Nick and P-Nut of 311 react to how Mike D from the Beastie Boys talked trash about them and talk about a famous musician who likes them

Back at the end of March it was reported how Mike D from the Beastie Boys talked trash about 311.

While being interviewed by Vulture, Mike talked about a best case scenario on if another band/artist would sound like the Beastie Boys in which he mentioned Cypress Hill.  However, he was also asked about a worst-case scenario in which he mentioned 311.  This is what he said according to Vulture:

“Not that it’s ever happened, but my fear would be that someone would be like, “311.Alt-reggae, rap-rock, and long T-shirts worn under short T-shirts all coalesced in this still-going band. Maybe it’s the turntables that earned the comparison? You love those guys, right?” I’m sure they’re nice people — [their music] isn’t my cup of tea.”

Nick and P-Nut of 311 was interviewed by Q103 Albany in this video below about what Mike D said.  When asked how it affected the band talked about it not being “uplifting” but is also something to be “taken with  grain of salt.”  They even said it is “all good” as they talked trash about other bands before.  They do think Mike D probably will regret doing it eventually because they think there is “no gain” out of talking trash about other bands/artists.

They also said they like to focus on the positives like Joe Strummer being a fan of the band for example.

Around the 6:30 mark in the video is when they start talking about Mike D.  You might have to reload the page a few times or wait for the video to appear.  If it doesn’t appear, go HERE.
