Dave Grohl Is Cool

Over the last couple months, “Glee” creator Ryan Murphy has had clashes with some of the musicians who balked at the prospect of their songs beings co-opted for a high school musical and raped by the cast of the popular Fox show. And now Foo Fighters frontman Dave Grohl has delivered a righteous blow in the name of rock and roll:

“It’s every band’s right, you shouldn’t have to do f—ing Glee,” Grohl told THR... “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.” […]

Recounting anti-Glee comments made by Slash earlier this year and subsequent retorts by Murphy, Grohl explained to drummer Taylor Hawkins: “The Glee guy, what a f—ing jerk. Slash was the first one. He wanted to do Guns ‘n’ Roses and Slash is like, ‘I hate f—ing 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 f—ing 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.” [THR]

YES. Hey, I understand that “Glee” is massively popular, and I don’t mind musicians cashing the checks that “Glee” writes them. But I think it’s more than fair for grown men who’ve written rock songs to say, “No thanks, I don’t want Matthew Morrison’s curly hair helmet queerin’ up my song so it appeals to high school choir kids.”
