Burger King has done it again (’it’ being create a weird ass ad campaign) for it’s new Chicken Fries (*shudder*).  Say hello to Coq Roq, the chickenheaded band that will not be sweeping the nation anytime soon. 

As an added bonus, Slipknot is now suing Burger King for pointing out via a chicken band just how retardedly stupid Slipknot really is.

    Please don’t tell me that Slipknot has sold some outrageous amount of cds and are millionaires for this stuff. I’m kinda ignorant on the status of chickenheaded heavy metal bands.

    Also, my very favorite part of the video is when the woman and the chickenheaded singer are in the hallway looking at each other with lust, and she pulls him to her – with a straight face! I hope the actors were paid well for that oscar winning performance.

    You really have to question yourself and your band when you’re watching tv, see a commercial with a bunch of people in chicken costumes with guitars, and shout, “Shit!  That’s US!!”

    Slipknot tried to sue the gay porn industry a year back, saying that “our band sucks dong and bung with extreme enthusiasm and vigor, similar to the men and he-shes that star in such videos as ‘Fist Hankerin’ vol. 7’, ‘Anal Menace’, and ‘Chitty Chitty Gang Bang’.  Don’t see this lawsuit being any more successful.

    I was surprised to find out that Slip Knot had lawyers at all.  Kind of tarnishes that anti-establishment image that metal bands love to cultivate.

    What I love is that they all have stylists.

    Funny, considering how blatently Slipknot ripped off Mr. Bungle’s look, who were around a decade before slipknot.  Mr. Bungle was the first band to wear disguises, especially bizarre ones.  But unlike Slipknot, Mr. Bungle is an original and talented band.  If they win the case, the Mr. Bungle band members should definately be able to sue Slipknot.  Fukkckckckckckckcing idiots.

    In fact the mask of the lead singer in Mr. Bungle and the lead singer of Slipknot is almost exactly the same.  They both have the leather bondage thing going on with a zipper at the mouth.  COME ON.

    The idea of Mike Patton in court may just be the most unintentionally hilarious thing ever. 

    I bet for his rebuttal he’d just start playing “Themes for Adult Voice”.

    Its like Apple suing Microsoft for copying the windowing system that Apple copied from Xerox.

    My fucking god… Coq Roq even sounds better than Slipknot, haha. Corey Taylor, Fuck you – and your fucking teeny-bopping, teen-age-girl cult followers.

    Somebody sure sounds mad.

  • BADD

    Slipknots still a band?

    Amazing.

    Don’t get used to it. I’m sure within a few years, all the member of Slipknot be actually WORKING at a Burger King. Coq Roq will have made it to night shift manager by that time.

    What delicious irony.

    Say what you want about Burger King, they do make some delicious irony.  It’s the flame broil (paint).

    Did you family get killed by a Faith No More cd or something?  Chill….the…..fuck….out.

    Oh, and Mr. Bungle formed in 1985 while Slipknot formed in 1995 (according to their official bio)

  • MPatton

    Ouch !

  • QuoteUnquote

    How can a band be formed in 95 when there first album was commercially release in 91 ? This brings us to this philosophical question first ask by a chicken… did the album came before the band or the band before the album….

  • Slipping

    YEAH TOTALLY WITH YOU MAN !!! WHEN WILL PEOPLE UNDERSTAND THAT ART IS ABOUT WHAT REALLY MATTERS !!! I MEAN FUCK EVERYTHING THAT YOU STAND FOR OR WHAT !!!

  • http://www.dadsbigplan.com .alphamonkey.

    HAI GUYS! WHAT R U TALKING ABOUT?

  • Longbear

    who cares….? the issue here is this: Slipknot does not have some sort of copyright on wearing grungy masks. Personally, I think COQ ROQ looks better than Slipknot. I mean, come on, how much more can you scream “look at me! I’m deviating from society!” without actually screaming it? COQ ROQ is stylized, musically talented, and fun. I like Slipknot’s music, but this kind of greedy ridiculousness just makes me angry. COQ ROQ is gone, BTW. their website is gone, and the free downloads of their songs from myspace is as well.
