NEW YORK (AP) — The virtual band Gorillaz isn't exactly going bananas over the television musical series "Glee."

Lead singer Damon Albarn says he's not interested in letting the hit show perform covers of his band's songs.

He acknowledges that the show hasn't asked to use his songs, adding: "And now they definitely won't."

The group is best known for their Grammy-winning jam "Feel Good Inc.," which features De La Soul. They've released two platinum albums, and their latest, "Plastic Bleach," came out in March.

"Glee," the Fox series about a high school glee club, features cover songs from a slew of top artists, including episodes based on Madonna and Britney Spears.

Albarn says shows like "Glee" showcase "a very poor substitute for the real thing."
