Bob Dylan on His Critics: "All Those Evil Motherf--kers Can Rot in Hell."

FUSE TV - Bob Dylan on His Critics: "All Those Evil Motherf--kers Can Rot in Hell."


Have you heard those rumors about Bob Dylan being a plagiarist? Well, Bob Dylan has, and he's not too happy. In an interview with Rolling Stone to promote his new album, Tempest, Dylan spoke out about the accusations and, in the process, absolutely ethered some of his critics.

When asked if his work was subject to a higher level of criticism than other artists, Dylan seemed to agree. "Oh, yeah, in folk and jazz, quotation is a rich and enriching tradition," he told Rolling Stone. "That certainly is true. It's true for everybody, but me. There are different rules for me."

That could be true, Bob! I believe you. But what about those accusations that his lyrics are too similar to the work of Civil War poet Henry Timrod? "And as far as Henry Timrod is concerned, have you even heard of him?" Dylan asked Rolling Stone. "Who's been reading him lately? And who's pushed him to the forefront? Who's been making you read him? And ask his descendants what they think of the hoopla. And if you think it's so easy to quote him and it can help your work, do it yourself and see how far you can get."

Fair enough. If you're wondering what Dylan thinks of those critics, you're in luck. "Wussies and pussies complain about that stuff," he awesomely told Rolling Stone. "It's an old thing – it's part of the tradition. It goes way back. These are the same people that tried to pin the name Judas on me. Judas, the most hated name in human history! If you think you've been called a bad name, try to work your way out from under that. Yeah, and for what? For playing an electric guitar? As if that is in some kind of way equitable to betraying our Lord and delivering him up to be crucified."

But, Bob, what exactly should those critics do?

"All those evil motherf--kers can rot in hell."

Incredible.

Bob Dylan's new album, Tempest, is in stores now. And if you'd like to watch a very violent video for the album's first single, "Duquesne Whistle," check it out here.
