BBC Radio 1 Boss Says Green Day and Muse's Music Isn't Good Enough to Be Played On-Air
BBC Radio 1 head George Ergatoudis banned both Muse and Green Day from being played on-air, Consequence of Sound reports.

As Alternative Nation points out, Ergatoudis spoke about both bands' presence on BBC Radio 1 in a recent interview with Music Week.

In regards to Green Day: "The last Green Day project simply wasn’t good enough."

In regards to Muse: "Muse are approaching a crossroads - their last single was the first one not playlisted by Radio 1 in a decade. The door remains open to them but we’ll have to think carefully about their next album."

As Consequence of Sound notes, the station's today's playlist includes new Arctic Monkeys single "Do I Wanna Know?" as well as Daft Punk's smash hit "Get Lucky" alongside with the other newest tunes, such as Jay Z's "Holy Grail," London Grammar's "Strong" and DJ Fresh's "Earthquake."

What do you think on this? Should be Muse and Green Day banned from BBC Radio 1 or should they be both played? Or should just one of them be played?
