Dave Grohl: Lorde's 'Royals' Is a 'Revolution in a Sea of Bulls--t,' Foo Fighters Frontman Slams Pop Music

Buzz 16:26PM EDT

Dave Grohl established that he was a fan of Lorde earlier this year, and he even invited the New Zealand singer to perform with Nirvana at the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame induction ceremony in April. The Foo Fighters frontman continued to praise the singer-songwriter in a new interview, especially her "Pure Heroine" hit "Royals." In an interview with the Red Bulletin, Grohl talked about why he and Krist Novoselic chose to perform with female lead vocalists for their Rock and Roll Hall of Fame performance. "Because Kurt was a feminist," he said about the band's deceased leader, Kurt Cobain. "And someone suggested Joan Jett. I mean, Joan Jett, she's the first lady of rock 'n' roll. She's the one. Then it was like, 'What about Kim Gordon?' She and Kurt were great friends, they loved each other and Sonic Youth were our heroes. 'Yeah, let's get Kim.'" "Lorde was my idea," he added about the pop singer who performed "All Apologies" with the band. "Her song 'Royals' is its own little revolution in the sea of bulls--t." Grohl went on to call today's pop music "superficial" and "devoid of meaning."READ MORE
