Dave Grohl has once again sounded off against singing talent contest shows. His most recent comments came during an appearance at the TV Critics Association in Los Angeles this week, with the rocker saying that such shows set a bad example for the musicians of tomorrow:

"I don't want my kid to think that the only way you can be a musician is to stand in line at a song contest audition, and then wind up having a bazillionaire tell you you're not a good singer. Don't get me started. To me, that's not what music's about."

Grohl also spoke on the forthcoming Foo Fighters album:

"Like, I couldn't just write a three-and-a-half-minute long KROQ jingle and film it for the finale of an episode about the history of music in New Orleans, ya know? We really had to step up what we do. The music is a progression or an evolution for sure, but it's a Foo Fighters record."
