Young The Giant’s “Cough Syrup” To Be Featured On GLEE

Young the Giant 2012 Headlining Tour

Looks like Young the Giant has officially hit mainstream their hit single “Cough Syrup” will be featured in the opening scene of the winter finale of GLEE episode 314 entitled “On My Way” February 21, 2012 – 8:00 pm-9:00 pm EST/PST on FOX.

We are big Young the Giant fans and originally featured them as one of our Rocking Under the Radar artists back in November of 2010.

Young The Giant has garnered massive critical acclaim for their album and their energetic live performances at festivals and shows all around the world.  They just kicked off their sold-out 2012 headline tour in San Francisco on February 9, 2012.  The Orange County Register who reviewed the first of two sold-out nights at the Wiltern in Los Angeles said the band gave “…a totally mesmerizing performance.”

Young The Giant was the only rock band to perform at the 2011 MTV Video Music Awards, and have performed on MTV Unplugged, The Tonight Show With Jay Leno, and Jimmy Kimmel Live! among others. 

Their first single, “My Body,” peaked at #4 on the alternative chart while their second single, “Cough Syrup,” reached #2 on the alternative chart; “Apartment,” Young The Giant’s third single is continuing along the same path as it climbs up the charts.  Hear them perform these songs and more as their headline tour continues to move across North America through mid-April; catch them at Bonnaroo in June and at Central Park Summerstage on July 16, 2012.
