  • Lead singer Corey Taylor (from Kerrang! July 19, 2008): "It wouldn't be a Slipknot album if I didn't rag on the recording industry. This time, it's all about those little emo boys with their sweet haircuts and their girlfriend's pants. People give us s--t for wearing outfits, but all of those guys look exactlythe same."
