Slipknot/Stone Sour front man Corey Taylor loves Christmas. “I love hanging with the family and getting everyone together, but there are just some people who just don’t want to hear from Christmas or anything about it, so they just get plowed every year. So this is me taking the piss out of them. It’s so ridiculously funny how angry these people get.”

With a punk rock feel and some hillarious, albeit angry and holiday hating, lyrics, Corey recorded “X-M@$” for the world’s enjoyment. “X-M@$” will be available for digital download on Tuesday December 14th from Roadrunner Records and all proceeds will go to The Teenage Cancer Trust.
