Corey Taylor Supports David Draiman's Goal To Sing The National Anthem at Super Bowl LIV

October 8, 2019

When it was announced that Latin/Pop stars Shakira and Jennifer Lopez would be headlining the halftime show at Super Bowl LIV, the rock and metal communities once again felt snubbed by mainstream culture, although organizers stated that their decision was made to salute the latin community in Miami, FL, where the game will take place.

However, earlier this week Disturbed vocalist David Draiman announced his desire to sing the National Anthem at the Super Bowl. They suggested that fans go to Billboard to vote for David Draiman by filling his name in the "Other" section. Since then he has received a tidal wave of support from the rock and metal community, including a stamp of approval from Slipknot/Stone Sour frontman Corey Taylor.

"It’s long overdue for rock and metal to be represented at the Super Bowl," Taylor wrote on his Twitter. "Let’s make our voices heard in support of our brother David Draiman of Disturbed and let the NFL know we want him to sing the anthem." Then on his Instagram account, Taylor wrote, "This needs to happen!"

This needs to happen! Let’s have our voices be heard in support of our brother @davidmdraiman!
