Corey Taylor Feels the Bern, Bashes Trump
Looks like Corey Taylor is voting for Bernie Sanders come November.
In a recent interview, Taylor was asked by U.K. news outlet The Guardian what his response to Phil Anselmo’s recent Nazi salute and racist comments were. Although he didn’t comment on Anselmo specifically, he had a lot to say about race in metal and in America. Taylor also showed support for presidential candidate Bernie Sanders, but not before taking an opportunity to bash Donald Trump:
… The fact that Donald Trump is still a viable candidate makes me want to eat my fucking shoes. There are too many candidates focused on dividing us, and not enough talking about bringing us together. And that’s one of the reasons why I support Bernie Sanders. And I will never support anyone who uses racism as a passive-aggressive way to win votes.
What a guy, right? Taylor isn’t the first metal artist to support Sanders either. Earlier in the year All Shall Perish released a sweet shirt with Bernie chasing down Trump, Hilary Clinton, Ben Carson and Jeb Bush in a tank while smoking a big ol’ joint. But the real question we’re all dying to know is whether or not we can start expecting some Bernie Sanders Slipknot song covers with this endorsement. Seriously, how great would a version of “Wait And Bleed” about people dying because they don’t have good enough health care be?
Got any other ideas for some Bernie Sanders versions of Slipknot and Stone Sour songs? Tell us in the comments.
