Corey Taylor: Stone Sour’s ‘Fabuless’ Is About ‘People Who Are Famous for Nothing’

A little over a month ago, Stone Sour dropped two new songs off their upcoming album Hydrograd on the same day, the heavy track “Fabuless” and the radio-friendly single “Song #3.” We recently caught up with frontman Corey Taylor at Rock on the Range, and he explained the meaning behind both songs.

Taylor told Loudwire Nights host Toni Gonzalez that “Fabuless” is a “love letter” to the social media celebrities who are “about as heavy as a Tupperware bowl.” He adds, “There are these people who are famous for nothing. I thought it wouldn’t get any worse than reality television people, and then the social media celebrities came … There were whole Vine tours at one point and thousands of screaming girls, and I’m going, ‘What the hell is this?'”

As for “Song #3,” Taylor reveals that the tune is “about a certain kind of love that I don’t think songwriters really talk about. It’s that strong passionate love but also that undying love. That really, really good s–t, you know?”

We also asked Taylor why “Song #3″ is track No. 5 on Hydrograd. Check out his answer, along with more details on the meanings of both songs, in the video interview above.

Stone Sour’s Hydrograd album comes out June 30, with pre-orders available at iTunes. The band will be heading out on tour with Korn beginning June 16 in Salt Lake City, Utah. See the dates here.
