The band recently hit out at the state of pop music and they spoke about the sexualised performances from singers such as Miley Cyrus which have come under fire recently. "Some pop shows I watch, it feels like the end of the world, it's fucking awful," lead guitarist Matthew Followill said. He continued: "It's not even music any more. You would never want your children to watch [shows like that] and I can't believe that younger kids, even teenagers are watching that stuff. It almost seems to be making the world a bad place."

Bassist Jared Followill added that he finds it difficult to watch pop shows. He said: "They makes me cringe. I can't watch that stuff. Not even just because they're taking their clothes off it's the whole thing, the dance moves, it's not good."

The Tennessee rockers released their sixth album 'Mechanical Bull' on September 23. It became their fourth Number One album in the UK.
