The Kings Of Leon Have Never Seen Glee

| Filed under: Music MinuteGlee

kings of leon still won't do glee and still have never seen the show

It's like Coldplay all over again - except Kings Of Leon have yet to admit they made a boo-boo.

Awhile back, Ryan Murphy's people went to the band to ask if they could use one of their songs on his hit show Glee. You might have heard of it, but guess who hadn't?

The entire band! So, their decision to turn down the offer was based off of nothing more than their own ignorance. Still, months later, they're still talking about turning the offer down. Guitarist Matthew Followill explained to sources:

"Everyone took it so seriously when we said no to Glee because it's everyone's favorite show. But we just had never really seen the show, we didn't know what it's about. They just said, 'Hey, do you want your music to be on Glee,' and we said, 'No, I don't think so. We don't want to.'"

Well, the real question is, do you want to now, now that you know what a MEGA force the show has become for not only themselves but for the artists they cover?!

    Glee is like the Kidz Bop of TV — they ruin every song they do. Not saying Kings of Leon are good to begin with, but the last thing we need is a horrible karaoke version of every song ever played on the radio.

    they're overrated douches

    i hope not. while i don't like kings of leon, the ares still too good for Glee. Glee absolutely sucks. sorry to break it to you, but MANY people are "too cool" for that annoying drivel. I remember reading that someone on Glee wanted to do Radiohead. Like Thom Yorke would let his music get disrespected like that.

    Who cares?

    These guys are amazing & I agree with them about not wanting there music on that show. Just because it's such a hit doesn't mean that they don't have the right to make there own decisions without public scrutiny.
    His singing is so passionate and he has such a unique voice that why/how would the Chorus Line top that????? Not everyone likes Glee :p

  6. 6

    Many millions of Americans have never watched Glee and never will. I don't much care for KOL and think they are very over rated but I agree with them. Maybe they don't want to whore themselves out and their desires should be respected.

  7. 7

    Believe it or not…not everyone has to like Glee.

    So what if they don't want their songs redone? Why does it matter?

  8. 8

    Glee isn't as great as you think it is. the only highlight is Jane Lynch. other than that, it's just karaoke 90210.

    I never seen Glee either… and I'm in no rush to do so.

  10. 10

    Am I the only one who hates KOL's music? I think they suck! That being said, I wish Glee would stick to redoing older songs. When they do modern songs, they just fall flat.

  11. 11

    They don't need a bunch of lip-synching actors on a shit show butchering their songs. I think they're doing well enough without pandering to the gay and teen girl crowd.

  12. 12

    stop crying about this shit show,the show sucks Bong Water

  13. 13

    And Jane Lynch's character is the biggest bully on TV, why aren't you condemning it? Oh yeah, she's a lesbo so it's ok.

  14. 14

    why the hell should they change their minds. noteveryone likes glee, i don't and i have never watched one episode. glee sucks, its horrible cover singing.

  15. 15

    Maybe they don't want their music…I dunno…ruined

  16. 16

    thumbs up to them

    Glee sucks.

    If you knew true music you would agree.

  17. 17

    Kings of Leon do real music.
    Glee doesn't.
    That's it.

    (Oh, and Perez wouldn't know real music if it bit him in the ass.)

  18. 18

    this is the lamest, saddest exuse of a rock band

    i love your blog, but honestly you're like a little child. so closed minded in a lot of ways :(
    anything you enjoy is "a MEGA force" and the people you don't like are sad, pathetic, lost people. you have to understand peoples opinions are different. ive seen glee once, for about 30 seconds, and it was boring. i'm sorry. teenage drama i dealt with in highschool mixed with overly preppy musicals..

    regardless, i don't like it. i like a lot of things, but just because i like them i don't call them a "MEGA force" .. you need to realize people beyond you have opinions and everything you love is not a "mega force" because you love it. i know how easy it is to be so wrapped up in yourself that you dont realize the rest of the world does not love everything that you love, but trust me, neither glee nor lady gaga are "mega forces," regardless of how much you love them.
    they are phases
    people will not talk about them in ten years.
    argue, but wait. and see.

    I never watched it the first season, but I knew what the premise was. How could you not with all the publicity they get? But it just sounds so pretentious to say things like that.

  21. 21

    Can we move on from this? They don't want to "sell out" by having Glee sing their songs, but if Gossip Girl wants to use like 4 of their songs in one episode, it's totally not 'selling out'. Can they shut the fuck up already?

  22. 22

    Why is every comment under this topic responding as if people are saying "GLEE IS AWESOME." Almost every comment so far is from people who dislike Glee. Perez likes Glee, it's his site. So what do you expect? I guess if you had your own website you'd cover shit you didn't like and say how great it was to please others? No, he's going to talk about what he likes and I think most people are aware of who Perez is and what he likes. I think Perez is somewhat of a hypocrite in many ways, so I'm not defending him. Just his right to put whatever he wants on his site.

    As for kol…their music is okay. However, it would be one thing if they bothered to WATCH and episode and then decide. But it was like "Oh, yeah we heard about it..nah." Makes them sound like arrogant assholes. If they went about it like "We got the offer, checked out an episode and thought 'No, that's not for us'", at least they wouldn't seem as douchey. And, Perez, I doubt they care either way still.

  23. 23

    Well Leopard, they let GG use their songs because they're friends with Ed Westwick so he asked and they said yes, try knowing ALL the facts. As for doing Glee I'm pretty sure even if they said no before seeing it, they would have said F@*K NO after seeing an episode.

  24. 24

    so what if they don't wan't to be on it? is it mandatory for everything band they want to say yes? definitely not. I'm pretty sure all the bands that turn it down is because they know their fan base won't appreciate it because lets face it..the people who mostly watch glee listen to pop or hip hop.

  25. 25

    What is "Glee"?

  26. 26

    I guess when you have bad taste and enjoy consuming crap programming such as glee, you simply cannot comprehend that other's may have superior standards and taste in television programming. Glee SUCKS.
    I tried to watch one episode when the show first came out, and quickly realised it was something along the lines of high school musical = for little kids.
    Any grown adult who watches that show has something wrong with them.
    It is complete crap. The acting is of very low quality, the writing is even worse. Don't even get me started on the singing.

  27. 27

    They don't seem like the kind of people particularly bothered about commercial success. I personally don't like their music, but if they let Glee cover their stuff they can kiss any respect or credibility goodbye.

  28. 28

    i've never seen a single episode of Glee either. just doesn't interest me.

    plus any show that think giving Britney Spear airtime like she's some freaking musical genius ranks pretty low IMO

    They turned it down because doing the show would be them being a sellout. Not to mention if they knew the show Glee, I'm sure they'd hate it. It's horrible.

  31. 31

    omg who caaaaaaaaares I'm SO tired of this ridiculous obssession with an utterly STUPID show! can we pls get over it? Perez, less GLEE more fun things pl!

  32. 32

    Re: Funkymunky – +1! i would never waste my time watching an episode. thank you!

  33. 33

    g;ee fucking sucks.

  34. 34

    Re: Caroline Morris – haha well said

  35. 35

    Re: hkit0510 – they have the right to refuse their musical rights, they don't have to check something out, especially as pretentious as glee. fuck off this is america.
