Coq Roq = Slipknot?

Slipknot’s Burger King Beef: Slipknot is threatening legal action against Burger King, charging that Coq Roq was created as a “look-alike, sound alike ‘band’ in order to influence the Slipknot generation to purchase Chicken Fries.”

  1. You’re goddamn kidding me, right? Slipknot fans are confusing BK’s Coq Roq for their own? Well shit, I thought that was Gwar endorsing the burgers. Or was it ICP? Or maybe it was Kid Rock. It rhymes with Coq Roq, and it’s shitty music performed occasionally on a stage. Shit, I almost mistook them for Gwen Stefani. What a tragic kingdom we live in! You know, I was thinking the one kingdom under chicken fries was the one in that No Doubt song. Come to think of it, they were ripping off Hootie and the Blowfish and Garth Brooks all at once in their last commercial run! What with Darius doing country music. You know they were trying to get the Hank Williams Jr. AND the 50 cent crowd into their grimy restaurant with Tendercrisp Bacon Cheddar Ranch. Plus they were totally ripping off the whole city of Cheddar, England, trying to fool those wacky brits that Burger King is a legitimate monarch! Holy conspiracy theory!

  2. Slipknot sucks, they can get over it, Coq Roq=Teh pwn. Slipknot just wants publicity because fans realize they SUCK. Come on, it takes 8 members to sound decent…they suck.

  3. her dirzain and stage freight. f*ck you. slipknot is kick ass. and yes, coq roq is a piece of sh*t look alike of slipknot, and yes, slipknot has 9 members, but they sound better than most other bands with less. the more the marrier mother f*cker. i think slipknot has all the right in the world to press charges. coq rock is gay as f*ck.

  4. You make an interesting point, 555. You say, “coq roq is a piece of sh*t look alike of slipknot” and “coq rock is gay as f*ck.” Therefore, according your logic, Slipknot must at least look “gay as f*ck.”

  5. I completely agree with 555 and dirzain ur a fucking worthless fag what your mama wont let you listen to anything that envolves the sound of a distortioned guitar or r u just sum kind of rap shithead gangsta wannabe u fucking pindick muther fucker. slipknot have every right to sue coq roq them and burger king obviously cant think of any look that would apeal to the public without copying 1 of the greatest metal bands in the history of music.

  6. Do you Slipnot fans think that Coq Roq is a real band? It’s just a commercial, dipshits. Coq Roq was made up by ad agency [url=http://www.cpbgroup.com/]Crispin Porter + Bogusky[/url] to get ironic hipsters to think Burger King is clever and funny.

    PS – Calling someone a fag is not an insult. I know for a fact that Corey Taylor likes to “cuddle” with young Asian boys.

  7. Well said Wayne. It’s unfortunate that the Slipknot fans have to result to slinging juvinile insults in order to feel better about themselves. Honestly children, get off your f’ing dirtbikes and read a book.

  8. Any of you morons that writes that SlipKnot sucks ever actually sit down and listen to their music? Do you even get into Heavy Metal at all? Corey has a voice that can sound like anything he wants it to. Ever listen to Death Metal at all? Do you understand the concept? YES, he can sing very well. Look up Sour Stone… Joey is concidered one of the best drummers in the world. If you ever listened you would notice their music is very well thought out and very complex as well. They may wear masks but are far from a gimmick band. Also…if you ever met them, you would realize they have been through hell to get to where they are, and are very down to earth awesome guys! IF YOU ARE NOT IN THE 9, YOU WILL NEVER UNDERSTAND!!! BTW, I think the coqs are ripping off aspects of SlipKnot as well and they suck too much to even be concidered metal at all. They are not even a real band…much like Burger King’s food.

  9. Slipknot isn’t metal. It’s hard rock, at best. Nobody ever would have heard of Slipknot without their mask gimmick, whether they write good music or not (they don’t, but that’s not the point).

  10. SLiPKNoTFaN, you made me laugh. Slipknot is not death metal, and if you ever think of that again someone should shoot you in the face. Slipknot is alternative, NOT metal. Nothing more. Go listen to Dismember, Origin, and Sceptic Flesh, those are death metal.

    There music is formulatic, with lyrics that are meant to appeal to the greater mass. They have members in their band that don’t do anything productive rather then walk around on stage. Obviously, I dislike their music.

