‘Rockers’ Cop To Their Love Of ‘Pop’ Songs In A Round Of Guilty Pleasure Confessional
Word has it that Slash digs Katy Perry, Alice Cooper loves The Knack and Marilyn Manson has a soft spot for Justin Timberlake. So what?! Rockers big, and not so big, were asked by the Fuse TV network to spill the beans on their secret love of more mainstream pop music fare.
"'My Sharona' might be the best hook of all time" said Alice Cooper about the Knack classic, "Why didn't I write that?!" Manson jumps in praising 'Cry Me A River' by the one time NSYNC-er Timberlake before making some odd and seemingly rude comment about J.T.'s mother. Oh Marilyn...what are we gonna do with you?
Hard rockers Machine Head collectively seem to have a thing for 'Careless Whisper' by Wham! and one time Pantera drummer Vinne Paul spews his love of Christina Aguilera's 'What A Girl Wants.' Only Corey Taylor from Slipnot gets it right by saying "I don't feel guilty about anything I listen to!"
Music is not about guilt...it's about kicking out the jams. Now go on and crank it up, whether A1 on your jukebox is set to Motorhead or the Archies.
