Nickleback’s Chad Kroeger Slams Stone Sour’s Corey Taylor In New Interview
Nickleback vocalist Chad Kroeger has started a total sh*t storm with his recent statement against Slipknot and Stone Sour vocalist Corey Taylor.
Kroeger began throwing shade at Taylor during an interview, referring to the maggot master’s side-band Stone Sour as “Nickleback Lite.”
Seriously… we can’t make this sh*t up.
“Corey Taylor has said some really nasty things about me before in the press. He talks about how easy it is to write a hit song. Well, show me. Show me. Write one. I have yet to hear one. They’re okay. But they’re not as good as Nickelback. They sound like ‘Nickelback Lite’.” He says.
Chad then decided to aim fire at Taylor’s main band, Slipknot, saying;
“They had to put on masks and jump around. How good can your music be if you’ve gotta beat each other up on stage, throw up in your own masks every night…?”
“I mean, music shouldn’t come with a gimmick; music should just be music. None of my favourite music comes with a gimmick. And he got tired of sitting behind a mask — he wanted people to know what he looks like — so he started Stone Sour.” He continued.
But wait, there’s more…
“I can’t think of another band that’s as diverse as [Nickelback]. I can’t,” Kroeger bragged during the interview (via Blabbermouth).
“And I don’t think that’s me talking from pride or ego. I mean, you’re sitting across the table. You know what you’re talking about.” He finished.
As the journalist conducting the interview used Stone Sour as an example of one rock band who is also known to be “very diverse,” Kroeger snapped back saying that Slipknot are “trying to be Nickleback.”
We can’t help but think that Taylor will surely retaliate and have his own say on Kroeger’s words in the near future, but until then I guess we’ll just leave you with actual video footage of the incident.
