Clay Aiken refused service at Dave Grohl’s Indianapolis eatery

Clay Aiken being told by the manager "Dave doesn't serve your kind of people."

Clay Aiken being told by the manager “Dave doesn’t serve your kind of people.”

Clay Aiken is furious with Dave Grohl after being denied service at Grohl’s restaurant in the Circle Center Mall food court. Known for serving; “the best, the best, the best” Chicago Style Hotdogs in Indiana.

Aiken said “I was standing in line to get my hotdog when the manager came out and asked to speak to me off to the side.”

“I couldn’t believe what she said,” the ginger haired singer exclaimed. “She said Dave doesn’t want to make a big deal about it, but he doesn’t want to serve… well… you people.”

“I said to the manager, this isn’t the 1950’s! It’s a sad day in America when a gay man cannot get a Ten Inch long…Chicago Style Hot Dog in a Mall food court! You’ll be hearing from my attorney!”

The manager was clearly embarrassed. “Sir if it were up to me, I’d serve you. Mr. Grohl has given us strict instructions not to serve you or those associated with you. We reserve the right to refuse service to anyone. Have you not heard about the recent legislation passed by Indiana Governor Mike Pence?”

"It makes me uncomfortable to see that crap in public!”

“It makes me uncomfortable to see that crap in public!”

“Especially gays!” Aiken interjected.

The manager then explained. “Mr. Grohl has no problem with your homosexuality. He has a problem with people who become famous on TV programs like American Idol, The Voice, and America’s Got Talent. He feels you have killed rock music and doesn’t want you to have the hot dog.”

“I won’t feed into this hypocrisy,” said Grohl on a phone interview. “I will give a hot dog to a blind man at a Foo Fighters concert before serving an obviously open and flaming TV game show winner. People like Clay Aiken, Kelly Clarkson, and Daughtry have killed rock music. Let him go hungry, or there is a Panda Express right next to us. Take your show tune singing, judge voting, Americian Idol winning, ass out the door. We don’t need these kinds of people in here. It makes me uncomfortable to see that crap in public!”

Aiken left without further incident and, due to the recent legislation signed into law by Governor Mike Pence, has absolutely zero recourse. Attorneys for Grohl cited a quote from the great Ozzy Osbourne classic “You Can’t Kill Rock n’ Roll” as their defense. The quote reads, “’cause rock n’ roll is my religion and my love.”

  1. Phewww… I was relieved to see it wasnt about Clay Aiken being a ginger is why they didnt serve him. Because my best friend is a ginger and we didnt want to have to dye his hair just to get the best,the best,the best Chicago style hotdogs in Indiana. Now Ive been looking in my atlas and I cant find Chicago or Indiana. I thought Indiana was the capital of Chicago.

  2. i am NOT a fan of clay aiken, but i am no longer a fan of the fighters foo if this article is true. ….and i have often felt that if it were not for nirvana…well never mind… “time and time again” i’ve thought about it….in “times like these,” anything that can help a musician be able to actually earn a living doing what they love, is ok by me…as long as the “means” is not rigged. someone like taylor swift is born into a wealthy family and gets every opportunity to do everything she wants….music-wise. then there are the poor, like me. i got my son a guitar from a pawn shop when he was young….and even though being a contestant on idol didn’t get him anywhere (because the judges were stupid, except stephen tyler, who liked my son)…it was a chance…. my son didn’t want to do it at all…he HATES those shows, but he did it because i was unemployed and i’m disabled and i pleaded with him to try…he didn’t get a penny from it….but if it had helped him to get to a place where he could earn a living at making music, it would have been awesome and now?…. we are both homeless….and besides, we probably wouldn’t eat at your place anyway since we are both vegans….and you probably don’t serve anything vegan anyway.

    • Oh Brenda, First of all I hope good fortune comes your way soon. I didn’t come from any money myself. But I make a decent living playing a guitar. Give lessons, play gigs, Become a guitar tech, roadie, do solo shows. All great ways to make a living playing music.

