Kings of Leon reject LOS ANGELES (Hollywood Reporter) - With everybody from Paul McCartney to Madonna clamoring to get their music on "Glee," at least one act is refusing to license its music to the TV show.

Kings of Leon frontman Caleb Followill told U.K. music newspaper NME that he's rejected the show's request to use his music, adding that he's never watched the series although "apparently everybody loves it."

Followill also said the band turned down "Ugly Betty."

British rock band Coldplay also turned down "Glee," then changed its mind, apologized and gave the Fox show access to the band's entire catalog.

On the subject of lending the music of Kings of Leon to Hollywood, Followill added: "We had some people call us up wanting to know if we'd allow 'Use Somebody' to appear in the trailer for their next movie, and we turned them down."

"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 to convince us to agree to do it.

"I was like, 'Man, don't even waste your energy.'"

Excuse me for the double take, but no sooner have we read from Radiohead's bassist Colin Greenwood that they "have just finished another group of songs, and have begun to wonder about how to release them" and from guitarist Ed O'Brien, in June, that Radiohead is currently back in the studio putting the finishing touches on the "best album we've ever made" when drummer Phil Selway adds a cautious note that they "might just throw this all out."  Thom Yorke may well look puzzled.

Perhaps too much was read into Greenwood's comments in the article he wrote for Index on Censorship explaining why the band released their last album, In Rainbows, directly to the fans? In his essay, he wrote, "Three years later, we have just finished another group of songs, and have begun to wonder about how to release them in a digital landscape that has changed again." Later in the piece he added, "We have yet to decide how to release our next record, but I hope these partial impressions will help give some idea of the conversations we’ve been having." His article was never intended to announce the pending release of a new Radiohead album.
