A while ago the Kings of Leon rejected an offer from Glee and didn't allow the use of their songs on the show.This was in the summer and created quite a fuss. Even Kings of Leon drummer Nathan Followill couldn't hide his shock to such negative reaction. But his choice of words to Britain's Mojo magazine about this just lit up even harder the anger flame on Glee bosses:
"Turning down Glee was like stepping on a kitten. We had no idea there was going to be that response.
"As artists... you have the right to turn down stuff and at the time it just didn't seem to be the right fit.
"No offense to anybody. Hopefully a show will come out about hot models in bikinis and then we'll let 'em use every one of our songs."
Apparently it's not ok for Glee creator, Ryan Murphy, who rages against musicians who do not provide their music to the show. And for them Ryan Murphy sure wants to make it very clear, specially for Kings of Leon:
“Fuck you, Kings of Leon,”
“They’re self-centered assholes, and they missed the big picture. They missed that a 7-year-old kid can see someone close to their age singing a Kings Of Leon song, which will maybe make them want to join a glee club or pick up a musical instrument. It’s like, OK, hate on arts education. You can make fun of Glee all you want, but at its heart, what we really do is turn kids on to music."
Now, Mr. Murphy, aren´t we going a little too further here?..How amazing was Fame which made a whole generation want to dance, sing and act and all it took was a great cast and their own songs.
