The Fratellis have turned down a chance to record the official song for David Beckham‘s first game as an LA Galaxy player.
The Scots, who were asked to re-record The Beatles‘ ‘Hello Goodbye’ for the July football match, reportedly said, “No fucking way,” according to Dotmusic.
“We’ve turned down a huge list of ridiculous things like that,” said frontman Jon Fratelli. “We’re not a bunch of travelling salesmen. If we don’t get successful on our own terms then we won’t do it at all.”
He added: “We were like, ‘No fucking way.’ It would have got us noticed, of course, but we’d have lost our self-respect.”
