Corey Taylor's early inspirations
2011-01-14 by J. Ponton EMERITUS | 57 Comments

Slipknot's Corey Taylor recently told Guardian that many of his lyrics for the first Slipknot album were written and penned while he was being surrounded by porn:

"I'm the guy that gets up at three in the morning to jot down an entire sheet of lyrics for something that won't be recorded for six months. You have to get it down when you can, because thoughts are fluid. The lyrics for the first Slipknot album were written in the bathroom, while I was working 9am till 8pm at a porn shop. I would always have my notebook and pen, and for some reason every time I'd go to the bathroom I'd start writing something great."

His lyrics can and do leave much to be desired but at least he sings them good

First sentence made me think he had a pen in one hand, penis in the left, with redtube blazing on his pc while he wrote Spit It Out.

in the same way that Chad Kroeger sucking his dick is news.

Seriously though, thought this was interesting/humorous, so I posted. I understand if Dave wants to delete it though.

He's only written one or 2 good song lyrics and they were on the 2nd Slipknot album, the self title, not the first Mate Feed Kill Repeat which was total rubbish.

The title could indicate some sort of cover album or something to that effect of Corey's earlier inspirations.




Not a story about him pooping.

Okay okay stop harrassin' Corey. We all think of something worth thinking (besides porn) while we're on the can. I think of character plots and designs while I'm on the crapper... That's right... I said crapper... Deal with it...
