Corey Taylor has a lot of opinions on things. And, as you know, we often like to share his opinions on things. So today, we thought we’d share Corey Taylor’s opinion on all your posts about him sharing his opinions on things.
Yep, it’s Corey-ception.
Yep, whether it’s sharing his sweary views on some of Australia’s heaviest bands, Linkin Park’s controversial new sound or Nickelback’s “foot” of a frontman Chad Kroeger, the Slipknot/Stonesour figurehead has a lot to say, and y’all have a lot to say about him having a lot to say.
So what does Corey Taylor think of all the ‘What Does Corey Taylor Think’ memes?
“I think it’s hilarious,” CT tells Metal Hammer.“It’s funny, because people act like I just toot my own fucking horn or chime in. I only give my opinion when people like you ask – I’m not online doing this shit.
“I think that meme is in reaction to the fact that my opinion gets picked up by a million fuckin’ media outlets, and then it’s turned into a thousand different news stories, and it’s taken so far out of fucking context that you have to trace it all the way back to the source material to figure out what’s being said.”
“It’s a pain in my ass, however the meme is hilarious,” the maggot master continues.
“I love that it’s used in a way that takes the piss out of me but also takes the piss out of other people as well. It’s saying, ‘Stop doing this clickbait bullshit, we don’t care. If we did care, we would’ve read the fucking interview.’ I think it’s funny.”
Apparently it only pisses him off “a little bit”. “But I get over it”, he adds.
“You have to have thick skin in this business. If I had a dollar for every time I’ve been made fun of, screamed at or talked shit about, I wouldn’t need to do this gig, or I’d be doing it at a whole other opulent level, coming in a gold fucking limo handing out titles for everyone!”
So there you have it, team.
