Corey Taylor, the lead singer for Slipknot recently told Kerrang! magazine that the record companies are at fault for the increase in illegal downloads because "most of the bands they sign are shit."
Further, he had this to say.
"People wanna blame the decline of album sales on downloading, I think it's actually the record companies' fault," he added. "I think it's the quality of the product. If record companies would stop giving any fucking mook on the street with a fringe a record deal or their own record label, maybe you would sell more fucking albums, dipshits."
Man, I freaking love Slipknot and the fact that a band this popular actually gets it makes it all the more fun to see this published on the Canadian Roadrunner Records website.
