Fiona Apple refused to let Panic! At The Disco sample her track

Singer wouldn't clear the sample of 'Every Single Night'

Fiona Apple refused to let Panic! At The Disco sample her track
Panic! At The Disco's Brendon Urie has revealed that Fiona Apple refused to let the band sample one of her songs.

Speaking to Revolt TV, Urie said that the band's single 'Miss Jackson' originally featured a sample of Fiona Apple's 'Every Single Night', the opening track from her album 'The Idler Wheel…'.

However, Apple turned the band down and refused to allow her vocal to be used. "She was not having it, man, she was so bummed on us," said Urie. You can watch the full interview, in which Urie calls Apple a "bitch", by scrolling down the page and clicking 'play'.

Last month, Fiona Apple asked a fan to leave her gig in Portland, after being heckled with a cry of "Get healthy!". The singer-songwriter was approaching the end of a career-spanning show at the city's Arlene Schnitzer Concert Hall when, The Oregonian reports, a fan called out: "Get healthy - we want to see you in 10 years." This apparently left Apple looking "distraught" and prompted her to swear at the heckler.

Panic! At The Disco, who released their new album 'Too Weird To Live, Too Rare To Die!' last month (October), play a number of UK shows this autumn. They will visit:

Nottingham Rock City (November 17)
Edinburgh Picturehouse (18)
Manchester Academy (20)
London Kentish Town Forum (21)
