Chad Kroeger: Stone Sour 'Sound Like Nickelback Lite,' Slipknot Are a 'Gimmick'

Nickelback's Chad Kroeger Slams Stone Sour Calls Slipknot a'Gimmick

It seems Chad Kroeger has had it with Nickelback being the punching bag of the rock world.

In a very freakish interview with Metal Covenant, Kroeger was not only hanging shit on the hard rock singer, but his own bands songwriting process referring to his own band as "a bunch of idiots" and referring to their song writing process as "silly". He then took a swig from his beer and directed his comments at the Stone Sour singer: "Corey Taylor has said some really nasty things about me before in the press". How good can your music be if you've gotta beat each other up onstage, throw up in your own mask every night? "He wanted people to know what he looks like, so he started Stone Sour".

Speaking with Metal Covenant (video below), Kroeger first began praising the musical diversity of Nickelback, stating, "I can't think of another band that's as diverse as we are". For once, I think we all agree... The two were once labelmates back when Nickelback and Taylor's other group Stone Sour were signed to Roadrunner Records.

He saved the harshest comments for last, saying "music shouldn't come with a gimmick".

It should be noted that Corey Taylor founded Stone Sour in 1992, a full three years before the formation of Slipknot and five years before Taylor even joined Slipknot.

He claimed to be "very, very bitter" over the record label allegedly using funds acquired from Slipknot to make Nickelback "happy", while not helping his band out as much as they should have.

The interviewer said that Kroeger "had a good point".

"MTV won't fucking touch us, radio barely fucking touches us and here comes those fucking pretty boys... and the lead singer looks like Shaggy from "Scooby Doo"... and what the fuck am I supposed to do?"

Both Nickelback and Stone Sour have new albums seeing a June 2017 release.
