Machine Gun Kelly, Travis Barker & Oli Sykes

Machine Gun Kelly Says His Pop-Punk Turn Helped Revive Rock, Debuts “Maybe” Video Featuring Bring Me The Horizon’s Oli Sykes


An official music video has now landed online for Machine Gun Kelly‘s collaborative track “Maybe“. That song finds Kelly teamed with frequent contributor Travis Barker (Blink-182) and Bring Me The Horizon vocalist Oli Sykes. The track appears on Kelly‘s newly released album “Mainstream Sellout“.

In other news, a recent interview with Machine Gun Kelly finds him discussing the impact he feels his high-profile shift from rap to pop-punk has had on the rock scene as a whole, telling of that:

“It opened the lane back up for people to make money. It opened up these festivals. [Rock] needed a defibrillator. Who cares who gives it, just as long as that motherfucker doesn’t die?”

In the same interview, MGK also spoke of those who call him a poseur for switching genres to pop-punk and questioning his allegiance to the genre, offering:

“I know it kills certain bands in that community that I got the success that I got. But I earned that shit. Dude, I was fucking loading up the van with our drums and amps in 2010, driving to Indiana and Chicago, playing Warped Tour. I can tell you the fucking Wi-Fi codes to venues in Blackfoot, Idaho. Can you say that shit as a band?”
