Thanks But No Thanks, Coldplay

By 06.15.10

“Glee” has become a worldwide phenomenon thanks largely in part to its ability to take well-known pop songs and make crappier show-tunes versions of them. However, not every musical act wanted the added fame and money that came with the “Glee” exposure. Two generations of musical gruel-makers refused:

“At the beginning,” [series creator Ryan] Murphy said, “a lot of people didn’t know what we were and asked to see pages (in advance), but I refused because I didn’t want to set precedent of them having any involvement. My favorite rejection was Bryan Adams. Coldplay and Bryan Adams were really the only rejections. But Coldplay called a week ago and said, ‘We’re sorry, you can have our catalog.'” [Yahoo via THR]

“No no, don’t be sorry. You can keep it,” said Murphy in my dream world. “We only want music that we can feasibly make crappier and gayer.”
