The rocker admits he was disgusted to hear Nine Inch Nails' song Head Like a Hole has been circulating the Internet as part of an unofficial 'mash-up' with Jepsen's chart-topping pop track, and insists he finds the project "insulting".
He tells Tmz.com, "Honestly I find the whole thing silly and partly offensive... I find it kind of insulting. It has trivialised something we've done. I am proud of what we've done and to take art - just to be a joke - I don't have any respect for it."
However, he is convinced the remix, titled Call Me a Hole, will soon be forgotten, adding, "In 48 hours no one will even know it existed."
