Too bad, they cut out the rest of the quote. "After Kurt died, I followed the lineage of his favourite bands and discovered all these great bands from the 80's. I subsequently left Trump tower, got the Black Flag bars tattooed on the base of my neck and lived in a squat with a bunch of anarcho-vegan punks and listened to a lot of Crass records. Mummy and Daddy were horrified especially when they met my lover Jim, a dreadlocked bassist in a hardcore band. In the end, I got tired of the scene because it felt corrupted and populated by a bunch of wannabes and sell outs. I moved back home, had my tattoos laser removed and decided to become a white supremacist with a line of clothing that exploits third world countries. It was a crazy time!"

This whole plebiscite is so fucked up I have slipped into an alternative universe where I'm having to stand up for equality AND Macklemore. I did not see that coming...

I like how they are self described "warped missionaries." It's rare to see such self reflection from pro-lifers these days...

This is so sad. I listened to both Badmotorfinger and Superunknown last night and was just blown away by how great they still sound and in some cases, better than I remember. While that run of songs on Superunknown from the title track to The Day I Tried to Live is such an epic stretch of great tune after great tune (interrupted by the lesser Kickstand), Slaves and Bulldozers will destroy all - it is a lumbering beast. However, the most upset I got was listening to Seasons off the Singles soundtrack, holy shit, that song seems sad now.

April 18, 2017 on Watch Korn Debut Their New 12-Year-Old Bassist
I hate to say it I was a teenage metal head in the eighties who owned both Justice for all and extreme tapes. My big jam was Gary Moore. Anyhow, even I was snobby enough to know that most of the hair metal was rubbish compared to Metallica etc but just having loud guitars was enough sometimes. However, even at my worst I wouldn't have listened to half these songs. It was actually Faith No More and Jane's Addiction (both considered metal at the time) which were my gateway into the Pixies and a whole new world of music opened up. Fun anecdote: on a school trip, a friend of mine asked the bus driver to put on some music. He gave him a copy of Master of Puppets and as soon as the main riff of Battery kicked in the bus driver ejected it and threw it out the window. Australian bus drivers in the 80's were not ready for Metallica...

March 23, 2017 on Justin Vernon Responds To Report About Brad Pitt’s Sad Bon Iver Listening Sessions
You're probably right but I'd speculate being married to Brody Dalle would be a factor. Being married to an outspoken feminist and immigrant to the US (sure, her story is different but I'm sure it resonates) and the extremism of Trump's view would test Homme's conservatism. I think anyone in the public eye would want to have their views known = we can see how this is going and if you're famous, you want to be on the right side of history when people look back at this appalling fucking mess.
