Foo Fighters' Dave Grohl Slams 'Glee' Creator: 'F*** That Guy'

While many chart-topping musicians have lent their time and talent to 'Glee,' Foo Fighters frontman Dave Grohl won't be one of them.

The rocker told The Hollywood Reporter that despite the show's success, he won't succumb to the pressure to have his music performed by any of Lima, Ohio's show choirs.

When Kings of Leon declined to have their hit 'Use Somebody' featured on the show, 'Glee' creator Ryan Murphy announced, "F**k you, Kings of Leon. They're self-centered a**holes, and they missed the big picture."

Grohl says of Murphy's reaction, "The 'Glee' guy, what a f**king jerk," adding that he supports his fellow musicians who have declined offers to have their music showcased on the FOX hit.

After being approached by Murphy for the show, Kings of Leon singer Caleb Followill said that while he had never seen an episode of the show, "We turn stuff down constantly."

"[Murphy] is so offended that we're not, like, begging to be on his f**king show... f**k that guy for thinking anybody and everybody should want to do 'Glee,'" says Grohl.

"I watched 10 minutes. It's not my thing."

GOD I love this man! He couldn't have said it any better! Finally, someone who's making sense about all this pop culture going on. Tell 'em. TELL 'EM! I'm glad I've never seen any minute of that show! Why people love it I just don't understand...JUST LISTEN TO THE ORIGINALS PEOPLE! Smh!

Hey, sorry I haven't visited for so long. Trust me, I haven't been on blogger in months, hence no blog post :/ I missed so many blogging oppurtunities...Kurt Cobain's birthday alongside other stuff.
Anyway, I'd heard about Kings of Leon turning down Glee, and Ryan Murphy MASSIVELY overreacting. I honestly don't see why they have to be so stuck up about everything. If someone doesn't want to be on your show, GET OVER IT, don't have a massive tantrum and start saying stuff you're gonna regret.
But I simply adore Dave Grohl. I couldn't have said it any better myself. I love Dave Grohl, he seems so relaxed in all his interviews, totally at peace with himself, not superficial like lots of other people. And I love that he's got a family and everything but he still has time to rock out. Anyway, I loved this blog post and PLEASE carry on writing
