Slipknot singer Corey Taylor has ripped Maroon 5 frontman Adam Levine for saying that rock music is currently “nowhere” and that all the musical innovation right now is happening in the hip-hop sphere.
“Just because you claim to have ‘Moves Like Jagger’ doesn’t mean you come anywhere close to rocking like Jagger. Tell that schmuck to go back to the f*cking ‘Voice’. [middle finger emoji]”
Levine told Variety during a recent interview:
“Rock music is nowhere, really. I don’t know where it is. If it’s around, no one’s invited me to the party.
“All of the innovation and the incredible things happening in music are in hip-hop. It’s better than everything else. Hip-hop is weird and avant-garde and flawed and real, and that’s why people love it.”
