Noose singer and solo artist Corey Taylor is just not a fan of modern young rock groups that lack identity. Taylor said in an interview with Cutter rockcast that he’s really annoyed by young bands that get their sound directly from older bands. Which somehow I totally understand, but at the same time maybe it’s just their way of finding their sound?
“I watch some of these bands that sound like this or that or like the other guy, and it’s just, like, well, they obviously listened to two albums that came out in a minute. But the ones that really got me. frustrating are those who take something that’s been around forever and then fundamentally rework it and call it new – even if it’s completely derivative.
“You know the group they are ripping off – they don’t even try to rip off a bunch of groups; they are ripping off a bunch. But the younger generation picks them up and says, ‘This is our blah blah blah,’ because ‘they are tired of old people telling them the music that came before them was better. And I don’t know who’s right, but I know both are wrong, because we should be cheering everything on. “
Taylor then admitted that he was just a cranky grandpa and added, “I hate new rock for the most part. [hate] artists who failed in a genre and decided to go rocking – and I think he knows who he is, “probably referring to Machine Gun Kelly, who started his career doing pop-rap and recently released a pop-punk type album.
“I’m just as bad. I’m the worst foggy old dude who shakes his cane ever. And I hate everything. I hate all new rock for the most part. [hate] artists who failed in a genre and decided to go rock – and I think he knows who he is. But this is another story.
“I’m the worst. And I hate everything. And people are used to that with me, though. But I’ve also encouraged the younger generation to push the boundaries of what we listen to. Do something that feels cool; may not need to sound cool, but it must be cool. If it’s dead, then people will treat it like dead, man. “
Given this information, I guess the next Noose record will probably not be too inspired by classic rock?
