The new music video for “Words of Wisdom” is angering fans of the legendary rockers The No Talent Ass Clowns. Straying completely from their hard rock roots, “Words of Wisdom” is pure electro-pop, which is something many fans don’t want from the infamous band.
Strangely enough, the song is only available on the New Zealand pressing of “Pinch the Loaf” and many fans had never heard the song until seeing the video. “What the f**k is this shit?” asks Ass Clowns fan Danny Zooco of Bay Ridge, NY. “I expect Lars Gunblade to rock my f**king socks off. And what do I get? Depeche Mode lite? That’s bullshit. I won’t have it. I’m just glad that this isn’t on my version of ‘Pinch the Loaf’ because I would have thrown up if I had heard it on my stereo system. I’ll tell you what… I got some ‘Words of Wisdom’ for the Ass Clowns. Stick to rock and roll, bitch!”
The Band Reacts to “Words of Wisdom” Controversy
“Well, the fans don’t get it because they’re all stupid,” said front man Lars Gunblade. “No one is going to tell us what we can and cannot play. If I want to play… I don’t know… Eskimo piano music, I will! Although I’m not sure exactly what that would sound like.”
The rest of the band is pretty candid in its comments about “Words of Wisdom” and the music video. “It’s all about Lars,” said guitarist Vas Defrens. “That’s pretty typical but it’s a little ridiculous here. I mean, shit, the band didn’t even play on the track. We basically had nothing to do with it. The only reason we weren’t pissed is because some truly amazing groupies came to the studio that day and we nailed them on the studio floor while Lars worked on the tracks in the mixing room. He must have really been into the mixing because he didn’t even come out to partake of the groupies, which is pretty unusual for him.”
