I've been reading a lot of entries, and I'm noticing how similar they are. Either "OMFG SLIPKNOT ROOLZ" or "Slipknot fans are all greasy, fat, and have no sense of music and have OBVIOUSLY not listened to oldschool shit." Now, this is not going to be one of those definitions.
I like Slipknot. I like Slipknot, System of a Down, but yet I like Metallica, Children of Bodom, and what many of you "metalheads" would call "Real metal." Isn't metal just all about the same "fuck you" attitude? Who doesn't love a bad boy/girl?
I'm not your typical "Slipknot" fan, even though they are one of my favorites. I'm not greasy, I shower every day or every second day, thank you very much. I never even heard of hot topic until my boyfriend (who loves Slipknot as well) told me what it was. Never been inside a Hot Topic, either.
I like hippy music, death metal, "real" metal, "nu" metal, oldies, etc. I like anything. I was a jazz player for a short amount of time.
A lot of you bash Joey Jordison, as well. Let's see you do better. Let's see you take some drum sticks and pound out one of his riffs. Can you do it? No, thought not. I'm a drummer. I know how hard it is to go THAT fast. And it's REALLY hard. He's pretty good, and he stands for a lot of cool things, if you actually TOOK the time to research your shit before you talk.
I'm not a typical "maggot" I've heard of the old stuff, I know what M.F.K.R means (MATE, FEED, KILL, REPEAT), bitches. My hair is not 2 feet long, I've got a pixie cut. I'm into all the oldies and the new stuff, because I actually HAVE a wide musical taste. I'm an art student who is actually quiet and doesn't yell about Slipknot and Nu Metal every second minute, though I do enjoy my band shirts.
Don't be so quick to label Slipknot fans. Or Nu Metal fans, for that matter. Because odds are some will receed from the majority. Just don't label, period.
I AM NOT THE MAJORITY.
"you're just a braindead maggot. Have you heard of Metallica, Children of Bodom, Slayer, etc?"
"Yes. And I enjoy all of them, INCLUDING Slipknot"
"Think before you label, bitches."
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.more...
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...
Device used to secure arm, leg or neck when shooting dope. Such as a belt, cloth or cord of some type.
I'm tying on a slipknot, cuz my ropes are brokedown & I need a fix.
Slipknot comes from Des Moines, Iowa. It's a metal band with 9 members, known for wearing jump suits and different masks.more...
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...
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
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.
"fuck you, wah wah wah, my daddy drinks because I cry"
The most liked and most hated band in the world. Some people like them, some hate them, but everyone has at least heard of them. I personally like them. (SIC)
Me: Do you like Slipknot?
#1: Hell Yeah!!!
#2: Fuck No!!!
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!
