Slipknot singer Corey Taylor, recently had an argument with the fans who claimed that Slipknot is some kind of ‘nu-metal’ band.

A fan named Horror said:

Trap Metal” – Eh, Not Sure how i feel about that title, kinda cringhy but i get it, kinda. But we gonna keep it grimey, punk, scummy & vile.”

Corey responded:

“Beware of labels, my friends. People still call us ‘nu metal’. Just ignore that shit and do what you do. You’re as punk and grimey as they GET!!!”

A fan named Joel Benavente tweeted:

“Yeah, you do have a DJ, so kinda makes you nu metal. Did you forget about SiD WiLSoN? Number zero your band mate?!?”

Taylor responded:

“That’s your only reason we’re nu metal? So… Portishead is nu metal? Sugar Ray is nu metal? Grow a fucking clue– I’m not in the mood today. Also: A LOT OF NU METAL BANDS HAVE NO DJ.”

Joel tweeted again:

“Portishead is trip hop and one of the founders of that genre. And Sugar Ray is a rock band but they don’t play metal music. They would technically just be pop music that happens to be a rock band like imagine dragons. You guys play metal but not traditional. Hint nu metal.”

Corey responded:

“I think you’re a person more concerned with genres than music. You do you- I’ll be over here being right.”
