Vampire Weekend's Ezra Koenig gets "annoyed" by the idea that he is too intelligent.
The 25-year-old admitted class is something the New York-based band are asked about on a regular basis.
He said: "The one that that really annoys me is how quick people are to link educations and intelligence with class.
Koenig, who is the fourth generation of his family to attend an Ivy League university, highlighted he had financial aid to attend higher education.
He added: "I got financial aid so I could go to Columbia and it's natural for me to assume you can be educated and not have a lot of money.
"Unfortunately it's also been natural for some people to think that just because we wrote a song called 'Mansard Roof' we must be rich, spoiled and completely out of touch."
He concluded to The Scotsman: "Are they really saying that you should only have access to such mundane information as goddamn roof styles if your parents are investment bankers?"
