Kings Of Leon ‘Pop Music Ruining World’

miley-bieber-sex-2Kings Of Leon told Sydney Morning Herald that popstars like Miley Cyrus are bad for the world. Mathew Followill: ‘Some pop shows I watch, it feels like the end of the world, it’s fucking awful. It’s not even music any more.

You would never want your children to watch [shows like that] and I can’t believe that younger kids, even teenagers are watching that stuff. It almost seems to be making the world a bad place.’ Jared on pop shows: ‘They makes me cringe. I can’t watch that stuff. Not even just because they’re taking their clothes off it’s the whole thing, the dance moves, it’s not good.’

Do YOU think people like Miley and Bieber are ruining the world?

    People like Miley and Justin ARE ruining the world, pop music don’t.

      More than communists, radicals, liberals, gangs, welfare leeches, terrorists? You really are over the top!

      • GentileJewel

        He didn’t say MORE THAN!

      • ivan

        Tt is over the top for this moron to condemn a kid he probably has never seen perform in person nor heard in acoustic performances. I have and Justin definitely is talented and lots of people in the music business agree with me whom I could name. He is a far more decent guy than a most rock and rap artists whose exploits you could google. Iggy Pop, for example, was a drug user who displayed his sex organs on stage yet Bieber is criticized for taking of his shirt. silly? yes!

      How fucking ignorant. How the hell are those two individuals ruining anything ? They’re not harming anyone just living their damn life. You kids on this site need to grow the fuck up and see out of Hollywood and your ”stars” who you hate cause it’s cool who’s actually ruining the world. Damn this comment made me laugh. Get a reality check kid.

      • GentileJewel

        You are the (Kid) Bitch! The person has sense at least! You on the other hand don’t! You think everything that can ruin is only physical? You are an idiot! You need to grow a Brain!

        Unfortunately, these kids will never grow up.

  • threelittlebirds

    Apparently they’ve never watched any hip hop videos.

    Should be called poop music these days tbh

      It is arrogant for rock stars like this group to criticize other genres on music. Classical music or country music enthusiasts might consider the music of Kings of Leon to be junk. Why not accept the fact there are different types of music to enjoy; why restrict yourself. I listen to everything from Bach to Bieber. I love Pink Floyd, Madonna,Metalica, and so on. True there is junk in pop but there is also junk in rap and rock.

  • RedneckAtHeart

    I wouldn’t say all pop music. There’s also a few “rap artist” that are running the music world into the ground. Kanye, JayZ, Lil Wayne, and a few I don’t know the names of… We need Biggie, 2Pac, Fat Joe, and the old Dre back..

    • Austin Ames

      Lil Wayne sucks, Kanye and Jay Z are good, you obviously need to listen to their songs more. Oh and Eminem rocks too :D

      • RedneckAtHeart

        I agree with you about Eminem, but the only Kanye song I like is “Gold Digger” <– Reminds me of my sister :P

        Other than that I'm not a fan and his new song suck major. I was a fan of JayZ's older stuff, but not really diggin the new tracks. I'm very school when it comes to rap as you can see.

        • Hov

          Jay Z was the man from 1999-2004 the old school was great and specially him working with So So Def artists :)

    Kings of Leon have every right to says this, cause they actually have massive musical talent. The music world has taken a few bad turns. But there is hope. Ed Sheeran gives us hope along with a couple of others (Jake Bugg is a good songwriter but his voice is kind of weasley) and I think Emblem 3 has a real musical future when they delete the pop from their music and go back to being themselves.

    • ivan

      Notice there seems to be little interest in them in comparison to a Miley or Justin? Most people probably don’t know who Kings of Leon are.

  • :)

    I’m sorry, who are these guys again????

  • ivan

    Sorry that guy is stupid. Why does he leave out those rock and rap stars who were charactarized by hard drug use, alcoholism, multiple partners , cursing , physical fights and stage trashing the years? Justin bieber is a choir boy next to a lot of those guys which I could easily document.

    • GentileJewel

      They are talking about worldwide image and recent events Dear! And he is No! Choir boy! Don’t disrespect them!

  • Wakeup

    This guy is dumb. What’s up with all rock artist thinking
    they’re the only ones with talent good lyrics and they’re some saviors or some
    shit? Only rock music for them is actual music? Why? What makes them think
    that? Their attitude is disgusting mostly and their fans as well. Pop music
    also has real instruments used, depends on the artist, not all is autotune with
    poor lyrics, R&B too, Soul and Hip Hop. They think they’re the only type of
    music that’s good? No. Runing the world? You know what’s ruining the world ?
    Not music of any type, it’s criminals, poor education system’s, economic
    crysis, racism and sexism, drugs and the rest shit. Oh and OU, obviously your
    13 year old writer forgot that Miley and Bieber aren’t the only pop musicians,
    why not mention Selena and Taylor, Demi or Katy and Gaga ? Rihanna or Britney?
    Their latest music is even good. So whoever agrees with him is simply biased
    and ignorant. Music is different taste, just because you’re not into that type
    doesn’t mean it sucks.

    • GentileJewel

      Again! Stupid Arrogant and Stupid Again!!!

        Why are you talking about yourself?