    Slipknot sueing Coq Roq is stupid as hell. Coq Roq is not saying they are metal, and is infact, a fake band created by Burger King.

  11. Are you guys fucking retarded, saying that slipnot sucks and slipknot isnt a heavy metal band. i think everyone who said that should kill themselves. slipknot kicks fucking ass. they r the best metal band out there and coq roq completly copied there masks. slipknot has everyrite to sue those sad fuckers.

  13. Ok, seriously, this is a complete waste of time. I am a big Slipknot fan and I see barely any resemblance in the two bands. So what, a lot of bands wear masks. Slipknot is way better than “Coq Roq”. They suck so much, I’m surprised BK is even using the band. And if BK is trying to get a lookalike band for Slipknot, than crap man, why didn’t they just get pure talent and ask Slipknot to do it themselves. No link between the bands, waste of time, drop the case, you’re better than this Slipknot and you will always rock, no matter what. BK is just trying to rustle some feathers. Besides, their ads make me sick and I don’t even like BK food to begin with. Slipknot is wasting time and BK is giving themselves an even worse than before name. Slipknot might as well go make an another album than pay any attention to this crap.

  14. Well said, Shel. Maybe now we can move on to more pressing issues: like the completely revolting idea of “Chicken Fries.” Fuck, people, no wonder so many americans are overweight. Eat a frickin’ salad!

    Oh, and Slipknot blows.

  15. Wayne Curr! YOUR WRONG, idiot. Coq Roq is an actual BAND. Visit the site and READ.. “fowl Mouth” as he calls himself wanted to lead a metal band and no one liked them.. Then……they saw Burger King. Only one side problem….everythings gotta be based on chicken!! Even their masks!!! About the whole mask coping thing, forget it..no one knows if they chose those masks or BK made them..Their music is ok, but Slipknot is much better. even though i kinda like Coq Roq, Slipknot has every right to sue…just, no one knows about the masks……. So, instead of ONLY seeing the commercial and emediatly saying their fake, look them up before jumping to conclusions. I hope this settles every ones problems! Ps: SLIPKNOT ROCKS! m/[0.o]m/

  16. Anthony! YOUR RIGHT, smartypants. If you READ it on the internet, it must be TRUE..I’m sorry I emediatly said their fake after ONLY seeing the commercial.. This settles ALL my problems! Ps: ANTHONY ROCKS! ~^$#%(+)&@?^~

  17. [url] http://www.coqroq.com [/url] will answer any questions on that.

    The masks did give me the impression of Slipknot, but it’s a free world and I think that too often people win lawsuits that should never have happened.

    McD’s hot coffee. Seriously!

    They are not death metal, but scrach metal. Slipknot is better than Korn who realy sucks.

    I badly want one of those masks for halloween. It would look wicked awesome.

  18. I didn’t mean to imply that Slipknot is death metal, they are not death metal. However, they do borrow guitar riffs, some drumming, and growls from death metal and throat singing from hardcore. They are however heavy metal and I feel that they have nothing in common with hard rock. Do they actually sound like Van Hallen to you?? They also resent being concidered nu-metal, however that just might be a close enough classification. Also…BK did ask them. A quote from an online artical:

    Weitzman believes the similarities that the two bands share are no coincidence. In September 2004, BK’s parent company contacted the band’s label asking if the boys would contribute their “loud voice” to an “advertising campaign designed to motivate young people to vote.” Weitzman added that some of Slipknot’s fans have already mistaken the fictional freakshow for the real deal.

    Now back to the band itself…all the members contribute to the sound of the band. It’s not true that some members just walk around stage. At some points during a song, yeah sure. But they all play a part in the sound. Especially the percussionists. Joey is great, but he only has 2 arms and 2 legs. I bet all you death metal fans hate Slipknot cause of the turntable and sampling sounds. You know what, I have listened to death metal and other types of metal since I was 12. My tastes have roughly taken this road through the years (in order): AC/DC, Black Sabbath/Ozzy, Metallica, Anthrax, Slayer, Suicidal Tendencies, Canibal Corps, Sepultura, Fear Factory, Amorphis, Pig Destroyer, Lamb of God, Slipknot. I actually hated Slipknot when I 1st heard them. I even listened to a bunch of songs and hated them still. Then I went through a time period where I started liking Mudvayne and Slipknot, and still do. I guess my tastes have changed in metal. Death Metal got boring….Same shit all the time. I started to like Slipknot after I seen them in concert. I finally understood them.

