Hey guys look, Justin Vernon doesn’t give a shit either!
If you’re wondering why Bon Iver didn’t perform last night, just blame the band’s integrity. The reason, again, goes back to the band’s refusal to deal with an organization that would try to dictate their musical behavior. The band was asked to play with other acts that had “nothing to do with” their music,” according to Billboard.
“We kind of said ‘fuck you’ a little bit and they sort of acted like they wanted us to play, but I don’t think they wanted us to play,” Vernon said. “Fuckin’ rock ‘n’ roll should not be decided by people that have that job. Rock ‘n’ roll should be the fucking people with guitars around their backs.”
