Dave Grohl classifies Foo Fighters as “dad rock”

Grohl also insists that the Foo Fighters have 'never been hip or cool.'

Many people believe that Foo Fighters are one of the coolest bands to ever grace the stage, but frontman and rock legend Dave Grohl wants people to know that they think the opposite.

In an interview for Whitney Cummings’ new Good For You podcast, Grohl disagreed with her complimenting the band when she referred to them as “cool.” “You know the whole dad rock thing,” he asks. “We’re totally dad rock.”
 


“First of all, we are all dads, and you’re right, we’re a rock band,” he explained. “Look, I’m 50-years-old, I have f**king grey hair… but you know, the thing is, I have never considered our band cool, and I like that.” Although the band has been awarded many Grammys and given fans hit after hit, the band insists that they’ve never been cool, and that’s where their success comes from.

“We’ve just never been hip or cool; we just really haven’t,” he added. “I think that the reason why we’re still here is because we do kind of disconnect ourselves from the popular stuff that’s going on, but also because, what the f**k do we care? I just want to f**king play music.”
