Ugh. And just after all of that nonsense finished with Kings of Leon!
Dave Grohl of Foo Fighters has decided to jump on the anti-Glee train, and while promoting his band's new documentary, Back and Forth, at the SXSW festival, he lashed out at the series and its creator, Ryan Murphy, for apparently pressuring various artists to allow their music to be featured!
“It’s every band’s right, you shouldn’t have to do fucking Glee. And then the guy who created Glee is so offended that we’re not, like, begging to be on his fucking show… fuck that guy for thinking anybody and everybody should want to do Glee. I watched 10 minutes. It’s not my thing. The Glee guy, what a fucking jerk. Slash was the first one. He wanted to do Guns ‘n’ Roses and Slash is like, ‘I hate fucking musicals. It’s worse than Grease.’ Then [Murphy's] like, ‘Well, of course he’d say that, he’s a washed up ol’ rock star, that’s what they fucking do.’ And then Kings of Leon say, ‘No, we don’t want to be on your show.’ And then he’s like, ‘Snotty little assholes…’ And it’s just like, Dude, maybe not everyone loves Glee. Me included.”
Whoa! Tell us how you really feel!
While we agree that it's every band's right to say yes or no, we frankly can't understand why it's such an issue for some! All Ryan Murphy is trying to do is create a new market for young viewers to be exposed to music that they might not normally be!
But to each his own, we guess! Their music, their call.
What do U think?? Team Dave Grohl or Team Glee?
