From The Hollywood Reporter:
Don’t count on hearing the Foo Fighters hit “Times Like These” on Glee anytime soon. Frontman Dave Grohl says he and his bandmates are squarely in the corner of Kings of Leon and Slash. As in, they want no part of the Ryan Murphy-helmed show.
“It’s every band’s right, you shouldn’t have to do fucking Glee,” Grohl told THR following the premiere of Foo Fighters: Back and Forth, the new Foo Fighters documentary which just made its South By Southwest debut. “And then the guy who created Glee is so offended that we’re not, like, begging to be on his fucking show… fuck that guy for thinking anybody and everybody should want to do Glee.”

Fight for your right to rock. On YOUR terms. I am not the biggest Foo Fighters fan, in fact I think their best songs are covers of Prince and Gerry Rafferty. But I respect their right to put out their music and control it as they see fit (I also backed Metallica in the Napster fiasco). So have a little tact (yeah I know, Me calling the kettle black) Mr. Murphy and don’t talk shit about the bands that don’t want to give you the rights to their music. You sense of entitlement little prick. Hello Kettle!
