Wonder what Ryan Murphy will have to say about this. Foo Fighter Dave Grohl went off on Glee at SXSW this week, telling The Hollwood Reporter he’s frustrated with the idea that rock bands should be grateful for autotuned cast renditions of their hits. “It’s every band’s right, you shouldn’t have to do f—ing Glee,” said Grohl, 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. I watched 10 minutes. It’s not my thing.” Fair enough, but you just guaranteed it will be your 4-year-old daughter’s thing, Dave.
Though he left out Nathan Followill’s ill-advised baiting of show creator Murphy (“buy a new bra”), Grohl otherwise did a solid job of explaining the drama to drummer Taylor Hawkins. “[Murphy] 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 a–holes…’ And it’s just like, Dude, maybe not everyone loves Glee. Me included.” Said the philosophical Hawkins, “Yeah, f— that s—.” Looks like Gwyneth Paltrow may have another beef to settle!
