Completely Unreadable Band Logo of the Week: Win a Copy of Corey Taylor’s America 51!
WOW. You guys really let me down. For the second week in a row, none of you were able to correctly identify this logo. This is, if memory serves, only the third time this has happened in MS history. As was the case with the other two instances, I’m gonna move onto a new logo this week, and I’ll give you another crack at the most recent one sometime in the future.
Hopefully, y’all do much better this week, because I have really cool prize to give away: three copies of the new book from Slipknot/Stone Sour frontman Corey Taylor, America 51: A Probe into the Realities That Are Hiding Inside “The Greatest Country in the World”! What is the book about, you ask? Well…
“The always-outspoken hard rock vocalist Corey Taylor begins America 51 with a reflection on what his itinerant youth and frequent worldwide travels with his multiplatinum bands Slipknot and Stone Sour have taught him about what it means to be an American in an increasingly unstable world. He examines the way America sees itself, specifically with regard to the propaganda surrounding America’s origins (like a heavy-metal Howard Zinn), while also celebrating the quirks and behavior that make a true-blue American. Taylor likewise takes a look at how the world views us, and his findings should come as a surprise to no one. But behind Taylor’s ranting and raving is a thoughtful and intelligent consideration, and even a sadness, of what America is compared to what it could and should be.
“Expertly balancing humor, outrage, and disbelief, Taylor examines the rotting core of America, evaluating everything from politics and race relations to modern family dynamics, millennials, and ‘man buns.’ No element of what constitutes America is safe from his adept and scathing eye. Continuing the wave of moral outrage begun in You’re Making Me Hate You, Taylor flawlessly skewers contemporary America in his own signature style.”
Well, that certainly sounds like a must-read for Taylor fans, doesn’t it? It comes out August 8 on Da Capo Press, and can be pre-ordered here… or, of course, you can enter this contest and hope that you win!
To win, simply identify the name of the band whose logo appears below, then fill out the form beneath it with your guess and your name and address. From everyone who gets it right, we’ll randomly select three winners and announce their names next week.
Here’s this week’s logo. Best of luck!
