Gorillaz Don't Want Their Songs On Glee

| Filed under: TV NewsMusic MinuteGlee

gorillaz wont allow glee to perform their songs on the show

Gorillaz may have created the Grammy-Award winning song Feel Good Inc., but they don't feel good at all about their songs being performed on Glee.

Here's what lead singer Damon Albarn had to say about Glee using their songs:

"We wouldn't let that happen. And not that they've asked us because they haven't, and now they definitely won't."

Albarn claims that shows like Glee showcase "a very poor substitute for the real thing.

More from Albarn:

"Those songs won't last like The Beatles by any stretch of their imagination. They'll be forgotten in a few years' time."

What do U think? Do Gorillaz make good points, or should they let Glee take a crack at Feel Good Inc?

    oh please, it's the record labels that own them. why say anything if they have not been asked. sounds like they are trying to get word out so that they are begged and eventually give in… kind of sad and pathetic



  2. 2

    Good to see some artists got enough integrity left and avoid having their songs butchered by the Glee cast.



  3. 3

    Smart! :D Love Gorillaz



  4. 4

    I agree with them. i dont like GLEE



  5. 5

    sounds like someone is seeking a little attention…..Glee has more viewers than Gorillas has listeners….sorry

    Re: marymeass
    They only mentioned it because they were asked during an interview about the show.

    I can understand why they wouldn't want their songs on Glee but why the nasty comment about how those songs won't stand the test of time like The Beatles…. of course they won't they are cover songs!!! They are put on itunes to make money not to showcase creativity.



  8. 8

    GO DAMON GO.



  9. 9

    Why on earth do they think Glee would do their songs?



  10. 10

    I wish people would stop thinking Glee is trying to be the next Beatles or something. It's not a band. It's not trying to win Grammys or break Billboard records. It's a TV Show with music. They sing covers. They're not suppose to be substitutes for the real thing. Is anyone that ever did a cover song trying to outdo the original artist? No. They have every right to not want their songs on Glee, but stop turning it into something it's not, and has no intention of being.

    I think Imatation is a form of flattery. Don't get mad get Glad….Let that sunshine in or should i say out of the bag :)



  12. 12

    I agree with Damon



  13. 13

    Good for them. It's actually THEIR music, not something given to them to sing written by someone else and meaningless.
    Re: marymeass – Well, obviously someone asked them about it, and they answered. Duh.



  14. 14

    The Gleeks here are hilarious! "There weren't asked" "They aren't try to be the beatles" "Kind of sad and pathetic""Glee has more viewers than Gorillas has listeners….sorry". You know what is sad and pathetic? all the people actually mad about these comments. Not everyone wants glee to do their songs and everyone is asking every band or musician this question. God forbid anyone not want some horrible autotune version of their song that won't even stand the test of time(that's what they were saying by the way). Some people do not want to sell their music to this show.I don't mind glee but the fans are fucking annoying. Yes because Glee has more viewers they are apparently better than the gorillas, yeah makes a lot of sense.

    Glee is terrible, good for them.



  16. 16

    Good on them. They don't need to have their music butchered to help boost sales.



  17. 17

    Glee is pathetic. It's a stupid show, their voices suck. Too much auto-tune, lipsyncing bullshit… it's retarded…



  18. 18

    Loves 'em! I agree with them! See, they ARENT selling out, Bravo!



  19. 19

    :D All I can say is Thank God.



  20. 20

    Good for them.
    I really don't understand the appeal of Glee



  21. 21

    And the Gorillaz will be remembered in a few years? Sorry but, as if. No one's paid any attention to them since Feel Good Inc. I will admit that I do like the Gorillaz and I'm not really a "gleek", but I don't like their cocky attitude about this.



  22. 22

    Re: mscalto – what's really funny is how upset YOU got over the comments. it's just a show and they're just a band. they don't have to want their songs on glee, but they don't need to bad mouth the show either. just like you don't have to bad mouth anyone who thinks something differently than you.



