* CreatorWorship: '''Oh, Yes'''.
* CrowningMomentOfAwesome: After missing a jump off stage and breaking his ankle in June 2015, Dave returned to the stage in 15 minutes. In a wheelchair and with a paramedic bandaging his ankle, he continued to perform for the crowd.
* MemeticMutation: Dave Grohl is actually UsefulNotes/JesusChrist.
* OvershadowedByControversy: In December 2014, Dave finally got his first solo ''Magazine/RollingStone'' magazine cover. Sadly, that moment was completely overshadowed by the "A Rape on Campus" article in the magazine.[[note]]That story, wherein a student claimed she was sexually assaulted multiple times and her school covered it up, sparked a wave of social justice hand-wringing and (naturally) mass protests, but turned out to be so poorly researched no attempt was ever made by the author to talk with any of the boys accused ''or'' the police to corroborate her allegations, and independent fact-checkers quickly discovered the student had lied about everything that the magazine was forced to retract it and blackball the author. The University of Virginia, where the nonexistent rapes occurred, has considered suing for defamation.[[/note]]
