When it comes to Glee, it seems like music’s biggest stars sit in two camps: they either love the show and are willing to let them use as much of their catalogue as they want (Katy Perry, Lady Gaga), or they’re not a fan and want to keep their songs free from the Glee treatment (Slash and Kings of Leon, who famously had a war of words against the show’s creator Ryan Murphy). Now the Foo Fighters are joining the latter group, with frontman Dave Grohl telling The Hollywood Reporter, “It’s every band’s right, you shouldn’t have to do f**king Glee. And then the guy who created Glee 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.” It’s hard to believe that a show that’s trying to promote the positivity of music is causing such a divide between music artists, and bringing on such strong reactions. What do you think about Dave’s comments?
(Side note: the Foo Fighters will be performing at an exclusive show this Thursday night at a secret location on Sydney Harbour. They’ll be performing songs from their new album, Wasting Light, and the concert will be broadcast on Channel V on Saturday, April 2.)
