Simon Pegg at Glastonbury 2022: “I’m now a 52-year-old BTS fan – all music is worth listening to” 

"All music is worth listening to"

Simon Pegg has spoken of his newfound love at BTS during a backstage interview with NME at Glastonbury 2022. Watch the clip here.

Pegg was attending the festival as an ambassador for Greenpeace, and also to enjoy the much-awaited return of the event. When asked his most controversial music opinion, the actor and comedian shared the story of how he became an avid BTS fan.

“My controversial music opinion is that all music is worth listening to,” he said. “Find the stuff you like but don’t dismiss music you don’t like as being bad, just because you think it’s bad because someone else thinks that’s great.


“I didn’t like until my kid sat me down and said ‘Dad, listen to this song’ and I was like, ‘Oh my god, BTS are amazing’,” Pegg told us. “So here I am now, a 52-year-old ARMY, BTS fan.”
