It's safe to say Glee won't be airing a Kings of Leon tribute episode any time soon.
In a new interview with The Hollywood Reporter, series creator Ryan Murphy holds little back when asked about the band refusing to allow the show to use their songs. He says:
"F--k 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.
"You can make fun of Glee all you want, but at its heart, what we really do is turn kids on to music."
In response, lead singer Caleb Followill basically said: Huh?!?
