Gotye Slams Glee Cover: “It Was Ultra Dry”

The verdict is in: Gotye was not happy with the recent “Glee” cover of his hit song “Somebody That I Used to know.”
“They did such a faithful arrangement of the instrumentals, but the vocals were that pop ‘Glee’ style, ultra dry, sounded pretty tuned and the rock has no real sense,” Gotye told the Sunday Mail.
The musician, whose real name is Wally de Backer, went on to say the track sounded “like it’s playing to you from a cardboard box.”
Gotye is hardly the first musician to diss the show.
