Slipknot’s Corey Taylor: “Let Taylor S**ts and One Erection sell f***ing sodas, I don’t give a s**t”

Slipknot’s Corey Taylor is a brave man – he has just p****d off millions of Swifties and Directioners.

The frontman tore strips out of Taylor Swift and One Direction before admitting he had no clue about the launch of Apple Music saying he can’t keep up with “f***ing technology.”

Annoyed by artists who let their music be used commercially, the rocker had a go at “Taylor S**t” and “One Erection” in particular, making himself a target for their legions of fans.

Taylor ranted: “I don’t give a s**t, let the f***ing Taylor S**ts and One Erections sell their f***ing sodas and edible panties, I don’t give a s**t about any of that.

“The second that I’m writing music written specifically to sell somebody a f***ing motorcycle boot, that’s it for me, I’m done, I’m f***ing out.”

When asked by NME magazine if he would back Tidal or Apple Music, Taylor said: “Of course not, because they can’t use our music to sell anything.

“I thought the big thing was between Tidal and Spotify, I never even realised that there’s now a f***ing third player on the f***ing rack. It’s so hard to keep up with the way technology’s f***ing going anymore. I’m surprised people haven’t just dropped their tools and been like, ‘F**k it, I’m out.'”

Sounds like he could do with a nap.
