Kings of Leon Were Sick of Kings of Leon

(Gibson) Over the past couple of years, Kings of Leon have become one of the world's biggest bands. Their 2008 album Only By the Night was a huge success, spawning the hit singles "Sex on Fire" and "Use Somebody," which each reached the Top 10 in multiple countries.

On the heels of such enormous fame came the cries of overexposure. Turns out, the band felt the same way. "We were all sick of Kings of Leon!" guitarist Matthew Followill told Spinner.com. "We couldn't go 10 minutes without hearing one of our songs, and we'd been on the road for two years. It definitely got annoying after a while."

That's changed by now. Although their follow-up Come Around Sundown, released last fall debuted as the #2 album in the U.S., it hasn't matched the radio play or sales numbers of Only By the Night. But it doesn't mean the Kings are done shooting for massive success. more on this story
