Slipknot’s Corey Taylor Blasts New Artists: “I Hate All New Rock For The Most Part”

Slipknot and Stone Sour frontman Corey Taylor has discussed the current state of rock music and blasted new artists while sharing his thoughts about the genre he defended and played for a long time.

Speaking to Cutter’s Rockcast, Corey Taylor, who released his debut solo album ‘CMFT’ on October 2, 2020, stated that he sick off that people who failed in one genre and decided to go rock. He also touched people who frustrate him.

“I look at some of these bands that sound like this or sound like that or sound like the other guy, and it’s just, like, well, they obviously listened to two albums that have been out for a minute.”

“But the ones that really frustrate me are the ones that they take something that’s been around forever and then just basically rework it and call it new – even though it’s completely derivative. You know the band they’re ripping off – they’re not even trying to rip off a bunch of bands; they’re ripping off one band.

“But the younger generation picks them up and says, ‘This is our blah blah blah’, because they’re tired of old people telling them that the music that came before them was better. And I don’t know who’s right, but I know both are wrong, because we should be encouraging everything.

“I’m just as bad. I’m the worst old fogey dude shaking his cane ever. And I hate everything. I hate all new rock for the most part. I [hate] the artists who failed in one genre and decided to go rock – and I think he knows who he is. But that’s another story. I’m the worst. And I hate everything.”

Slipknot works hard for a new album
