It's not the first time Dave Grohl has shown his support of Billie Eilish, previously comparing her impact to that of Nirvana when they started out.
"My daughters are obsessed with Billie Eilish," he said at the Pollstar Live conference back in 2019. "The same thing is happening with her that happened with Nirvana in 1991."
The Learn To Fly rocker added: "People say, ‘Is rock dead?’ When I look at someone like Billie Eilish, rock and roll is not close to dead!”
Speaking to Radio X, the Bad Guy singer said: “Can you even believe that? I can’t even believe that.”
She went on: “Are you kidding? He said rock isn’t dead because of me. Dude, I grew up on that shit.”