  19. IF anything, its GWAR that should sue. Slipknot stole their look and sound before Burger King stole GWAR’s look and sound! Its hard for slipknot to sue when they stole from GWAR in the first place!

  20. Slipknot should not be sueing. Them sueing ‘Coq Roq’ for stealing their ‘image’ is basically saying that Slipknot created the whole mask thing. GWAR was doing the mask thing before Slipknot and you don’t see them freaking out about Slipknot “stealing their image.” ‘Coq Roq’ is, in nearly no way related to Slipknot. Their masks resemble nothing of the Slipknot masks. They’re chicken- related for God’s sake. You don’t see the Slipknot members wearing a big beak on their heads. Not even their music resembles Slipknot. Slipknot is some form of metal, while ‘Coq Roq’ is nu-metal. There’s no growling or anything in ‘Coq Roq.’The vocals are clean. Slipknot is just freaking out because they probably believe that they are the true metal masters and will be damned if anyone tries to copy them, which Coq Roq has not. Slipknot isn’t even all that good. Hey Joey, ever met Dave Lombardo?

  21. ok by the way Dirzain, theres 9 people in slipknot. and there fans would not be there fans if they thought they sucked. slipknot is badass and im stickin with them.

  22. They arent saying they started the mask thing, they are saying the masks Coq Roq wear bare a striking resemblance to the masks SlipKnoT wear.

    This is obvious.

    Also, it is not necessarily that fans are confusing the two as they are noticing that the masks are very VERY similar in appearance.

  23. this is the most hilarious thread i have seen for weeks. keep on rocking anthony, glad you kept enough of an open mind to enjoy some Coq.

  24. Slipknot is suing because if you do not actively pursue any implied copyright infringement, that copyright is considered forfeit. They aren’t doing it because they’re stupid, or egotistical, or because they think they’re the true metal masters; they’re doing it because if they do not, they cannot use masks as their trademarked look.

    Just as if someone made a miniature ice cream parlor and named it “Micro-Soft Serve Ice Cream”, Microsoft would sue them for infringement, not because they truly think someone might confuse the tiny ice cream with their software products, but because if they don’t, then they lose the trademark to the name “Microsoft”.

    In any case, it’s merely a formality, as Coq Roq is protected under the Fair Use law for satire: the resemblance between Coq Roq and Slipknot is striking, but it as meant as a satire– namely a bunch of crazed fans going wild over what amounts to a bunch of guys in chicken suits.

  25. i actually think that coq roq is better than slipknot. coq roq has much more memorable songs and the singer is much better. and the funny thing is it’s an ADVERTISEMENT and it’s better than slipknot.

    BOB YOUR HEAD! CHICKEN FRIES ARE WHAT I NEED!!!

    besides, what’s the f-ing difference between singing about chicken fries and the stupid shit slipknot sings about?? at least Coq Roq has no pretension about how meaningless they are. will chicken fries change the world? No. neither will fucking slipknot. fuck off.

  26. Ok , you all may have an opinion of the situation , Flatlines makes the most sense. But as a Slipnot fan myself (and a fan of Coq Roq) I find the whole affair , well childish. And I refuse to belive that Slipnot would lower themselfs to a corperate level , I mean Microsofts one thing..but Slipnot? And as a side note, Coq Roq never said they were ‘Heavy Metal

    p.s honestly I tend to favor Coq Roq more

  28. you are all wrong coq roq is not coppying Slipknot (the best band ever) they are in fact coppying Lil Jon just check out the dreds “Get Crunk”

  29. The only reason Slipknot is sueing is because they are probably jealous that Coq Roq rocks TEN TIMES HARDER then they do! Coq Roq has more creativity in one of their fingers then Slipknot has in all its one billion members of the group. I hope to see Coq Roq when they play the Warped Tour.

  30. Coq Roqer is a complete idiot. Slipknot is way more talented then Coq Roq. Plus Slipknot is not a bunch of coroporate puppets like Coq Roq. All they sing about is chicken. Slipknot’s lyrics are more deeper then food!

  31. Slipknot should sue Coq Roq. The first time I saw the commercial I thought it was Slipknot because of the masks. It is so obvious that they are trying to trick all the Slipknot fans. Slipknot is REAL metal.

  32. This thread is great! Total morons arguing over a ficticious group used in an ad campaign, and the similarity to the beyond lame Slipknot. I’m going to go watch Spinal Tap now, I recommend some people do the same.

