Grohl on TV talent shows: 'everyone sounds like fucking Christina Aguilera'

"I think people should feel encouraged to be themselves. That's what bums me out about those shows where people are judged so harshly by fucking music

"I think people should feel encouraged to be themselves. That's what bums me out about those shows where people are judged so harshly by fucking musicians that hardly even play an instrument on their own fucking albums. It makes me really mad." Grohl has said in a recent interview, regarding TV talent shows.

He added: "I swear to God, if my daughter walked up onstage and sang her heart out and some fucking billionaire looked at her and said, 'No, I'm sorry you're not any good,' I'd fucking throttle that person, I swear to God. Who the fuck are you to say what's good or bad?"

Grohl also spoke about when Neil Young was told he "shouldn't be the singer" of his band in the Buffalo Springfield beginning, arguing that "If Neil Young had listened to that person then we wouldn't have had any Neil Young". He added "  "The next time someone says you're not a good singer say: 'Fuck You'."

He also insinuated that the show makes music impotent and "everyone sounds like fucking Christina Aguilera."
