“I’m going with my knee-jerk reaction here: the first record that pops in my head is ‘Vulgar Display Of Power‘. I don’t think there’ll be any arguments there and I think people will understand that without any explanation at all!”

When asked which album he thinks shouldn’t exist, he went with Metallica‘s controversial 1996 outing “Load“. He had the following to say regarding that choice:

“I would have to say ‘Load‘ by Metallica. I mean, it’s a terrible record, man. I just don’t get it. If you’re gonna put out a record like that, just do a fucking side-project or something, ya know?”
