    In my world there would be no music on Glee.

    Although I like the idea of the show, and some of the covers that I've heard from it, I agree with Kings Of Leon.

    Good on them. Shows like that are the spawn of satin.

    They're signed to a contract with a GIANT entertainment conglomerate, they;ve already sold out.

    I'm sure GLEE will get along just fine without these guys.

    That's what I find interesting in this whole thing. "We won't sell out!" ... <whisper>..."to anyone other than this huge record company".

    Couldn't they just have said we don't want to license our music out?

    Because clearly they have already sold out and acting like they haven't is stupid.

    Or they truly believe they didn't sell out by signing up with a record company in which case they're just plain morons.,

    You're only selling out if it's for Ford, or for Clairol shampoo.

    There's selling out, and then there's signing to a record company. If you keep your integrity intact as well as your values when you're signed to one of the Big Four (Universal, EMI, Sony, Warner) then it won't really be a problem. The only thing is not letting your music be prostituted, and Kings Of Leon are making sure that won't happen by not having their songs used in commercials, or on Glee.

    Then just say "we don't want to license out our music" why even mention "selling out" that just makes them sound ridiculous. IMO.

    They should have just said, "we don't want our music used on a show for puffs and lasses" that always goes down well.

    Maybe they just don't want the ego crush from when the Glee version of their song outsells the original?

    Maybe it's their polite way of saying "We heard how badly they butchered Journey's Don't Stop Believing and we're terrified they'll ruin something we wrote and nurtured the same way"

    What I don't get about this, if it is an "integrity" problem, is why they bring it up about that song NOW.

    They're obviously NOT worried about other pop acts performing their songs since they let Kelly Clarkson sing a mash up of it at her concert that I saw last fall. Then again she also sang White Stripes and Patsy Cline as well. Maybe the difference is the whole selling it commercially afterward. So I don't think it's so much that the cast of Glee would do it worst or better than the original, just that they'd make money off it by selling their version.

    great, more aging hipsters spewing their aging hipster propaganda. how about not consider it selling out, but more like buying in, like the pops said in SLC Punk.

    You don't need permission to perform a live cover at a concert, or even to release one commercially on an album. Although in the latter instance you would have to pay royalties.

    Doesn't the club or venue pay fees to ASCAP for performers who play covers at the local bar or coffee shop?
