Slipknot frontman Corey Taylor has slammed major labels, as opposed to fans, for the popularity of file sharing on the Internet.
In an article in Kerrang! magazine Taylor said, "Why would you blame (people who download music)? Half the fucking albums that are out there are shit. I don’t download, but at the same time, I don’t buy new music ’cause it all sucks. Okay, there’s a handful of bands that I buy, but other than that, I just buy old shitt because old shit is good."
"I think it’s the quality of the product. If record companies would stop giving any fucking mook (idiot) on the street with a fringe a record deal or their own record label, maybe you would sell more fucking albums, dipshits."
