US Radio Comments On Stone Sour’s ‘Bother’

Posted on February 12, 2008

Check out these amazing quotes from US radio on Stone Sour’s “Bother”. “I actually heard the song on another radio station while I was traveling and I was mesmerized. I HAD TO PLAY IT ON MY STATION. It’s truly stunning in so many ways…It gets instant reaction, phones all over the place and just wait until you tell your listeners that it’s Corey Taylor from Slipknot singing…they’ll shit their pants, just like I did. This will be a smash. If “Bother” from Stone Sour doesn’t go number one, I’m gonna cut my pinky off.” LIas Biello, PD – WHRL/ Albany “The Corey Taylor song generates phones EVERY TIME we play it (and we’re playing it 50+ times a week)! Who says bands need to scream at the top of their lungs about killing their family to get a reaction from listeners? This one is a WINNER. We put it right into a “heavy” because our listeners love it… and so do we!!” Todd Thomas, PD – WMRQ/ Hartford “Stone Sour’s ‘Bother’ is the cinderella song of the summer. It’s lit up the phones from specialty airplay to power rotation crushing all in its path. It’s hard to imagine such subtle, smoldering anger from an unmasked man and a guitar.” Vinnie Ferguson, MD – WXDX/ PITTSBURGH “As I was tracking through the Spiderman Soundtrack, I heard this amazing song called “Bother”, only to find out that it was the lead singer of Slipknot. Who knew this guy could sing, this song is not only a big surprise, but a SMASH!!!…what’s next a metal song from Nelly?” Mike Peer,MD – WXRK/NYC “Bother” was instantly the #1 requested song at the station. It is also over 260 cume spins already. CIMX / Detroit Immediate phones!…and now an official add. KPNT/ St. Louis “We did our research when we started playing this, chat rooms, fan pages…the Slipknot fans have embraced this song.”Bother” is the biggest record on the radio right now (#1 Phones). It’s a record you can feel, and that is so rare these days…” Paul Marshall, MD – KRXQ/Sacremento “Bother” has been #1 phones for 8 weeks running. It’s in Power, and we still can’t play it enough. Sean Elliott, PD, KAZR/Des Moines
