Slipknot’s Corey Taylor Guests On New Kid Bookie Song “Game”

Corey Taylor (Slipknot, Stone Sour) is featured on a new Kid Bookie song titled “Game.” The track was produced by Good Charlotte’s Billy Martin and an official video for it can be found below:

Kid Bookie commented:

“A song for you to scream ‘go fuck yourself’ to the face of all gatekeepers. Heavy culture is evolving and being part of the evolution with the teachers who taught us how to evolve is exactly where we need to be right now, an obnoxiously loud, violent piece of music to reflect the tide of the mood, not everything is pretty and sometimes mirroring that sonically is truth in audio. Awoooh!”

Taylor added:

“This song is the perfect blend of smooth and violent. The tones are sick. Book and I are ready for all takers on it. Rated ‘C’ for ‘Crank The Fuck Out Of It!’”

Slipknot’s Corey Taylor To Machine Gun Kelly: You Don’t Get To “Run Your Mouth About Bands That Have Been Doing This For 20 Fucking Years”

Last year, Machine Gun Kelly made headlines after insulting Slipknot onstage and feuding with Corey Taylor on social media. Now, during a Q&A session on the 2022 ShipRocked cruise, Taylor discussed the situation further, saying that the rapper turned rocker shouldn’t “run [his] mouth about bands that have been doing this for 20 fucking years.”

Taylor said the following:

“For those of you that don’t know, MGK doesn’t like me very much. And let me follow that up by saying I don’t care.

I won’t fill you in on the whole fucking story because you can go online and look it all up. However, I will say this: he maintains that I started it. The truth is he started it. Now, I will explain to you why.

If you don’t know, they asked me to do a tune with him. They sent it to me. I didn’t dig it. And I tried to do something with it because of my respect for Travis [Barker], because he and I worked together before. They sent me these really weird notes and they wanted me to sing his words. And I just said, ‘I’m not gonna do it.’ And I sent an e-mail. I posted that e-mail. And I didn’t hear back from him. And I thought it was done. Fast forward about eight months, and Machine Gun Kelly is doing this weird Instagram Live interview with Allie from Spotify. And he goes off on this fucking rant about rock stars and comfortable shoes. It sounds as smart as you think it is. … I mean, spit was coming out of his face. And I’m watching it and I’m going, ‘You fuck. You’ve been here for five minutes, basically, and you’re gonna fucking run your mouth about bands that have been doing this for 20 fucking years, like in the mud, in the dirt. They’re gonna wear whatever the fuck they want. You’re gonna walk in here with your fucking black tongue and try to talk some shit on some bands that would fucking circle your ass? Fuck you.’ So when I had my opportunity to say something, I did. And I didn’t call him out. I just said what I said about people failing in one genre and sliding over to another. And that upset him. … Weirdly, we’re in Chicago on the same show, and we’re playing basically at the same time. And he wasn’t happy that there were a lot of people at our show — and I do mean a lot.

But he, to this day, maintains that I started it. It’s, like, the only reason I said what I said is because he said what he said. You don’t get to walk into a genre with the history, with the work… The fact that this genre really doesn’t get the fucking respect that it deserves. You don’t get to walk in as some weird substitute teacher and pretend that you can tell us what to wear — boots, shoes, house fucking shoes, slippers. Why don’t you suck every inch of my dick? You don’t get to do that. And these are bands that maybe I don’t even fucking know, but guess what? I fucking respect them because they get on fucking stage and they fucking give every fucking thing they’ve got.”
