Corey Taylor's New Book Discusses How "Batshit Crazy" America Is Right Now

Posted by on November 2, 2016 at 9:59 am

Corey Taylor, The Slipknot frontman whose name pops up more in our Facebook comments than it does on our site, will be releasing a new book called America 51: A Probe Into The Realities That Are Hiding Inside The Greatest Country In The World on July 11, 2017, via Da Capo Press. As you might've guessed from the title, it's a play on the Area 51 name, and it about "just how batshit crazy my country is right now, in good ways and in bad ways."

I'd guess that the book is delayed until July because Taylor's commentary will extent into whatever happens to America come November 8 and beyond, but that's just pure conjecture. Here's the official description of the book, according to a press release.

"The always-outspoken hard rock vocalist Corey Taylor begins 'America 51' with a reflection on what his itinerant youth and frequent worldwide travels with his multiplatinum bands Slipknot and Stone Sour have taught him about what it means to be an American in an increasingly unstable world. He examines the way America sees itself, specifically with regard to the propaganda surrounding America's origins (like a heavy-metal Howard Zinn), while also celebrating the quirks and behavior that make a true-blue American.

"Balancing humor, outrage, and disbelief, Taylor examines the rotting core of America, evaluating everything from politics and race relations to family and 'man buns.' By continuing the wave of moral outrage begun in 'You're Making Me Hate You', Taylor skewers contemporary America in his own signature style."

So, will you be reading America 51? it certainly has the potential to be interesting, though I'm sure prior to the release we'll get some excerpts.

    Cory sure loves having his ego stroked. I'm sure this book will have plenty of politically correct stuff to make him the greatest Social Justice Warrior ever! His Liberal buddies will all pat him on the back about what a great human he is. By golly, he's the least racist, homophobic, xenophobic person that ever existed….. The pretentious little prick..

      your reply to this and his book is exactly what's wrong with humanity. Everyone has an opinion and only their opinion matters. You, are also apart of the problem with your comments. Negativity will never solve anything, try something positive…oh wait, you must be a typical narrow minded American.Nevermind, enjoy your country and your warped sense of what the world is.

        You sure are delusional. I bet if you get cancer you'll be singing Kumbayah and insisting it's just a cold.
