Slipknot’s Corey Taylor Says Imagine Dragons Are “Awful” And Replacing Nickelback As Rock’s Most Derided Band


Though Slipknot/Stone Sour frontman Corey Taylor and Nickelback frontman Chad Kroeger have beefed in the past, there’s always the potential they could one day unite against a common enemy: Imagine Dragons. During a recent appearance on Steve Jones‘ LA-based radio show, ‘Jonesy’s Jukebox‘, Taylor stated that he that Imagine Dragons have been taking on the mantle of the most hated band away from Nickelback in rock. Regarding that, he said:

“…They [Nickelback] are passing the baton to Imagine Dragons right now, and I love it. They’re awful, so that’s cool. And they’re from Vegas, so I’m gonna go home to protests.

Can’t show my face in this town now. Yeah, people are slowly coming back to appreciate Nickelback and then just turning their irksome ire towards Imagine Dragons.”

Taylor is hardly the first band to slam Imagine Dragons however, as Queens Of The Stone Age frontman Josh Homme bashed them onstage way back in 2014.
