Corey Taylor, the lead singer and lyricist of the legendary band Slipknot, made an interview and talked about his latest single release Culture Head and the song’s main subject, cancel culture.
Cancel culture is now a trending problem, it basically means to cancel out a person or community from social media platforms. Cancel culture, also known as online shaming, does not really need a piece of evidence, it works like everything online, instantly.
Taylor, in the interview, talked about cancel culture and he stated that he does not see a way of things getting better since online shaming grows rapidly and makes the situation worse day by day.
Here is what he said about the subject:
“It’s just so rampant and so ferocious and I don’t, for the first time in my life, see a way out, I don’t see a way of things getting better. And I really wish I could. I try not to let it get me down, but how can you not?
In a way, you’re making the problem worse. That’s where this ‘progressive generation’ don’t fucking understand because it’s more complicated than something they can read on a phone.”
Later on, Taylor was asked if he’s ever received cancel culture.
“Well, there’s a great antithesis to it all, which is just to go, ‘Fuck you.’ You don’t get to cancel me. Do you think you and your hordes can cancel me? Fuck off.
You know, it’s the egotism of a horde that thinks that they can just absolutely cancel someone and destroy their livelihood. It’s a case of the medicine not fitting the illness.”
The song Culture Head has lyrics like, ‘Now I don’t want to blame anyone, but now and then you just love abuse. You don’t have to blame anyone… so fuck you and you and you and you and you,’ it is another typically outspoken track from the Slipknot frontman Corey.
