Ghost: ‘Hard Rock Is About Who Has the Biggest D**k, Pop Music Is About Who’s Got the Smallest’
Swedish metal band Ghost have been getting a ton of attention lately for their unique blend of heavy metal and doom. Although five of the six members of Ghost exist without names, the musicians still belt out hilarious lines in the vein of GWAR, the most recent of which contains the wisdom: "Hard rock is about who has the biggest d--k and pop music is about who's got the smallest."
Ghost appeared on Killer Bunny TV's 'Rock Show,' last night, and one of the nameless ghouls of Ghost spoke about the band's image, or lack thereof, as a means to spearhead their core belief.
"Us being faceless and dressing apart from standard couture was a way for everyone to be able to connect with the concept," says the anonymous ghoul. "Being from a metal background, we know that it's all about looking the part — the choice of shoes you wear, for some bands, proves the value of the song. It's just a d--k-measuring competition. Hard rock is about who has the biggest d--k and pop music is about who's got the smallest. I guess we're pretty average. But in order to have a big d--k, you have to have it mentally."
Ghost are set to perform at Metallica's Orion Music + More Festival on June 24, as well as playing select European fests this summer. The band is also expected to release their follow up to 2010's 'Opus Eponymous' in late 2012.
