Foo Fighters have joined Slash, Kings Of Leon and Red Hot Chili Peppers in not letting the television show Glee use their music!
Foo Fighters frontman Dave Grohl says,
“It’s every band’s right, you shouldn’t have to do fucking Glee.”
“And then the guy who created Glee is so offended that we’re not, like, begging to be on his fucking show… fuck that guy for thinking anybody and everybody should want to do Glee.”
“I watched 10 minutes. It’s not my thing.”
Taylor Hawkins chipped in with, “Yeah, fuck that shit” just to make things crystal clear.
Glee wanted to do Guns N’ Roses and Slash is like, “I hate fucking musicals. It’s worse than Grease.”
Ryan Murphy went on to say, “Well, of course he’d say that, he’s a washed up ol’ rock star, that’s what they fucking do.”
Kings Of Leon also rejected Ryan Murphy politely, “No, we don’t want to be on your show.”
Ryan Murphy, upset that the band didn’t want their music on his show then called them, “Snotty little assholes” and in January, he publicly stated, “Fuck you, Kings Of Leon.”
“They’re self-centered assholes, and they missed the big picture. They missed that a seven-year-old kid can see someone close to their age signing a Kings Of Leon song, which can maybe make them want to join a Glee club or pick up a musical instrument.”
“It’s like, OK, hate an arts education. You can make fun of Glee all you want, but at its heart, what we really do is turn kids to music.”
Kings Of Leon drummer, Nathan Followill struck back, “Dear Ryan Murphy, let it go. See a therapist, get a manicure.”
Lead singer of the Red Hot Chili Peppers, Anthony Kiedis, admitted to HollywoodLife.com he’s barely heard of Glee and isn’t interested at all in letting the cast sing his songs.
“Generally speaking, I’ve got nothing against Glee or any of those American Idol type shows, but music that is near and dear to our hearts and the people we wrote it for and play it for, it doesn’t make sense to be seen in a television format.”
“It just seems emotionally displaced.”
Ryan Murphy is still finding it hard to figure out why bands don’t want their music to be on his show which he claims is about musical education.
