He told Rolling Stone, "I hate f------ hipsters. Everyone talks about indie this and indie that, but would you really want to be one of those indie bands that makes two albums and disappears? That's just sad."
For Kings Of Leon the plan was quite different. Followill explained: "When we signed on with our manager, we all said we wanted to have a box-set career. We'll gladly be the next generation of bands that aren't going anywhere."
The Tennessee quartet certainly appear to be in it for the long haul having only found success in their homeland with fourth album 'Only by the Night'. Followill said: "The first three albums didn't do nearly what we thought they would. I thought our second album would be the one that brought everyone around and like, 'OK, these guys are actually more than just moustaches.'"
Not that the band made any concessions in their quest to break America. "The fourth album we just didn't care, we were just like we'll make the record we want to make and it is what it is and it's a win, win - if it becomes big and breaks us in America then so be it, if not then things can't get any worse."
