Corey Taylor has given us a star-studded new video for his latest single "Samantha's Gone." Recruiting the likes Vanderpump Rules reality star Tom Sandoval, actor Dean Cameron and metal parody group Steel Panther, the Slipknot leader has delivered a the very tongue-in-cheek clip — and one that takes some serious shots at "indie rock."

"The video for 'Samantha's Gone' served two purposes: making fun of so-called 'indie rock' bands and getting all my friends together to hang out and have a good time," Taylor recently told Bravo's The Daily Dish. "We all went back and forth between having fun and social distancing. Watching the first 'band' was great, then being fired from our OWN song in favour of Steel Panther was the icing on the cake — can't wait for everyone to see it!"

Watch the results of the pretty meta "Samantha's Gone" video below.

The track comes from Taylor's recent solo effort CMFT, which is out now via Tech N9ne & Kid Bookie.
