Slipknot is set to release a new album soon and in order to keep their fans excited, the group surprisingly released a new single titled “The Dying Song (Time to Sing)” and Corey Taylor recently explained the meaning of their song.
Speaking in an interview with Kerrang!, the frontman revealed that the song revolves around “outrage and no punishment” for him.
For the past few years, Taylor has said it’s “very fashionable” to be offended and outraged by the slightest thing, but there’s no resolution in the end, especially in his country (States -United).
“It’s almost like the tables have turned, and the angrier people are, the more the people they’re angry at are doubling down on the shit,” he added. (via WGRD 97.9)
He added that instead of people being punished for doing bad things, it’s gotten to a point where the public has now reacted like “fuck you, we don’t care” and it seems like they waiting for the apocalypse to happen. .
“You’re sitting there thinking, ‘Well, that was fun! That’s kind of what this song is. It’s just like, ‘If we don’t get it, I’ll see you when the meteor hits, basically,'” he added.
