Unlike the much clicked on & commented upon Charles Reece penned post Diamanda Galás Hates The Foo Fighters, this Amoeblog has nothing to do with Diamanda Galás but it does have something to do with her nemesis Dave Grohl. As reported last evening by the Hollywood Reporter, the Foo Fighters' frontman and his bandmates share the view held by such other rockers as the Kings of Leon and Slash in that he does not want his band's music used on the popular TV show Glee, and is willing to get into a licensing battle if needed to ensure that the Foos' music never ends up as a Glee musical number. 

"It’s every band’s right, you shouldn’t have to do fucking Glee,” Grohl told the Hollywood Reporter in Austin at SXSW this week following the premiere screening of the band's new documentary Foo Fighters: Back and Forth. “And then the guy who created Glee [Ryan Murphy] 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," Grohl told the Reporter, echoing a similar sentiment by Guns N Roses' former guitarist Slash from two months ago.

In January when asked by Entertainment Weekly how he would feel about GnR music being utilized by Glee, Slash pulled no punches when he replied, "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."
