Corey Taylor says that he has been “trying to bury” his dispute with NICKELBACK after Chad Kroeger blasted STONE SOUR as “NICKELBACK Lite” and called out Taylor for allegedly saying that it was “easy” to write a hit song.
In an interview posted in June with Sweden’s Metal Covenant, Kroeger said that STONE SOUR was “trying to be NICKELBACK,” adding, “Corey Taylor has said some really nasty things about me before in the press. He talks about how easy it is to write a hit song. Well, show me. Show me. Write one. I have yet to hear one. They’re okay. But they’re not as good as NICKELBACK. They sound like ‘NICKELBACK Lite.'”
During a brand new chat with Junkee, Corey laughed when Kroeger‘s comments were brought up, saying: “I have been fucking trying to bury that for months now! It’s out of my hands, man! [STONE SOUR] played in Sydney [Australia] over the weekend, and people started a ‘Fuck NICKELBACK‘ chant. I’m, like, ‘Fuck, I’m never gonna get away from this!'”
He continued: “It’s so fucking funny, especially when I’m seeing all of these tweets and shit from fucking NICKELBACK fans. I’m, like, ‘He’s the one who fucking started it! I didn’t say a fucking word!’
