Slipknot is 9 piece band from Des Moines, Iowa
. "True " or "kvlt
" metalheads will call Slipknot 'false metal/emo/goth/etc'. I just call them a metal band. Before anyone starts calling me a 'poseur', at least hear me out. You either love them or hate but don't call them shit if you've never listened to them. At least respect Slipknot. To "true" metalheads: Yes i know Slayer, old Metallica
, Pantera, Lamb of God, etc.(you get the idea) are awesome and Slipknot can't compare to them,it doesn't give you the right to call them shit and call others poseurs only because they listen to Slipknot without knowing what other bands they listen to. Yes i know there are a lot of 13 yr olds that listen to Slipknot and say their the heaviest band in the world. I've heard more Pantera
and Lamb of God
on the radio than i've heard Slipknot. I only hear Slipknot when a person calls in and requests it. Slipknot didn't steal the mask idea from Mushroomhead. Mushroomhead paints their faces. Slipknot wears masks. How people came up with this idea is beyond me. To all the poseurs out there: Slipknot an awesome band, but you guys are making us look like idiots. Slipknot is not black metal, death metal, or thrash/speed metal...
a kick ass band with nine guy. their music is great and they put on an amazing live show. their best songs in my opinion are
1. spit it out
2. my plague
5. everything ends
if you dont like them thats fine, but people who are saying if you wear a hot topic t shirt your not a real maggot, stfu. the real non-maggots are the people who you ask "do you like slipknot?" and they say yes or w/e and they only know them from guitar hero. those are the real tools.
slipknot is an amazing band and if you dont like them you can kiss my ass
Slipknot is without doubt ONE of the greatest bands ever. It is composed of 9 very talented musicians. and 9 is not to many, so dont hate them just cause they have 9 members, they dont use all of them in MOST songs as a matter of fact. the members are ,
0. Sid Wilson (D.j)
1. Joey Jordison (drummer)
2. Paul Grey (Bassist)
3. Chris Fehn (Percussion)
4. James Root (Rythm Guitar)
5. Craig Jones (Samples)
6. Shawn Crahan A.K.A Clown (Percussion)
7. Mick Thompson (Leag Guitar)
8. Corey Taylor (Vocals)
As for you asshole, who says that slipknot fans need to simmer down a bit and listen to all genres of metal, I HAVE and i like them ALL, but i am most satisfied with slipknot. and you ppl who say that slipknot is nu-metal, your completely wrong cause they have no genre, they say it themselves that it is a mixture of metel/rock genres. On behalf of the beleifs of some retards (who are wrong), Slipknot is not satanic. If you do beleive they are, give me all you got! That is all i have to say. GREATEST DAMN BAND EVER!
Slipknot kicks teh shit out of slayer!!!
A awesome band. Better before there newest album. 9 man band who know one can copy.
Met 3 members Cory, Chris and Paul.
"Man I saw Slipknot, and they are Kick ass!"
Slipknot is a sort of teenie bopper heavy metal band. They are very good and have agressive and gr8 lyrics. They need a new guitarist tho :P But the drummer is very good. Since going mainstream alot of people do think they are for teenie boppers. I still think they are gr8 altho i do prefer some of the better heavy metal out there like opeth etc etc
Stapled shut - Inside an outside world and I'm
Sealed in tight – Bizarre but right at home
Claustrophobic - Closing in and I'm
Catastrophic - Not again
I’m smeared across the page - And doused in gasoline
I'm wear you like a stain - Yet I'm the one who's obscene
Catch me up on all your sordid little indiscretions
I've got no time to lose, I'm just caught up in all the cattle
Frey the strings…
Throw the shapes…
Hold your breath…
I am a world before I am a man
I was a creature before I could stand
I will remember before I forget
Before I forget that!
the 9 membered band that will kill you with there voices
in the news slipknot killed a boy of 10 by shouting all hope is gone
