Reporting from the front lines… Chad Kroeger, leader of Nickelback, made an unexpected first strike on Corey Taylor’s two band-strong battalion last night. Stone Sour inflicted the most damage, shell-shocked from Kroeger’s “Nickelback Lite” description of their band. A verbal bombardment also rained down on Slipknot as Kroeger deemed their music as a “gimmick.” Now, though, Taylor has responded. Rather than a full-blown counter-attack, however, he’s opted for a more subtle, restrained, but equally damaging retort: a retweet.

Hoping to diffuse any further conflict, Smash Mouth tried to play arbitrator.

Though, they’ve since become engaged in their own conflict with Jeff.

A truly dark period in world history.
