Glee creator Ryan Murphy has publicly trashed artists like Kings of Leon and Guns n Roses' Slash for refusing to let their songs appear on the hit show, but now Foo Fighters frontman and Nirvana Dave Grohl is hitting back.
- "Itâ€™s every bandâ€™s right, you shouldnâ€™t have to do f**king Glee,â€ Grohl told THR. â€œAnd then the guy who created Glee is so offended that weâ€™re not, like, begging to be on his f**king showâ€¦ f**k that guy for thinking anybody and everybody should want to do Glee.â€
Murphy first went after the KOL after the band refused to license their Grammy-nominated hit, Use Somebody. Murphy said, "F*** you, Kings of Leon. Theyâ€™re self-centered a**holes, 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."
But Grohl says Glee is not for everyone. â€œI watched 10 minutes. Itâ€™s not my thing,â€ Grohl said. "And itâ€™s just like, Dude, maybe not everyone loves Glee. Me included.â€
Murphy's expletive-filled rant for the Kings of Leon was harsh enough ... but click below to see what he said about Slash!
After Slash said in an interview, â€œGlee is worse than Grease, and Grease is bad enough,â€ Murphy replied: â€œUsually I find that people who make those comments, their careers are over; theyâ€™re uneducated and quite stupid.â€
Are you team Glee or team Foo Fighters/Slash/KOL?
