"It's every band's right, you shouldn't have to do fucking Glee," Grohl, 42, told The Hollywood Reporter. "Dude, maybe not everyone loves Glee. Me included. I watched 10 minutes and it wasn't my thing."

But the former Nirvana drummer directed most of his ire at Ryan Murphy, the creator of the Fox hit, who earlier this year made disparaging remarks about the Kings of Leon and Guns N' Roses legend Slash after they refused to lend their music to the program.

"The guy who created Glee is so offended that we're not, like, begging to be on his fucking show," said Grohl. "Fuck that guy for thinking anybody and everybody should want to do Glee."
