Foo Fighters frontman Dave Grohl has only seen three minutes of “Glee,” but that won’t stop him from continuing to prohibit the hit show from using his band’s music.

On last night’s “Chelsea Lately,” Grohl explained his boycott. “At one point I read something that the creator of ‘Glee’ – who I’ve never even met – was kind of mouthing off about some friends of mine in rock bands,” he said, referring to Ryan Murphy. “I just think as a musician you should be able to say no. You should be able to say, ‘no I don’t want to do your show.’”

Grohl went on to clarify why he said “f–k ‘Glee’” in an interview with The Hollywood Reporter earlier this year. The message he was trying to impart was, “Why is that necessary for you … as a rock musician in your career [to] have to say, ‘Okay ‘Glee,’ take my song and turn it into a f****** musical.’

“That being said,” he continued, “I don’t know if it’s a good or a bad show. I just like rock music.”