  33. oh my god, i have to see this fucking commercial. not that i’m living under a rock with the media, but i really don’t waste all my time watching a false band on a tv commercial several times over, and then going onto a message board to talk about how irrelevent slipknot is to this so-called coq-roq

  34. Why are people not interested in this subject commenting in this forum? How did you people even get here?

    Slipknot Rules…ACTUALLY LISTEN for a change…

  35. slipknot emo, that shit is funny as hell. you know i do beilive at the last Slipknot show i did see corrys little gay hair flip covering his left eye

  36. …Slipknot’s not metal… They’re nu-metal, they even say so themselves. You guys are morons, and resort to cussing every half second, I’d like to see you all in real life so I could point and laugh as I see you’re the kid who has no friends. Have fun with your wasted life and remember, your father’s condom broke…I’m sorry.

  37. coq roq isnt trying to be metal.

    they’re just some dumbasses that right songs about chicken cause burger king said so. they dress chickens cause its for chicken fries. alot of bands use a mask gimmick. no one band really owns that gimmick. and if one band does its not slipknot. maybe GWAR. or kiss

  38. The issue is not “which bands sucks the most”, the issue being

    “are Coq Roq ripping off slipknot?” first we must ask, was Kiss ripping off Alice Cooper? was Gwar ripping off kiss? Was Slipknot ripping off Gwar, so forth and so on. and point two, for you slipknot fans “who actually listen to slipknot” have you listened to Coq Roq? THEY SOUND NOTHING LIKE EACH OTHER!!! its cool to love you band and defend them, but this is a recoqulous (pun by all means intended)

  40. their = belonging to them, i.e. their house

    there = at that location, i.e. over there

    its = belonging to it, i.e. its hair was red

    it’s = contraction of it is, i.e. it’s a monster

    right = correct, i.e. you are right

    write = to put words to paper, screen, etc., i.e. to write a story

    Stop watching TV and read a damn book.

  41. ok. Slipknot as they are called are a bunch of mask wearing gimmick bastards. Their music has no substance. They are so stupid that they like fucking hit their head into shit on stage. I mean relly, coq roq is just as much like slipknot as brittany spears is like black sabbath. SLIPKNOT SUCKS. Besides, the chicken fries look yummy.

  42. Flatline is right for the most part but I’m not entirely sure that could be the case. Taking how I don’t know what’s going in the minds of the oh so wonderful band Slipknot.

    But let’s move back to the case that has already been discussed and discussed then trampled upon with childish remarks about who sucks and who’s gay.

    Coq Roq is just a mock metal band put together and endorsed by Burger King to market off their Chicken Fries. I don’t think any trickery is involved here, in fact, from Burger King’s earlier commercials. I’d say they’re actually trying to poke fun at the nu-metal genre for whatever reason. Not insulting but rather making light humor at the “seriousness” most nu-metal bands seem to want to pass.

    As for the masks, that’s already been around the block many times before. There’s been many bands that use masks as their gimmicks. Yet then there’s the point, which has been taken, that it’s the fact that Coq Roq has a similarity with Slipknot’s masks in specifics.

    Your point? Similarities, not exact copies. I can see a few similarities from bands that use the mask gimmick as well in Coq Roq’s masks. Which in my opinion is no harm done.

  44. fuck you slipknot haters, slipknot is the greatest band ever. so instead of saying how much you think they suck, go back and listen to your rap music or whatever shit that u listen to… bitches make me sick!

  45. Ok first of all this BK using a band made by them for endorsment is total bullshit… like honestly how cheesy can this get its a bunch of fags in chicken masks playing ripped off music ^_^… Secondly slipknot is one of my favourite bands… not because of the way they showboat but the music in general is great :) I’ll admit iowa was not the greatest album ever but i loved S.T. and vol3. And anybody here has the right to say they dislike them / like them, but anyone who says they suck ass is a total moron. I never say a band sucks ass unless its obviously that they can’t play/sing/w/e…. And to tip this off anyone supporting coq roq is just a bitch to the corporate machine :)

  46. come on coq roq?????? wtf is that slipnot is a good band… how is this even a fucking comparison. slipnot working for corperate america?!?! thats bull it goes against everything they stand for

