Last year, Kourtney Kardashian made headlines after the photo showed up of her wearing a CANNIBAL CORPSE shirt.
In a photo posted by indie rock group BEST COAST, Kourtney was seen wearing a CANNIBAL CORPSE shirt with a print from their debut album, 1990’s Eaten Back To Life.
After Metal Addicts shared original story on Twitter, Chris Barnes retweeted and slammed Kourtney and her then boyfriend (now fiancée) as “posers.”
Now, in a brand new Revolver interview with Barker, the BLINK-182 drummer has chimed in on the controversy, saying: “That’s the lamest sh*t ever. Obviously my fiancée doesn’t listen to CANNIBAL CORPSE, but I do. I grew up loving them. For [someone] to mention that in a negative light — f*cking lame, you know? She’s wearing it because she’s [cool]. She’s not claiming she knows every song. But I do! I bought every album, and I learned how to play every album.
“I grew up a punk-rock kid, [but] everything with punk rock — ‘I’m more punk than you’ — just f*ck all that,” he continued. “Be stoked that people are into music. Music is beautiful! It changes people’s lives. It creates the best memories. Just celebrate it, you know?
“But yeah … I have a gang of CANNIBAL CORPSE t-shirts,” he added. “I still love them. I have a gang of KING DIAMOND t-shirts and rare SLAYER shirts because I f*cking love those bands. I grew up on them. Even though I’m, you know, whatever the world wants to view me as — ‘Oh, that’s BLINK-182‘s drummer’ — actually that guy was playing in a garage with a bunch of speed-metal kids listening to D.R.I. and S.O.D. I enjoyed every f*cking minute of it.”
