Kings Of Leon have criticized their fellow Americans for their taste in music.
Drummer Nathan Followill insists that UK people are more receptive to rock music, while Americans prefer teen pop performers:
‘Most music gets ignored in the States unless it’s hip-hop or Hannah Montana or Disney music like the Jonas Brothers. Kiddy pop or hip-hop, that’s pretty much what America is. You may turn on the radio and you hear maybe one out of..
..10 songs that you’d consider decent. The UK is more open to all kinds of music. The fans are just insane in the UK, they are music lovers. You have
kids going to shows to see the bands, not going to a show to be seen there.’
