Slipknot worry about quality

Corey Taylor - oh-so-scary-bemasked-man from Slipknot - doesn't like new music:

"Why would you blame [people who download music]?" Taylor said. "Half the fucking albums that are out there are shit. I don't download, but at the same time, I don't buy new music 'cause it all sucks. Okay, there's a handful of bands that I buy, but other than that, I just buy old shit because old shit is good. Sorry!

"People wanna blame the decline of album sales on downloading, I think it's actually the record companies' fault," he added. "I think it's the quality of the product. If record companies would stop giving any fucking mook on the street with a fringe a record deal or their own record label, maybe you would sell more fucking albums, dipshits."

Maybe he has a point. Perhaps there's some overarching symbol of the decline in quality of mainstream releases; some indication that anyone at all can get a record company and a huge marketing push, dominating the marketplace and driving down standards across the chart racks? Like, say, Slipknot being number one?

After all, if you're suggesting that the current state of chart music is terrible, and you're the leading brand in that market, what other conclusion would you reach?
