Glee Shooting Cannibal Corpse Themed Episode
In a recent interview, producer Ryan Murphy of cultural phenomenon and television hit series "Glee" let slip that the show will be doing an episode even more controversial than anything done in the past. While the program has fielded concerns from parents and religious organizations for devoting an episode to the questionable role model of Brittany Spears and having frequent themes of homosexual acceptance, Glee is about to be in for a storm of new criticism.
“We really don’t want to just do pop and rock songs, because those aren’t the only kinds of music that are relevant to today’s kids,” said Murphy, “With that in mind, we’ve decided to broaden our horizons and dive head first into something many parents are having to deal with these days: death metal.”
Murphy stated the show’s other writers and producers wanted to go with a more mainstream band such as Avenged Sevenfold, but he insisted that the show needed to further push boundaries. “I knew immediately that we had to do something more extreme to really get the audience’s attention, and the first name that popped into my head was Cannibal Corpse. This is a band that has caused controversy all over the world, and I want to explore in that in the episode.”
When asked if he had any worries about the cast, which normally performs music from pop divas and ‘80s rock acts, being able to perform death metal in a convincing manner, Murphy laughed and stated, “Matthew Morrison (Will Scheuster) definitely had a problem with it at first, but there’s no doubt in my mind that Jane Lynch (Sue Sylvester) could have a thriving career as a death metal vocalist. She hit everything perfectly. Honestly, she’s scary good.”
Details on the name of the episode and its airing date will be announced as they are made available.
