This actually might be the quote of the year!  When The Drums’ lead singer was recently interviwed by Clickmusic, they asked him what it was like supporting Kings of Leon on tour.  This is what Jonathan had to say:

“I would advise them to split up and stop making music. I don’t think they’re  really helping anybody – they’ve never made a song that’s really touched me in  any way. I think the less bands that are making bad music, the better. I can  only be honest! I honestly think that the new Britney Spears record is better  than their songs – it sounds like a really great pop song and that’s what I  really like. They’re very American bar rock and it’s not interesting, it doesn’t  affect me at all. That Sex is on Fire song is one of the worst songs I’ve heard  in my life. I would advice them to call it quits, definitely the best thing they  can do. I do have to say that Jared was a very kind man and he’s smarter than  he’s letting on. I don’t think he really enjoys the music that Kings of Leon are  putting out. I’ve had long conversations with him and he’s very open to me. He  has really great taste in music and likes really great bands – I think he looks  at Kings of Leon and it’s just a job that he has. I think that’s a really sad  place to be – going through the motions and collecting a pay check, especially  if you’re doing something that’s creative you know. To misrepresent yourself in  a creative atmosphere seems a little dark to me.” – Jonathan Pierce
