Sebastian Bach has slammed STAIND frontman Aaron Lewis after he urged fans at a recent show in Pennsylvania to chant “Fuck Joe Biden”.
Late last month, Lewis had the Pennsylvania crowd chanting the phrase with him against the current president while appearing with STAIND at The Pavilion at Montage Mountain in Scranton.
Bach, a vocal supporter of Biden, addressed Lewis while speaking to Ultimate Classic Rock in a new interview. Without mentioning the STAIND frontman by name, Sebastian said (as transcribed by BLABBERMOUTH.NET): “I just think for any meathead ignorant musician that wants to get their crowd chanting ‘Fuck Joe Biden’, anybody who wants to do that, I can say fuck you and your band. And fuck the guy that came before Joe Biden, and I don’t need to speak about him anymore.
“Joe Biden is an old man who has nothing but good intentions for the country,” Bach continued. “And there’s nothing to not like about him. He’s trying his hardest to get us back to normal instead of the shit show that took away rock and roll from us in 2020 and our kids’ school and everything that we know about America.
“Joe Biden has made America great again, and he’s constantly under attack for no reason. For what reason?
“All I want is for things to go back to normal. I hope that happens. That’s all I want. That’s my only objective.
“As soon as Joe Biden was elected president, I never mentioned the other guy ever again. If you look at my Twitter, I flicked the switch. I go, ‘I’m fucking done with that shit.’ ‘Cause that’s not who I am. I’m not out to be having political headlines with my face next to ’em all the time.”
Bach also went on to talk about his feelings toward COVID-19 anti-vaxxers in the U.S., saying: “I don’t understand why somebody would take a vaccine for polio but they won’t take a vaccine for COVID. What’s the fucking difference? You don’t like this disease, but you’re okay with this disease. I don’t get it. I don’t understand.”
