Corey Taylor of Stone Sour and Slipknot gives his thoughts on 2015

Corey Taylor of Stone Sour and Slipknot has a lot of say about 2015. In a new interview with Rolling Stone, Taylor talked about everything from his favorite album of the year to politics.

Taylor’s top album of 2015 is Faith No More’s long-awaited album, “Sol Invictus.” He called the album he “never thought it was going to happen.”

“It’s such a great, dark, moving album,” is how he described “Sol Invictus.” “It was what I wanted it to be. For them to come back with that much attitude and do it their way and not give a s*** what anybody thought, it was beautiful.”

His favorite movies of 2015 were “Avengers: Age of Ultron” and “Mad Max: Fury Road.”

Switching things to dislikes, Taylor called Donald Trump’s presidential campaign the absolute worst thing he witnessed in pop culture this year.

He was also saddened by the tragic shooting in San Bernardino, California, which is the same area his band Slipknot hosts its annual music festival, Knotfest.

“For me, I would never say that it’s time to take people’s guns away, but at the same time, something has to be done,” Taylor said. “As a father and a husband, I look around and I’m like, ‘Do you people not see what’s happening?’ Anytime something happens like this, it’s like two fists crashing together. The conversation can’t even start.”
