Slipknot's Corey Taylor is a big Justin Bieber fan

Corey Taylor wants to collaborate with Justin Bieber. This is not a wind up.

Odd couple alert.... Slipknot frontman Corey Taylor, widely known for songs about death, screwing and murder, has been telling Revolver magazine about his hitherto unmentioned admiration for Justin Bieber, widely known for being a douche. Surprisingly, Taylor has nothing but love for the Bieberbot. The subject came up as he was asked about the frankly incredible fan made mash up of Bieber's Baby with Slipknot's Psychosocial, which you can enjoy in all its glory below.

"I know Justin wasn't responsible for it, but I just thought it was so cool." Taylor said.

"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. I was in Baltimore on my book tour and Justin was nearby in Washington, DC. I tried to get him down to my reading because I wanted to try to do an acoustic version of Psychosocial Baby together. But he was actually visiting children's hospitals. You can't say anything bad about a guy who's visiting children's hospitals."

Ermmm. Wasn't that something that worked in Jimmy Saville's favour? Anyway, there are currently no plans for Taylor and Bieber to record the long awaited Psycho Baby mash up, but we live in hope. Here's the youtube version for ya-
