More than 130,000 people signed a petition and declared they would much rather not have Kanye West perform at this year's Glastonbury festival. The festival's organizer even received death threats over the booking. Foo Fighters frontman Dave Grohl, however, seems to have faith in the performance and said of it that "there is nothing more punk rock."

Speaking to The Sun, Grohl, whose band will also be performing at the festival, said:

I think maybe Kanye's personality might be harder to swallow than his music. But these are the moments that make for great moments in the history of rock 'n' roll. You've got more attention on that Saturday night set from Kanye than maybe anything else.

Who knows what will happen? He could walk out there and have 100,000 people bottle him on stage or he could walk out there and show the world that nothing else matters except for that moment. And I'm sure that is what he will do.

To me, there is nothing more punk rock than having him stand on stage in front of 100,000 people after thousands of people petition for him to not be there.

Glastonbury takes place June 24-28, so while we wait to see the kind of reception Kanye will receive, check out the complete line-up here.
