Nine Inch Nails brainchild Trent Reznor is not a fan of new music, noting that he feels a "pretty conservative nature has crept into" it.
"A lot of bands today are designing themselves to get a good review in the hip blogs and that is probably the . . . most cowardly thing you can do as an artist," he told Scotland's the Daily Record.
"If you have something to say, then say it. Express yourself and break the rules."
"Following your own path doesn't mean being single-minded," he added. "I try to straddle paying attention to what is happening in the outside world and at the same time really trusting my own voice and my own sense of what is right."
NIN will be hitting the road this summer for a blockbuster co-headlining tour alongside Soundgarden.
