in part by the presence of a Jerky Boys sample.

    Longtime friend, former roommate of Dave Grohl and Foo Fighters producer Barrett Jones unveiled the song, it's called "Rent (Jerky Boys)" and it's a feisty little number that clearly draws fond memories from Grohl as they relisten to the deeply buried tune.

    Jones, who heads up Laundry Room studios, offered a description of the track, explaining that it was a throwback number, recorded when the two friends were still living together in West Seattle in 1992.

    It has taken only 25 years for the Dave Grohl tune to finally seeing the light of day. For further interest to fans there are other outtakes featured in the clip. Elsewhere there's an early version of "Floaty, recorded three years ahead of appearing on the Foo Fighter's self-titled debut album.

    So, sit back and watch the new old song, and share in Grohl's delight at the loud, exuberance and a clip from a comedy act that entertained the boys in the tour bus all those years ago.
