Slipknot’s Corey Taylor: “Stop Whining And Put Your God Damn Mask On”


Slipknot, etc. frontman Corey Taylor has decades of experience wearing a mask, particularly in uncomfortably sweaty and intense situations. Speaking recently with Triple M (hear it below), he had the following to offer in response as to whether or not he had any words of wisdom to share with his Australian fans as mandatory masks have come into place in select cities amid a COVID-19 spike:

“…Stop whining and put your god damn mask on. This isn’t an isolated incident. My country’s loaded with these dumbasses that think it is some sort of political standpoint or some sort of partisan garbage. And I’m just like, ‘Are you serious?’ Just because you haven’t had anyone in your life affected by it doesn’t mean that it’s not a real thing.”

“I once had to wear a full head mask for eight hours while doing Slipknot press. Eight hours straight – didn’t take it off, but these people are going to bitch and moan about wearing it for 10 minutes at the market? Get over yourselves.”
