Slipknot and Stone Sour frontman Corey Taylor has responded (again) to comments made by Chad Kroeger, after the Nickelback frontman dissed Taylor by calling Stone Sour “Nickelback Lite” and challenging him to write a good song.
After subtlety responding to Kroeger with a retweet yesterday, Taylor has now spoken out about Kroeger and his comments, telling Arizona radio station 98KUPD that Kroeger is “an idiot” who’s “got a face like a foot”.
“You know what? I’ve never said it was easy to write a hit song,” Taylor said.
“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.”
Referring to Kroeger’s comment about Slipknot supposedly having to wear masks to be noticed in the industry, Taylor said, “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.
“I love Mike [Kroeger, Nickelback bassist and Chad’s brother],” Taylor said.
“I love… 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?”
Taylor continued, saying, “See, that’s the hard thing: I can’t even say anything about the band, Nickelback, because none of ’em have an issue with us. It’s him. So, dude, curl up in bed with your ‘Hello Kitty’ pillow and shut up.”

The Taylor vs. Kroeger ‘beef’ has also seen perennial meme band Smash Mouth chime in, for some reason — most likely in an attempt to stay relevant.
Elsewhere in the world of Stone Sour, the band are set to tour Australia later this year.