  47. Anyone talking about the corporate machine should bite their tongue. CoqRoq took BKs money and used it to make music. They band is still performing. They took money, sure, but they’re not trying to make a statement, sell a record, etc. they’re just commercial. Slipknot, however, is more corporate than you all deny. The ‘Knot stands for nothing but dollar signs… has everyone forgotten the period of time where they vowed never to wear the masks again because it was a cheap gimmick and they didn’t want to become ” a joke like GWAR” ( who, by the way, are no joke. They are one of the premiere theatrical metal bands on the planet and their talent takes them on the road where their stage show makes them notorious. They never have to worry about rip offs or copycats cause they are and will always remain unmatched. ) I believe it took only about a year before their coke / gay prostitution habits had them crawling back to their publicist who was way too quick to announce “the masks are back” as opposed to “slipknots back”. Now why would they bash their own gimmick, then come crawling back to it? Most of their fans are too young to realize that they’re as big of a pawn as the guy standing in line at BK… only fatty’s gettin some fries with that.

  48. What the fuck man? Slipknot kicks ass, no one realizes that. They are on of the greatest METAL bands ever, dumbasses. They ain’t no fucking hard rock, take a goddamn rock and shove it up your ass whoever said that.

    Corey Taylor has the most amazing voice in a metal band, Joey is probably the greatest drummer that ever lived as well.

    All Slipknot haters can take a damn rock and eat it.

    Also, Wayne, go fuck off. Your the fag trying to make Corey look bad. Yep pal, fag IS an insult to your ass, goddamn momma’s boy.

    This isn’t just useless swearing, it’s my pure hate for all the stupid fuckheads out there yelling at Slipknot for doing this.

    Those Coq Roq idiots totally ripped them off, they have every right to sue. Coq Roq isn’t even a real band, and their trying to rip of a real band? Not smart, not even close to stupid if you ask me.

    Any ones who say “Cannibal Corpse” or “Slayer” is death metal sucks ass. All those bands are is writing about violent intercourse, and quite frankly, its fucking gross as hell.

    Slayer is just stupid, their music will always suck.

    And don’t even bring up Insane Clown Pussies….

    What I’m saying is that Slipknot CAN and WILL sue weather their bitchy fans like it or not.

    And their non-fans? Can go back to sucking their momma’s tits.

    You idiots need to stop posting this useless shit.

    Dave V, WHY THE FUCK WERE YOU BORN? Your a goddamn dumbass.

    “The chicken fries look yummy..”

    Go ahead, eat a few you fucking fat ass pussy. I doubt you’ve ever listened to them, everyone calls them stupid until they listen to their music.

    Gb_Hq, you are by far the dumbest poster to post on this board. Pal, you don’t understand anything… Slipknot can sue all they want, and they don’t do it for the money you asshole, you know nothing about them, just like every OTHER fuckhead that’s insulted them that has no solid ground on a band they hate just because their all fatasses stading in line for fucking chicken fries.

    They aren’t similar, their COPIES with VARIATIONS, it takes a keen eye to notice that.

    Also, I’m quite sick of hearing all these retarded fucks saying “KNOT SUX BALLZ, LMAO! COQ ROQ IS CUL IT KIX UR DOG LIKE SHIT MAN.”

    WHAT THE FUCK does that mean???

    If your gonna make a statment, don’t do it like some sober prostitute on crack.

  49. Slipnot is a pathetically worthless excuse for a “metal band,” and if they weren’t so threatened by the fact that anyone could easily and successfully ape their piss-poor “gimmick,” which is only a weak derivation of far superior acts preceding them, they wouldn’t be suing BK.

    I don’t know if the troglodytic, dull-witted morons actually have attempted to patent the idea of wearing idiotic masks and performing insanely unoriginal and talentless nu-metal bullshit, but I find it highly preposterous and sad that they would even think they had a chance in hell at suing a corporation for vaguely copying their absolutely uncreative style.

    Nine fuckwits in masks does not a good metal band make. Try listening to Children of Bodom, At the Gates, In Flames, Killswitch Engage, Nile, Naglfar, Old Man’s Child, the list goes on and on and on and no, it doesn’t include the “Insanely Crappy Posse of Nu-Metal Jack-Offs,” aka Slipknot.

  50. lordh, you satanic pussy… all those bands SUCK. Yes, I’m one of the very few smart ones that have tried listening to those bands, they suck, and they always will.

    Oh, and NEVER use my insults towards Slipknot. And by the way, “Jerk-offs” you dumbass.

