Slipknot and Stone Sour frontman Corey Taylor shared across all his social media accounts on Monday (October 7th) that he supports Disturbed singer David Draiman‘s desire to perform the U.S. national anthem at Super Bowl LIV next year.
Taylor wrote, “It’s long overdue for rock and metal to be represented at the Super Bowl. 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.” He added, “This needs to happen!”
Draiman told Loudwire earlier this week that he “would be honored beyond words” if he could sing the U.S. national anthem at next year’s Super Bowl, saying, “It would be nice to have rock represented on SOME level at the Super Bowl.”
Gladys Knight sang “The Star-Spangled Banner” at this year’s Super Bowl, which was held in her hometown of Atlanta. Panic! At The Disco’s Brendon Urie currently leads a Billboard poll asking who should sing the National Anthem before the 2020 game, which will take place at the Hard Rock Stadium in Miami on February 2nd, 2020.
