Kanye West Ridiculed In New Song
. (Classic Rock) Comedy metal band Steel Panther have come out swinging in a new song about Kanye West following an incident at the Grammy Awards. West momentarily interrupted Beck's acceptance speech for his record Morning Phase winning Album Of The Year at the annual event in a flashback to a similar stunt with Taylor Swift at the 2009 MTV Video Music Awards. In both cases, the rapper was attempting to protest the decision not to award the honors to Beyonce.
West later told the media that the decision to give Beck the prize over Beyonce's self-titled record was disrespectful to "the craft" of music. Steel Panther have stepped into the ring on the issue, posting a short song about the rapper on Facebook.
Accompanied by piano, Panther frontman Michael Starr declares West's music "sounds like hamster turds" and that he sounds like "a donkey fart", adding that "Beck should kick you in the nuts with steel toed boots to make it right."
The group says: "For your consideration for next year's #Grammys… #Kanye" Check it out here.
