Dave Grohl Allegedly Had Surprising Reaction To Kurt Cobain Hologram Nirvana Reunion Idea

Australian artist Lushsux has courted controversy again, after he painted a meme-inspired mural of Foo Fighters frontman Dave Grohl at Denmark’s Roskilde Festival last week.

The mural features Grohl’s much-memed ‘thumbs up’ face and the caption, “Like and repost this image and Dave Grohl will reform Nirvana with a holographic Kurt Kobain [sic].”

A few days after it was painted, Lushsux’s mural was painted over in white as onlookers chanted “SAVE DAVE GROHL”.

Lushsux reckons the mural was covered up because representatives for Grohl (who was performing at Roskilde Festival with Foo Fighters) allegedly made a complaint about the artwork. However, Roskilde Festival has denied that a complaint was made.

Lushsux tells Music Feeds that he was informed by festival organisers that Grohl’s management “wasn’t having” the mural, which was then painted over with the street artist’s approval.

“They painted it out because Grohl’s management complained, then offered me to paint a new thing,” he says.

“I think there was a whole ‘the Foo Fighters won’t play unless it’s gone’ kind of situation, but I don’t wanna badmouth the festival as everyone involved is a volunteer and genuinely good people.”

“They were bummed that it had to go, I think everyone bar the band knew it was just a piss take. Someone had to paint over it so there was no more trouble.”
