“It Sounds Like Hulk Hogan Is Playing Guitar” – The Black Keys’ Patrick Carney Rips Lady Gaga’s New Song

Lady Gaga may have brought the who’s who of rock & roll to work on her latest album, but that doesn’t mean Patrick Carney is an automatic fan.

The Black Keys drummer took part in a segment with VICE News Tonight where he would listen to a song and give his initial reaction.

He listened to Lady Gaga’s new track “Perfect Illusion”, which features Tame Impala’s Kevin Parker and was less than impressed.

He said,

“First of all, I hate guitars that sound like that. I’m lost because the guitar at the top of it sounds so s#&*@y. It’s like “Eye of the Tiger,” but not even nearly as good as that. It sounds like Hulk Hogan is playing the f*$&@^g guitar.

I met Hulk Hogan once, and he was really, really nice, and he did say this to me: “These fingers have never touched a fret. Been up and down the Florida coast playing rock‘n’roll all through the ’70s, never touched a fret.” I think that’s what he’s saying! He’s saying he was playing a fretless bass in a prog band or something. F*$(@#&g cool!

But the thing is, that songs’s growing on me. I’ve heard it now. That’s one of those things. That’s the thing about music: The more you hear something, the more you like it. That’s why payola worked.”
