As we gleefully reported yesterday, Chad Kroeger took aim at Corey Taylor during an interview, calling Stone Sour “Nickelback Lite”, calling Slipknot’s masks “a gimmick” (fair point) and accused Taylor of saying nasty stuff about him in the past (also a fair point).

Obviously Taylor has responded, on Arizona rock radio station 98 KUPD becuase they got in first, and kudos to them!

“I was sitting there trying to figure out how I was going to handle this, because it’s so funny,” Taylor said. “I don’t know what the hell planet he’s living on. Apparently it’s planet Kroeger, and there must be good weed there, cause he’s an idiot.”

The two bands share a label, too, which means this isn’t just random slinging.

“I love all the dudes in that band”, Taylor continued. “I love Mike [Kroeger]. Everybody else in that band I’m very, very cool with; I’ve hung out with them. It’s just ‘Face Like a Foot’ who I can’t really hang out with. He’s got a face like a foot. Am I wrong? … So, dude, curl up in bed with your Hello Kitty pillow and shut up.

“I was so cued up to say some stuff about him, and then I just started reading all the comments online. I don’t have to say a damn thing.

“He is not a liked person. You can run your mouth all you want. All I know is I’ve been voted ‘Sexiest Dude in Rock’ wearing a mask. You’ve been voted ‘Ugliest Dude in Rock’ twice without one. Stick that up your ass.”

That’s that then.