    You look pretty stupid here. You’d look even dumber compared to a blade of grass you fat POS.

  51. “Nine fuckwits in masks does not a good metal band make.

    Firstly off as i have said before don’t insult the band… Just because you dislike them dosnt give you the right to insult them. It’s all a matter of musical preference… Secondly slipknot is quasi-nu-metal not just plain old nu-metal ;)

    “lordh, you satanic pussy… all those bands SUCK.”

    Also untrue children of bodom is fucking ace! Not as good as Cradle of filth nor dimmu borgir but still amazingly good. Click on my name and it will take you to my audio scrobbler and you’ll notice I love all types of metal ^_^ Although black metal is probably my favourite atm :) But buggie I realise you are a die-hard fan but no need to snap on others because they are ignorant enough to insult a band they dislike….

  52. alrigth heres for all the slipknot fans out there anyone who is on the side of a fuc*ing commercial is a moron andshould go fu*k there moms b/c all they do is watch tv in the first place so to all the ppl who think slipknot sucks

    FU*K YOU!!! if you 555 im 666!!!!

  53. slipknot is the fucking best band ever and to all you who think otherwise fuck you and the misfit parents who brought you to this earth

  54. Ok now that is a perfect example of how NOT to act… that was um whats the word for that pathetic? I hate when an intelligent topic can be turned to poo by mindless babble.

  55. coq roq is a real band. so what. we did some stuff for bk and they did some stuff for us. all you fucking retards that say we ripped off slipknot- think about this: how many guys in slipknot wear chicken masks?………? how many songs do they sing about chicken fries? holy shit i don’t see the jack in the box suing wal-mart. that wal-mart smiley looks alot like you-know-who.

    slipknots own joey jordison replied when asked in an interview in 2004 “….there’s a lot of room in music and the arts for bands to wear masks or whatever. it doesn’t matter – there could be a million bands with masks and slipknot would hold it’s own with the way we look at the world and the way we hold our band together and the way we communicate with each other and most importantly – the way we communicate with fans – so you’ll never get another slpiknot. we’re a one-of-a-kind band.”

    if anyone knows any thing about music today, you’ll know that the bands don’t get to make all the calls anymore. you got lawyers and other vermin. so take it easy on the bands that are trying to create. if you don’t like coq roq- cool. if you do- cool. if you don’t like slipknot- cool. if you do- cool. it’s about choice.

  56. let me get this straight… you’re claiming to actually BE a member of coq roq? haha awesome! i’m a member of wyld stallyns!!! “we did some stuff for bk and they did some stuff for us.” GOLD! PURE GOLD! especially when the “stuff” you did for them was sing songs with words like:

    “nuggets make us sick… one nation under chicken fries”

    so does it say “kabuki” on the little placard on your office desk at the PR firm or is that an internet-only thing?

    p.s. coq roq is much better than slipknot

    p.p.s. that’s like saying eating your own vomit is much better than eating someone else’s vomit.

  57. Nobody here is actually a member of coq roq i can assure you that especially when they use such words like “fucking retards” :)

    But while we’re at it id like to claim to be elvis pressley i’ve been hiding out in russia all this time getting drunk off vodka and resorting to canabalism ^_^

  58. ok everyone tell me why in the hell would you like a fucking band thats songs are about fucking poorly made chicken fries? just give me one reason

  59. ok everyone tell me why in the hell would you like a fucking band thats songs are about fucking poorly made chicken fries? just give me one reason

  60. Umm.. no one here is a member, I know that for a fact. And Hereticguy, just leave before you hurt yourself thinking on what to do next. All your here to do is start fights, little baby.

    Kabuki, your claiming your a member because your supporting Coq Roq, and everybody seem to of abandoned you so now, desperate trying to win your so called “Argument”, you claim you a member. How pathetic.

  61. Oh, FTW, if your interested, check out my journal. You can just click on my user name to get there. Be warned, it’s got some weird stuff on there since I’m a weird 12 year old! Anyway, read if ya want.

  62. Pwnage is my game (internet lingo is stupid, never use it.)

    Dave Lombardo is a good drummer, but Joey’s better, plus he plays in a better band, which makes him even better.

    Besides, what are you, trying to down everybody for liking Joey? Jeez, he’s a good drummer, so your going to diss people and just say “Screw that, Dave Lombardo is better”? Wow, that’s quite stupid. You’ve just downed every Slipknot fan here, you’ve also made yourself look like a total fool.

