Foo Fighters front Dave Grohl said he is relieved that Lorde is here for his girls so they don’t get into Miley’s stripper pop. He told Rolling Stone about first time hearing Lorde: ‘I was driving. My two daughters, Violet and Harper, who are eight and five years old, started singing along.
I was so happy and relieved that my two girls were singing a popular song on the radio that had some substance and depth, which I considered to be healthy for them as kids. I know that sounds kind of parent-ish.”
hen I first heard ‘Royals’ it was sandwiched between all of that other stripper pop. I was so fucking relieved. I thought, ‘Hey, this might be another revolution.’ When I met her I said, ‘When I first heard your song on the radio and my kids sang along I felt like there was hope for my kids to grow up in an environment which is more than just superficial.’
There’s something about her that represented or resembled the Nirvana aesthetic. She has an incredible future ahead of her as a writer, performer and vocalist.’
