"You know that part in School of Rock where I sing a part of that monstrous %cLed Zeppelin% jam 'Immigrant Song'? And it's super b***hin' and the raddest part of the movie," he said. "Well, it's come to my attention, that someone kinda stole that chunk of our movie and put it in their movie."

"That's right, I'm talking about 'Thor: Ragnarok'. Totally bit our style. Totally poached our jam and now they are parading around town like they thought of it!" he added. "Well, you don't get to do that and get away with it bro. I'm calling you out Thor. This is a challenge. I challenge you to a battle, a battle of the jams!"
