Rupert Grint Talks Music in New Interview

A new interview featuring actor Rupert Grint (Ron Weasley) in The Observer is now online, featuring a new photo of the young actor which can be seen right here. In this interview, Mr. Grint chiefly discusses his love of music, particularly the punk genre which he likes due to the “madness behind it. The craziness, the passion. And the whole anarchist thing is quite cool.” Expressing his knowledge of the music, and of some its most popular bands, Mr. Grint relates his method for finding new music by saying: “I’ve bought albums simply because I like the look of the sleeve, like the Dead Kennedys’ Frankenchrist. And I’ve also done that
because of funny band names, or funny song titles. I got the Kennedys’
Kill the Poor for the title alone.” However, as Mr. Grint notes in the interview, his love of music does not necessarily equate to him fronting a band of his own. Quotegae:

“I wouldn’t be like … Bono… I’d be happiest standing at the back, strumming my little banjo where
no one could see me.” He grins. “Yeah,” he says, “that would suit me
fine.”

Avatar ImageBrad Ausrotas says: He sounds like a tool, sadly. I mean the line "the whole anarchist thing is quite cool" just makes me shake my head in disgust.Avatar ImageRavenclaw98 says: okey that quote i did not understand!Avatar Imagesakuranbo07 says: Interesting. Avatar Imagebadger666 says: Lol.Avatar ImageEphyreTheLoser says: This has to be one of my favorite pictures of him.Avatar ImageFloridianFlounder95 says: I love that picture! lol, I'd be in the back strumming my Banjo as well!Avatar ImageHPNAIV says: @Brad: Lol. He doesn't look like a tool. Maybe a little but he's still cute :)Avatar ImageHermioneRon4ever says: Musical cast :)Avatar Imagecheeserpleaser says: I must say that he does have a superb taste in music. :DAvatar Imageameema says: aw, I love him! he's so sweet! (as in nice sweet, not awesome sweet. though he's awesome sweet as well) and that picture is drop-dead HILARIOUS! hahaha!Avatar Imagegryffindor1991 says: Cool. That pic is hilarious. He looks like a lunatic. Its so funny.Avatar Imagelupinwandcaster says: Darn, I don't like his musical taste.Avatar ImageAlice Weasley says: Love the pic.Avatar Imagekimmypotter says: punk yes!Avatar Imagepansy parkinson says: great pic, but one shouldn't admit they buy a record due to the cover, I agree it does make him sound like a tool. Oh sad.Avatar Imagekamidee says: Music is for everyone and its a great way to connect us as HP the Musical/A very Potter Musical has shown us. People who look down their noses at others who had different opinions to them is what disgusts *me* more than anything else. Pop, punk, rock whatever, music is there to be enjoyed. Avatar Imageoldenoughtoknowbetter says: Not a punk rocker my self... but Rupe is looking cute in the pic!Avatar Imagesianletley says: There is no need 2 b unkind it is his opinion not yours I think it was honest. He wasn't pretendin 2 kno bout stuff just because he is in the media spotlightAvatar ImageJadeDanielle says: "I'd be happiest standing at the back, strumming my little banjo where no one could see me." Heehee, I had great mental images when I read this line. :DAvatar Imagekamidee says: @sianletley, was that directed at me? Not sure but if it was, I wasn't talking about Rupert, I was responding to some comment/s here that seemed to imply that Rupert is not allowed to have an opinion on music, because I agree with your statement, it is his opinion and he is allowed to have one :)Avatar ImageKC Nox says: oh dear...buying for the cover...Avatar ImageRobbie Rowe says: Looks a bit more mad than usual in that picture!!! In my opinion.Avatar ImageLinnyish says: If he was in a band just strumming his banjo at the back then he'd definitely be my favourite member of the band.Avatar ImageLinnyish says: Rupert is rich enough to buy all the songs that he wants to buy because he enjoys the music AND to buy songs just because he likes the cover. I've often wanted to buy an album in a music shop because the sleeve amuses me, I don't see why it's a bad thing if Rupert can afford to buy it.Avatar ImageMugglejeff says: