Machine Gun Kelly Takes Shots at Slipknot During Riot Fest Set


 Machine Gun Kelly had some mid-performance shade for Slipknot at this weekend’s Riot Fest in Chicago.

On Sunday night, festival attendees were given a scheduling-spurred choice of catching MGK or the Corey Taylor-fronted metal band. The two acts were among those whose scheduled set times overlapped with others, which—of course—is simply part of the experience for any festival. Both started at 8:30 local time, with Slipknot slated for 75-minute set while MGK’s slot was an hour.


Between songs, as seen in a clip that’s since gone viral, MGK dabbled in ageism when telling his fans what he was “really happy” to not be doing.
