10 Metal Bands Who Became Memes
This is the one time it's okay to ask, "But what does Corey Taylor think?" A good meme is everything in life and so is heavy metal, which is why, in this Loud List, we've put together 10 Metal Bands Who Became Memes so you can LOL IRL.
In this video, you'll find out just what Corey Taylor thinks about pop, Kanye West and some other things. The Slipknot and Stone Sour singer is fearlessly opinionated, which helped him garner the nickname "The great Big Mouth."
Who could forget that the biggest joke about Metallica and Lou Reed's collaborate album Lulu surprisingly wasn't the album itself, but the lyrics where James Hetfield curiously shouted "I am the table," repeatedly. It was instantly memed and for a moment, Papa Het's Wikipedia page officially recognized him as a table. Imagine if the Beatles wrote "I Am the Walrus" in the Internet age...
Moving on... all bow before THE NECK. Since we've already talked about Corey Taylor, this can only mean this meme belongs to Cannibal Corpse's George "Corpsegrinder" Fisher. The dude is the king of windmill headbanging and he's got the biggest neck in the biz from decades of whipping his head around onstage. Chris Jericho even calls him "The Thumb" because, well, look at your thumb... now look at Corpsegrinder. Can you even tell the two apart?
