Foo Fighters star Dave Grohl has lashed out at Glee creator Ryan Murphy for assuming all musicians are desperate to feature on the hit show.

The rocker isn't a fan of the high school singing and dancing program and insists he wouldn't want to follow in the footsteps of Madonna and Britney Spears, who have had their songs used in the series.

And Grohl is fed up with Murphy slamming stars if they decide not to sign up to Glee.

"You shouldn't have to do f**king Glee. And then the guy who created Glee is so offended that we're not, like, begging to be on his f**king show ... I watched 10 minutes (of it). It's not my thing," Grohl told the Hollywood Reporter.

"Slash was the first one. (Murphy) wanted to do Guns N' Roses, and Slash is like, 'I hate f**king musicals. It's worse than Grease'. Then (Murphy's) like, 'Well, of course he'd say that. He's a washed-up ol' rock star. That's what they f**king do'.

"And then Kings of Leon say, 'No, we don't want to be on your show'. And then he's like, 'Snotty little a**holes...' And it's just like, 'Dude, maybe not everyone loves Glee. Me included'."
