Weak Recap: Solo style

Mouthful of metal

Hey, it’s another Sunday, and you know what that means, time for your favorite weekly interview. The one we do with each other.

Except, you’re not getting one.

Apparently, other people at Dose of Metal obviously have this thing called “life” and they’re too busy with their “girlfriends.” You know where that leaves me? Same place I was last week — alone in the room, wishing I had enough money to buy myself a plastic one.

I’m just kidding, blow up dolls are for pussies, real men pleasure themselves. And by that, I don’t mean I can reach my penis with my mouth. I just make the best use of my hands. Speaking of my hands and wonderful results, make the jump to read my solo recap.


Slipknot’s US tour is on. So is a new Stone Sour album.

Corey Taylor

Corey Taylor fans are gonna love this: He’s confirmed via Twitter that the Slipknot US tour is currently being booked. The reason Slipknot fans ultimately won’t be happy, is that it’s also been reported that he’s making an album — only with his other band, Stone Sour.

Let’s take a quick look at Corey’s priorities over the past year: a Stone Sour album, a solo single, a book, auditions for the spot of Velvet Revolver singer, a Slipknot tour, a side-project with Duff McKagan, solo tours, audiobook, Stone Sour covers EP, Stone Sour live DVD, his hit rendition of the SpongeBob theme song, another Stone Sour studio album. Look for Slipknot in the previous sentence, I’m sure it’s there somewhere. Ten bucks he gets kicked out of the band the moment the tour is done.


SpongeBob CoreyPants

Hipster Corey let us in on one of his next amazing and totally metal career moves — making a children’s music album, which he demonstrated by performing the theme song to SpongeBob SquarePants at a recent show. Rad. The album will also be known as Stone Sour‘s Number Four, though rumors are circulating that he might claim the Slipknot name as well, and that the children in the video are the new line-up.

Kidding aside, he performed it during a benefit show for Aaron Lewis’ “It Takes A Comunity” charity, plus if you’ve ever been forced to sit through a day with a small kid watching cartoons, you’ll know SpongeBob is pretty awesome, so it’s all cool. Except for the hat and glasses combo, and the awkward feeling of realizing this guy used to scream how he wants to slit someone’s throat and fuck the wound, and now looks like he’s one candy away from looking like a pedophile victim.

More videos, including Corey and Aaron performing Queen classic We Will Rock You, can be found here.


Weak Recap: Simo’s back!

You guys remember Simo, right? He took a two-month break from the interwebz, to see if this ‘real life’ thing is as good as people say it is. Once he realized talking to a girl in real life is not as easy as on Facebook, he came back. With a vengeance.

Okay, so maybe not with a vengeance, but he came back. And now I get to interview him, which is not an honor and a privilege.

We’ll talk about a lot of things, a lot of boring things, so I’m not gonna lie to you… It will be a pretty boring article, so don’t bother reading this further. It will only make you waste a lot of valuable time.

But if you’ve got nothing better to do, make the jump and read what two people who rarely get laid (and when they do, it ends in tears) have to say about this past week’s articles.

Enjoy! (you won’t, trust me, but I like being optimistic)


Corey Taylor hearts Justin Bieber

Okay, the title may be a bit misleading, but that’s what we do here — we mislead people.

You know that Justin Bieber / Slipknot mash-up clip? Make the jump to see it, if you don’t. It’s called ‘Psychosocial Baby’ and it’s pretty bad. And it’s not bad because it has Bieber in it, it’s bad because it has Bieber AND Slipknot in it. That’s like a double assault on your ears.

Corey loves it though. He finds it ‘beautiful’ and ‘fucking amazing,’ so that should give you a clue as to why Stone Sour sounds the way it does.

I thought it was great. I was just like, ‘This is fucking beautiful.’ And the way it was put together… I mean, it was so pulled apart and put back together. [Laughs] I was like, ‘This is awesome!’ And so many kids were pissed off about it that it makes me laugh. I’m like, ‘This is fucking amazing!’

You either get it or you don’t. And that’s that thing, there’s that line. So many people take it way too seriously. It’s just like, ‘God, wear a helmet. Figure it out.’

Full interview after the jump.

In fairness, the video is put together rather well. Clearly the person responsible for it has a lot of talent. So Corey is just praising the concept, not Bieber himself, right? Wrong:

The thing that really bothers me about so many people who talk shit about Justin Bieber — and I’m not saying I’m a fan — but the kid’s got talent. He’s got more talent than a lot of the bands that are signed out there. And you may hear the Auto-Tuning in his voice, but he doesn’t need it. He can dance, he can play, he can sing… Whatever… I don’t care. My son and my niece may love him to death, but at the end of the day, it’s like, who am I to question their taste

You tell ’em, Corey. Who do these assholes think they are, to question YOUR taste in pop music. You like Justin Bieber, that’s fine… Some people like Stone Sour, that’s fine as well. I’m more of a Britney guy myself, she used to be hot back in the day and all.

But hey, I’m being an asshole, right? Corey is just nice to this kid cause he’s 16, he wouldn’t just insult a young kid, right? Wrong:

Now, if you wanna talk about Rebecca Black. If I hear that [Friday] song again, I will probably beat the shit out of a nun, I’m telling you right now. That song’s so bad. I mean, it’s insultingly bad. And the lyrics are something out of ‘Sesame Street’… ”C’ is for cooking, back seat, front seat…’ Are you kidding me? Get the fuck out of my face with that shit!

Way to go, Corey. That 14 year old kid has to be put in her place. Don’t let her get away with her crappy lyrics. She will never be a brilliant lyricist and come up with stuff like “People = shit, whatcha’ gonna do? People = shit, cuz I’m not afraid of you.”

That would never be on Sesame Street. Interview clips and mash-up, right under the cut.
