Stone Sour, ‘Do Me a Favor’ – Best 2013 Rock Songs
After a successful run on 'House of Gold & Bones Part 1,' Corey Taylor and Stone Sour got the 'Part 2' companion off on the right foot in February with 'Do Me a Favor.' The in-your-face character study of a man's self-absorbed disregard for others definitely strikes a chord.
The Jim Root and Josh Rand guitars push the track along, while Roy Mayorga's powerful drumming give it the attitude it needs in parts. Meanwhile, Taylor delivers a brutally scathing tale about a person he calls "an anti-everything man, a scab on the lips of the lord." The passion he brings to the vocals, along with its sing-along chorus, makes this one of 2013's first breakout songs.
