Slipknot‘s Corey Taylor made his ShipRocked debut this month, completing an audience Q&A in which the singer advised Machine Gun Kelly to s*every inch of. A fan spotted by Loudwire over the weekend asked Taylor about the feud inspired by the 2021 headlines and asked the CMFT artist to repeat a series of timeline statements back and forth.
After noting that he had even agreed to cooperate, which would have been at the heart of previous comments between the two, out of “respect” for Travis Barker, Taylor reflected on a widely quoted Machine Gun Kelly interview that set him on his way.
I mean, spit out of his face and I’m watching it and I’m going to go, you.
Taylor said, questioning allison hagendorf in questioning his reaction to the process of a solo-billed capacity for the cruise experience.
“You’ve been here for five minutes, basically, and you’re going to fuckin’ run your mouth about bands that have been doing this for 20 fucking years?”
From there, Taylor addressed mgk‘s on-stage comments at Riot Fest in Chicago last September, arguing that the Born With Horns singer was “not happy” with Slipknot‘s simultaneous crowd size.
According to Taylor, the MGK is the one who started the animosity back and forth between them. Towards the end of the clip, which captured the comment below, the Stone Sour co-founder returned to the MGK comments that bothered him the most.

“You don’t get to walk into a genre with the history and the work and the fact that this genre really doesn’t get the fucking respect that it deserves, you don’t get to walk in as some weird substitute teacher and pretend like you can tell us what to wear. … How about you suck every inch of my dick?”
MGK and Barker’s presumably Taylorless Born With Horns album is due out later this year. Slipknot, meanwhile, is also expected to be dropping a new album this year, marking the follow-up to 2019’s We Are Not Your Kind.