  63. There are nothing wrong with such masked their worn.We have no right to judged the book by its cover, right? Listening to these shit is something more enjoyable, excited and more significance if compare to a suck music such as hip hop or whatever…

  64. Ah buggie i thought yo uwere just going crazy there with all those multiple posts in a row ^_^ what was it some anti-slipknot tard going off the handle again?

  65. Ok, seriously, this is a complete waste of time. I am a big Slipknot fan and I see barely any resemblance in the two bands. So what, a lot of bands wear masks. Slipknot is way better than “Coq Roq”. They suck so much, I’m surprised BK is even using the band. And if BK is trying to get a lookalike band for Slipknot, than crap man, why didn’t they just get pure talent and ask Slipknot to do it themselves. No link between the bands, waste of time, drop the case, you’re better than this Slipknot and you will always rock, no matter what. BK is just trying to rustle some feathers. Besides, their ads make me sick and I don’t even like BK food to begin with. Slipknot is wasting time and BK is giving themselves an even worse than before name. Slipknot might as well go make an another album than pay any attention to this crap.

  66. Ok. The masks: lead singer seams to have dreads, I dont remember much more, but there are small things on each member taken from slipknot :/ but what I reacted to most was one video on their site: background music (into from IOWA track 1) was copied but a little mixed. It abvious its made to look like the disasterpieces DVD. They gather around in a cirle and start “pepptakt” or what ever you americans call it, also taken from the DVD. The camera angles and everything is thaken from Disasterpieces. This is stuff you Slipknothaters probably dont know about, but im saying this know, thay have ripped slipknot off, in both masks and preformance, but the music is far from slipknot. so there you have it. Now stop fucking around, cuz this is how it is. Should slipknot sue? NO! cuz its all soo fucking stupid. Let this shit go. Btw, Its pretty meningless stying to convince people that slipknot/coq roq is the best band ever :D haha, I love slipknot, but most people i know think they suck, so what, I dont start crying cuz my friends have my type of music. Ps. most people in here is gay. //Swedish Guy, Mr. Miss speller

  67. F*ck all yall who say that Slipknot sucks and Slipknot copied off of Gwar! Gwar is Fakey as sh*t.

    I dont know how yall can say that!

    You guys are complete idiots! ICP just totally sucks a$$! I hope they sue that so called metal band,a descrace to metal i say!, “Coq Roq.” Maggots…..Make them feel the Pulse!

  68. wayne curr, sorry i called you an idiot, i guess i just get mad easly,sorry bout that, anyways, ya, i like looking in to things to know the truth, Ps- thanks for saying i rock ROCK ON!

  69. hey SLiPKNoTFaN,

    I agree and besides Joey is also one of the fastest metal drummers in history. People who dont even like Slipknot respect Joey.

  70. STOP! Before you post another remark, why don’t you take a look at this and actually read the details of the lawsuit for yourself:

    http://www.thesmokinggun.com/archive/0817052slipknot1.html

    Now I am not a huge SlipKnot fan. But being from Des Moines, Iowa I am friends with Corey and his wife. I also happen to like Burger King… a lot. But SlipKnot’s reasons for suing are quite valid. And there are precedents to support their claim (Gene Simmons successfully settled a lawsuit against heavy metal singer King Diamond who copied his make-up design back in the late 80’s).

    Anyone who wants to argue more please disregard how much you like or hate either of the parties invloved and back it up with some solid logic and reasoning. Thanks.

    Hopefully this thread can end now.

  71. i think slipknot is good, with lyrics that occasionally border on the brilliant. but the point here that nobody is talking about is how national corporate jackass Burger King can sling sex like that (the original ads were much more “provacative”) but Janet Jackson is villified for showin’ a little nipple. Not that she and what’s his name were right for that gag, but let’s keep it real.

  72. ok u guys r dumb as fuk i didnt even no bout this til i researched i love pslpiknot ad first thing i said wen i saw the commercial was ” holy shit thats just like slipknot except u no coq roq isnt as metal as slipknot” i think slipknot should sue and hu cares if gwar got it first the claim they r aliens that rape ppl come on at least slipknot doesnt pretend to be somethin there not so i got somethin for all u anti- slipknot ppl fuck off and if u want real music by the subliminal verses by slipknot assholes

  73. I can’t believe I actually read all of this.

    Well, I must thank all of you, it was hilarious. But why does everybody keep calling Slipknot gay? Even if they were, it’s not up for the whole world to scream about. What ever.

