A few days ago, Nickelback frontman Chad Kroeger criticised Slipknot and Stone Sour vocalist Corey Taylor in an interview.

He claimed that Stone Sour were just "trying to be Nickelback", and that Corey was yet to write a hit song. Oh, and that Slipknot became successful because of a gimmick.

"How good can your music be if you’ve got to beat each other up on stage, throw up in your own masks every night?" he said.

You can watch the interview here:

Well, Corey has hit back with some choice comments of his own.

"I was sitting there trying to figure out how I was going to handle this, because it's so funny," he said, speaking to 98 KUPD.

"I don't know what the hell planet he's living on. Apparently it's planet Kroeger, and there must be good weed there 'cos he's an idiot."

"I love all the dudes in that band. I love Mike [Kroeger, Nickelback bassist]. Everybody else in that band I'm very, very cool with, I’ve hung out with them. It’s just ‘Face Like a Foot’ who I can’t really hang out with."

"He’s got a face like a foot. Am I wrong? Dude, curl up in bed with your Hello Kitty pillow and shut up."

"I was so cued up to say some stuff about him, and then I just started reading all the comments online. I don’t have to say a damn thing."

"He's not a liked person. You can run your mouth all you want. All I know is I've been voted 'Sexiest Dude in Rock' wearing a mask. You've been voted 'Ugliest Dude in Rock' twice without one. Stick that up your ass."

Here's the full interview:

Stone Sour's new album 'Hydrograd' is out June 30 via Roadrunner.

Nickelback's latest record 'Feed The Machine' is out now.
