Corey Taylor on Trump: “The Republicans need to f**king disavow Donald Trump if they want to be taken seriously at all.”

Posted by on December 23, 2015

Every year end becomes a perfect time for reflection about what happened during the previous 12 months and while many try to think about the positive things that occurred, others want to discuss the things that annoy them the most and turn their disgust into a huge rant and what better person to rant about everything than Slipknot’s Corey Taylor.

Rolling Stone sat down with the frontman to just talk about different things like his favorite album, Faith No More’s Sol Invictus or Mad Max‘s star Tom Hardy promoting the movie by saying “It was like Cirque Du Soleil meets fucking Slipknot.” but Taylor took the chance to vent on some things that bothered him the most this year:

I think I can speak for everyone when I say Trump running for president. That just fucking sums it up. I can remember when [former KKK Grand Wizard] David Duke ran for president, and people scoffed at him. It was a joke. Like, how do you even consider the fact that you’ve got a shot at this? And now here comes Trump. And just because he’s a fucking talking head on television, people are taking him seriously. Between that and the fact that he is appealing to some crazy fucking fear in the conservative wing of America, it is scaring me to be honest. The Republicans need to fucking disavow him if they want to be taken seriously at all — not only by middle-of-the-road America, but by the rest of the fucking world.

When asked who was his chosen candidate, it seems like Taylor is going for the Bern on this elections:

Bernie’s the one who’s got my interest. Everything about Hillary seems prepackaged and planned. Obviously, I don’t know her as a person, but everything about her seems forced. Bernie Sanders, however, just doesn’t give a shit. And that is so fucking refreshing. That dude has balls the size of church bells. I think if it came down to the debate, Sanders would shred Trump. Shred him. And I think he’s got 10 years on Trump.

And Bernie seems like he believes in what he’s saying; he’s trying to bring people together instead of pull them apart. And between Paris, San Bernardino, Black Lives Matter, this country is coming apart at the seams and we don’t need someone ripping us apart. We need someone to bring us together.

His rant didn’t stop there, when asked about the Rock & Roll Hall of Fame finally inducting Deep Purple he didn’t express too much faith on the way the Hall of Fame makes their decisions:

The fact that Madonna got in before Deep Purple got in? Those people can kiss my ass. Like, fuck you. Stop calling it the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame. Stop. Because it’s obvious that you don’t give a shit about rock & roll. If you did, bands like Deep Purple and Cheap Trick would’ve been in years ago. And that’s fucking upsetting. Call it the Popular Music Hall of Fame. Call it anything other than that. Because all you do is fucking piss me off.

What about Slipknot? Considering the impact they’ve had in modern mainstream metal, it wouldn’t be a surprise if they get inducted one day but if that ever happens, don’t expect to see Taylor there for the ceremony as he commented on the possibility:

No. I wouldn’t even go, dude. I don’t give a shit. All of that stuff is counterproductive. It’s like, “Oh, God. I hope they like me.” That’s why you go out on tour. That’s why you try to sell albums. I don’t give a shit about a museum. Put me in a fucking museum? Are you kidding me? We’ll put our own museum together and share it with our fans.

Lastly, he also talked smack about Justin Bieber who apparently he used to like, despite jokingly saying he was going to name his book ” “You’re Making Me Hate You (Or How Justin Bieber Sucked A Million Dicks To Make His Money),” In an interview with Nerdist. He said when asked about the liking the pop star in the past:

Yeah, until he started becoming a fucking caricature of a spoiled brat. Honestly, the only real pop music that I hear is through my kids. There was a lot of Babymetal being played in my house this year. There was a lot of 5 Seconds of Summer, who I actually got to meet not too long ago, and apparently they’re massive Slipknot fans, which I did not see coming. And they were really, really cool guys. I couldn’t name one of their songs, but I’ve heard them. I’m just so out of the loop when it comes to pop music, because it all sounds the same. It’s all the same chord progressions with the same quirky chorus, or the same hip-hop beat that took 21 people sitting in a room to come up with. It bores me.
