Speaking with Sweden's Metal Covenant, Kroeger started said this about Stone Sour: "Yeah, 'cause they're trying to be NICKELBACK. Corey Taylor has said some really nasty things about me before in the press. He talks about how easy it is to write a hit song. Well, show me. Show me. Write one. I have yet to hear one. They're okay. But they're not as good as NICKELBACK. They sound like 'NICKELBACK Lite.'"
Chad also had some things to say about Corey's other band, Slipknot. We knew it was only a matter of time before he responded and he did in typical Corey fashion.
Speaking with 98 KUPD in Arizona, Corey said: " "You know what? I've never said it was easy to write a hit song. 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." He also let the world know that he thinks Kroeger has a 'face like a foot' and that he gets along with everyone else in Nickelback. See the full interview below.
