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!

a fucking (sic) band. they stand for what is right. they where homemade tribal masks to say that you should not care what you look like because everyone has a talent or something else great about them. they do everything for their fans (commonly reffered to as "maggots"). they can be falsely compared to nu-metal, they cannot be pinned to a certain type of music. their style is SlipKnoT. and out to all you stupid ass mother fucking cock sucking wanna be emo or punk posers out there. you think they suck because you have obviously either no taste in good music (hint the emo and punk) or you have never heard any of their songs. there will never be another band like SlipKnoT, ever. they are the single greatest metal band of all time. if you think they are not talented. listen to a mick thompson guitar solo or a joey jordison drum solo. the rest of the band can do the same as what you hear on these tracks (jim root, chris fehn, shawn crahan, corey taylor, paul gray, sid wilson, craig jones have not recorded solos, they simply kick ass in the songs) all you dumb fucks ARE entitled to your own opinions (no matter how fucking stupid they are) and theres nothing we can do to change your empty minds. so piss off and listen to SlipKnoT mother fuckers.

A band that recieves a lot of hate from most self-proclaimed metalheads for some unknown reason. Because they're too commercial? Because they have no talent? Because they got a LOT of band members?? Because they wear MASKS??

Well, I will go ahead and reply to these:

1. Too commercial
Well, let me ask you something. When has anyone really played a Slipknot song on TV, the radio, or anything else?? Slipknot did not rely on mainstream help to get popular. They simply became loved by their fans and with their help, they became this famous. And what's wrong with a band being popular? Why exactly does being popular mean that a band sucks? Your "Metallica" and "Slayer" are no less famous than Slipknot, and no less commercial either, for that matter. But they're still kickass bands. So, who cares??

2. No talent
This is the most bullshit thing anyone can say about Slipknot. Go ahead and actually LISTEN to their songs for once, idiots. While it may not sound like it at first, there IS a lot of technical proficiency involved in playing those riffs. And, you say they got no guitar solos? I can name three:
1. Vermillion
2. Welcome
3. Pulse of the Maggots
Go ahead. Listen to them. Guitar solos right in your face. If that's not talent, then I don't know what is.

3. Lots of band members
Yes, I DO agree that some of them are quite useless, but they still help to make the music the way it sounds, even if it's a simple drum crash by Clown. They also help add to the band's image. And to those of you who say image is just a sellout device to get more money, then let me ask you - what bands besides grunge bands have ever not given a damn about image? Even Iron Maiden had quite an image to go with their music, and they're one of the greatest metal bands around. Who cares about how many members a band has, or what they look like? If they rock hard and please the fans, isn't that all that matters?

4. Masks
Most of the band members have shown themselves without the masks by now. So therefore, you can't say it's to "hide their ugliness" or "hide in embarrassment because they know they suck", which they don't anyway. Lead singer Corey Taylor and guitarist James Root also play in a second band called Stone Sour, and they don't wear masks there. Once again, the masks in Slipknot just add to the image. It shouldn't matter any more than the music.

In conclusion, Slipknot is an amazing, talented band that deserves more respect from metalheads everywhere. Just because they're a "new" band doesn't mean they suck. Take the time to listen to them, and you'll see what I mean.
Idiot: Pff Slipknot is such a fake nu-metal band! They've got no talent and hide their ugliness with stupid goth-wannabe masks!

Non-idiot: You're completely wrong. First of all, Slipknot has lots of talent, and if you listen to their new album, you'll actually understand (or maybe not >_> ). And second of all, they've all shown their faces already. They're not hiding anything.

Idiot: .. but.. 80s metal is the only good music around!

Non-idiot: It IS good, but it's not the ONLY good music. Go and expand your horizon, you moron.

A pretty decent nu-metal band from Iowa, consisting of 9 members. Famous for the masks they wear and their status among other nu-metal bands. Their new album (Subliminal Verses) is also pretty good. Still, they're not the greatest metal band - or even nu-metal band - but they can definately crank out some tunes, and they're all around good guys who deserve some respect.
"Liberate" and "Duality" are examples of Slipknot's music.

1.knot made so that it will slip along the rope or line around which it is tied. 2.knot made so that it can b undone easily by pulling on either of the free ends. This is the real definition of the word slipknot, not the band that all the kids who think they are goth listen to.
"Goth" Kid:Slipknot isn't a real word, it's the hardcorest fucking band alive
Me:It is a real word; go look it up in Webster, you fucking dick suck.

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.
