    David Guetta's "Without You," featuring Usher, is a massive hit. But that doesn't impress The Ting Tings. In fact, it makes them want to vomit!

    The duo, who will release Sounds From Nowheresville this spring, told The Guardian that they did not try to write hit singles. They said, "We would rather write songs that nobody's going to hear than write dance tracks that would fit on the radio after David Guetta." Singer Katie White was more vivid with her commentary, saying, "I'd rather puke on my own feet than that." Guess they don't dig the French DJ's fluffy and easy-on-the-ears pop hits.

    Jules De Martino said, "It would have been so easy to quickly bash out any old shit off the back of the first album. Get it on the radio, have a cheap nasty hit. And we didn't want to do that."

    Do you like cheap nasty hits? Or do you feel the same way the Ting Tings feel?
