I love Slipknot and I love Kanye West so I'm finding it difficult to pick sides here. I can see why everyone was all like "bro. You are NOT the greatest living rock star" when Kanye claimed he was during his Glastonbury set. But I also really dislike seeing <3 Corey Taylor <3, one of my teen heroes, recording a video in which he discredits Kanye's claim like a curmudgeonly internet metal nerd.
It's got a really neckbeard, fedora tipping vibe to it. This is only further compounded by Corey's decision to write a book called You're Making Me Hate You, in which he slags off pop music and all sorts of other fun things most people like.
This is truly compounded by this picture of Corey wearing a fedora!!
Debates of world's greatest aside, I will confidently say that Slipknot might be the world's greatest live act. They put on the most outrageous show you'll ever see. It makes you want to swing your arms around and scream about its greatness to anyone who will listen and everyone who won't. Anyways, why not read this interview with Corey Taylor, by yours truly.
SHAMELESS PLUG ALERT.
