"I love Led Zeppelin and ‘70s rock’n’roll. I know it’s absurd music, and that whole ‘baby, baby, baby’ style is wacky with lyrical content and sexual misogyny, but dude, I like it. It sounds good. I had a conversation with some person at a coffee shop who was like, ‘Elvis Presley was a racist and he’s the reason why racism is in music today.’ I was like, ‘So let me guess, you don’t like Led Zeppelin either, huh?’ She’s like, ‘I fucking hate Led Zeppelin.’ I was like ‘Alright, I’ll take my coffee to go please. Thank you.’ What the fuck. You can’t dissect it like you would in college. You’ve got to just enjoy it."
