* 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]]
