Corey Taylor has shown in the past that he's not afraid to call it out when he feels that there's a staleness in rock music. Last fall, he shared his disdain for "safe" and "weak" music dominating the landscape. And in a new interview with Cutter's Rockcast (as seen below), Taylor is once again sharing his frustration with acts trying to ape what's been done and present it as their own fresh take on it.
Taylor starts, "I look at some of these bands that sound like this or sound like that or sound like the other guy, and it's just, like, well, they obviously listened to two albums that have been out for a minute. But the ones that really frustrate me are the ones that they take something that's been around forever and then just basically rework it and call it new — even though it's completely derivative."
