The Fratellis Turn Down Beckham Gig

Scottish rockers the Fratellis have turned down a deal to record the official song for soccer star David Beckham’s first match as an L.A. Galaxy player.

The “Flathead” stars were asked to re-record the Beatles classic “Hello Goodbye” for the July event, but turned it down fearing they would “lose their credibility.”

Frontman Jon Fratelli says, “We were like, ‘No f**king way.’ It would have got us noticed, of course, but we’d have lost our self-respect.

“We’ve turned down a huge list of ridiculous things like that. We’re not a bunch of traveling salesmen. If we don’t get successful on our own terms then we won’t do it at all.”
