"It’s important that every teenage generation does something that makes everyone older go, ‘What the fuck are you doing?’"



Last month Biffy Clyro played a very special show in Glasgow, at which YUNGBLUD supported them.

And the band have spoken about how much they like Dom in an interview with the NME

This is what they had to say:

“I love seeing anyone who’s inspired by rock and metal making their way in the mainstream. There’s an era of your teenage years where you should be like, ‘I’m not doing what everyone else is fucking doing or what my parents tell me’.

“If I was 15 I would be all-in on Yungblud. I’d be dying my hair pink, wearing a miniskirt, the lot. When I look back to Kurt Cobain, he was wearing dresses and make-up and nail varnish. It’s important that every teenage generation does something that makes everyone older go, ‘What the fuck are you doing?’ It’s like, ‘This isn’t for you!’ That’s the whole point! I admire him a lot.”

And all of this is so true. Wise words from a wise man.

Here's YUNGBLUD's latest track 'Fleabag':



And Biffy Clyro just released their new record 'The Myth Of The Happily Ever After':
