Kings of Leon Turned Down 'Glee'
By PopEater Staff Posted Aug 18th 2010 01:31PM
Kings of Leon bassist Jared Followill says his stadium-packing rock band turned down a request for their music to appear on FOX's mega-hit 'Glee.'
In an interview with British music magazine NME, vocalist Caleb Followill adds he's never seen 'Glee,' but "apparently everybody loves it."
Song by massive acts ranging from Lady Gaga and Journey to Madonna and The Beatles have appeared on the FOX show. An episode focusing on Britney Spears' catalog was recently confirmed. But none of that matters to Kings of Leon. "We could have sold out so much more. We turn stuff down constantly."
One particular Grammy-winning Kings of Leon hit was a sought-after property for a film in the past. "We had some people call us up wanting to know if we'd allow 'Use Somebody' to appear," Caleb Followill says. "Next day, they called back and tried to put us through to the star of the movie -- I won't name names, but he's an incredibly famous actor -- to let him try and convince us to agree to do it. I was like, 'Man, don't even waste your energy.'"
Kings of Leon also turned down an offer from 'Ugly Betty.' "They wanted us to play ourselves. We were supposed to come in and help with some problem or other," says Jared Followill.
