Patrick Carney (Black Keys) Has Words For Nickelback

The Black Keys

Black Keys have never been a band to stay quiet regarding the current state of Rock and Roll. In this issue of Rolling Stone, drummer Patrick Carney goes off the chart explaining why Nickelback are a complete waste of airtime. Read the hilarious excerpt from the interview right here and comment with your thoughts.

This made my day a little bit better so we hope you get a laugh out of this…

“Rock & roll is dying because people became OK with Nickelback being the biggest band in the world,” he says, blowing cigarette smoke out the window of his rented East Village loft a few days ­before the band heads to L.A. “So they became OK with the idea that the biggest rock band in the world is always going to be shit – therefore you should never try to be the biggest rock band in the world. Fuck that! Rock & roll is the music I feel the most passionately about, and I don’t like to see it fucking ruined and spoon-fed down our throats in this watered-down, post-grunge crap, horrendous shit. When people start lumping us into that kind of shit, it’s like, ‘Fuck you,’ honestly.”

    Carney is such a big, ugly non-talented puke it cracks me up! He trashes Gaga last time he looked for press and now when he needs press for his new album again, he swings at Nickelback.  Quick…anybody…name 5 Black Keys hits?  BAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHA Didn’t think so!
