FOX Sports Asia recently interviewed Red Bull Racing F1 drivers Daniel Ricciardo and Max Verstappen and made them take part in the FOX Sports Asia’s Singapore music challenge. Ricciardo and Verstappen listened to everything Singaporean, from "We Are Singapore" by Hugh Harrison to Wormrot, and their reactions are mixed.
Ricciardo says he identifies with Wormrot pretty well because he's a big fan of Parkway Drive, while Verstappen says he can hear Ricciardo listening to hardcore in his hotel room and doesn't quite get the music.
Ricciardo: Like a kid who has been let loose in the candy store, Ricciardo’s eyes widen as he states, “I like this stuff – I grew up listening to a lot of hardcore.” The Australian also says that he hears some similarities between Wormrot and favourite band Parkway Drive.
Verstappen: Despite classifying the grindcore song as “one of my worst nightmares”, Verstappen actually seems amused by it at the beginning. You can see the Red Bull driver in musical agony, but at least the Dutchman is game enough to sit through it.
I think Australians are just hardcore as hell in general.
