Taylor first mentioned his hatred for what he called the “hippie garbage” track during a chat with the Zach Sang Show earlier this month. In the interview, he explained why CMF2‘s “All I Want Is Hate” was written in response to the Beatles cut.

Now, Taylor has reiterated his disdain for the 1967 non-album Beatles track. In a new video segment where Taylor reacts to “shit talk” sent in by his fans, one listener mentioned his Beatles dig from the Zach Sang Show and pressed back on it.
The fan in question, Bryce B., argued his take that The Beatles’ “All You Need Is Love” is the best Beatles song. Of course, Taylor wasn’t having it.

“No, it’s not,” Taylor responds to Bryce, taking a toying yet menacing tone. “It’s a piece of shit.”
What Did Taylor First Say About It?
On Zach Sang Aug. 8, Taylor explained, “[‘All I Need Is Hate’] is satirical. It’s actually a reaction to one of my least favorite songs on the planet, which was written by one of the greatest bands of all time. I don’t know how big of a Beatles fan you are — first of all, they are one of the best bands that ever lived, and what they accomplished in that short amount of time will never be replicated.” (via Far Out)
He continued, “However, ‘All You Need Is Love’ is one of the biggest pieces of shit that I’ve ever heard in my life. And every time I hear it, I feel like I’m getting shot at. Put it that way — it’s that bad.”
Taylor added, “That song ‘All I Want Is Hate’ is actually a retort to that. So if you listen to my song, it’s a pseudo-reflection of that song.”
