Travis Barker has stood up for his fiancée Kourtney Kardashian after she was criticised for wearing a heavy metal t-shirt.

Last September, the Blink-182 drummer was snapped out and about with his socialite partner, who was donning a Cannibal Corpse top (that's a heavy metal band, in case, like Kourtney, you didn't know).

Of course, many people aren't fans of people sporting clothes from a scene they know nothing of - people such as the band's former vocalist, Chris Barnes.

Sharing the snap on Twitter, he labelled her a 'poser' and shared a thumbs down emoji.

However, Barker has come to the defence of his wife-to-be, describing Barnes' take as 'the lamest sh*t ever' - though he admitted Kourtney isn't familiar with the music of Cannibal Corpse.

In an interview with Revolver, the 46-year-old said: "Obviously my fiancée doesn't listen to Cannibal Corpse, but I do. I grew up loving them.

"For [someone] to mention that in a negative light — f***ing lame, you know? She's wearing it because she's cold. She's not claiming she knows every song. But I do! I bought every album, and I learned how to play every album.

"I grew up a punk-rock kid, [but] everything with punk rock — 'I'm more punk than you' — just f**k all that. Be stoked that people are into music. Music is beautiful! It changes people's lives. It creates the best memories. Just celebrate it, you know?"

Kourtney's stylist earlier told Vogue that she had borrowed the shirt from Barker, describing his wardrobe as 'an archive itself.'

Barker's defence poses an interesting question - if you found yourself trapped outside in the freezin' cold, with a Scouting For Girls jumper the only garment in sight, would you wear it?

Anyway, despite Barnes' comments, Barker is still very much a lover of Cannibal Corpse, which admittedly sounds a bit wrong.

He said: "But, yeah ... I have a gang of Cannibal Corpse t-shirts.

"I still love them. I have a gang of King Diamond t-shirts and rare Slayer shirts because I f**king love those bands. I grew up on them.

"Even though I'm, you know, whatever the world wants to view me as — 'Oh, that's Blink-182's drummer' — actually that guy was playing in a garage with a bunch of speed-metal kids listening to D.R.I. and S.O.D. I enjoyed every f**king minute of it."
