Video of the hilarious moment (below) was captured at Stone Sour’s festival set at Chicago Open Air this week, and sees the crowd launch into the anti-Nickelback chant, which gets a huge smile from Taylor.
“You guys are fucking insane,” Taylor tells the crowd.
“Come on, get it out of your system, make some fucking noise out there. Beautiful, crazy bitches.
“I’ll tell you what, we’re going to play you a ‘non-hit song’,” Taylor jokes, before landing another jab at Kroeger, saying, “What a dick.”
Taylor went on to play his Stone Sour ballad ‘Bother’, which you can watch in full below.
The Nickelback and Stone Sour beef kicked off in June when Nickelback frontman Chad Kroeger dissed Taylor and Stone Sour by calling the band “Nickelback Lite” and challenging Taylor to “write a hit song”.
Since then, Taylor has compared Kroeger to KFC, but Colonel Kroeger is yet to respond.
Stone Sour are set to tour Australia later this year off the back of their latest album Hydrograd, so get ready to chant “Fuck Nickelback” at those shows too.
