Five Songs We'd Love to See On Glee (and Storylines to Go With Them)

Last week, Dave Grohl of the Foo Fighters entered into a minor public spat with Glee overlord Ryan Murphy when he announced that none of his music would ever appear on the FOX-TV hit. Grohl is not the first rock star to issue a No Glee statement to the press-- Coldplay and Guns N' Roses did the same before him (Coldplay's Chris Martin, ever the Brit pushover, eventually relented).

With the Foo Fighters songbook currently unavailable to Murphy, we suggest five hit songs for the show and include story lines to accompany each.

5. "Rain On the Scarecrow" by John Mellencamp

Singing stepbrothers Kurt Hummel (Chris Colfer) and Finn Hudson (Cory Monteith) see their blended familial bliss upended when Kurt's dad loses his job and falls behind on the mortgage payments. After repo agents swarm their Lima, Ohio, McMansion, the family is reduced to sleeping in a station wagon near the railroad tracks. Increasingly anguished and unkempt at school, Finn breaks down one morning and delivers a searing rendition of "Rain On the Scarecrow," the Reagan-era protest song about the plight of displaced Midwestern families.

Glee club director Will Schuester tries to organize a fund-raiser musical for Finn and Kurt's family, but concerned school officials notify child services instead. The episode ends with Finn and Kurt dragged away by social workers into the foster care system, never to be heard from again.

The video for Mellencamp's tune, a staple of 1980s MTV, is above.

"-'Sex On Fire' serve as the incidental music to Kurt Hummel and his new boyfriend's first shirtless make-out scene."

Can this please happen? It would be so awesome.

The feud would eventually simmer down, but we think nothing would teach these derivative Southern-rock trolls a lesson like seeing their hit "Sex On Fire" serve as the incidental music to Kurt Hummel and his new boyfriend's first shirtless make-out scene.

NOW I NEED THIS TO HAPPEN.

I would need a food taster to watch glee for me first. I enjoy music, so.....But in any event, this is entertaining.

Any of these would be great and gift the world, I'd reckon, with the added benefit of all the Glee-heads out there claiming that the show jumped the shark and whining that the show is no longer targeting their demographic.
