Let’s help Corey Taylor think of a better book title
America 51: Derp 4 Lyfe just doesn’t have enough zip to it.
Screamy mask-person Corey Taylor is releasing a book about how great it is to be an American living in America, and how when you’re not actually in America, you view everything as though your eyeballs were still there. In America, that is. Or something. The full title of his book, America 51: A Probe Into The Realities That Are Hiding Inside The Greatest Country In The World, doesn’t exactly make its point clear. And yes, that’s the actual title, even though it sounds like a poor attempt at the longest and least interesting book title ever to adorn a publication reduced to 99¢ at the local bookstore’s going-out-of-business sale.
A few months ago Joe gave us an exclusive look at an excerpt from this book, but apparently the publisher is still having doubts about that lengthy title, since it’s not something the average Slipknot fan will have luck spelling properly when they get it tattooed on their neck in bad scripty font.

Mr. Dreadlock Mask Man loves long titles, having written two other books like A Funny Thing Happened on the Way to Heaven: (Or, How I Made Peace with the Paranormal and Stigmatized Zealots and Cynics in the Process), and You’re Making Me Hate You: A Cantankerous Look at the Common Misconception That Humans Have Any Common Sense Left. If you’ve ever listened to timeless metal classics like Spit It Out and Eeyore and thought, “I wonder what makes that shouty gentleman tick?” then surely these books will pique your interest! Just check out this glowing review from a pickup truck:
Since all of us here at TovH are enormous fans of Yelling Jumpsuit Guy, let’s all pitch in and help him think of a better book title. Let’s make sure that forlorn dad browsing Barnes & Noble for yet another of his nephews’ birthdays notices this book and purchases it in the interest of reading about what the guy from Stone Sour thinks about our country, then gives up reading it due to his hectic work-from-home schedule, but affords the book a permanent place on his basement toilet tank lid. After all, we support our rock star heroes and we want them to do well! I certainly appreciate your contributions to this endeavor, and Sir Spooky Face appreciates them as well (probably)!
“I push my fingers into your eyes in thanks!” – Corey Taylor
