Corey Taylor and Stone Sour Dip Their Toes in Other Media

Few bands can straddle the fine line between hard rock and heavy metal -- or underground credibility and commercial viability -- as well as Stone Sour.

The band has released five studio albums, each of which has challenged and exceeded the band's -- and its fans -- expectations. Stone Sour has earned three Grammy nominations (all for Best Metal Performance) and has sold more than 4 million albums worldwide in the process.
