DAILY WARDEN TRACKS... Today's song is from one of Corey Taylor's bands, STONE SOUR. His other band is, of course, SLIPKNOT. Anyway, this is the second single they released, and it's responsible for pushing Stone Sour into the mainstream. A lot of their other stuff is waaay heavier, but this tune always resonated with Bear Listeners. The track is "BOTHER," click above to listen.
