The Black Keys' Patrick Carney recently spoke with Rolling Stone and re-ignited his spat with Justin Bieber. The state of the music industry has me so cynical that my first reaction was, "but of course, they have a new album out to get hype around."
"I mean, Justin Bieber is a fucking moron. And that's the gist of what I was saying. And then he goes and says I should be slapped? Honestly, I feel bad for him. Every single person who works with him should fucking be embarrassed that they don't... No one is doing him any favors, you know? And honestly, I don't dislike his music.

The dude in the The Black Keys really likes to speak his mind. Um, more power to him I guess. Recently he called Sean Parker (founder of Napster and investor in Spotify) an asshole for "figuring out ways to steal royalties from artists."

After giving The Black Keys story so much press, we have to at least comment that Nickelback did respond via twitter. And they get some points for being classy.
Jason Tate on 01/06/12 - 01:26 PM
The Black Keys will be on the cover of the next issue of Rolling Stone. And they're not pulling punches. In a recently released excerpt, found here, the band takes direct aim at Nickeback. Personally, I love seeing this kind of honesty from artists. Plus, it always helps when the punching bag deserves it.
From the ArticleRock & 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...

From the ArticleThe new album doesn't sound like Brothers. It doesn't have that open soul feel to it. It's way more driving and the tempos are really fast.
