The musical style of Stone Sour incorporates the genres of hard rock, alternative metal and even heavy metal.
The drum features patterns of double bass, while the guitar riffs are generally heavy. With two guitars, their songs usually provide a harmonic vibe, while vocally the singing is mixed up with screams. Josh Rand said that their style tends to be one of a thrash metal genre.
Corey Taylor has won the Golden Gods Award for Best Vocalist in the year 2013.
That same year, the band received a Golden Gods Award for Best International award. Drummer Roy Mayorga has also been nominated that same year for Golden Gods Award for Best Drummer.
