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)
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.

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?

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.
Me : Yeah, fairly good band.
Man : Cool, slayer is my fav. though
Me : ANGEL OF DEATH!
