Break ClashMusic swear-o-meter

Foo Fighters have blasted the creators of 'Glee' claiming they will never allow their music to be used.

'Glee' is a phenomenon. The TV show follows a high school glee club, and includes some high profile songs. However woe betide anyone who falls foul of the acid tongue of creator Ryan Murphy.

Murphy recently took aim at Slash and Kings Of Leon after they refused permission to use their songs in the show. Attracting huge attention, the row seemed to centre on the writer perceiving a form of snobbery in their opinions.

Wading into the row, the official 'Nice Guy Of Rock' Dave Grohl has offered his opinion. Speaking to The Hollywood Reporter the genial drummer launched into a rant about the program and its creator.

“It’s every band’s right, you shouldn’t have to do f---ing Glee,” he explained. “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.”

Foo Fighters are set to return with a new album later this year, and have already sold out a series of summer shows at the mammoth Milton Keynes Bowl. However Dave Grohl did make some spare time to check out Glee: “I watched 10 minutes. It’s not my thing,” he said.

How anyone can get through ten minutes of Glee is beyond us, but we're not here to judge Mr. Grohl.

Finishing with a flurry of insults, Dave Grohl offered his opinion on the recent rows: “The Glee guy, what a f---ing jerk. Slash was the first one. He wanted to do Guns ‘n’ Roses and Slash is like, ‘I hate f---ing musicals. It’s worse than Grease.’ Then (Murphy's) like, ‘Well, of course he’d say that, he’s a washed up ol’ rock star, that’s what they f---ing do.’ And then Kings of Leon say, ‘No, we don’t want to be on your show.’ And then he’s like, ‘Snotty little assholes…’ And it’s just like, Dude, maybe not everyone loves Glee. Me included.”

At which point drummer Taylor Hawkins summed up the thoughts of many: “Yeah, f--- that shit.”

Foo Fighters are set to release their new album 'Wasting Light' later this year.
