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."

Only neckbeard virgin losers care if a celebrity wears a metal band tee. Go outside and talk to a girl bro

anonymous 3/18/2022 8:11:28 AM

It's a very "gen z" thing to wear shirts of bands you've never listened to. They don't even care how gross and lame it is when called out. Kourtney is obviously older, but she and Travis are trying to appeal to TikTok addicted "emo goth" dorks. Leave the counter culture shit to us poor people.

Someone should make a "mock" Blink 182 shirt using the cannibal corpse logo lettering and use Travis Barkers likeness behind a drum kit made of decomposed bodies and give it the title "beaten back to life." see if he still shares this very sentiment.

Travis,when you learn to play the drums like "Nick Barker"-then, and only then, -will you be asked for your weekly allowance-(2 cents.) I know Nick is Not the drummer of Cannibal Corpse, but Nick is the only influential "Barker" in extreme metal, I could think of at the moment. Speaking of Barkers, you should've heard yo momma barking at the moon last night.

anonymous 3/18/2022 11:52:04 AM

Yeah sure, Travis. One the world's biggest celebrities who is wealthy beyond belief and belongs to a narcissistic family just happened to pick out that shirt to wear....Just call it like it is, she wants to fit in to your lifestyle.

anonymous 3/18/2022 11:58:42 AM

Imagine being a grown man and still getting triggered by females wearing band shirts purely as fashion.

The relationship was then terminated >> No comment LOL. He knows to let a sleeping dog lie. How funny would it be if Danny called him direct and flat out told him " Yo Travis I need a million dollars cash and that's it"? What would Travis do say no and not give it? I bet he'd give Ezec at least 300K cash & Ezec would take it then say "100K a year the next seven years interest free and we good."

Hey Chris how does it feel to see your former band Cannibal Corpse draw more than your current one Six Feet Under? You must feel like a loser as well you should as it shows you didn't make the band the music did or CC wouldn't be consistently selling out 1500-2000 capacity rooms.
