Machine Gun Kelly, who closed Chicago’s Riot Fest on Sunday, September 19, called out the iconic metal band Slipknot at the same time when they were closing out the same music festival from a different stage. The ‘Bloody Valentine’ hitmaker apparently asked to turn the lights on adding, “Let me see who chose to be here instead of with all the old, weird dudes with masks.”

Chicago Sun Times reported that the 31-year-old rapper turned punk-rocker while addressing the audience threw a shade at the band saying, “Hey, you all know what I’m really happy that I’m not doing? Being 50 years old, wearing a f**in’ weird mask on a f**in’ stage.” Following the call out, Machine Gun Kelly, on Monday, September 20, took to Twitter to again take a dig at the band which finally provoked Slipknot’s lead vocalist Corey Taylor to hit back at the musician. Kelly attacking the metal squad, of course, did not go down well the band’s loyal fans who have been following their music since their formation in 1995. They brutally dragged Machine Gun Kelly on the Internet claiming that Eminem ended his rap career and Slipknot will end his rock career.

Why did Machine Gun Kelly diss Slipknot?

The controversy apparently goes back to when MGK wanted to collaborate with the band on his now award-winning album ‘Tickets to My Downfall’. It is believed that Kelly’s onstage diss came after Taylor in one of his recent interviews said, “I hate all new rock for the most part. I [hate] the artists who failed in one genre and decided to go rock and I think he knows who he is.” After the onstage mocking, MGK took to Twitter saying, “Very odd that when an artist talks s**t, and i respond, i’m the bad guy.”  

He posted another tweet that revealed the reason behind the entire mess. “Corey did a verse for a song on tickets to my downfall album, it was f**king terrible, so i didn’t use it. he got mad about it, and talked s**t to a magazine about the same album he was almost on. yalls stories are all off.  just admit he’s bitter.” He concluded his series of tweets with, “Don’t hate on the youth.”








Slipknot frontman provides Machine Gun Kelly 'receipts'

After staying mum for long, Slipknot frontman Corey Taylor finally decided to hit back at MGK and that too with substantial evidence. Taylor shared two screenshots of the mail sent to him by Kelly’s close pal and collaborator Travis Barker.  While sharing his side of story, he captioned the post as, “I don’t like people airing private s**t like a child. So this is all I’ll say: I didn’t do the track because I don’t like when people try to ‘write’ for me.” I said NO to THEM. So without further ado…. #receipts. This is all I’m going to say about it.” Now, in of the screenshots, we could see Travis Barker informing Taylor how stoked Kelly was to work with the band.  However, Machine Gun Kelly had also suggested a few changes which it seems did not go down well with Taylor. Kelly had written to Barker, “Can you tell him and I am stoked and HONORED he is even on it wtf.”  Another pointer read, “I sent Corey an idea for the second half of his verse and he can obviously say f**k it but it would be sick to see if it inspired anything or if he could try it like that.”

Kelly and Taylor were supposed to join hands on the track ‘Can’t look Back.’ Sharing another screenshot, the Slipknot’s vocalist revealed how he later told Barker that he was not the right fit for the song. “Nothing personal, I just think if this is what MGK is looking for, someone else is the guy to do it. It’s ALL good, and I’m stoked for him- I hope you guys find the right fit for it. Hope you understand and I wish you guys the best with it.” This apparently further triggered Kelly as he replied to Taylor’s post, “Basically, your verse was really bad. respectfully, i was just telling you to rewrite it because it was really bad. respectfully. but let’s do a britney spears song cover together” followed by an emoticon of devil horns. Machine Gun Kelly later also took to his Instagram stories asking what was the problem of the older generation apparently pointing at Slipknot. He captioned the story as, “The older generation and weird stans gotta stop.”







‘Eminem ended dude's rap career now Slipknot about to end his rock career’

Slipknot’s loyal fans did not hesitate at all to drag Kelly on Twitter. One user said, “So your telling me Corey Taylor rejected a collab with MGK and MGK gets upset because of it and starts chatting shit about slipknot like a child. This is way too funny.” Another posted, “How the f**k is MGK going to call out Corey Taylor/Slipknot? The man switched to pop punk after Eminem ripped his a**, and even then he needs Travis Barker to make B side Blink-182 songs.”
The next one added, “MGK talking s**t on slipknot only makes me happier that i never listened to his shit music.” Whereas, one tweeted, “Eminem ended dude's rap career now Slipknot about to end his rock career. MGK gonna be singing country songs next.” One person added, “MGK shading slipknot? id rather be a 50 year old in a funny mask than a creep. "halloween" masks are better than predatory statements any day, plus SOMEONE makes the better, more influential music here.” While, another concluded, “This coming from the guy that got roasted so bad by Eminem, he switched to rock. Guess we can expect MGK's country album out soon after Slipknot destroys him too?”
