Gotye Didn’t Like ‘Glee’s’ “Somebody I Used to Know”

I always find it interesting when an artist insults a television show’s rendition of their song, especially when the artist likely gave consent. In the case of Gotye, Glee covered his very famous song, “Somebody I Used to Know,” and Gotye wasn’t pleased, saying, “They did such a faithful arrangement of the instrumentals but the vocals were that pop Glee style, ultra-dry, sounded pretty tuned and the rock has no real sense, like it’s playing to you from a cardboard box.” Though I agree the performance was overly theatrical, I still think it’s in poor taste to publicly disparage their effort. Watch below to see the performance in question.