      Second, DON’T HATE CLAY OR DAVE OR THE FOO FIGHTERS. This was written to make a point about the Freedom of Religion law that Indiana passed and was an excuse to legally discriminate against, well who ever ya felt like. The story is all false. Only the people are real. No hot dog stand, no refusal of service. Re-read it and see it was written with my tongue firmly implanted in my cheek. Everything is silly from the first word to the last.

      If someone can walk on to a million dollar stage with a professionally written song produced by the biggest producer and pushed and pushed by radio you have a hit. Simon walks away with most of that cash since you are on his label. It’s sad to say, but this is the greatest commercial for an album ever made. They have people believe this is how the music industry works. It’s not. It’s how TV works. there has been some great music out of some of these but once again, they have the best money can buy.

      Lets take Dave Grohl for example, since I jab him so often. He was a broke kid sleeping on couches and happened to find the right band at the right time and took over the world in Nirvana. That wasn’t handed to them. They wrote it, they recorded it. Someone believed in them and put some money behind it and crossed their fingers. When Kurt committed suicide Dave was left with probably very little. I think Kurt was the song writer. More than one million selling musician has come off the road owing more than they made. Managers, lawyers, advances, etc…all come off the top. Touring is paid for by the band, and a new band running support makes very little money. So it’s not like Dave could retire on his Nirvana money, Probably. I don’t know their finances but I’ve seen it a thousand times. What ever is left over the band splits. they probably made less than 50 cents a record.

      Dave put another band together, wrote some great songs and did it again. hard work and paying dues earns more respect from me than A TV show where they pick and choose from the good and the bad. The bad singers go through steps just like the good ones. Talented people are set aside because they don’t have a good story or they are ugly or fat. You have to have something to promote and make a connection. It’s not singing other peoples songs. Musicians are doing that all over the world every night.

      Our musical superstars don’t do this. The Dylans, Springsteens, Jamey Johnson, Steve Earle, Aretha Franklin, Lyle Lovett, Sting,… They would have never made it on Idol. they would have been turned away.

      This has left us with a gaping vacuum where songs that repeat the words “I don’t give a fuck” a million times becomes a hit. I blame the plastic Idol, Voice bullshit on that. It’s become so plastic that people will buy anything not even realizing it’s a piece of shit. Bob Dylan also wrote the “I don’t give a fuck” song. Only he called it “Positively 4th Street” and wrote a classic.

      Best wishes Brenda and good luck in the future.

      We need humor or to be able to laugh at ourselves or see the absurdities in life. A spoonful of sugar helps the medicine go down. As does charity, kindness, and the golden rule.

      Mo, in the time it took for you to reply to an obviously over the top piece of satire, you could have made a donation to the red cross. The country is going to hell in a handbasket and instead of doing anything positive about it you chose to ignore that and then take the time criticize me? Does your town need volunteers? Do the charities in your area need help? But you chose to spend it here by bringing your cloud of judgement and rain of piss over here. The people I know are good people, the people I see in America are good people. Hell in a handbasket? You have let people like yourself turn the world dark. The fact that people have rebelled is proof it’s not. But someone has to stand off to the side and drag their heels. That’s your part.

Dave has gone on the record saying that true music is made in a garage with your buddies playing on crappy instruments and sounding like shit enough that it somehow becomes great, not on a polished tv show where you are made “a star” overnight.

    That mixed with the fact that this article is SO OVER THE TOP unbelievable should make for a good read if you actually know your shit and can discern from true vs false. I’d say that anyone who jumped to a hate rant jumped to a pretty quick conclusion and has no witty bone in his or her body.

    I took this for what it is early. A funny piece that appeals to the slightly more in depth reader. it’s not about gays or big ol gay hot dogs, it’s about bad music and the “musicians” that make it.

Its mighty arrogant and ignorant of him to assume that Clay or any of the other winners were created by TV, For instance, Clay was a professional singer since he was 5 years old and sang in everything from musical theater productions to fronting a country band for years before he ever was on TV. He paid his dues just like Kelly, Carrie and Daughtry has. If only Grohl would educate himself so he wouldn’t come across so ignorant.

      • Tim, you do realize, that this story is completely untrue.

