Dave Grohl rips Glee to Chelsea Handler

Dave Grohl discussed his comments about Glee with Chelsea Handler.

It’s no secret that Dave Grohl is no fan of Glee. The Foo Fighters frontman ripped Glee earlier this year, and now he’s talking to Chelsea Handler about his comments.

Grohl’s original comments stemmed from his astonishment that Glee creator Ryan Murphy badmouthed musicians for withholding permission for their songs to be used on the show.

“The creator of Glee, who I’ve never met — and I’ve really only watched about three minutes of Glee… I don’t watch a lot of TV — I read something where he was kind of mouthing off about some friends of mine in rock bands,” Grohl told Chelsea Handler.

“And I just felt like, 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 or I don’t have to do anything that anybody tells me to do.”

“Why should you have to do it?” Grohl asked. “Why is that necessary for you to do as a rock musician in your career, why should you have to say, OK Glee, take my song and turn it into a [expletive] musical. That being said, I don’t know the guy and I’ve never really watched the show — I don’t know if it’s a good or a bad show — I just know that I like rock music.”
