30 Seconds With Chromeo

30 Seconds With Chromeo

Rocks Off sat down with Dave1 and P-Thugg of one of the best bands around, Chromeo, to see what we could learn from their royal smoothnesses in just 30 seconds. Note: They wished to be credited for their answers collectively, because My Little Pony is right and friendship really is magic.

Rocks Off: What is the worst song in the world?

Chromeo: I honestly can't think of one! Every song I despise, I can find a reason to respect it on some level, even if it's well executed mediocrity.

RO: What is the best lyric in the world?

C: "When I came home last night/ You wouldn't make love to me" - Rick James, "Give It To Me Baby."

RO: Someone throws a beer bottle at you onstage. What do you do?

C: Drink it.

30 Seconds With Chromeo

RO: Without worrying about space, time, or the laws of physics, what would be the ultimate gig to play and why?

C: Live Aid, yo!

RO: What would you buy with a million dollars?

C: Mo money mo problems. Make a charity donation.

RO: What would you buy with your last dollar?

C: A pack of Halls. At least I'd be a bum with good breath.

RO: If you could canonize another musician, who would it be and of what would they be the patron saint?

C: Prince, patron saint of purple.

RO: What will be written on the plaque beneath the giant statue future generations erect in your honor?

C: Erect.

Chromeo plays tonight at House of Blues with Mayer Hawthorne and 7 p.m. Saturday on the Honda Stage at ACL. Their album, Business Casual, is available now.
