Corey Taylor Slams Nickleback’s Chad Kroeger’s Comments On Stone Sour Being “Nickleback Lite”
Yesterday we reported on Nickleback vocalist Chad Kroeger, who had knowingly 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 with Metal Covenant, referring to the maggot master’s side-band Stone Sour as “Nickleback Lite.”
“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.
“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.”
Today, Taylor fired back at Kroeger’s words, saying “You know what? I’ve never said it was easy to write a hit song,”
“I don’t know what the hell planet he’s living on. Apparently it’s Planet Kroeger, and there must be good weed there, ’cause he’s an idiot.”
Taylor continued “You can run your mouth all you want. All I know is I’ve been voted ‘Sexiest Dude In Rock’ wearing a mask. You’ve been voted ‘Ugliest Dude In Rock’ twice without one. Stick that up your a**.”
“I love Mike [Kroeger], I love… Everybody else in that band I’m very, very cool with; I’ve hung out with them. It’s just ‘Face Like A Foot’ who I can’t really hang out with. He’s got a face like a foot. Am I wrong?”
It looks like Taylor also got his claws out with a dig against Kroeger’s wife, Avril Lavigne.
He stated “See, that’s the hard thing, I can’t even say anything about the band, Nickleback, because none of ’em have an issue with us. It’s him. So, dude, curl up in bed with your Hello Kitty pillow and shut up.”