        But if you’d like to discuss paying dues. Standing in line all day and singing a few cover songs isn’t the same as hopping your ass in avan and travelling from gig to gig building a fan base. These guys hit the road, write an album, record the album on their own budget and then support the album by hopping back out and running the country.

        TV game shows, wait in line all day, are brought through a lot of loops before landing in front of three judges who look for the best looking person who can sing. They don’t pay dues like most. You say Clay wasn’t created by TV but how many albums did you own of his before he was on TV? Kelly? Daughtry? So come on TV did make them. Not because they are special. Because they fit your idea of what it takes to be a star. It has more to do with hitting the notes than making music. The judges like J. Lo have never recorded a track. They have that done, she sings it, they fix it so she sounds good and she has a record. She doesn’t sit on the couch with a guitar and a notebook. She pays people to do that.

        Superstars don’t have great voices all the time. Imagine Dylan walking in there. The voice of a generation, honored all over the world, heralded as a song writer extraordinaire. What if Idol was his shot? John Lennon, or Sting, Tina Turner, Stevie Nicks, The Clash, Tom Petty, Aretha Franklin (too heavy), Etta james (also too heavy) Paying dues? These people paid dues. Clay’s was handed to him along with the best songwriters and Simon’s contract that they will record only for him. Idol, the Voice… They are year long commercials for a record.

        I am a songwriter, pro musician who has been in that van, who has pushed songs, who has slept on floors before and ate taco bell because there was no money. 20 years of hard gigging and I do just fine. You can’t compare a kid singing in a choir or fronting a cover band paying serious dues. I never met him on the road. He was busy counting money.

        I’m not here to tell you what to like. Buy their music. Be happy you found something you like. It takes all kinds to make the world go round.

      • There you go again. He had 2 albums before hitting TV. He’s released 6 since Idol (including one of Christmas Hymns) with about half of them originals and some he wrote himself. Like I said. Don’t judge without FACTS. Try to contain your bitterness.

      • Tim my friend, you are way too involved over a point in the story that could have been anyone. Take it for what it is. If I was worried about facts, the entire story would be wrong. Fact. Dave owns no hot dog cart Fact. Clay aiken was never turned away. FACT under the new law passed by Indiana’s Governor this could have been an actual situation.

        Look brother, you came into my house, I didn’t yours. I have my opinion on “they fit the suit” stars. Just because your tastes are shallow doesn’t mean it’s right.

        Once again, how many of his pre-fame albums did you own before he walked into national exposure?

        But hey, thats another ball of wax. Read it again and realize it doesn’t have one bit of fact in this entirely made up story. My zoo. My monkeys.

        Thanks for stopping by though (no sarcasm) Follow me. You seem fun to spar with my friend.

        P.S. My neighbor has 5 albums out. Never leaves his house. Having an album out with a few tunes you wrote yourself doesn’t mean you are the next Springsteen. It just means You had the 900 bucks to have it printed.

  25. Hilarious. I had my doubts from the start though. Some of the comments are just as entertaining as this story. Others are just sad. Some people don’t even know how to live within their own “believes”! Go ahead and hide your bigotry behind your religion. We’ll see where you end up.

  26. look up Dave Grohl on wikipedia, he is a supporter or gay rights and active one. This is just dumb facebook tom foolery. I am not a foo fighter fan, but, lets be real, he IS a straight ally and should be supported for that. Forget this facebook BS

    • Hey Chris. If you read the article, it specifically says Dave is not against homosexuality. In fact the story isn’t about homosexuality. It’s about saying FU to a law put in place for discrimination. This is satire and in it’s very definition supportive of gay rights. I’m a straight man, very liberal, and a supporter of live and let live. If cats dig cats, and chicks dig chicks, who am I to say it’s wrong? I can only comment on the injustice in the state. And I thought it was kind of funny. I hope I didn’t piss ya off too bad. Re-read it with the smart-assery in which it was written.

