He swears lots and isn’t shy of claiming if one thing sucks – even his personal music – however he’s an all-round dude. It’s PUP frontman Stefan Babcock.

The primary music that I keep in mind listening to…

Meat Loaf – Bat Out Of Hell (1977)

“My mother and father aren’t enormous music followers, however my dad had this report. It was one in every of perhaps six albums he used to play on a regular basis. I will need to have been listening to it from the time I used to be a child, however the first time I can actually recall listening to it was once I was 5 years previous throughout Thanksgiving.”

The music that jogs my memory of my childhood…

ABBA – Dancing Queen (1976)

“I didn’t correctly begin studying about music till I used to be 13. My mother is totally tone deaf, however she used to run round singing this, and I liked the music as a child. I don’t now, nevertheless it has a smooth spot in my coronary heart.”

The primary music that I discovered to play…

America – A Horse With No Identify (1971)

“I really suppose this music fucking sucks, nevertheless it’s a two chord factor and each chords solely require two fingers to play them, so it’s in all probability the best music anybody may ever play on guitar. After I picked up a guitar for the primary time, my good good friend Ian – who doesn’t even play guitar, however is aware of how one can play this – confirmed me these two chords, and that’s form of how it began for me.”

The music that made me need to be in a band…

Automobile – Constructed To Spill (1994)

“That is in all probability my favorite music in the complete world. And I believe the rationale it actually made me need to be in a band is as a result of up till I heard the album, There’s Nothing Mistaken With Love, I’d largely been uncovered to fairly polished music, so I felt far faraway from having the ability to play something like that. However this report is a tough recording. You’ll be able to hear every guitar, the bass and the drums, and I may hear how a music like which may come collectively and the way I may perhaps study to put in writing songs prefer it. It appeared so actual and important to me, a minimum of in comparison with all of the polished shit I’d heard. So it gave me the boldness to select up the guitar and begin writing music, and attempt to play in a band.”

The music that soundtracked my first love…

The Weakerthans – Left And Leaving (2000)

“The primary lady I dated critically, I ended up courting for over six years. After I first met her, I didn’t know how one can play guitar and I didn’t actually have nice style in music, however I keep in mind earlier than we have been collectively I went over to her place and he or she performed this on guitar. I’d by no means heard it, or heard of The Weakerthans, however she had this excellent voice and I’m fairly certain I fell in love immediately. I used to be so extremely smitten listening to her play this music, and it’s caught with me for my total grownup life.”

My favorite music to play stay…

PUP – Acquainted Patterns (2016)

“This actually isn’t one in every of our extra widespread songs, however we play it at each single present as a result of all of us love taking part in it. I believe the 4 of us in all probability go more durable throughout this than every other music. It will get us fired up. It’s very cathartic for me – it’s an enormous fuck you to a bunch of individuals within the music trade who dicked round with our band, so it feels good to shout about that day by day. This music has a kind of magic for me.”

The primary music of ours I heard on the radio…

PUP – Lionheart (2013)

“This was the second I realised Canadian radio is absolute dogshit, as a result of this music sucks! I’m embarrassed by it as a result of the lyrics are gibberish. It’s the one music PUP have ever performed that has no that means. I hate it.”

The music that I want I had written…

Don Henley – The Boys Of Summer time (1984)

“Solely the unique Don Henley model, although. I fucking hate The Ataris’ cowl. I didn’t even know that was a canopy for a very long time, till I used to be, like, 19. It was only a music I hated and I assumed it sucked. However then I heard the Don Henley unique on the radio and, effectively, fuck, it’s an awesome music! I can take heed to it over and over.”

The music that sums up my perspective in life…

Modest Mouse – Shit Luck (1997)

“I don’t just like the title or consider I’ve had shit luck. I’ve really been extremely fortunate in my life. It’s extra the lyrics that sum up how I really feel: ‘This airplane is certainly crashing / This boat is clearly sinking / This constructing’s completely burning down / And my coronary heart has slowly dried up.’ Musically, it’s a cacophony. It seems like falling down a set of stairs.”

The music that I’d like performed at my funeral…

AJJ – I Wanna Rock Out In My Desires (2014)

“This music is humorous, however the melody is unhappy and emotional, and it’s all the issues I really feel once I take into consideration dying. I really like the thought of unhappy individuals in a room listening to ‘Candy dick denim jacket shredding a Flying V / I need to rock out in my goals.’
