Brian Posehn has released a new video for his song ‘New Music Sucks’. The metalhead comedian sings, “New music sucks, new music sucks, it really, really sucks, holy shit it sucks.”
The song begins with Posehn interspersing the hook with a bunch of artist names like One Direction, Imagine Dragons, Katy Perry, Lady Gaga, and Drake. He travels through more names and ridiculous lyricism in his pop iteration.
Eventually, he kicks the song up a notch after realising there are newer artists he could be ripping on. The song enters its metal phase before he names Halsey, The Chainsmokers, Cardi B, Ariana Grande, Kanye West, and DJ Khaled.
The video sees appearances from Weird Al Yankovic and Patton Oswalt. Meanwhile Fall Out Boy’s Patrick Stump and Joe Trohman — who also get rinsed — helped Brian Posehn out on the song.
You can watch the video below.
Brian Posehn’s ‘New Music Sucks’ is taken from his album Grandpa Metal.
He managed to pack the album full of stellar metal guests.
Slipknot’s Corey Taylor, Steel Panther’s Michael Starr, and Amon Amarth frontman Johan Hegg as well as Gary Holt from Exodus and Slayer and Chuck Billy from Testament all feature on Grandpa Metal.
