Coldplay Apologize For 'Glee' Snub

June 15th, 2010 9:09am EDT

ColdplayBritish rockers Coldplay have issued an apology to the makers of hit U.S. show Glee for turning down a request to use their music on the program - and they have backtracked by giving producers access to their full catalogue.
 
Creator Ryan Murphy asked the Yellow hit-makers if he could showcase their songs for a special episode, but the band turned him down.
 
After the success of a Madonna tribute show in April, the rockers have now admitted to Murphy they "were wrong" to have snubbed the opportunity and have offered him full use of their entire music catalogue.
 
Murphy tells The Hollywood Reporter, "At the beginning a lot of people didn't know what we were and asked to see pages (in advance), but I refused because I didn't want to set precedent of them having any involvement. My favorite rejection was Bryan Adams. Coldplay and Bryan Adams were really the only rejections. But Coldplay called a week ago and said, 'We're sorry, you can have our catalogue'."
