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 fucking ‘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.”
