Slipknot News Alert: Counterfeit Tickets, The Wiggles and More!!

0

Things have been busy on the Slipknot and Corey Taylor circuit lately, as usual (the news never stops!!!), and since we at MetalSucks can never resist a shameless grab for a few [thousand] perfectly good clicks we’ve decided to round them all up in convenient digest form as has become habit around here lately. Here’s everything you need to know about Corey Taylor and Slipknot if you’ve been tuned out of the internet for the past couple of days:

 

People are Scalping Fake Slipknot Tickets for the Iowa State Fair Next Year

 

The upshot: Folks are selling fake tickets to see Slipknot at next year’s Iowa State Fair. Real tickets haven’t gone on sale yet and some of the seats being offered don’t even exist.
Clickability rating: 5/10, as we learned when the band’s live appearance was first announced people don’t care much about stuff that’s limited to Iowa, but the “counterfeit” angle helps a bit.
What kind of suckers bought these tickets? If you know, kindly email us — we’re dying to find out!
What does Corey Taylor think? Corey Taylor was unavailable for comment at the time of this post.
Counterfeit tickets are still a thing? Sure are. Joke’s on you if you got duped.

 

Finally, a Mash-Up of Slipknot and The Wiggles

 

The upshot: Someone mashed up Slipknot’s “Psychosocial” with “Fruit Salad” by the kids band The Wiggles and it’s creepy as fuck.
Clickability rating: 5/10, it’s a good mash-up but this type of content peaked years ago. Still, got some decent clicks out of it.
Just how creepy is it? Really creepy. Childrens’ stuff is always creepy.
What does Corey Taylor think? Corey Taylor was unavailable for comment at the time of this post.
What kind of TV shows does your kid watch, Vince? He’s three and he really likes Moana, Beat Bugs, Llama Llama, Charlotte’s Web and Pingu.

 

Corey Taylor Loves This Pro-Shot Footage of 2014’s “The Frayed Ends of Sanity” Live Debut

 

The upshot: Metallica released pro-shot footage of the live debut of “The Frayed Ends of Sanity,” filmed in Finland in May of 2014.
Clickability rating: 6/10, Metallica content is always perfect to add something Slipknot / Corey-related onto for the sake of clicks.
Is the footage any good? Ask Corey.
What does Corey Taylor think? “I think it’s the best pro-shot video of this song’s live debut ever filmed.”
Have you decided to buy the upcoming super-duper-extra-special-deluxe-remastered-reissue of Metallica’s …And Justice for All? LOL no why would I do that?

 

Corey Taylor is currently in the Bahamas getting his hair braided. More on that breaking story tomorrow on MetalSucks!
