Superheroes are bigger than themselves. They mean something. They belong to the world. And they don't have a choice about that.

Andrew W.K. is as close as New York City has to a real-life superhero. He is also a musician, rock-star, television personality, motivational speaker and de facto guru.

First introduced to the world by his 2001 album of party-metal anthems 'I Get Wet' (and its bloody-nosed cover, left), W.K. has since released three mainstream rock records, toured the world (finding particular success in Japan) and diversified his career to include motivational speaking, ringtone composition, improvisational piano experimentation and finding creative ways to bleed in public.

In 2011 he will release his new rock album, which he is currently producing.

Our (still existing) bros at Asylum UK recently sat down with WK for an unbearably emotional and frankly uncomfortable interview.
