Tigertailz Release 'Pipped It Popped It' Video
Tigertailz submitted the song to the judging panel, who choose a shortlist for a public vote, with the winner going on to represent the UK on May 14 in Sweden. But it was almost immediately rejected.
Guitarist Jay Pepper says: "Here it is people - the track the BBC and Eurovision 'experts' said wasn't worthy of putting before the British public. But the people have spoken - you can't stop the rock."
In his rant against the UK Eurovision panel, Pepper said: "Was our song even listened to? Who knows, but clearly the BBC and UK Eurovision Fan Club didn't think a song and image that celebrated David Bowie's Ziggy Stardust, Mott The Hoople, The Sweet and T Rex was worthy of showing the British public and letting them decide.
"And this is in a month when British glam rock legends like David Bowie and Mott The Hoople's Dale 'Buffin' Griffin died. A perfect chance to celebrate that great British era of music with a UK glam rock entry at Eurovision.
"They obviously know better. Well, their track record over the last five years proves this, doesn't it?" Watch the video here.
