Gotye probably wishes Glee was somebody that he used to know.
“They did such a faithful arrangement of the instrumentals but the vocals were that popGlee style, ultra-dry, sounded pretty tuned and the rock has no real sense,” the 31-year-old told the Sunday Mail of the Darren Criss and Matt Boomer treatment of his song, which he originally performed with New Zealand singer Kimbra.
Gotye said the cover of the song that has over 170 million views on YouTube sounded “like it’s playing to you from a cardboard box.”
Glee creator Ryan Murphy doesn’t usually take kindly to criticism of his show, so he probably wasn’t too happy when Gotye continued to slam the cover version, telling the Sunday Herald Sun it “made it sound dinky and wrong.”
We’re guessing that there isn’t a Gotye special episode in the works for Glee right now.
