Liam Gallagher is never one to hold back, this time aiming his animus at acclaimed French duo Daft Punk.

Referring to "Get Lucky," the band's popular new song with Pharrell Williams, Gallager spewed some vitriolic remarks during an interview with Sony's MU streaming service: “I’d write that in a f—ing hour. I don’t know what the fuss is about, you know what I mean? It’s like, f— off, give me a f—ing break.”

The former Oasis frontman, who is prone to rants and generally aggressive behavior, also insulted Daft Punk's signature masks.

“I am not going to have people wear disguises," he said. "“Take your f—ing helmet off. Let’s see what you look like sans helmet, whatever you’re called.”

What they're "called" are No. 1 recording artists. The synth-pop duo latest album, "Random Access Memories," was released May 21 in the United States and is expected to climb to No. 1 on the Billboard albums chart. "Get Lucky" currently sits at No. 10 on the Hot 100 chart and at No. 3 on the Dance/Club Play Songs chart.

Naturally, Daft Punk weren't the only much-loved recording artists Gallagher paid mind to in this latest interview. "My arse is better than Beyonce's," he claimed.

Beady Eye, Gallagher's current band, will release their second album June 10. Both Beyonce and Beady Eye will perform at the V Festival in August.
