In a rare show of humility, Kings of Leon apologised for their 2009 Reading festival appearance calling it their 'Kurt Cobain moment'.
The charming Southern rockers cursed at the audience after their performance was booed at the UK festival, with the band continuing to tweet abuse at fans for days after. But KOL frontman Caleb Followill admitted it was the band's fault for their crap gig, and he'd expected the crowd to love them no matter how they played because of their recent success.
"I took it out on the crowd, and at the end of the day it was probably our fault. Because of the success I expected everyone to [cheer] for everything we did," the recently humbled Followill told BBC 6 Music.
"That was my Kurt Cobain moment when I was hating the success and I was scared that people were thinking that we did this on purpose, that we made this record (2008's Only By The Night) so that it could be big."
Latest single by the boys, 'Radioactive'
