It all started in 2017 when Nickelback frontman Chad Kroeger insulted Slipknot.
“How good can your music be if you’ve gotta beat each other up onstage, throw up in your own mask every night?” Kroeger said of the band.
Corey Taylor of Slipknot was quick to respond, saying that Nickelback “is to rock what KFC is to chicken” and that Kroeger has “a face like a foot.”
All was quiet for the past two years until Taylor decided to insult the band once again on Sex Pistols guitarist Steve Jones’ radio show, “Jonesy’s Jukebox”, where he called Nickelback “the scapegoat of rock and roll.” To make matters worse, Jones agreed.
That being said, Taylor is handing the title of the worst band off to Imagine Dragons.
“However, they are passing the baton to Imagine Dragons right now, and I love it,” Taylor said. “They’re awful, so that’s cool. And they’re from Vegas, so I’m gonna go home to protests. Can’t show my face in this town now. Yeah, people are slowly coming back to appreciate Nickelback and then just turning their irksome ire towards Imagine Dragons.”
The “Thunder” singers have yet to comment.
