Dave Grohl Goes OFF on Glee, Ryan Murphy

by at . Comments

Foo Fighters frontman Dave Grohl does not want his music featured on Glee, nor does he appreciate bands being made to feel bad about this choice.

In a recent interview, Grohl dropped f-bombs on the Fox hit and its creator, Ryan Murphy, leaving absolutely no doubt about his feelings on either.

It's unclear what prompted his rant, but Grohl was likely inspired by Kings of Leon and Slash and their un-Glee-ful decisions to turn down the show.

"It's every band's right, you shouldn't have to do f--king Glee," he said. "Then the guy who created Glee is offended that we're not, like, begging to be on his f--king show. F--k that guy for thinking anybody and everybody should want to do Glee."

That about sums it up. But he wasn't even close to done.

"The Glee guy, what a f--king jerk," Grohl adds. "Slash was first. He wanted to do Guns N' Roses. Slash is like 'I f--king hate musicals. It's worse than Grease.'"

"Then [Murphy's] like, 'Well of course he'd say that, he's a washed up rock star, that's what they f---ing do.' And then Kings of Leon say, 'No, we don't want to be on your show.' And then he's like, they're snotty little a$$holes ...'"

"It's just like, 'Dude, maybe not everyone loves Glee.' Me included."

Bandmate Taylor Hawkins concurred, adding "Yeah, f--k that s--t."

Grohl, a former Nirvana member, admits to watching it himself. Well, once. For barely an episode. "I watched 10 minutes," he confesses. "It's not my thing."

Glee covers of hit pop tracks have resulted in some huge sales, but there remains a faction of the industry that isn't what you'd call enamored with it.

Before a legitimate war of words erupted, Kings of Leon passed politely at first, citing a policy not to sell songs for use in TV series and advertisements.

As for Slash, Murphy said: "Usually I find that people who make those comments, their careers are over; they're uneducated and quite stupid."

What do you think? Does Grohl have a point?

I don't get why Glee is so popular. I prefer to call it, DeGrassi: The Musical myself. But the creator needs to chill. If he feels Slash's career is over, why did he want Guns N' Roses on the show in the first place? He's just a petty man throwing a temper tantrum because he didn't get his way. I appreciate Dave Grohl not wanting to have his music on Glee and I wouldn't knock an artist for having their music on Glee and I wouldn't knock an artist for the opposite. It's his music he has every right to say no and shouldn't have to take a lot of BS for it.

Glee Sucks. Good for Dave - glad he was so harsh on that d-bag!

I watch Glee though I think Murphy is going power crazy. Why is it necessary to do Glee, it should be up to the artist and Murphy should take it like a man and move on. It is not the end all. Love Grohl but if Murphy comes out with another stupid comment about bands not doing glee than he has lost a viewer.

Thank you Dave Grohl. The creator of Glee is basically bashing artists who don't want to be involved with his show. Get over it. Glee, like other novelty shows, will blow away in a year or two.
