Rob Zombie: "Babymetal has more energy than 90 percent of the bands we play with"
Rob Zombie has defended Babymetal against online criticism after posted a photo on his Facebook page.
He met Babymetal at the Carolina Rebellion festival in Concord, North Carolina. After one fan called Babymetal "a shameful embarrassment to anything metal," Rob responded: "Hey, they are nice kids out on the road touring. What are you doing besides being a grumpy old fuck?"
Another fan wrote: "Babymetal are awful. This is lame. I love you, Rob, but shame on you." Rob fired back with: "They roll harder than you."
A third fan said: "Are you kidding me, Rob? BABYMETAL is J-pop, not metal. But to each their own, I guess." Zombie countered with: "These three girls had more energy than 90 percent of the bands we play with."
Babymetal posted a comment on the Facebook photo saying: "Thank you Rob! The Spirit of HEAVY METAL traversed across the World,rose above language barriers, went beyond generations and created countless legends. See you again at Northern Invasion!"
