Re: Kings of Leon Music Will NOT Be On Glee

I've never heard of Glee, but I've just read a summary of it and it sounds awful. I have, however, heard of Kings of Leon, and I know they're awful.

Then you haven't heard the best songs, or enough of them that are good; I have, and I love the song 'Molly's Chambers' a lot. Maybe that's not enough, but it is for me.

It's quite a fun show, I've found.

It's one of those rare shows where the execution far, far, far exceeds the horrible premise. It's a fluke show. The only people I've met who disliked it and who've actually watched it (as opposed to simply saying they have) are those who went in hating the premise and didn't give it a chance despite watching it. Not surprisingly, most of them tend to just overcompensate in everything they do anyway, too.

Their loss. It's a fun show, especially the first half of the season.

Re: Kings of Leon Music Will NOT Be On Glee

Yet another case of musicians picking and choosing what they consider to be selling out. Theyre okay to whore themselves on every chat show on the circuit when their next album is coming out but god forbid they should allow a fun, cheesey, light hearted massive hit to use one of their songs.

Yawn. SO over KoL.

You really can't compare a band performing their own material as musical guests on chat TV to allowing it to be performed by other people on a fiction show. It's perfectly reasonable for them to distinguish between those two uses of their music and it's perfectly reasonable to promote yourself on chat shows if you are a professional musician. Performing your own music as a musician for the public isn't selling out, that constitutes a large part of the point of being a musician, as does selling your records to people.

No offence, but a lot of the complaints here just sound like sour grapes that people think this band is insulting something that they like, people should not take it so personally. They put a lot of effort into writing and recording their music, and they don't want a bunch of kids popping it up for a TV show, they want to control where it is used. So what?!

Re: Kings of Leon Music Will NOT Be On Glee

Kings of who? (I'm being serious here)

It's their prerogative to not have their music performed on Glee. I'm sure with the show's runaway popularity, they're having no trouble finding enough songs to fill the second season.

No, they're really quite bad.

They're also massive knobheads going by this story. Arty farty twats with ideas above their station.

The Kings are a southern rock group who broke out the pack in 2009. As for Glee, it reminds me of the second year of Miami Vice when TV Guide and USA Today would list the songs used in each episode. The USA Today had a special section for it in the Friday paper

Depends upon your definition of pack. I doubt Glee would have come calling without Sex On Fire and Use Somebody.
