Gorillaz Says No Thanks to ‘Glee’

By: / October 12, 2010

Gorillaz lead singer Damon Albarn wants to make sure you aren’t waiting for his songs on Glee, cause, as he told the Associated Press, “We wouldn’t let that happen.”

In a recent interview, the Grammy winner says it’s not because the show has approached him, it’s because Glee’s diddys “won’t last like The Beatles by any stretch of their imagination. They’ll be forgotten in a few years’ time.” The singer added that shows like Glee are “a very poor substitute for the real thing.”

But why? Doesn’t he want their songs added to the growing list of ‘Glee’ songs that broke The Beatles record for most appearances on the Billboard 100 by a non-solo act last week, and all the while likely make a boatload of cash?

Apparently not.

Madonna, Britney Spears and even ex-Beatle Paul McCartney don’t share his bleak vision of the show, however, as they have all allowed the Fox show to have at some of their most famous songs.

Gorillaz is a virtual band comprised of Damon Albarn, who handles all the music, and cartoonist Jamie Hewlett, who animates the group’s music videos and who created the fictional “band” members in them. They are best known for their Grammy winning song Feel Good Inc. with De La Soul.
