No, we’re not kidding. In what is a late contender for the most unlikely collaboration of the year, Slipknot and Stone Sour frontman Corey Taylor wants to record a song with Canadian pop superstar and teen icon Justin Bieber.
But before you start wondering how on earth the two could write a song together, the hard work has already been done. NME reports that Taylor’s idea to collaborate with Beiber has come off the back of a viral YouTube mash-up, which saw one fan put Slipknot’s Psychosocial together with Justin Bieber’s hit single Baby.
Since being uploaded last year, the Psychosocial Baby video has had over 12 million hits.
Taylor told Revolver that the mash-up was “so cool”, and that he tried desperately to lure Bieber for an acoustic version of the track recently.
“I know Justin wasn’t responsible for it, but I just thought it was so cool. Everybody thought I’d be pissed about it, but I was blown away… I give him respect. He’s a very talented kid and he goes above and beyond for his fans."
