Nickelback has had their fair share of critics, but now the band’s frontman Chad Kroeger has some criticism of his own. In an interview with Metal Covenant, Kroeger threw some shade at Stone Sour and Corey Taylor.
As transcribed by Loudwire:
“[Stone Sour’s] trying to be Nickelback.
“They’re okay, but they’re not as good as Nickelback. They sound like ‘Nickelback Lite.'[Slipknot] had to put on masks and jump around. How good can your music be if you’ve got to beat each other up on stage, throw up in your own masks every night?
“Music shouldn’t come with a gimmick.”
[Taylor] got tired of sitting behind a mask — he wanted people to know what he looks like — so he started Stone Sour.”
