Corey Taylor: Imagine Dragons Are New Nickelback


Corey Taylor declared this week that Canada's Nickelback is no longer the world’s most hated rock band.

“They are passing the baton to Imagine Dragons right now,” the Slipknot frontman said on the Jonesy’s Jukebox radio show, “and I love it.

“They’re awful, so that’s cool,” said Taylor, describing Imagine Dragons songs as sounding “all the same.”

Taylor said “people are slowly coming back to appreciate Nickelback and then just turning their irksome ire toward Imagine Dragons.”

(Taylor predicted you’d be reading about his comments. “Be prepared for this to turn into 20 clickbait news stories, by the way,” he said.)

In January, Slayer's Gary Holt expressed similar thoughts about Imagine Dragons, calling them the "crappiest excuse for a band" and "just awful."
