Have you ever wondered what questions really annoy your favourite musicians? Like the classic “what inspires you?” or “where did you get your band name from?”, there’s a few that definitely get under their skin, and courtesy of a brilliant vid via the legends at Funny Or Die, now we all know what not to ask.
Mike from Funny Or Die News took to the hallowed festival grounds of New York City’s Governor’s Ball to ask performers what their most hated question is, then took the liberty of answering it on their behalf.
The star-studded interviewee list includes major names such as Noel Gallagher, Death From Above 1979, St. Vincent, “Weird Al” Yankovic, HOLYCHILD, White Lung, Little Dragon, Benjamin Booker, Royal Blood, DIIV, Hot Chip and many, many more.
As y’all can imagine, hilarity most definitely ensued, check it out here:
