Caleb Followill's jukebox music

Caleb Followill expects Kings of Leon's biggest hit 'Sex on Fire' to be played on jukeboxes by drunk people for years to come


This article is from 2010.

Caleb Followill thinks 'Sex On Fire' will end up "like a Journey Song".

The Kings of Leon singer-and-guitarist thinks the group's best-known hit will become a rock classic and end up being a cheesy jukebox staple in years to come.

He said: "I've come to terms with it. Twenty years from now people will be sitting in a bar and it'll come on the jukebox and they'll start singing along.

"Then they'll wake up in the morning and go, 'Jesus, did I really do that?' It'll be like a Journey song."

The 'Use Somebody' singer initially concluded the song was a "piece of s**t" after it become a worldwide hit, but now thinks he was wrong.

He explained: "I said some things that I'm ashamed of. I hurt people who are genuine fans of the band because I was too embarrassed to look out from the stage every night and see people who weren't like me."