      • hey dumbass, the law was not put into place to support discrimination, quite to the contrary. The law was put into place to protect people’s right to practice their religion and their personal beliefs. You dumbass liberals want to force all of your believes down everyone’s throat,and up peoples ass, pun intended. you’re constantly insisting that everyone be tolerant. as long as the tolerance is to support your deviant lifestyles and beliefs. As soon as someone disagrees with your perverted believes then you have no tolerance whatsoever for them.kind of ironic that your first recourse is to get attorneys and judges to force someone to tolerate your beliefs when you refuse to tolerate theirs. what up piece of s*** you are.

      • you may want to read your last comment and try to figure some sense into that yourself. You stated if cats big cats and chicks dig chicks who are you to disagree with that. you’re absolutely correct cats do dig cats, chicks do dig chicks, but cats don’t dig chicks and chicks don’t dig cats. Horses don’t go screw Cows and cows don’t jump the fence and screw the horses. if the rest of the animals on this planet started screwing their own gender, this would be nothing but I rock with water floating through space. I say let all the queers have each other…. in one generation you will die off because of your inability to breed and the diseases that your nastiness causes

      • Ms. La Luna, my favorite part of Tim’s logic is to “let the queers have each other. Within a generation they’ll be gone since they can’t reproduce”

        Tim must not realize that gay babies are born to straight parents. His logic may be a little off. I bet they let you vote, don’t they Tim?

  27. I read the message and I can’t believe that an owner of a restaurant would refuse a paying customer on the basis of how he or she made their money. He’s probably served alot of ladies of the night with those rich men that walk in, Just because he doesn’t care for how they make their money he should close his doors. Yes you do have the right to refuse anyone, but you just messed up bad. Bad judgement for business. I don’t own your music don’t intend on buying any but I also have an opinion and I just expressed it. I hope others won’t come into your business. and just so you know I’m not gay but I am HAPPY Clay if you read this spend your money in North Carolina we appreciate all talent from Carolina.

  28. If you folks don’t recognize satire when you see it, you really really need to log off and go back to listening to Britney Spears and watching Sesame Street because that it pretty much all you have the intelligence for.

    • Do you think it’s that? Or is it that we see so much of this shit that we believe it first. I’ve never had one of these go viral, so reading the comments has been…interesting. 99% get it. Indiana’s Gov. is a boob.

      What I find is strange is what people have been reading between the lines. We are so distrustful of each other and the shitty ways we treat one another that we’d just as soon believe it, and make the judgement without reading it.

    • Hey INTELLIGENCE, Take it as is my friend. If you came in on the story ready to hate and then smiled, then that is a success for me, and a little smile for you. If you came into it refusing to see absurdity of it all, then one, I didn’t get my point across or two the reader’s mind was made up and was blinded by anger.

      All these comments good and bad show me that basically, you all truly give a shit about a bad situation. How can you or I fault anyone for that?

    • Kerry, This is obviously a satire site.

      Dave Grohl has nothing to do with this. Dave is probably a good guy. Clay Aikens has nothing to do with this. He is probably a good man as well.

      Dave doesn’t own a Hotdog stand next to a Panda Express.

      As far as I know Dave is not a bigot, and I have never heard otherwise.

      Don’t throw away his music because of this. You’ll just feel silly when you have to buy it all again when you find out none of this ever happened.

    • Please tell me you didn’t just write the words… “i’ll never eat at your est.” over a clearly satirical , single story on the internet. Please tell me your clearly underfunctioning brain cells, didn’t percieve the story containing the premise that the lead singer of the Foo Fighters, who owns a hot dog stand (seriously?, that didn’t clue you in at all?) and he discriminates against reality show contestants. Get yourself a dictionary and look up the word racist.

      • Rheann, (great name) have you been to the mall since the “incident’? Hard times are in store Dave and his hotdog cart. This will be bad for him. Luckily some folks put together a kickstarter campaign supporting Dave’s bigotry against Reality TV. They raised 234,567 dollars for him. He’s buying a fur sink* (*Steve Martin – “Let’s get Small” 1978)

        🙂 Keyy’s catching a lot of flack, but lets not forget she/he wrote in because they were PISSED. That’s a good sign. Not reading my late night BS is where she made the mistake