  23. 23

    Good!
    Fuck Glee.
    It's over-hyped & The Gorillaz rock for not bowing down to this shitshow.



  24. 24

    Thumbs up Gorillaz.



  25. 25

    I really don't think Glee would want their songs so that shouldn't be a problem.



  26. 26

    Good for Damon, he actually seems to care about his music beyond what it's worth.



  27. 27

    i don't like glee. also hate the gorillaz and the beatles

    Gorillaz music is pure shit. I couldn't even get through the whole album it was so absolutely terrible.



  29. 29

    Team Gorillaz. Fuck letting other people mooch off of your creations.



  30. 30

    Who cares. I never ever watched Glee at all, and I would never bother in watching a bunch of strangers and young nobodies ones singing songs in most of the cases people have forgotten. But I have to admit that the show is made for entertaining, and if there are people who entertain by watching these nobodies sing famous or fashionable songs, let them, whats the problem. Gorillaz are pulling the "divo" card lol



  31. 31

    In 10 years no one will give a fuck about Glee.
    Gorillaz HAS been around for at least 10 years so … there you go. And Gorillaz are critically acclaimed. If some of your readers would get off Glee, and Gagas cock they would know that.



  32. 32

    Re: Elizabeth Grooms

    … Do you not know who DAMON ALBARN is???



  33. 33

    Bottom line…

    The gorillaz are amazing, and they don't want their music to be butchered.



  34. 34

    yay! more bands fighting not to sell out on that crap show.



  35. 35

    not that theyve asked us
    nor would they ever have with or without this comment



  36. 36

    Re: chirality – sorry just because you like cartoons and crappy music doesnt mean that the gorillaz are actually good
    why dont you get off anime's cock



  37. 37

    Hahahaha look at has-been Damon trying to get attention. Well, he's on Perez and all press is good press, right? *sad trombone*



  38. 38

    Re: poorlittlerichiegirl
    Whoever was doing the interview obviously asked them. So they answered with honesty. Umad?



  39. 39

    Re: Elizabeth Grooms – You weren't even alive to remember Feel Good, Inc, so how do you know this?
    .
    Thank goodness Glee won't be covering anything good. They can do Britney and other terrible music and continue to sell their singles to people who don't know good music.



  40. 40

    Glee is terrible, Gorillaz are right dont sell out to all the lame hype



  41. 41

    They'll regret saying that when they see the songs go up on the charts and iTunes. Glee may not be realistic but it's good publicity.



  42. 42

    Damon has been asked this in an interview, he's not saying this for attention or something.
    And Gorillaz and Glee are two very different things, I don't think Glee should cover their songs, not because I hate Glee, just because it… wouldn't be right.



  43. 43

    Whatever; the Gorillaz haven't been relevant in years.



  44. 44

    This breaks my heart cuz GLEE+Feel Good Inc. would be awesome im sad Gorrilaz are acting like this



  45. 45

    Speaking of being forgotten in a few years time…Gorillaz are coming to Detroit tonight, I work right next door to the venue and I have been trying to explain for the last week who they even are to a solid 80% of people who come in… It's sad they would comment so negatively on Glee. Glee has brought life to so many forgotten songs… maybe they should be the ones approaching Glee Execs?



  46. 46

    omg agreed, im so sick of that bitch lea! GLEE!DIE ALREADY U SUCK!



  47. 47

    I love Gorillaz! I don't watch Glee, not my thing really. All I know, Gorillaz's are not suitable material, Glee is too commercial & main stream.



  48. 48

    Re: Fletcher – then why bother commmenting?
    Personally, I think its fine if the Gorillaz don't want their songs on glee, their songs are awesome enough as it is, but its actually smart to have them on glee-every song that's been on there has rebounded in popularity. And the people on Glee actually have good voices, quite a few were on broadway before, but kudos to the gorillaz if they want their songs to stay originals
