Since Glee has to obtain licenses for music, it’s a little hard to understand what he’s upset about. Was he expecting his voice-clone, Sting, to guest star and cover the song? In that case, I’m sure Darren Criss and Matt Bomer were quite a disappointment.
Gotye (Go-Tee-A) told Courier Mail:
“They did such a faithful arrangement of the instrumentals, but the vocals were that pop Gleestyle, ultra dry, [It] sounded pretty tuned and the rock has no real sense, like it’s playing to you from a cardboard box.”