    I really don’t have an opinion on this. If I had to name one, I think that saying that Burger King is trying to get the “Slipknot generation” to buy their chicken fries, is yes, a pretty good argument. But is it really worth of sueing? And what fan would be so stupid to think that some commercial joke band singing about chicken fries could have anything to do with Slipknot?

  74. Alright, I’m posting for the third time, this is getting kind of sad… Slipknot is it’s own band… Coq Roq is it’s own band… Lawsuit=Solved. Hooray! Now let’s all go about our own ways and quit talking on here… about something that doesn’t concern a single one of us, unless you’re that guy claiming to be Kabuki, then…uh… get a life if you’re not him, and if you are, good luck?

  75. coq roq? more like cock rot.

    i just read this shit like just then… and it makes me sick. some fucking band dressed up as birds singing shit likw bwack bwack buy fucking chicken fries? fuck that. slipknot rock and im so fucking glad i live in australia away from burger kings lame ass piece of shit pathetic marketing tools.

    death to cock rot.

  76. ok so i just read all the rest of that shit up there that i couldnt be fucked reading before i had my rant. so if this coq roq is actually a real band? why stoop so low… like why piss away all dignity (not that wearing chicken masks and singing chicken songs leaves you with much left) but why piss it all away and sell out to burger king? unless you were singing about chicken fries before burger king… then all i have to say is hahahaha. either way enjoy your life now… as a band who will only be remembered (if at all) by ppl who really like chicken.

    peace.

  81. Ok lets check this out:

    http://www.e-h.us/blog/archives/kabuki%20for%20web.jpg

    Kabuiki styled mask/facepaint

    does this resemble anything of Joey… No, but.. the in coq roq one member does have a TRADITONAL Kabuki looking chicken mask.

    next point:

    They sound nothing like slipknot nor do their getups match such as slipknot

    next point: The chicken that is suposedly wearing a gas mask simular to sid isnt wearing anything that resmbles a gas mask except maybe if you count the gogles but yes gogles are not A GAS MASK OR LOOK ANYTHING LIKE SID.

    Next Point: the mask that has dreds seems to apear that it is not the mask that has dreds but the wearer of the mask and COREYS old mask only had like what..2 dreds?… they look nothing alike.

    Basicly what is going on is .. when was the last time you really heard about slipknot in the news? yeah its all just a way they think they can get some plublicity.

    If coq roq was copying anything it would be the use of a kabuki mask simular to Tim Alexander in the Primus video Mr. Kringle lol

    The Man The Myth The Muffin.

  82. you people are all f*cking retarded. Slipknot is so much more talented then any of you will ever be. listen to opium of the people, the heratic anthem, and anyone who can sing and scream of and on for a whole f*cking tour has talent.

  83. I think this is all rather stupid myself. I honestly do not see what the big deal is. Slipknot is a crappy band designed to appeal to the masses.

    I only have one word for those who think Slipknot is the “greatest band eva”: Slayer. Ah hell make that another word: Death (excellent band)

  84. The group Slipknot is comprised of 9 uneducated idiots. They are rude as hell, express opinions on matters they are not qualified to speak on and all in all they play terrible music. So all you 12 year old juvenile f*ckers can go ahead and praise your “death metal” Gods. However, there is one lesson you little shits can take from this, Burger King is a restaurant and more than likely a possible future employer for many of you. So make sure to take note, that Burger King “IS A PLACE I CAN WORK!”

  85. HAHAHA… COREY AND JOEY IS HOMO SEXUAL!!! JOEY IS GAY LUK ON HIS F***IN FACE ITS LUK A LIKE LIZARD!! COREY IS 4 KIDZ ONLY!!! SUCKS DICK OF MCDONALD

  86.

  87. by the way hes name is not “cory taylor”who ever put the coments…make it clear.suposto said cory taylor rules” sorry for the trouble.”fuck every one againts slipknot and fuck cock rock o wat ever dig want to suck”

  88. Exactly what I would expect from a Slipknot fanboy from Iowa Cory Taylor. I can’t believe we are talking about Slipknot on here. What garbage. I would not even classify Slipknot as music. It’s just a bunch noise made by a bunch of coqs.
