Speaking with Finland's Svenska YLE, Corey Taylor spoke about the first song he ever wrote. He said: "The first song I ever wrote that I recorded was called 'Call My Name.' I was an acoustic song about my ex-girlfriend. And, yeah, it's very sappy. I was… 16? Yeah, I was 16. And if you listen to it, you can f--king tell. But you have to start somewhere."
"That's the thing. If you go with your interests, there's no wrong answer, there's no right answer; you just kind of go with what you know," Taylor continued. "So, for me, I had just taught myself how to play guitar, so it was very folklore, wonderful, weird s--t, and it was just cool. It was cool to hear something that I had written back at me. And that's kind of what got me addicted. I didn't even know if I was f---ing any good or not, but I just loved the feel of hearing something that I had written back at me and knowing that I could improve on it if I really needed to."
