Slipknot, according to Corey Taylor, has become a source of shame

Slipknot frontman Corey Taylor shared in a recent conversation on the ‘Zach Sang Show’ that their music isn’t everyone’s cup of tea. Taylor even revealed that his home town Iowa is particularly ashamed of the band by explaining: “We were judged for so f*cking long about who we were; I mean, we came from The Fringe, and what we represented is still anathema to a lot of people in Iowa to this day.” He added: “There are a lot of people in Iowa who are very ashamed of the fact that Slipknot is from there, and it’s because of this newfound resurgence and conservative bullshit.” As much as Iowa was a purple state when I was there, it’s now very red, and I know a lot of folks who are upset about it.” When Zach couldn’t believe what Taylor had to say regarding Iowa’s conservative ideas, which also influence their thoughts on Slipknot’s music, the singer said: “Not if you’re from there and know the people.

” There are still a lot of f*cking guys in Des Moines, Iowa, who are furious. I run into guys I’ve known for 30 years, and they give me the side-eye.” Aside from differing political viewpoints, Corey also mentioned other Des Moines bands that did not achieve the same level of popularity, adding: “There’s so many bitter pricks in that goddamn town, and they’re just hanging on, like they don’t want to admit they didn’t want it [success] as much as we did.” And I’m not going to sit here and say they didn’t deserve it because there were so many excellent bands in the scene from which we emerged.” The rocker went on: “But, for whatever reason, they didn’t push hard enough, and even when we did make it, and we tried to shine that spotlight on the Des Moines scene because it was almost in a weird way like a pseudo-Seattle moment.” Corey Taylor’s visit on the ‘Zach Sang Show’ can be seen here.
