Corey Taylor Sings Radiohead’s ‘Creep’ at Ozzfest Japan
What does Corey Taylor think of Radiohead? The video above has the answer! The Slipknot frontman joined Silence iz Mine, known as SiM, onstage at Ozzfest Japan to sing the song "Creep." Taylor's low, quivering voice is a perfect fit for the cover performed by the dynamic Japanese native act.
Trading off lines with singer Mah, the two lose themselves onstage, feeling the nervous energy of the fittingly titled Radiohead classic. Towards the end the two come together and sing together as the song builds the tension. The crowd responds with a roar after having seen one of their homegrown acts perform with a modern metal legend on one of the most iconic songs to emerge from the '90s.
Taylor was performing at Ozzfest Japan as a solo acoustic act, utilizing the softer croon heard in the video. Other acts featured at the festival installment included Ozzy Osbourne and Friends, Korn, Evanescence, Bullet for My Valentine, Jane's Addiction, Hatebreed, Black Label Society, A Day to Remember, BabyMetal and more.
No stranger to performing cover songs, Taylor has been featured on the tribute Ronnie James Dio - This is Your Life belting out "Rainbow in the Dark." He also sang Iron Maiden's "Running Free" and more on Stone Sour's upcoming Straght Outta Burbank covers EP out on Record Store Day, Nov. 27.
Ozzfest Japan was initially slated to be headlined by Black Sabbath, but that plan was abandoned. The band instead announced a full-scale worldwide farewell 2016 tour, which still has yet to reveal the band's last performance.
