Motley Crue bassist Nikki Sixx said he isn’t a Pink Floyd fan in a new tweet.
“You have to be honest. We all have a couple massive huge iconic band’s that just don’t connect for you. I’ll share one if you don’t fucking judge me. 😂 what’s yers? #PinkFloyd.”

Another famous rocker also recently discussed bands he isn’t a big fan of, suggesting he doesn’t like Limp Bizkit and nu metal.
Incubus have been one of the biggest bands to make the breakthrough in the late ’90s/early ’00s alternative soundscape. They have always boasted their diverse sound, fitting in elements of funk, metal, electronic music, hip-hop, and more into their style.
The group gained popularity with their 1999 alternative classic “Make Yourself” and its 2001 follow-up “Morning View”. After, they took on a heavier approach with the following albums, and later engaged in pop-rock exercises with their recent efforts, 2011’s “If Not Now, When?”, and 2017’s “8”.
However, Incubus were initially lumped in with the nu-metal bands due to their fusion of funk, rap, and metal in early years, especially on the debut “Fungus Amongus” and their breakthrough record, 1997’s “S.C.I.E.N.C.E.”
This association was something that annoyed frontman Brandon Boyd, who thought about the antics of Fred Durst and the gimmicks of Coal Chamber when thinking of the genre.
Brandon Boyd talks about nu-metal and Korn
In a new interview with Metal Hammer, the singer revealed what nu-metal meant to him:
“I thought it was terrible. I know a lot of people love it, but being called ‘nu metal’ kinda hurt my feelings. If we made one record that fits into that genre, so be it, but I’ve never heard that in our music myself.”
“We weren’t trying to fit into a particular niche at a particular time. We were just kids being influenced by a small handful of bands that we grew up with. Just to name a few: Primus, Red Hot Chili Peppers, Mr. Bungle, Pearl Jam, Alice In Chains, Firehose…”
That being said, Boyd saves some nice words for Korn, who took Incubus as support on an early tour in the ’90s.
The frontman recalled:
“It felt like we had support. They would see us limping to the show as our van coughed its way into the parking lot. We weren’t supposed to partake in the catering, but they would see us show up malnourished and under-slept and be like, ‘Have you eaten? Go get some food!'”
