Top 10 Musician's Opinions About Music that are Probably False

The Top Ten

1 According to Ozzy, the best metal album is AC/DC's Highway to Hell John Michael "Ozzy" Osbourne was born on December 3, 1948. He is also known as ''The Prince of Darkness''. Ozzy is an English singer, songwriter, and television personality. He rose to prominence in the early 1970s as the lead vocalist of the band Black Sabbath. Osbourne was fired from Black Sabbath ...read more.

Chill out y'all. Ozzy's known for saying dumb things. He was probably on drugs when he said this - RiverVibeZ

Another proof he's not a metal musician, he don't even know what metal is and he betrayed metal several times.

Definitely false - even the kids know this isn't a metal album. - Metal_Treasure

AC/DC isn’t even metal. - 3DG20

2 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." Kurt Cobain was born February 20, 1967, in Aberdeen, Washington. In 1987, he started the grunge band Nirvana, which became one of the most successful bands ever. He was a talented yet troubled grunge performer. Kurt Cobain became a rock legend in the 1990s with his band. He committed suicide at his ...read more.

Any member of Guns N Roses is far more talented than Kurt Cobain ever was. - RiverVibeZ

Sorry Kurt, but Axl is a much better singer than you and Slash is a far better guitarist. Just cause ya didn't like em didn't mean you had to call them "untalented" or "crap people".
~Kat

Yet Kurt Cobain wasn't as skilled as Slash was at guitar and Axl Rose has a better vocal range than him. I would also say Nirvana is more popular than Guns N' Roses are because I more often see people wearing Nirvana shirts than Guns N' Roses shirts. - christangrant

First, Guns N' Roses was more popular at the time. Second, Cobain's major talent was songwriting, which he was a true master at. - Sop

I'll also bring up that Nirvana actually had the chance to tour with Guns N' Roses and Metallica and be the opening band but kurt refused and then said this quote for what reason I have no idea, so Guns N' Roses had Faith No More as a opening act instead (a much better band if you ask me) - christangrant

3 David Bowie on Lulu by Lou Reed and Metallica: "This is Lou’s greatest work. This is his masterpiece. Just wait, it will be like Berlin. It will take everyone a while to catch up." David Robert Jones, known professionally as David Bowie (January 8, 1947 - January 10, 2016) was an English singer born in London, the son of a fundraiser and a waitress. He is credited for his experimental and creative musical discography which has won praise and accolades for many critics and fans. ...read more.

I don't know why, but I feel like he was trolling when he said this. - RiverVibeZ

I can understand why people hated Lulu. I see the album as a Avant-Garde metal album and isn't for everyone. To be honest with you, my opinion on the album has changed positively over the years. But it's nowhere near Lou Reed's "greatest work". Nothing can beat Berlin. - Mumbizz01

Metal fans are sure this is the worst Metallica album although it wasn't exactly a Metallica album - it was a Lou Reed album ft Metallica. So either metal fans have higher criteria for good music or David Bowie's criteria were too low. - Metal_Treasure

Well I'll say it's not his worst work... but the album this is up against is Metal Machine "Music" so... - christangrant

4 Dave Grohl: "Heavy Metal would not exist without Led Zeppelin, and if it did, it would suck." David Eric "Dave" Grohl is an American rock musician, multi-instrumentalist, singer, songwriter, producer and film director. He is best known as the former drummer of the hugely popular 90s grunge band Nirvana and the vocalist/guitarist for the alternative rock band Foo Fighters. He has sat behind the ...read more.

If he would have said something like "Hard rock wouldn't be what it is today without Led Zeppelin", then I would gladly accept his opinion as truth. - Gg2000

Has he ever heard of Deep Purple? - Userguy44

False because metal wasn't invented by Led Zeppelin and would exist without Led Zeppelin. - Metal_Treasure

So what? Some metal artists were influenced by Pink Floyd...jazz... - Metal_Treasure

5 Morrissey on The Ramones: "The Ramones have absolutely nothing to add that is of relevance or importance and should be rightly filed and forgotten." Steven Patrick Morrissey (born 22 May, 1959), known as Morrissey, is an English singer, songwriter and author, rose to prominence as the lead singer of The Smiths, an indie rock band - which was active from 1982 to 1987 . Since then, Morrissey has had a solo career making the top ten of the UK singles ...read more.

