Slipknot frontman says that Imagine Dragons is worse than Nickelback



During his guest appearance on Jonesy's Jukebox, a radio show hosted by Steve Jones of the Sex Pistols, Corey Taylor of Slipknot stated, "[Nickelback] are passing the baton to Imagine Dragons. And I love it. They’re awful, so that’s cool." He later stated, "And they’re from Vegas so I’m gonna go home to protests. Can’t show my face in this town now. People are slowly coming back to appreciate Nickelback and then just turning their irksome ire towards Imagine Dragons."

Taylor and Chad Kroeger from Nickelback have exchanged from harsh words over the years, beginning when Taylor said Kroeger looked like Shaggy from Scooby-Doo. In 2017, Kroeger reignited the feud by calling Slipknot a gimmick.
