Nikki Sixx kickstarted his weekend by dissing Pearl Jam as “one of the most boring bands in history.”

The Mötley Crüe bassist was responding to an interview Eddie Vedder recently gave to The New York Times Magazine, in which the PJ frontman said he “despised” Sixx’s band.

“I hated it,” Vedder said of the “Girls, Girls, Girls” outfit. “I hated how it made the fellas look. I hated how it made the women look. It felt so vacuous. Guns N’ Roses came out and, thank God, at least had some teeth.”

In a tweet this past Saturday, Sixx fired back with, “Made me laugh today reading how much the singer in Pearl Jam hated @MotleyCrue.”

He added, “Now considering that [Pearl Jam is] one of the most boring bands in history it’s kind of a compliment isn’t it?”

Vedder, who’s currently on tour in support of his forthcoming solo album Earthling, has not yet publicly responded to Sixx’s comments.

Mötley Crüe, meanwhile, is preparing for the band’s long-in-the-works reunion tour, which is set to kick off this June, which has been delayed since 2020 due to the COVID-19 pandemic.
