Dave Grohl: Lorde's 'Royals' Gives Me Hope for My Kids and the Future of Pop Music
The rocker, who recently performed with Lorde during Nirvana's induction into the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame, says that the New Zealand native makes music that his kids can listen to.


Dave Grohl has admitted that he's a fan of Lorde. In a new interview with Rolling Stone, the Nirvana drummer had nothing but kind words for the New Zealand teen and praised her for making fresh and smart music that his children could listen to.

"When I first heard 'Royals' it was sandwiched between all of that other stripper pop," he said. "I was so f**king 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.' "

The musician, who is also a member of Foo Fighters, added, "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."

Grohl then talked about his decision to invite Lorde to perform with Nirvana during the band's induction into the Rock & Roll Hall of Fame earlier this month. "There's something about her that represented or resembled the Nirvana aesthetic," he said. "She has an incredible future ahead of her as a writer, performer and vocalist."
