Guns N' Roses Turn Down 'Glee', Saying It's Worse Than Bad-Enough 'Grease'

have become the latest act to turn down "". The band's former guitarist Slash has revealed he and frontman were approached by the hit TV show's producers about a possible episode themed around their hits - but opted not to be a part of the Golden Globes-winning musical comedy series.

tells EW.com, "In the current climate of what's going on in entertainment these days, I try to be more optimistic than negative because it's really easy to get negative about it, but I draw the line at Glee."

"Glee is worse than Grease and Grease is bad enough... When Grease came out, I was like, 'Oh c'mon, give me a break.' Actually, I look at Grease now and think, 'Between High School Musical and Glee, Grease was a brilliant work of art.' "

Guns N' Roses aren't the only rock stars to turn down "Glee" - and also turned down musical tributes on the show. Coldplay have since reconsidered their stance.
