On Foo Fighters record-release day, drummer Taylor Hawkins has expressed his dislike for another band.
“It just kinda sounds like a fart any way you listen to it,” Hawkins tells theMusic.com.au on the topic of the new U2 album Songs of Innocence.
“What happened to U2, man? I don’t think people are that hyped on them… I mean, I think they probably thought it was gonna be a great idea, ‘Here’s the deal: everybody who has an iPhone, gets your record. And they get it for free!’ And they thought, probably, “Well that’s pretty awesome!” but they didn’t really take into consideration the Big Brother feeling that kinda goes along with like, ‘[In menacing voice] You have the new U2 record’ … You couldn’t get rid of it and they actually had to come up with an app to get rid of it, that’s horrible.
