It’s another war of words between Nickelback frontman Chad Kroeger and Slipknot’s Corey Taylor.
The two singers have thrown some major shade back and forth at one another for the past few months and now Taylor is addressing their feud once again.
Earlier this year, Kroeger made a dig at both of Taylor’s bands. First, he called Slipknot a gimmick and then said his other band, Stone Sour, was just a Nickleback rip off. Taylor responded to these jabs by saying that Kroeger’s “face looks like a foot”.
When asked about their ongoing feud back in June, Taylor compared Kroeger’s music to fast food. “Chad Kroeger is to rock what KFC is to chicken. Is that wrong? I feel like I’m not wrong. I’ll still eat it, but I’m not gonna feel good about it. It tastes like the same thing,” he said.
In a new interview with 93.3 WMMR on Wednesday, Taylor said that everyone from Nickleback reached out to Taylor to apologize … except for Kroeger.
“That just tells you the level of ego you’re dealing with. And I’ve said this since day one, it’s not the band. As soon as that story hit, the band called and apologized. They were like, ‘It’s not us, we promise. It’s this guy. We don’t…’ And I had hung out with the band before and they’re super-cool dudes,” the singer explained.
Taylor wants people to know his issue isn’t with the entire band, just Kroeger. “I don’t want people holding it against the band, because it’s not them. It’s Captain Ego from Planet Douche,” Taylor said.
According to Taylor, this all began because of something he said drunkenly a very long time ago. Unfortunately, he doesn’t remember what it was. “And I haven’t said anything since. I don’t even think about him. For real. This came so far out of left field that I woke up to everyone, like, blowing me up. And I was like, ‘Really?!'” he said.
