Don’t expect to be hearing Foo Fighters tunes on Glee any time in the near future—the Dave Grohl-fronted rock band in one of an increasing number of groups to refuse to allow the insanely popular musical TV show to cover their music via high school glee club performances.
In case you don’t remember, here’s a primer: a few months ago, Kings of Leon denied Glee the right to cover their songs. Glee creater Ryan Murphy responded thusly (and totally doesn’t sound like a bully at all, you guys!):
“F**k you, Kings of Leon…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.”
To which Kings of Leon’s Nathan Followill responded, “”Dear Ryan Murphy, let it go. See a therapist, get a manicure, buy a new bra. Zip your lip and focus on educating 7yr olds how to say f**k.”
So there you go. And now, according to The Huffington Post, Dave Grohl has entered the slapfight fray:
“It’s every band’s right, you shouldn’t have to do f**king ‘Glee,’…And then the guy who created ‘Glee’ is so 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.’”
God bless you, Dave. You’re doing the Good Work. Looks like we’ll thankfully be spared an acapella version of “My Hero.”
What do you think of Dave Grohl’s comments?
