Nickelback frontman Chad Kroeger proved that rappers aren’t the only musicians capable of sparking the juiciest beef on the music scene. Unexpectedly, he slammed former Roadrunner Records labelmates Slipknot back in 2017:“How good can your music be if you’ve gotta beat each other up onstage, throw up in your own mask every night?”
Slipknot’s singer quickly responded with many inappropriate comments saying that Kroeger has“a face like a foot”and that Nickelback“is to rock what KFC is to chicken.”
Two years after the initial beef, Slipknot singer Corey Taylor attacked the band once again. During an interview on Sex Pistols guitarist Steve Jones’ LA-based radio show, Jonesy’s Jukebox, Jones called Nickelback“the scapegoat of rock and roll,” to which immediately Taylor agreed:
“However, they are passing the baton to Imagine Dragons right now, and I love it,”he said.“They’re awful, so that’s cool. And they’re from Vegas, so I’m gonna go home to protests. Can’t show my face in this town now. Yeah, people are slowly coming back to appreciate Nickelback and then just turning their irksome ire towards Imagine Dragons.”
