In fact, according to Larry it actually got him fired from the series, saying:
When I presented before the director and producer of the show (which was Jason) Jason literally looked at me like I had two heads. It wasn’t bad enough we did the Rolling Stones. Now we’re doing the Spice Girls! “This is it. I’m out of here. I’m not renewing my contract. We’re getting The Cardigans.”
Then I had to look them up [The Cardigans] on MTV and watch for a while. Anyway, that’s what happened. That’s the show that I got fired over, that’s the band I got fired over. I had overstepped my bounds, I died on the Spice Girl hill.
