Dave Grohl Tells “Glee” Where to Stick It [VIDEO]
Foo Fighter's Front Man, Dave Grohl, informed the creator of "Glee" just how much he hates the show. Grohl was recently asked by "Glee" creator, Ryan Murphy, to have one of their songs featured on the show. Grohl politely said no thank you and thought nothing of it.
“It’s every band’s right, you shouldn’t have to do f—ing Glee," Grohl told The Hollywood Insider. “And then the guy who created Glee is so offended that we’re not, like, begging to be on his f---ing show… f--- that guy for thinking anybody and everybody should want to do Glee.”
This isn't the first time that a musician has told "Glee" creator Ryan Murphy that they don't want their song included on his show. Both the Kings of Leon and Slash have also turned down requests for their music to be used on the show.
Murphy was not keen on the idea of the Kings of Leon not wanting their song to be used on the show. Murphy attacked KOL in a statement he released saying "F--- you, Kings of Leon." Murphy continued insulting the band saying that "They’re self-centered assholes, and they missed the big picture. They missed that a 7-year-old kid can see someone close to their age singing a Kings of Leon song, which will maybe make them want to join a glee club or pick up a musical instrument. It’s like, OK, hate on arts education. You can make fun of Glee all you want, but at its heart, what we really do is turn kids on to music.”
I have to side with Grohl on this one. You shouldn't be offended if a band doesn't want you to have their song on "Glee" or anything they don't want to be associated with. "Glee" may be one of the hottest shows on television, ratings wise, but that doesn't mean everyone likes it.
Personally, I would have lost more respect for Grohl had he allowed the song to be on the show. I like my rock to be just that, rock. Not a choir singing the song and making it poppy for kids. Last time I checked, kids enjoyed rock music too.
