Dave Grohl Slams ‘Glee’ Again, Talks ‘Hot Buns’
Don’t expect to hear any Foo Fighters songs sung by the sugar-sweet voices of the ‘Glee’ team anytime soon. Back in March, frontman Dave Grohl spoke out against what he felt was unfair pressure for his band to allow their music to be featured on the hit Fox show, and last night (Sept. 7) he reiterated his stance during an appearance on ‘Chelsea Lately.’
“As a musician, you should be able to say no. You should be able to say, ‘No, I don’t want to do your show,’” Grohl told Chelsea. “Why should you have to say, ‘Okay, Glee. Take my song and turn it into a f—ing musical?’”
Grohl isn’t the first rocker to turn down ‘Glee.’ In January, ‘Glee’ co-creator Ryan Murphy asked permission to use a Guns N’ Roses song, but former guitarist Slash promptly nixed the request, calling the show “worse than ‘Grease.’”
In the same month, Southern rockers Kings of Leon got into their own verbal tiff with Murphy after they denied the show licensing rights. Murphy weighed in on the feud with a simple, “F— you, Kings of Leon. They’re self-centered a–holes.”
In his interview with Handler, Grohl also explained the Foos’ recently released steamy ‘Hot Buns’ video that promotes the band’s upcoming tour. He says he was inspired to make the trucker-inspired video from a real-life experience at a truck stop. “Those are really our butts,” he reveals of the brief nudity in the uncensored version of the clip.
