High On Fire’s Matt Pike Says Aerosmith’s Career Is “A Hot, Heaping Pile Of Dog Shit”


High On Fire vocalist/guitarist really doesn’t like Aerosmith. In a new feature over at, he expressed his hatred for the band and their song “Dude (Looks Like A Lady)” in particular. Some choice quotes from that include:

“I’ve just always had this thing with Aerosmith. The guy sounds like a goat. [Bleating.] “Baaa, baaa, dude looks…” It just gets under my skin. I have this button called the off button or the mute button that I call the Aerosmith button on all my stereos.

I just have this weird thing with Aerosmith, where I don’t even care what people say about their old shit. I think they’re the crappiest, most overrated shit band of all time. And I fucking can’t stand them. [Laughs.] And that particular song gets under my skin to where I want to stab people.”

“That band hasn’t done anything since the ’70s. And in the ’70s, which was their most redeeming era, they still fucking sucked. Two good tracks that just won everybody over, and the rest of their career has been a hot, heaping pile of dog shit. I’m just not into Aerosmith, I suppose.”

Be sure to read the full feature for a deeper look into his hatred for the band.
