Dave Grohl reckons Lil Pump’s “Gucci Gang” is like a Minor Threat song
In a recent interview with Rolling Stone, Dave Grohl has gone and confessed his love for mumble rap wunderkind Lil Pump.
When asked about his affinity for the 17-year-old sensation, Grohl responded with
“Pat Smear and I had this conversation as we both became huge fans of Lil Pump, because imagine playing a Germs record for your father who was a classically trained musician. What do you think he would think? When I was a kid listening to punk rock, all I wanted was noise and rebellion, whether it was satanic death metal or industrial noise. If anybody dug into my record collection then, it’s like, “This is noise!” I love a good trap beat and a nice 808. And one of the things I love the most about “Gucci Gang” is it’s two minutes long. It’s like a DRI song or a Minor Thread song. Look, I’m not going out and getting face tattoos anytime soon, but if (Lil Pump’s) “D Rose” comes on, I am down”
This isn’t the first time Dave Grohl has professed his admiration for Lil Pump. Earlier this year, in an interview on the Brits red carpet, Grohl was asked what he’d been listening to recently to which he replied with “Lil Pump. That’s all I gotta say. Lil Pump. I’m not kidding man. I got sucked into Lil Pump’s world and I’m stuck. I can’t get out!”
One can’t help but draw similarities between the infections ‘Gucci Gang’ and Foo Fighters hit single ‘THE BEST THE BEST THE BEST THE BEST THE BEST THE BEST THE BEST THE BEST’. Compare the pair below:
