The legendary Beatle Paul McCartney discovered some filters on Instagram, and started to have fun with it. Fans even claimed that the 79-year-old artist “updated the definitions of cringe” with his recent discoveries.

In fact, Paul even introduced his new band, which he calls Linstrom. But calm down, actually, this band is nothing more than them and their version with filters. According to McCartney, Linstrom is a “heavy metal folk” band made up of four artists and a drunk businessman.
