Last month, Nickelback frontman called out Corey Taylor and Stone Sour, saying they were "Nickelback lite" and challenged them to write a hit song. Corey Taylor fired back twice, saying Chad Kroeger has a face like a foot, and that Kroeger's music is basically the KFC of rock.
Now in an interview with 93.3 WMMR, Taylor specifies that Kroeger's band apologized to him, and that is' just Kroeger who's "Captain Ego from Planet Douche." Tell us how you really feel, Corey!
"That just tells you the level of ego you're dealing with. And I've said this since day one — it's not the band. Because the band turned around… As soon as that story hit, the band called and apologized. They were, like, 'It's not us. We promise. It's this guy. We don't…' And I had hung out with the band before, and they're super-cool dudes. So I was, like… Well, I figured it wasn't them. So I don't want people holding it against the band, because it's not them. It's Captain Ego from Planet Douche."
In the end, I don't think either one really takes these shots at each other seriously. Kroeger and Taylor are both very successful musicians, likely Kroeger more so than Taylor financially, so who cares! Though it is funny as hell to follow.
