You knew it was coming. Corey Taylor has responded via interview (with 98 KUPD) to the Nickelback frontman’s negative statements about Taylor’s bands. Kroeger mentioned how he feels Stone Sour is ‘Nickelback Lite’ and that Slipknot is only a “gimmick.” You can read Taylor’s response and watch the interview below.

“I was sitting there trying to figure out how I was going to handle this, because it’s so funny.

I don’t know what the hell planet he’s living on. Apparently it’s Planet Kroeger, and there must be good weed there, ’cause he’s an idiot.

I was so cued up to say some stuff about him, and then I just started reading all the comments online. I don’t have to say a damn thing. He is not a liked person.

You can run your mouth all you want. All I know is I’ve been voted ‘Sexiest Dude In Rock’ wearing a mask. You’ve been voted ‘Ugliest Dude In Rock’ twice without one. Stick that up your ass.

Everybody else in that band I’m very, very cool with; I’ve hung out with them. It’s just ‘Face Like A Foot’ who I can’t really hang out with. He’s got a face like a foot. Am I wrong? … So, dude, curl up in bed with your Hello Kitty pillow and shut up.”

And what a great response it was…
