Travis Barker responds to Kourtney Kardashian Cannibal Corpse t-shirt uproar: 'f*cking lame'

'She's wearing it because she's cold. She's not claiming she knows every song.'

You may recall that last summer media personality Kourtney Kardashian was photographed wearing a Cannibal Corpse t-shirt. Some death metal fans weren't too pleased, including former Cannibal Corpse vocalist Chris Barnes, who publicly branded Kardashian and fiancée Travis Barker "posers" (see below).

In a new interview with Revolver, Barker was asked about the uproar, and the Blink-182 drummer had the following to say:

"To speak on that, that's the lamest shit 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 — fucking lame, you know? She's wearing it because she's cold. 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 fuck all that. 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. [Laughs] I still love them. I have a gang of King Diamond T-shirts and rare Slayer shirts because I fucking 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 fucking minute of it."
