To say that Corey Taylor is an “outspoken” individual is a bit of an understatement. I mean that with all do respect, though! I have total admiration for somebody that speaks his/her mind without giving a sh- Well, see. That’s the problem. You just can’t say those words on the radio.
So you think Corey Taylor is up for the challenge?
Apparently he’s wanted a radio show for a long time. Although his day job of being in Slipknot and Stone Sour and being a badass doesn’t leave a lot of room for it, until now. Corey Taylor just took a shot at his first radio show, appropriately titled “A Series of Bleeps.”
She show launched Wednesday on Apple Music, and in between trying to maintain his self-censorship, he played a miscellany of different tracks: everything from Metallica to Nirvana, to Björk to the Bee Gees.
He told Rolling Stone:
“I suggested the title. I was in a meeting with [Beats curator and host] Zane Lowe and some other people, and I said, ‘You realize this is just a series of bleeps for me?’ And we all looked each other and said, ‘That’s the title.’ Because, let’s be honest, if I need to censor myself, I will. But if I’m running off at the mouth, I tend to say whatever the fuck comes out of it. For me, it’s perfect.”
“I love old-school rap, like N.W.A, Ice Cube, Ice-T, Dre, Eminem, Public Enemy, Beastie Boys, KRS-One. The hip-hop that I grew up listening to was very poignant. It had something to say and it wasn’t afraid to say it. It was the punk rock of soul and R&B music, a statement. Now, 20, 30 years later, it’s really just become a Courvoisier commercial, where the dude singing tries to get laid. And that’s fine and all. Every party needs a certain type of flavor, but it doesn’t seem like the same attitude anymore, other than with Dre and Eminem.”
