While Rollings Stones guitarist Keith Richards can hardly be quantified as the quiet type, rarely before has he come to criticize an entire genre at large.

Richards remarked both Black Sabbath and Metallica as "great jokes" in a recent interview with the New York Daily News and showed his unfavorable opinion of rap and hip-hop, calling fans of the genre "tone-deaf."

"What rap did that was impressive was to show there are so many tone-deaf people out there," Richards quips. "All they need is a drum beat and somebody yelling over it and they’re happy." He capped his opinion off with the short, but brute, "Rap — so many words, so little said."

Richard's opinion is hardly surprising, given his status as a legendary rock and roll guitarist in one of the most celebrated bands of all-time and being 71-years old. It's not worth really reading into, as you can talk to any guy over the age of 50 and they probably share as eloquent of an opinion, readily dismissing something that they happen to not personally like as a problem with everyone else, and not them.
