Slipknot’s Corey Taylor On The Rock And Roll Hall Of Fame: “It’s A Pile Of Garbage”

During a recent interview with Lazer 103.3, Corey Taylor called the Rock And Roll Hall Of Fame “a pile of garbage” and said that Slipknot would probably reject the chance to be inducted into the institution. Considering the Rock Hall has continued to snub legendary acts like Iron Maiden and Judas Priest, his views are not surprising.

Taylor said the following:

“First of all, I don’t care about that Hall, ’cause I think it’s a pile of garbage. They don’t honor anything except pop music, really, and they only really induct real rock bands when they have to cave to pressure. They disrespected so many bands over the past by putting others in before the ones that actually deserve it, that I would probably go the way of the Sex Pistols. I’d be, like, ‘Your Hall is a sham. I don’t care if I’m a part of it or not. You have no idea what the spirit of rock and roll is actually about. So take this and shove it up your you-know-what.’ So, that’s basically where I’m at. And, obviously, I’m not getting any brownie points, and I probably will never be nominated, but I don’t really care.”

He went on to say that he doesn’t think Slipknot fans “would actually care if [they] were in [the Rock Hall] to begin with.” He also added:

“It’s not gonna stop us from playing. I mean, think about it: football players, they retire and then they go [into the Football Hall Of Fame]. We’re still going. Why would I wanna go in the Hall Of Fame if we’re still killing?”
