Deftones’ Chino Moreno Shares Soundtrack Of His Life, Finds Coldplay “The Most Boring Music In The World”


Deftones frontman Chino Moreno has been doing the press rounds in the UK recently and the below stop at NME was one of them. He took part in their ‘Soundtrack Of My Life’ series, detailing the songs that influenced him, the songs that make him danced and more. When asked what song he wished he wrote, he upped the ante, stating that he wished he wrote Weezer‘s ‘Blue Album’:

“A whole record I wish we had written is the ‘Blue Album’ from Weezer. The song’s are so simple in a way, but they just penetrate. It’s just a great record. And I remember sitting back and saying man I wish I was that band and I wish I’d wrote this batch of songs, ’cause they’re so fun to play and so fun to sing. Early on we used to do covers of ’em—we used to actually soundcheck with that whole record back like on the early days of “Adrenaline” and stuff and people used to bug out, like here we are in this metal band and we’re sitting here soundchecking with the whole first Weezer record.”

In reply to a song that he can’t get out of his head, Moreno once again gave props to Justin Bieber, stating:

“Recently a song that I can’t get out of my head is… actually any song by Justin Bieber. I end up by default listening to his latest singles every morning when I’m driving my daughter to school. So his most recent one is probably “What Do You Mean?” and it’s like it just replays in my head all day long. I hear it one time in the morning and it’s like the rest of the day I’m stuck with it—which I don’t really mind too much—I mean, I don’t think it’s that bad of a song.”

When asked what song he can no longer listen to, he chose Coldplay:

“One band I just can’t listen to is Coldplay. I don’t know why. They spring no emotion at all to me. Any of their songs, I hear them, and there’s just the most blank sound that I’ve heard. I’m not trying to be an asshole in any way. I just really… it does absolutely nothing for me, it’s gotta be the most boring music in the world.”

The Deftones‘ next album “Gore” will be released on April 08th.
