Glee doesn’t hear “no” very often, but the Kings of Leon boys say they have zero interest in being a part of TV’s golden show…awkward!

Glee is without a doubt one of the most popular shows in the country and has the 19 Emmy nominations to prove it. That doesn’t mean much to hot rock band the Kings of Leon though — they’d don’t want their songs to appear on the hit Fox show!

Kings bassist Jared Followill admits that he and the band turned down an offer to have their music appear on the show because they didn’t want to be sellouts! “We could have sold out so much more. We turn stuff down constantly,” he told told UK magazine NME. “We got an offer to appear on an episode of Ugly Betty. They wanted us to play ourselves. We were supposed to come in and help her out with some problem or other.”

He adds that having his indie band appear on the uber-popular show might have hurt ticket sales from REAL fans. Do you agree? What Kings of Leon song do you wish you could hear on Glee?
