Dave Grohl Says His Daughter Got Him Into The Misfits

As a veteran of the ’80s and 90’s punk scene, you’d think Dave Grohl would be a fan of goth-punk legends The Misfits. But he wasn’t – not at first, anyway.

Grohl says the Misfits weren’t his thing until his daughter – who he says “had great taste in music” – became a fan and forced Grohl to give them another chance.

He admits “Now I love the Misfits. My daughter made me love the Misfits”.

What’s a band you didn’t like at first but became a fan of? Are there any artists that you became a fan of because of your kids?
