Dave Grohl is a guy who just does not need to care about being cool or being even called “dad rock”. The Foo Fighters leader appeared on the podcast ‘Good For You’ with comedy titan Whitney Cummings, recently and was happy to say his long-running alternative band is not ‘cool’. Furthermore, he does not care about being cool. You can watch the whole episode above.
Consequence of Sound transcribed the notable comment from the long-form chat:
“ I have never considered our band cool, and I like that. We’ve just never been hip or cool; we just really haven’t. 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*** do we care? I just want to fucking play music.”
