The Wall Of Glass Singer explained to Queen mega-fan Taylor Hawkins why he just isn't keen on the legendary band.

Liam Gallagher doesn't like Queen and says Brian May's guitar sounds as though it's been "clogged in his a**".

The For What It's Worth hitmaker is no fan of the Bohemian Rhapsody legends, and while he's happy to concede that iconic late frontman Freddie Mercury had a "great voice" he doesn't appear to like their over-the-top rock sound.

Speaking to Foo Fighters drummer Taylor Hawkins in a feature for Magnet magazine, he said: "Do I like Queen? Uh, not really, no. I mean, I get Freddie Mercury has a great voice and all that, and obviously they've got some great songs. But I do find them a bit Queen-y. Listen, they're a top band and obviously they've got great songs, but I don't know, man. Brian May's guitar sound sounds like he's got it clogged in his a**. I  respect him and all that, but I don't know, man."

Watch Foo Fighters' Dave Grohl and Taylor Hawkins react to Rami Malek as Freddie Mercury:

While Liam, 45, isn't a big fan of the We Will Rock You band, he also doesn't like being known as a star of Britpop.

He explained: "I f***ing hate that word, mate. We weren't f***ing pop. To me, I felt it was us and The Verve. We were different scenes, were like a classic rock 'n' roll band.

"Britpop to me was Pulp, Menswear, Blur, all these stupid little Camden bands that were all jolly as f**k, you know what I mean? We wanted to play, man. I personally always found that word insulting ... The Verve and Oasis - we were thinking way bigger than Britpop. We were a classic rock 'n' roll band."

Meanwhile, Liam Gallagher has reached the top spot with his debut No.1 as you were album.
