Dave Grohl is a rock 'n' roll legend, rock 'n' roll royalty, or whatever title is bestowed upon someone that has been a key member of two legendary bands, Nirvana and The Foo Fighters. It's not just his music that has made Grohl legendary in the world of music, it also has a lot to do with the person that he is, the way he treats his fans, and the fact that he will take a stand on issues and put the full muscle of his platform behind them to speak out. Also, he's a really funny guy that seems like the kind of fella that would be a blast to sit out on the porch with, drinking something strong from a Mason jar.
There's no single thing, or few things, that makes Grohl cool, but there are definitely a couple dozen times where he has done something that has left fans saying, "that is the coolest thing I have ever seen" or "he is the coolest guy ever!" Here are the five times Dave Grohl was the coolest guy in rock 'n' roll, in no particular order.
The Foo Fighters trolling the Westboro Baptist Church in 2011 prior to their show in Kansas City. The WBC was picketing the arena the Foo Fighters were playing because they were symbols of an industry that is "a microcosm of the people of this doomed nation… halfhearted, hell-bound, and hedonistic," according to UpRoxx. Dressed as hillbillies with fake beards and all the necessary gear, the band parked a flatbed truck in front of the protest and began singing a country song that WBC picketers were actually getting into until Grohl began singing "hot man muffins" as a lyric, and the cheers turned to boos.
