It's incredibly great that a lot of definitions about this band include the words "suck" "shit" "worthless" etc... i bet if one of you read a bad definition about Jay-Z or AFI, you'd probably go cut your wrists and cry to your mommy.
Anyway... Slipknot's a 9-man band from Des Moines, Iowa. While the general idea is that Slipknot is nu-metal/rapcore/metal/etc...and while it's true they are those things, they are also something else. They're a band that has come a long way from their roots (if any of you listened to Mate. Feed. Kill. Repeat. you'll know what i mean...) and has become an extremely talented band. I'm not sure what happened to the original singer, but the current singer, Corey Taylor, was recruited to sing for the band after the original vocalist departed from the band, or got kicked out, or something. In any case, I don't particularly give a shit what you boyband-lovers have to say about them...Corey has an amazing set of vocal cords, being able to go from the hard, face-ripping, mother-sodomizing growls of "The Heretic Anthem" heard on Iowa to the melodic, soul-wrenching singing of "Snuff" from their new cd, All Hope Is Gone. James and Mick play guitar like they'll die if they stop, and Joey is one of the best drummers i personally have ever heard.

Yes, Corey does use a lot of profanity. Profanity's a good way to express frustration, anger, hopelessness, and other emotions...which is the general theme running through their songs. Slipknot is excellent to listen to when you're pissed, upset, or just feel like rocking your fucking brains out.

No, they did NOT "steal" their ideas for the masks from GWAR or Mushroomhead or anyonethefuckelse. Corey himself described it as a way for the band to disassociate themselves from who they are outside of the band and to get more invovled in the music. Stating that Slipknot stole the idea for masks from another band is like if someone called you out because you happened to pick up the same fucking pair of shoes from Wal Mart as they have...so get the fuck over yourselves. There was a lot of shit over how the members appear outside of the band without masks...well...the fuck do you want? The masks are a part of Slipknot, not Stone Sour when Corey's singing with them, or Korn since Joey's been drumming for them occasionally.

While Slipknot is a very talented band, anyone stating that they are "the best" probably needs a foot in their ass. No one band can be the best at any genre, because all people have different tastes, and while I personally love every cd they've put out since their self-titled, you may only like Iowa, or think Murderdolls is better, or just not like Slipknot. That's fine. But you dont aquire millions of fans and go platinum by being a piece of shit, and there's figures floating around the net to prove that Slipknot doesn't suck. They're decent. You dont have to like them, but at least respect them. Music is just a way to tell a story, explain a lesson, relate feelings... it's not the way the story is told, but the story itself.

As for the rest of you Slipknot fans...STAY (sic) MUTHAFUCKASSSSSSSSSSSSSSSS!
Listen to Slipknot's 9.0 Live cd...i swear to all that is good and kind your blood will be pumping and you'll want to headbang and jump the fuck around like you just lost your mind.

90% of the people posting on this site are fucking stupid. Half of you are narrow minded haters who don't see the band for who they are and the other half are just pussy little fanboys who think Slipknot is the ONLY metal band in existance. The rest are normal people who love music altogether and respect all forms of metal wether it be death, black, nu or heavy.

I've got news for the 90% of the fools in here. To the haters: You're no different from rappers and RnBers (whatever the fuck theyre called) who bash Slipknot for their music. You're basically posers. Just because you listen to bands that aren't 'mainstream' doesn't mean they're the best bands on the fucking planet. It was never Slipknot's intention to become famous and/or rich. People enjoyed their music and assisted them in their progress. Corey Taylor (vocalist) stated in an interview 'You don't sell out concerts, meet millions of fans and go platinum if your music sucks. Period." Therefore SLIPKNOT DOES NOT SUCK! And you can't say they are mainstream...think of it this way...how often do you hear a Slipknot song played on the radio? How often do you see a Slipknot clip being played on the Top 40 charts? Well? What's your answer haters? Go fuck yourself and your underground bullshit. Just because a band is famous doesn't mean they are shit. Imagine your precious underground bands become as famous as Slipknot..will you still like them? From your rants I'm guessing NO.

