Gorillaz and Blur star Damon Albarn has warned Glee producers not to contact him about using his songs on the TV show - because he can't forgive them for stealing the Beatles' U.S. pop chart record.
Albarn has yet to be asked to be a part of the hit musical show but he insists he'll never agree to let his songs be a part of the programme.
The Brit is still upset by the fact the cast of Glee toppled the Fab Four's record for most appearances on the Billboard Hot 100 by a non-solo act earlier this year (10).
Albarn says, "Those songs won't last like the Beatles... They'll be forgotten in a few years time."
He isn't the only star keen to keep his tracks away from Glee - the Kings of Leon have already refused to let the show use hits like Use Somebody and Sex On Fire.

In my opinion the "record" set by GLEE is apples and oranges. GLEE is not a band. Records are far too often manipulated.Here are the stats for the "Home Run King." If you compare directly, Hank Aaron and Barry Bonds both had about 50% more at bats than Babe Ruth, so they didn't compete head-to-head.Babe Ruth: 8,398 at bats, 714 home runs, 2,062 walksHank Aaron: 12,364 at bats, 755 home runs, 1,402 walks.Barry Bonds: 12,600 at bats, 762 home runs, 2,558 walks.
