Mike Patton Tells It Like It Is: "Wolfmother Sucks!"
POSTED ON 8/31/2006 | PERMALINK |18 Comments | BOOKMARK
mike patton hates wolfmotherMike Patton hates Wolfmother. A lot. They make his head hurt. And he's not afraid to share his pain in this amusing clip.

All Music Guide has similar, if less entertaining, things to say about the band:
There's no denying Australian heavy rock trio Wolfmother has been raised on rock -- specifically, raised on '70s rock. Problem is, from all appearances on their eponymous debut, they made their journey into the past via the twin gateway drugs of the White Stripes and Queens of the Stone Age, and once they dug back to the original Zeppelin and Sabbath texts (stopping along the way for some Soundgarden discs and maybe, for lyrical inspiration, Yes and Rush), they indulged so much it screwed with their sense of aesthetics. They threw everything and anything together, not bothering with minor problems like how their frenzied retro-rock doesn't quite support songs with titles like "The White Unicorn" and "Where Eagles Have Been" -- Zeppelin drew inspiration from JRR Tolkien and Sabbath certainly sang about fairies and gnomes, but neither band sounded as precious, inarticulate, or confused as Wolfmother does here.

without mike patton a band like wolfmother would have a hard time existing. their pastiche style retro rock is a direct descendant of a lot of patton's work. but a quick question...why do we have to fight? are we not allowed to like both? gray area people, it does exist.

Its a bit of a sweeping statement to say 'Ive heard patton. he isnt all that great. Seriously.' I mean what does that mean,very vague what have you heard? he has a very eclectic output, in comparison to wolf mother whom will be forgotten,(if you like them I'm assuming your taste is veering toward the mainstream which is cemented by the fact you don't 'get' Patton's music) Mike with his collaboration's with John Zorn and other figures of idiosyncrasy will remain with us into the future...

Mike is awesome, great voice. If anyone said that he sucks, certainly needs to listen to some Mr. Bungle / Tomahawk / FNM stuff.

Mike Patton is everything that music is supposed to be. FNM is a band that turned the corner every time the music industry tried to follow them. Patton has created many musical milestones and can not be added to any specific genre.
He is one of a kind in an industry occupied by assembly line clones.
Wolfmother is a lame cover-band that nobody will remember in 5 years.

pattton is a talent less hack,elitist music snob that tries to blend a bunch of crap together and call it creative.he has long forgotten how to simply rock.
faith no mare was cool back in the day,these other projects suck dick bags.he's a bum.who sits in his tower casting scorn on all others who dont share his thoughts of creativity.nah he says while looking down his nose,how dare these simple fools enjoy this rock n roll.what a douche.rock on wolfmother

Sorry to say this but anyone who thinks that wolfmother are good, really must have pretty shit taste in music in general.Anyone with half a brain or just good taste in music, would readily agree just how much better Mike Patton is as a musician, vocalist,performer and visionary.All Wolfmother on the other hand are just another example of the lame music that is shat yearly out of Australia, they are not in anyway original (unlike Patton) and will be forgotten within 5 years. Patton can say what he. wants coz he's got the talent, experience and credit to back it up.Andrew Stockdale was still shiting in his nappies when Patton started in bungle and FNM
