High On Fire Frontman Dogs Aerosmith’s “Dude”
High On Fire’s Matt Pike says in a new interview that he has utter disdain for the song, and he also doesn’t like Aerosmith in general.
“I’ve just always had this thing with Aerosmith. The guy sounds like a goat,” says Pike, before bleating. “‘Baaa, baaa, dude looks…’ It just gets under my skin. I have this button called the off button or the mute button that I call the Aerosmith button on all my stereos.”
“I just have this weird thing with Aerosmith, where I don’t even care what people say about their old shit. I think they’re the crappiest, most overrated shit band of all time,” says Pike.
I’d argue that point. But I feel like the Beatles are overrated, so, I’m a dick.
“I fucking can’t stand them,” Pike adds. “And that particular song gets under my skin to where I want to stab people. That band hasn’t done anything since the ’70s. And in the ’70s, which was their most redeeming era, they still fucking sucked.
“Two good tracks that just won everybody over, and the rest of their career has been a hot, heaping pile of dog shit,” Matt says. “I’m just not into Aerosmith, I suppose.”
