Some unlikely musician-on-musician-insults-in-history

1

An investigation of the history of musician-on-musician insults. What musicians might lack in verbosity, they more than make up for with vitriol. And UK musicians are far bitchier than US ones.

Boy George on Elton John “All that money, and he’s still got hair like a fucking dinner lady.”

  Elton John on Keith Richards
“It’s like a monkey with arthritis, trying to go onstage and look young.”

 

Elvis Costello on Morrissey
“Morrissey writes wonderful song titles, but sadly he often forgets to write the song.”

  Noel Gallagher on Jack White
“He looks like Zorro on doughnuts.”

Courtney Love on Dave Grohl
“As for that drummer, well, he’s hit on me so many times. He’s just a very very conflicted guy about me, which is why he continually writes songs about me to hear he ‘hates’ me more than ‘anyone else.’ Kurt loathed HIM more than anyone else (except a journalist) … He’s just sub-mediocre kind of [guy]who does this ‘nice guy’ nonsense.”

  Dave Grohl on Courtney Love
“She’s an ugly fucking bitch.”

 Christina Aguilera on Lady Gaga
“I’m not quite sure who this person is, to be honest. I don’t know if it is a man or a woman.”

  David Lee Roth on Elvis Costello
“Music journalists like Elvis Costello because music journalists look like Elvis Costello.”

 Lily Allen on Cheryl Cole
“Taking your clothes off, doing sexy dancing and marrying a rich footballer must be very gratifying. Your mother must be so proud. Stupid bitch.”

 Trent Reznor on Marilyn Manson
“A malicious guy [who]will step on anybody’s face to succeed, and cross any line of decency.”

   Kathleen Hanna on Courtney Love
“Where’s the baby? In the closet with an IV?”

  Paul Weller on Freddie Mercuryin
“He said he wanted to bring ballet to the working classes. What a cunt.”

Kurt Cobain on Guns N’ Roses
“They’re really talentless people, and they write crap music, and they’re the most popular rock band on the earth right now. I can’t believe it.”

  Nick Cave on Red Hot Chili Peppers
“I’m forever near a stereo saying, ‘What the fuck is this garbage?’ And the answer is always the Red Hot Chili Peppers.”

  Noel Gallagher on Kaiser Chiefs
“They play dress-up and sit on top of an apex of meaninglessness. They don’t mean anything to anybody apart from their fucking ugly girlfriends.”

  Rick James on Prince
“A little short ego-ed fucker who I had a feeling didn’t like people of his own race and wanted to be white and taller.”

  Mark “E” Everett on The Beatles
“John Lennon sings about peace because he’s a woman-beater. Hippies are so full of shit.”

 Robert Smith on Morrissey
“If Morrissey says not to eat meat, then I’ll eat meat — that’s how much I hate Morrissey.”

  Morrissey on Bob Geldof
“Bob Geldof is a nauseating character. Band Aid was the most self-righteous platform ever in the history of popular music.”

  Noel Gallagher on Liam Gallagher
“He’s like a man with a fork in a world of soup.”
