Slipknot's Corey Taylor Slams The Grammy Awards (Top Story)


.
On Thursday Slipknot's Corey Taylor Slams The Grammy Awards was a top story. Here is the recap: (TeamRock Radio) Corey Taylor has taken aim at the Grammy Awards, calling the event a "popularity contest." Slipknot track Custer, Lamb Of God's 512, Ghost's Cirice, Sevendust's Thank You and August Burns Red's Identity will battle it out in the Best Metal Performance category at this year's ceremony in Los Angeles.

The band have been nominated for seven Grammys in their 20 year career, picking up the Best Metal Performance gong for track Before I Forget in 2006. Asked what winning a Grammy would mean to him this time, Taylor says it would be "cool" but stresses it's not important if they don't.

He tells Finland's Radio Rock: "I know a lot of people who put a lot of stock in it, but I keep telling them, 'We've been nominated now like, God knows how many times. We won once. Cool. It's a popularity contest - that's all it is.'

"If it weren't, if it were just about the music, you would see more metal bands - not including us - nominated in other categories - and you just don't. It's all a goddamn popularity contest, and I don't have f***ing time for that sh*t."

"It's like everybody lives and breathes by whether or not they're gonna get this tiny statue. Why? So it can sit on a shelf and collect dust?" Read more - here.
