  • Not everyone likes 'Glee,' including apparently Dave Grohl

    The “Glee” backlash is in full force, and Foo Fighters’ frontman Dave Grohl is leading the charge.

    “It’s every band’s right, you shouldn’t have to do f—ing ‘Glee,’” Grohl declared in an interview with the Hollywood Reporter. “And then the guy who created ‘Glee’ is so offended that we’re not, like, begging to be on his f—ing show… f— that guy for thinking anybody and everybody should want to do ‘Glee.’”

    The growing list of stars who refuse to join Britney Spears and Journey in getting the “Glee” treatment often send their regrets in similarly scathing fashion.

    Kings of Leon drummer Nathan Followill got into a Twitter war with “Glee”’s creator after refusing to license his music to the show. “Dear Ryan Murphy, let it go,” Followill Tweeted. “See a therapist, get a manicure, buy a new bra. Zip your lip and focus on educating 7yr olds how to say f—.”

    Damon Albarn of Gorillaz also declined to license his band’s music to the show, sniffing that “Glee” will be “forgotten in a few years.”

    Slash of Guns and Roses was the first to publicly turn down “Glee” creator Ryan Murphy’s overtures, “I draw the line at ‘Glee,’” Slash told Entertainment Weekly. “’Glee’ is worse than ‘Grease’ and ‘Grease’ is bad enough…When ‘Grease’ came out I was like, ‘Oh, c’mon, give me a break.’ Actually, I look at ‘Grease’ now and think: Between ‘High School Musical’ and ‘Glee,’ ‘Grease’ was a brilliant work of art.”
