Not Every Band Wants Their Music on ‘Glee’: One Band Explains Why They Turned Down Offer

Aug 19, 2010  •  Post A Comment

Not all bands want to have their music used on Fox’s hit "Glee," reports U.K. music magazine NME.

For example, one band that turned the idea down was Kings of Leon. The band said the reason is that if they had accepted the offer they would have been "selling out." 

The band also says it got an offer to appear in an episode of "Ugly Betty," which it also rejected. "They wanted us to play ourselves. We were supposed to come in and help her out with some problem or other," bassist Jared Followill said, according to the artcle. "We could have sold out so much more. We turn stuff down constantly."

  1. Oooooohhhhh!!! Aren’t they ever the hipper-than-thou-cool-cats that they perceive themselves to be?!?!?! They can go be the Kings of the (Leon) Hill and sit atop the pile of crap music like the rest of the losers recording “music” today…
    They suck! They are the Spin Doctors of the new millennium (ie. you won’t know whatever became of them by 2015!!!)

  2. You are correct, Alan. The Kings are an offensively horrible band with absolutely no redeeming qualities. They are an insult to music and will be completely forgotten about in 5 years. The fact that they have the gall to suggest that they haven’t / wonte sell out is ridiculous. In summary…They suck!

  3. Oh dear. Kings of Leon are undeniably a brilliant and influential band. (They are. Just accept it.) Which makes their pathetic ‘selling out’ indie ghetto comments all the more disappointing.

  8. Zune and iPod: Most people compare the Zune to the Touch, but after seeing how slim and surprisingly small and light it is, I consider it to be a rather unique hybrid that combines qualities of both the Touch and the Nano. It’s very colorful and lovely OLED screen is slightly smaller than the touch screen, but the player itself feels quite a bit smaller and lighter. It weighs about 2/3 as much, and is noticeably smaller in width and height, while being just a hair thicker.
