He may not seem like a Deftones fan, but The Weeknd has said that the band inspired some of his early work.

Posting to Twitter on Wednesday, The Weeknd shared that the band was an inspiration to his 2012 Trilogy mixtapes.

“DEFTONES HUGE INSPO DURING TRILGOY ERA ,” he wrote.

Are you surprised that Deftones were an inspiration to The Weeknd? Should The Weeknd and Deftones collaborate?
