Weird Al, Patton Oswalt, Fall Out Boy’s Joe Trohman guest-star
“New music sucks.” So goes the chant-along chorus to Brian Posehn‘s song titled with that phrase. It’s a sentiment that many metalheads subscribe to, especially when “new music” means “new pop music.” The song appears on Posehn’s 2020 album of music and comedy, Grandpa Metal, which features a murderers row of big-name metalheads: Slipknot’s Corey Taylor, Anthrax’s Scott Ian, Testament’s Chuck Billy and Amon Amarth’s Johan Hegg, to name just a few.
Today (January 7th), Posehn has teamed with Revolver to unveil the hilarious video for “New Music Sucks.” The clip is star-studded in its own right, featuring cameos from Weird Al Yankovic, Patton Oswalt and Fall out Boy’s Joe Trohman. It also sees Posehn impersonating — and skewering — a host of today’s biggest pop stars: Katy Perry, Miley Cyrus, Post Malone, Lil Nas X and many more. Watch above.
For more Posehn, pick up the Winter 2020 issue of Revolver. Inside, the comedian reunites with his longtime pal Rob Zombie, who appears on one of the magazine’s collectible covers, for a wide-ranging interview. The Zombie issue is available in a special fan bundle featuring a limited-edition slipcase, alternative cover and an exclusive 7-inch single of “The Triumph of King Freak (A Crypt of Preservation and Superstition)” on white vinyl.
