Kanye West Pisses Everyone Off At Big Day Out, Including Soundgarden

He's always one who makes enemies easier than friends!

This weekend, Kanye West put his fans in a foul mood at Big Day Out when he arrived 45 minutes late to his set and kept them all waiting in the rain. Once he finally got there, he put on a show spectacular enough to appease them, but the rockers of the newly reunited Soundgarden were far less forgiving.

The group ended up having to play their set on a neighboring stage to Kanye, who was going through soundcheck at the time. His music was blasted so loud that it overpowered that of Soundgarden's and the fans were more than just displeased. Frontman Chris Cornell, who clearly wasn't impressed with Ye's music, shouted out to the crowd:

"Sounds like there’s children playing music there, retarded children, retarded as in held back. There’s no other word for it."

Can't say we love that connotation all that much. No doubt he's going to get into a lot of trouble for that remark — and rightly so.

But not to get too fixated, Kanye has to learn he is not the end-all, be-all of music. A little respect for his fans and fellow performers wouldn't kill him.

They both should feel very ashamed.

    What an asshole. I hope he suffers the way he makes other people suffer. But you know, as they say, what comes around goes around.



  2. 2

    I think Kanye is borderline retarded. And I'm not using that as a perjorative.



  3. 3

    Soundgarden has talent! Kayne does not! How can you even call what Kayne does music. More like push play and talk-a-along

    Re: VinnyD – I don't think he is retarded, I think his poor brain is being crushed by the massive weight of his ego that it can no longer function properly. That makes him mentally challenged - also not a pejorative, just an observation.

    Re: rosebud99 – Oops. I meant "pejorative".

    Perez it was raining and the equipment got wet-hence the delay!



  7. 7

    Kanye was, is, and always will be, the most ignorant ass in the music industry.

    Re: maccapacca04 – It was raining and the equipment was getting wet?

    Certainly didn't seem to stop Soundgarden from rocking the stage with electrified instruments made of metal in their hands.

    Kanye just has to hold a plastic microphone and talk for an hour and a half.

    This self important jerk needs a world class all expense pain ASS BEATING. He is not that great when it comes to music and his songs are marginal at best.

    What a d-bag! People are really getting tired of his arrogance…oh yeah, and the arrogance of Jay_Z AND Beyonce. So you had a baby…great for you! They run around like they gave birth to some enlightened being who has saved the world. Personally, I'm fed-up with Jay-Z and CON-Yeah and their attitude. Losers.



  12. 12

    Ugh. These rappers think so highly of themselves. I swear him and Jay Z were calling themselves 'Legends' like….2 years after they released music. Psh. Please.

    Hum…

    He was pissed off. He said something that is not totally politically correct.

    You did worse, Perez, much much worse.

    Re: Rocketboy – No Kanye does have talent, the problem is no one thinks so more than him. I loathe Kanye as a person, but his music is pretty good (sans the auto tune album).

    When Kanye first came around, he was able to give the "hip hop" genre the intelligent sound it had not had since back when it was actual rap music. His freshman and sophmore albums were really good and the success got to his head far too quickly.

    Man Kanye is a freakin child, good on Chris for saying something, he coulda said much worse than that…
    Chris C and Soundgarden crew have been in the business a lot longer and Chris is one of the most humble artists! So glad Kanye didn't come to New Zealand BDO.



  16. 16

    SG is absolutely right. West sounds like a retarded 12 year old trying to rhyme words he doesn't understand. It's crazy to think that people actually like that ass hat.



  17. 17

    cornell, can sing, play a guitar. kanye can talk during a machine driven beat in kindergarten rhymes about nothing. no comparision.



  18. 18

    Kanye is an over rated bottom



  19. 19

    I LOVE Chris Cornell…he has TALENT!!!!!!!!!….Kanye?..not so much. Kanye IMO is more known for his temper tantrums than his actual music. If you doubt Chris's talent..go to youtube and look for Chris Cornell Billie Jean, Thank you..and also Imagine (acoustic)..FANTASTIC!!!!!!!!!…..****Not to mention HE'S HOT AS HELL



  20. 20

    ..boy, i hope this rap movement would end…it requires no talent….
