Dave Grohl has taken aim at “Glee” creator Ryan Murphy for criticizing bands who don’t want their music on his show.
Dave Grohl isn’t interested in having his “Foo Fighters” songs featured on the “Glee” show and feels Ryan is wrong in thinking every artist would want their music used.
Dave told the Hollywood Reporter: “It’s every band’s right, you shouldn’t have to do f***ing ‘Glee’. And then the guy who created ‘Glee’ is so offended that we’re not, like, begging to be on his f***ing show . f**k that guy for thinking anybody and everybody should want to do ‘Glee’.”
Grohl became annoyed when Murphy had criticized Slash and Kings of Leon after they refused to have their music on the musical show series.
Dave adds, “What a f***ing jerk (Murphy). 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 old 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 a*sholes…’ And it’s just like, ‘Dude, maybe not everyone loves ‘Glee’. Me included.”
Murphy had called the Kings of Leon “self-centred a*sholes” after they refused to have their music on “Glee”.
Glee’s creator had said: “F**k you Kings of Leon. They’re self-centred a*sholes, and they’re missing the big picture. They missed that a seven-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.”
