“We just want to share some of these songs that we grew up loving and we just want to pay homage to the bands that got us into music in the first place. … The next album, just to give you a little hint, has got everything from Bad Brains to Motley Crue and the third one is going to probably have Violent Femmes to Rage Against the Machine.”
In an interview with Johnnie Walker and Metalhead Ned on WGRD, Taylor said that picking the covers they take into account the bands who’ve inspired Stone Sour and they really try to have fun with it.
“It feels good to know we did these songs justice. I’m looking forward to seeing the reaction of people when we put the second one out there.”
