Come for the hilarious crowd, stay for the great performance!

The Chicago Open Air festival took place this past weekend, with Stone Sour performing on the fest’s last day.  Before the set’s end, however, the unsurprisingly raucous crowd decided to launch into a “F*ck Nickelback” acknowledging the strange war of words between Chad Kroeger and Corey Taylor.

The chant happened before Taylor’s performance of “Bother,” which he playfully referred to as a “non-hit song,” and then proceeded to sing the hell out of it.  Even with questionable audio quality from cell phone video footage, Taylor sounded fantastic.
