Slipknot star Corey Taylor is terrified of great white sharks.

The masked rocker, who strikes fear into music fans around the world whenever he's onstage, admits he can't even watch the big fish on Tv.

He tells Revolver magazine, "I'm terrified of them. For real, sharks scare the s**t out of me. Like, hyperventilating, sweating-through-my-clothes, sweating-like-a-f**king-girl scared."

The ultimate irony is the rocker married a woman who is obsessed with sharks.
