The song of choice this week? The Foo Fighters classic “Everlong.” The duo made sure to note in the beginning of the video that “no animals were harmed or mistreated in the filming of this episode, All handling was done under the strict supervision and instruction of a trained professional.” You can see the video below.

Willcox told NME recently that she started the series to occupy Fripp, who was getting really bummed out about not being able to tour. “Here I am in this house with this 74-year-old husband who I really don’t want to live without,” she said.

“He was withdrawing, so I thought: ‘I’m going to teach him to dance.’ And it became a challenge. I do the lighting, the filming, the conceptual side and the persuading Robert to take part.”

Here are some of the duo’s other recent covers:
“Enter Sandman” by Metallica
“Rebel Yell” by Billy Idol
“I Love Rock and Roll” by Joan Jett
“Welcome to the Jungle” by Guns N’ Roses
“Purple Haze” by Jimi Hendrix,
Tainted Love by Soft Cell,
“Poison” by Alice Cooper
