Yesterday, the internet was filled with the new of Corey Taylor and how he “blew out [his] left testicle” while practicing “Dokken high notes.” While fans feverishly debated on whether the Slipknot vocalist had actually done such a thing, his fiance Alicia assured the internet that the singer’s genitalia remained unharmed.
Now, it looks like Dokken have responded to Taylor’s tragic mishap with their, uh, deepest sympathy.
Taylor posted the unfortunate news May 29 saying, “Working on my ‘87 Dokken high notes this morning. Fucked around and blew out the left testicle. Careful on re-entry, kids. #kissofdeath #pissinblood”

Taylor’s fiance Alicia later responded with, “Can confirm: @CoreyTaylorRock’s balls are just fine.”
