Glee is a phenomenon. There is no doubt. From its humble beginnings covering great 80’s and 90’s tunes giving them a great rebirth to its ability to take a current Top 40 track and make it their own. Glee continues to make people smile and enjoy it’s music week in and week out and through certain episodes, spread a great message to kids and adults around the world.
With such a wide spectrum of an audience, its no wonder that bands and artists everywhere are pining at creator Ryan Murphy to have their songs covered by the McKinnley High Glee Club. However, some bands just aren’t up for it. Remember when Kings of Leon turned down the use of their hit Use Somebody? Ryan was none to impressed saying they completely missed the big picture.
Now, David Grohl of the Foo Fighters is coming to their defense. Despite Glee’s success and chart topping recreations and mash-ups, he just doesn’t want his band’s music to end up in the choir room. “I watched 10 minutes. It’s not my thing,” said David about the show.
When it comes to the Kings of Leon debacle, David had this to say:
The ‘Glee’ guy, what a f**king jerk. [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.
Yikes. Them’s some fighting words. Thoughts?
