Dave Grohl vs. Glee
Dave Grohl really knows how to express how he feels about something. The Foo Fighters front man doesnâ€™t believe that a band should feel pressured to have their songs performed on Glee. The 42 year-old told The Hollywood Reporter, â€œItâ€™s every bandâ€™s right, you shouldnâ€™t have to do f***ing Glee. Dude, maybe not everyone loves Glee. Me included. I watched 10 minutes and it wasnâ€™t my thing.â€
Grohl wasnâ€™t only bashing the show itself, but the Fox hitâ€™s creator, Ryan Murphy. Earlier this year, Murphy ridiculed Kings of Leon and Guns Nâ€™ Roses man Slash because they refused to lend their music to the show. The former Nirvana drummer directed his anger at the previous blows. â€œThe guy who created Glee is so offended that weâ€™re not, like, begging to be on his f***ing show,â€ said Grohl. â€œF*** that guy for thinking anybody and everybody should want to do Glee.â€
Iâ€™m not taking sides, but I kind of have to agree with Dave Grohl. Why is it that Glee has become a cultural phenomenon? Itâ€™s not like it has to be a rite of passage for any artist to have their music on the show. Why canâ€™t music just be music anymore without having it be turned into an A cappella musical featuring Lea Michele?
