Crocodile Rocker Elton John has attacked Kings of Leon for snubbing the American hit TV show Glee. He’s told the Followill brothers that they should “lighten up”. Appearing on Late Night With Jimmy Kimmel, new Dad and gay icon John said that the band were “arseholes”.”It’s a compliment when someone records or does one of your songs. It doesn’t matter if it’s a bad version, it’s just a compliment, so I’ve never lost that thrill,” he said.

Kings of Leon had earlier turned down the show’s creators’ request to use a song in fear of “selling out”. However, in response, earlier this year Glee creator Ryan Murphy hit out at at the band, saying “Fuck you, Kings of Leon. They are self-centred assholes and they missed the big picture.”