For the fanboys: Its good that you like Slipknot but for God's sake...don't EVER say they're 'real' metal or 'Slipknot is real metal. Every other band in existance is shit". Open your ears and listen to the metal of the fucking world. You have to understand that Slipknot was influenced by bands such as KISS, Metallica, Black Sabbath and yes...even KORN!!! Joey wouldn't even be drumming right now if it wasn't for Korn's influence so SHUT THE FUCK UP AND ENJOY ALL METAL!!! It's the message in the songs fuckers. If you can relate to the lyrics and the intensity of the music then you have nothing to bitch about.

To the rest of people like me who are normal and love all metal and Slipknot...stay (SIC) fuckers. (Thats a compliment btw)
Slipknot are fucking amazing. I respect them for their intensity, intimacy with the fans and love for music. No one has the right to say they are crap for they really are a band to admire and respect for their achievements.

Slipknot comes from Des Moines, Iowa. It's a metal band with 9 members, known for wearing jump suits and different masks.
They really don't belong in any particular genre, just metal. It's not Black or Death Metal. It CAN be Nu-metal, cuz that simply means new metal and Slipknot is new metal, so...But it's best to just call it metal.
The members:
#0. Sid Wilson - Turntables
#1. Joey Jordison - Drums
#2. Paul Gray - Bass
#3. Chris Fehn - Percussion
#4. James Root - Guitar
#5. Craig Jones - Media/samples
#6. Shawn "Clown" Crahan - Percussion
#7. Mick Thompson - Guitar
#8. Corey Taylor - Song
Their albums:
Mate Feed Kill Repeat - 1996
Selt-titled - 1999
Iowa - 2001
Vol. 3 (The Subliminal Verses) - 2004
Planning another album right now.

If you think they suck, sure, that's your opnion, but they ARE talented.
You can at least be neutral with your definitions, and try to describe the band instead of telling everyone how much they suck, bla bla bla. Let them get their own opinion.

They're NOT mainstream. Every god damn band that's becoming a bit popular is, according to most people, mainstream. Like In Flames, Cradle of filth and so on. But they're not. Something that is mainstream, though, is blaming every band's latest albums for being mainstream. Just like Vol.3 with Slipknot and In Flames - Soundtrack to your escape. Slipknot haven't got much help from TV or other media, so.. that's not mainstream. I can agree that there is some people, not many, who claim to be maggots, Slipknot's fans, but they've only heard Slipnot's more popular songs like Wait and bleed, Duality and Vermilion.

Many say Slipknot's fans need to listen to more metal.
I listen to Metallica, Slayer, Maiden, The Haunted, In Flames, Cradle of Filth and such band. Enough?
I saw Slipknot last night. They're really great. Especially their concerts. Stay (SiC) fuckers

1)Slipknot is a band that originated out of Iowa, and has 9 members. Despite what some people think, Slipknot is VERY far from Death metal, Black metal and is not metal, either. DEFINETLY NÜ-METAL!!! Still good though.
2)A type of knot used to either hang yourself, “strap” your arm while injecting a form of narcotic or to tie something
1) So and so listened to Slipknot last night, and heard the major KoRn influences in certain songs
2)She used a Slipknot

Ok, let me give the real definition of this word. 9 man band from Iowa, have came out with 4 albums. The band is NOT black or death metal, i call it simply..metal. The band does have talent, as for the drummer joey (not the best in the world, but up there) and the vocalist corey. Overall this band is fairly good, some of the songs ARE complete bull shit. This definition is coming from someone who listens to ALL genres of metal, slayer, dimmu borgir, absu, cannibal corpse, so i know a little bit about the music.

The slipknot fans need to simmer down and listen to all metal.

As for the bashes, you guys need to mind your own business and put proper definitions.
Man : Hey, do you like slipknot?
Me : Yeah, fairly good band.
Man : Cool, slayer is my fav. though
Me : ANGEL OF DEATH!

Cleverly marketed nu-metal band, targetting angsty teenage boys to appeal to the largest possible market. Considered a "gateway band" to some, as they lead the children towards harder music.
