Slipknot's Corey Taylor: "Shit sells and it sells really well"


Slipknot and Stone Sour frontman Corey Taylor unveiled an excerpt of his new book, "You're Making Me Hate You: A Cantankerous Look at the Common Misconception That Humans Have Any Common Sense Left". You can read the excerpt below.


“Now, with the way of the world and the world in the way, it’s time for a new saying: “SHIT SELLS.” That’s right – you all love your shit. From your derivative music to your shiny hollow movies, from those videos displaying your idiocy on the internet to your addiction to fake reality on TV, that saying is a fucking fact. Shit sells and it sells really well.” Corey writes.

“Yes, I worry about what the aliens will think of us. I’m no ancient astronaut theorist. I don’t think we’ve been visited by a more advanced species. I don’t think they’re plotting to come invade. I think if they’re watching, they’re doing the same thing I am: wondering why the fuck you people are mesmerised by all of this half-assed entertainment. They’re sitting in their spaceships watching our habits and they’ve come to the conclusion that we’re all apes in designer clothes. They think we’re fucking dumbasses.”
