    Chad Kroeger Calls Stone Sour "Nickelback Lite"....

    Normally, I think this stuff is pretty stupid and I'm not even a big Stone Sour fan, but this is going to be good, just because the Type A personality that Corey is.

    Chad Kroeger Calls Stone Sour 'Nickelback Lite', Challenges Corey Taylor To 'Write A Hit Song' - Blabbermouth.net
    Chad Kroeger has slammed STONE SOUR as "NICKELBACK Lite" and has challenged Corey Taylor to "write a hit song."

    The NICKELBACK frontman made his comments while being interviewed by Sweden's Metal Covenant on May 27 in Stockholm. As he was discussing NICKELBACK's musical versatility, Kroeger told the site (see video below): "I can't think of another band that's as diverse as we are. I can't. And I don't think that's me talking from pride or ego. I mean, you're sitting across the table. You know what you're talking about." He then asked the journalist to name another band that covers such a wide musical palette as NICKELBACK.

    After the writer mentioned STONE SOUR as an example of a band that is also "very diverse," Chad shot back: "Yeah, 'cause they're trying to be NICKELBACK." He then took a swig from his beer and directed his comments at the STONE SOUR singer: "Corey Taylor has said some really nasty things about me before in the press. He talks about how easy it is to write a hit song. Well, show me. Show me. Write one. I have yet to hear one. They're okay. But they're not as good as NICKELBACK. They sound like 'NICKELBACK Lite.'"

    Kroeger went on to point out that NICKELBACK and Taylor's other band, SLIPKNOT, launched their respective careers while signed to the same label (Roadrunner). He added: "They had to put on masks and jump around. How good can your music be if you've gotta beat each other up on stage, throw up in your own masks every night…? I mean, music shouldn't come with a gimmick; music should just be music. None of my favorite music comes with a gimmick. And he got tired of sitting behind a mask — he wanted people to know what he looks like — so he started STONE SOUR."
    Someone definitely sounds bitter. Taylor's got a big mouth and I've got no doubt he's said some shit about Kroeger in the past, but I think Kroeger is barking up the wrong tree with this one.

    Bitter AF.

    As much as I like the music that both of these guys have released, Kroeger needs to sit the fuck down.

    I'm torn. One the one hand, Nickelback sucks and "hurr durr if your band has a visual element it's cuz your music sucks" is a real dumb opinion.

    On the other hand, I'm not a fan of Slipknot or Stone Sour and think Corey Taylor is kind of a tool.

    On the third hand that just sprouted out of my chest,

    Taylor ran his mouth like a punk and Kroeger pointed out fact.

    "Through Glass" was a HUGE tune when it came out, same with "Bother".

    There wasn't any "fact" in anything Kroeger said, just his opinion.
