Dave Grohl discussed how President Trump has affected his lyric writing on Foo Fighters’ new album Concrete and Gold in a new Kerrang Magazine interview.

“I look at all of the different periods of time where I’ve written lyrics, and they all have their own references and different phases,” said Grohl. “This one came out pretty clear: I’m a father now, I have to consider a lot more than I used to, and I think I’ve realised we’re not all as free as we were before.”

“In every way. I mean, as the political arena started heating up in America before the elections, it became clear that there was so much more threatening all of our lives than I’d considered before.”

Grohl continued: “I’m looking at a candidate that has blatant disregard for the future environmentally, when it comes to women’s rights, diplomatically…I have three daughters that are going to survive me for decades – how are they going to get on unless there’s some positive and progressive change?”
