Kanye West’s Music ‘Sounds Like Hamster Turds,’ Sings Steel Panther
You know, we promised ourselves we were going to stop writing posts about rock stars making fun of Kanye West for his behavior at this year's Grammys. After all, it's been a week now, and the controversial rapper publicly backed off a bit from his critical statements about Beck winning the Album of the Year award over his friend Beyonce.
But this is too funny to ignore. Steel Panther, our favorite purveyors of heavy metal with a dirty sense of humor, have just posted a minute-long musical response to Kanye (embedded above), accusing him of sounding like everything from "hamster turds" to "donkey farts." They also one-up Kiss star Paul Stanley's "kick him right in the nuts" comment by adding steel-toed boots to the equation.
The always-outspoken West earned the wrath of many at last week's Grammy Awards, when he walked on stage during Beck's acceptance speech, and later said the acclaimed singer-songwriter "needs to respect artistry," and that "he should have given his award to Beyonce” (via the Daily Beast).
None of this seemed to bother Beck at all. Soon after the controversy broke he graciously declared, “I still love [West] and think he’s genius. I aspire to do what he does.” But Motley Crue's Nikki Sixx posted a link to an article entitled "No, Kanye, It's You Who Needs to Respect Artistry" with the comment "I couldn't agree more" on his Facebook page, and Doobie Brothers singer Michael McDonald really unloaded on West, as you can see below:
“When Kanye gets to a point where he can actually put a couple of notes together either vocally or two bars of valid music playing an instrument, then he might have a right to criticize somebody else. Until then, I think he’s just talking to hear the sound of his own voice.”
