Ahead of the launch of their fourth album next week, bogo-hillbilly, hipster-sensitive, indie-rock brotherhood Kings of Leon have hit out at freetards for failing to repay them for their toil.

Frontman Caleb Followill launched a broadside against internet pirates: "There are a lot of people online that say, 'these guys have a wonderful life, screw them if they don't want me listening' – you don’t know what it's like! Literally, sometimes I jump out of bed at three in the morning and go and write something down because I just had a dream and I thought of something."

Oh dear.

The wounded artiste wasn't finished. He explained: "You don't know what goes into writing a song, let alone an album. It's not a day at the office – you're putting your heart and soul into something and for people to not respect that, that's crazy. But when you have people that do it the right way – that's pushing your artform."

His brother and guitarist Matthew offered a less pious take on the travails of an international rock band: "We don't wake up, take a shot of Jack and do a line of coke. We wake up and start singing or playing guitar... and then we party."


Bunch of whiny bastards.

"Oh no, I have to get out of bed at 3am to write a cool idea! What to do?!?!? I'd much rather have a boring 9-5 office job!"

I put all my heart into doing the equivelant of fuck all, and nobody notices it

Edit: I should point out that I'm unemployed. How much does the average indie band earn a year do you reckon?

Wha'? I know exactly what it's like. I have to jump out of bed at three in the morning to take a dump if I've had a particularly potent curry the night before.

They complain about playing the guitar? How can you not see that's ridiculous? They don't have real problems or issues. These are tiny things comparitively to other people.

Doesn't matter what they do, its their livelihood and people sometimes have problems concerning their occupation.

I play guitar everyday for fun and they bitch about it like its a fukking job.

GTFO

Go bury your head into your overpriced linens on your overpriced pillow and sob your fukking heart out you pussy. I wish all those lyrics I have laying around and all those riffs I had sitting in my head made me rich and I didn't have to rot at work daily getting bitched out.

They have had tremendous luck getting as famous as they are. they get most of their money through live shows, and they have no right to complain about people downloading. It happens to every artist, and it's not like they're taking a massive loss.

And, saphrax > You.

EDIT: Nebiru said it better than I did.

That's the worst response I've ever heard.

And y'know what, i'm not going to get drawn into this anymore. Let's just say Kings of leon are crybabys, ClementWave's opinion is void and move on.

Nothing of me is original. I am the combined effort of everybody I've ever known.

And you're bitching about having to spend less than £10 to buy their music when people all around the world spend each night wondering when their next meal is going to come, or when their children will die of disease, or how they'll take care of disabled parents, or how they'll afford to pay for anti-retrovirals, etc. etc.

Go cry yourself to ****ing sleep. Everyone's got something to complain about, but since their complaint is about someone breaking the law, I'd hazard a guess it's 100% more relevant than the fact most people are ****ing cheapskates.

that's not relevant, Bono. They take their good fortune for granted and look for things to moan about.

No, not at all. I'm complaining that they whine about playing guitar and writing riffs, and not getting paid enough.

I'm more than aware of the struggles families face financially, I was bought up in a very similar family.

Also, no to having to spend £10 on their music either. I don't like their music at all to be honest.
