If you are traveling on AP then you need it. As long as you have a GC or a valid visa stamped in your passport you are good. Otherwise they won't even let you board your flight in the US.
If its too much hassle then just cancel this one and fly emirates or Cathay. At the end of the day the difference between getting the transit visa and just cancelation feesvwill probably land up being maybe 50 bucks.

Even with GC or valid US Visa, one cannot go out of the airport (that's what OP wants to do). OP, if you are a citizen of India, you need a visa to step out of airport. If you have a valid US Visa OR GC, you can transit through Heathrow but cannot step out of the airport.