Ignoring this quote, Morrissey is the biggest idiot on the planet. Half of his opinions are simply his ranting. - Swellow

He said that in 1976 and his prediction proved wrong. - Metal_Treasure

It goes for Smiths' music LOL

Big mouth strikes again

6 Van Morrison on The Beatles: "The Beatles were peripheral. If you had more knowledge about music. It didn't really mean anything." Sir George Ivan Morrison OBE is a Northern Irish singer, songwriter, instrumentalist and record producer. In 2016, he was knighted for services to the music industry and to tourism in Northern Ireland.

I think he has partly right, but as I listened to some of his songs I rather choose the Beatles than him.

I don't know...maybe he's partly right? But most people would disagree with Van Morrison. - Metal_Treasure

7 Frank Sinatra on Rock n Roll: " Rock n Roll: The Most Brutal, Ugly, Degenerate, Vicious Form of Expression"

At the time Rock n Roll was called "Satanic". - Metal_Treasure

I wonder what he would think of today's rap. - RiverVibeZ

And the interesing is, he said this about the '50s rock and roll, not about the rock music itself. How is that music brutal or vicious? LOL. Don't listen what an overrated jazz elitist said about one of the most important genres ever.

8 Dick Rowe: "The Beatles have no future in show business. We don't like your boys' sound. Groups are out. Four-piece groups with guitars, particularly, are finished."

Well, we still have Metallica, Megadeth, System of a Down, Trivium, Led Zep, Black Sabbath (their music is still alive), Black Label Society, Alice in Chains, Pearl Jam, Rage Against the Machine, Ozzy Osbourne, the list goes on and on and on. - MattAffterburner

Dick Rowe was a Decca Records executive and told this to the Beatles' manager in 1962. - Metal_Treasure

9 Rivers Cuomo on his own album Pinkerton: "It’s a hideous record… It was such a hugely painful mistake that happened in front of hundreds of thousands of people and continues to happen on a grander and grander scale and just won’t go away." Rivers Cuomo is an American musician and singer-songwriter. He is best known as the lead vocalist, lead guitarist and songwriter of the alternative rock band Weezer, with whom he has recorded eleven studio albums.

Pinkerton was initially panned when it first released and that caused the guy to just hate everything about it. After awhile the reception warmed up tremendously and he started to appreciate it again. Gotta say it must suck to put a lot of hard work into something only for it to be blasted initially. I understand why he'd disliked it so much at first. - cjWriter1997

Again it wasn't well received back in the day but it is a masterpiece

(Rivers Cuomo of Weezer)
I had no space but here is the 2nd half of the quote:
"It’s like getting really drunk at a party and spilling your guts in front of everyone and feeling incredibly great and cathartic about it, and then waking up the next morning and realizing what a complete fool you made of yourself."
Why was Cuomo (probably) wrong? Because the album is considered by many to be a masterpiece. - Metal_Treasure

10 David Lee Roth on Elvis Costello: "Music journalists like Elvis Costello because music journalists look like Elvis Costello." David Lee Roth is an American rock vocalist, songwriter, actor, author, and former radio personality.

Maybe journalists liked Elvis Costello because he was writing songs that didn't fall back on party and sex themes like his music did. I like Van Halen, but it's important to remember that they were a party band in those days. - Gg2000

Do journalists look like Elvis Costello? I don't know. Maybe. A little bit. Or not... - Metal_Treasure

The Contenders

11 Morrissey on Oasis: "They are very tame to me. God bless Noel, I’m sure he’ll always have a spot on ‘Bob’s Full House’, but I search for something with more bite and rage." Steven Patrick Morrissey (born 22 May, 1959), known as Morrissey, is an English singer, songwriter and author, rose to prominence as the lead singer of The Smiths, an indie rock band - which was active from 1982 to 1987 . Since then, Morrissey has had a solo career making the top ten of the UK singles ...read more.

Yeah, the bros (Gallagher) are known for being very tame (sarcasm) - Metal_Treasure

12 Lil Xan on 2Pac: "2Pac is boring"

Shut the hell up, Lil Trashcan. 2pac has been dead for more than 15 years yet people still remember his music. No one will remember who you are in a year or 2. - RiverVibeZ

Lil Xan it's even boring than my tinny pennis lol
