    Music producer and Shellac mastermind Steve Albini has received harsh criticism from Steely Dan fans. This was preceded by a tweet in which he claimed “always been the kind of punk who shits on Steely Dan”.

    Fans of the rock band then accused him, among other things, of how a “arrogant asshole“ to sound. “The Dan”, as fans call the band, would be appreciated by many and would have had a major musical impact.

    Albini then poked fun at the nickname, countering, “go trim your beard“. The band, founded by Donald Fagen and the late Walter Becker, wasted “so much human energy just to sound like a Saturday Night Live opening act“. The feud ended with him on a auction to charity, where a guitar signed by Dave Grohl is for sale to benefit a Chicago NGO.

    Steely Dan was born in New York in 1972. Their 1977 jazz-rock album “Aja” was one of the first albums ever to go platinum in the USA.

    Steve Albini founded various punk and rock bands since the 80s, most recently Shellac, which released a compilation of songs from 1994 and 2004 in 2019. He also wrote for music magazines. He gained notoriety as a producer in the independent scene. He produced the Pixies’ “Surfer Rosa” (1988) and Nirvana’s “In Utero” in 1993.