Funny picAvatar ImageCarol Carvalho says: Great taste in music but he needs to get acquainted with My Bloody.... heeheheh It is quite good! and probably a whole bunch of other late 80's and early 90's stuff... Oh my, he is so young... :) Avatar Imagemoglet says: I love the fact that he would be happy standing at the back where no one could see him, he absolutely does not seem to see himself as a star and I think that is wonderful. I wouldn't worry about him thinking the anarchist thing is cool, that surely is not going to make him a bad person, and i really don't think he is going to make anybody else become an anarchist because of that comment. As I understand it everybody says he is very laid back and Dan says he is quite lazy!Avatar Imageshellybasson says: Oh, Rupe. You are so cute...Avatar Imagebeewell says: Pic is cool. Not saying that his taste in music is like mine, but to each his own. I have bought albums, cds, etc for the cover even though I didn't like the music. So I think that Ruprint is cool. He speaks his mind and doesn't care if someone else doesn't like it.Avatar ImagexxIBelieveInNarglesxx says: lol,great taste in music :)Avatar ImageMidnightSun321 says: YESSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSS!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! he luvs punk!! and the Clash!!! they r amazing!! and london calling and give em enough rope!!!! yay!!!! he's a boy after my own heart!!! :) :)!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!Avatar ImageHydrus says: I don't see anything wrong with having a cover or song title stir your curiosity enough to buy an artists music. I've bought recordings to find out what they were about without hearing them first. Occasionally I get one I don't care for, but at least I get a listen and can make up my mind. The anarchy philosophy was a very important part of 80's punk, by the way.Avatar ImageLivelaughlovepotter says: Lol great pic! What is he holding? I don't have much to say about the interview, however :P.Avatar ImageAurora_7 says: Haha, he looks like a maniac in that photo. Nice interview.Avatar ImageHarryRichardsPotter says: haha, funny picture Rupe!Avatar ImageHarryRichardsPotter says: haha, funny picture Rupe!Avatar Imageblue4t says: His musical taste reminds me a lot of my sister. The way he dresses reminds me a lot of her friends. It's okay, I guess. I like that he said he'd be in the background if he had a band. He wouldn't be the frontman. I can totally see that from the little we know of his personality.Avatar ImageBrad Ausrotas says: Anarchy has nothing to do with punk. The whole DIY ethos is really what punk is all about. Not spreading chaos or lawlessness, but being your own person and being self-sufficient outside of society. THAT is punk. Rupert's comment on anarchy annoyed me because he thinks it's 'cool' but clearly hasn't looked into it any further than that. He doesn't know the first thing about anarchy, or punk, by the sound of it, which makes me think that he's a tool.Avatar ImageYodatheHobbit says: Sorry for this to come as a great shock to you, but he doesn't need your approval Brad. He's doesn't need to have looked any further into it than that. There is no musical knowledge requirement for life and it's a sign of bad character to judge a person purely on their knowledge of a subject. Unlike you, he's not trying to impress anybody. He's just saying what he likes and there is no need for you to insult him when he's done nothing to you. I think you may have to re-look up you definition of tool as Rupert is not 'one that is being used or manipulated by another'(www.merriam-webster.com) in this interview. His thoughts are his own. Unlike people who claim to know exactly what they're talking about, but may possibly not such as interviewers, VJ's, E! hosts, etc.Avatar ImageTamyris says: Great pic,baby! I am happy to know he is a rock man and not an idiot pop fan. Go Rupes!Avatar ImageTamyris says: Well said YodatheHobbit! Rupert is not a tool, that´s just his point of view.Avatar ImageThe Stew says: Very good choice of music even though the whole liking the "anarchist thing is quite cool" is messed up.
