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.”


Dokken later responded with a “Be careful Corey!” accompanied by two laughing/crying emoji and a horns emoji.

Taylor retweeted the reply with the best response.

“Hahaha doin my best! WHY YA GOTTA HIT THOSE HIGHS?!?”

Whitney is your definition of pop punk trash. If she's not jamming to State Champs or Grayscale, then she's probably out enjoying the finer things or working a show for Fearless Records as a Street Team Leader. She's a realist and an optimist, calling the city of Columbus her home. A huge fan of naps, Whitney often falls asleep in a city that doesn't. She's not hard to please, finding joy in discovering new bands or playing Everlong on the late night radio. Working at Alt Press and breaking ground in the music scene have always been a dream of hers, telling herself at an early age she was down for losing it all to make that happen! Now the weekend writer at AP, Whitney is prepared to be noticed and eager to contribute to the scene. If you catch her at a concert feel free to stick around, make small talk, or discuss her overuse of State Champs lyrics and song titles in her bio.
