Corey Taylor Says He Hates The Young Artists Who Simply Rework Old Rock Albums And Call It New
Slipknot and Stone Sour frontman Corey Taylor spoke in a recent interview with Cutter’s Rockcast and talked about the style of the new generation musicians.
In the conversation, Corey mentioned the new generation bands that reworking an old song and calling it a new sound and said that they are the ones who really annoy Corey all the time.
Furthermore, Corey pointed out that some of the young listeners are really liking these kinds of music because they are tired of people telling them the music was much better in the old days.
Additionally, Corey also admitted that he is just as bad as they are because he really doesn’t like the new types of rock music and slammed the people who failed to do their own genre and decided to make rock afterward.
Here is what Corey Taylor said:
“I look at some of these bands that sound like this or sound like that or sound like the other guy, and it’s just, like, well, they obviously listened to two albums that have been out for a minute.
But the ones that really frustrate me are the ones that they take something that’s been around forever and then just basically rework it and call it new — even though it’s completely derivative. You know the band they’re ripping off — they’re not even trying to rip off a bunch of bands; they’re ripping off one band.
But the younger generation picks them up and says, ‘This is our blah blah blah,’ because they’re tired of old people telling them that the music that came before them was better. And I don’t know who’s right, but I know both are wrong, because we should be encouraging everything.”
“I’m just as bad. I’m the worst old fogey dude shaking his cane ever. And I hate everything. I hate all new rock for the most part. I [hate] the artists who failed in one genre and decided to go rock — and I think he knows who he is.
But that’s another story. I’m the worst. And I hate everything. And people are used to that with me, though. But I have also encouraged the younger generation to think past the boundaries of what we listen to. Do something that feels fresh; it may not have to sound fresh, but it’s gotta feel fresh. If it’s dead, then people are gonna treat it as dead, man.”
