The 1975 frontman Matt Healy hasn’t held back when sharing his thoughts about Metallica, calling the Metal band his “worst band of all time.”

Healy made the comment when asked directly by Pitchfork his thoughts on the band.

“I fucking hate Metallica. My worst band of all time,” he replied.

In a previous interview with The Face, the outspoken singer touched on his dislike of the Grammy award winning band.

“I was never into Metallica, I liked Slayer and bands like that. Stuff that I was into was bands like Converge, Glassjaw, the more post-hardcore kind of stuff,” he told the publication.

He added, ”I was super into Poison the Well and, I mean, Refused are probably my favorite heavy metal band of all time, that was a big deal for me. It was in the Despair collection, the AFI fan club, and all that kind of stuff.”

Last month, The 1975 announced that they are touring Australia and New Zealand in April of next year.
