When asked to share a surprising fact about her taste in music, Williams, 41, said people would be surprised to know that she loves listening to the iconic Toronto rock band, Our Lady Peace.
“Oh, I went to the show for Our Lady Peace recently. It was a small show and they literally sounded just like their album and I was like, ‘Oh my god, this is nuts! I love their albums!’,” she gushed.
More specifically, her favourite tracks are “Clumsy” and “Superman’s Dead”.

“I mean, what was I doing singing that song? I didn’t even understand the lyrics. I was like, ‘Serena, you should not be singing this’,” Williams poked fun at her younger self listening to the group’s 1997 hit.
Elsewhere, the 23-Grand Slam holder’s first concert happened to be another famous rock band- Green Day. She attended their Dookie album tour at 14 years old.
