Eddie Vedder and Nikki Sixx have engaged in war of words after the Pearl Jam frontman said in a recent interview that he “despised” Mötley Crüe.
In a new interview with the New York Times, Vedder, who is set to drop his latest album Earthling on Friday, February 10, said, “You know, I used to work in San Diego loading gear at a club. I’d end up being at shows that I wouldn’t have chosen to go to – bands that monopolized late-’80s MTV. The metal bands that – I’m trying to be nice – I despised.”
“‘Girls, Girls, Girls’ and Motley Crue: [expletive] you. I hated it,” he said. “I hated how it made the fellas look. I hated how it made the women look. It felt so vacuous.”
However, Vedder gave credit to Guns N’ Roses, who according to him “at least had some teeth.”
In response, Mötley Crüe bassist Sixx tweeted, “Made me laugh today reading how much the singer in Pearl Jam hated @MotleyCrue. Now considering that they’re one of the most boring bands in history it’s kind of a compliment isn’t it?”
