Until one of you losers can describe the differences between Black Metal, Death Metal, Industial, and Nu Metal, I'm just going to call them metal. Why you're so concerned with the categorization of Slipknot's music is beyond me.
Things Slipknot is not: Rock, Country, Rap, Hip-Hop, R&B, Techno, Pop... what's left if not metal?

a band consisting of 9 members, who currently have 4 albums out and one in production, but please my fellow metal heads, you all need to reailse that hating other forms of metal is just stupid, sure some forms of metal may be different from the kind of metal you may prefer but its no reason to hate other metal genres, im not saying you have to like them but the most deasent thing you can do is at least respect the musicians for their talent and work, the music you SHOULD be critizing is every mainstream or rap peice of shit out there, that shit is the bane of society not metal, so please come to your senses and stop fighting amongst yourselves over what is true metal and what is not, metal is metal plain and simple
Slipknot has some awesome concerts

A so-called "nu metal" band that evolved in the early to mid 90's.

It consists of 9 members.

#0 - Sid, turntables.
#1 - Joey, drums. main set
#2 - Paul, bass.
#3 - Chris, custom percussion.
#4 - James, guitar.
#5 - Craig, samples/media.
#6 - Shawn, custom percussion.
#7 - Mick, guitar.
#8 - Corey, vocals.

The band has gone through some changes. Meaning they've had ex-members.

The band currently has FOUR albums out to this date.

1 - Rare demo CD. "Mate. Feed. Kill. Repeat."
2 - Self-titled. "Slipknot"
3 - "Iowa"
4 - "Volume 3: The Subliminal Verses"

The band originated out of Des Moines, Iowa.
All of the band members have been involved with at least 2 or more other bands since the early 90's.

In my OPINION, they are a kick-ass band.
Your opinions may differ greatly.

Some of Slipknot's widely used phrases:

- People = Shit.
- Maggots. Their fans. It's not meant to offend.
- (Sic)
- 742617000027. the first song on their self-titled album, and that number appears on all of their jumpsuits. I forgot how it originated.

Some may think that Slipknot creates a grotesque image.

Hm. I guess that's accurate enough.

They all wear masks.
They still make their own to this day.
Their masks may vary from album to album.

One of their members, Joey Jordison #1, drums, created a few of their logos, and he also came up with the word "maggot" for their fans.

Some people may think that Slipknot is just a mainsteamed band who stand up on stage in their masks, screaming out nothing with a bit of profanity.

Well, you know what?
Fuck that.
If you ACTUALLY sit down to READ and decipher their lyrics, you'll find out that their lyrics are full of insightful meanings and they have a very wide-spread vocabulary.
Yes, I will admit it. They swear a lot. But what so-called 'nu metal' band doesn't? Hmm?

I personally think that this band does NOT get enough credit.
Like I mentioned previously, they have VERY insightful lyrics with deep meaning. But not only that.. their MUSIC is excellently written.
Their drummer, Joey Jordison #1, drums writes most of their actual music.
He's a very talented young man.

Ah, I have to add this about Joey..
I've read in MANY drummers' magazines and websites that Joey Jordison is one of the fastest and BEST drummers of all time.
So fuck you.

Anyway. Getting off-subject.

Slipknot. Should. Get. More. Credit.

So, you want it plain and simple?
Slipknot is a 'nu metal' fuck that band that consists of 9 members. The band originated in the early to mid 90's with about 5 original members. They're all from Des Moines, Iowa.

Slipknot's new album came out yesterday!

People = shit.

1) A type of knot designed to skip once tied. Common uses for this are;
to increase pressure on the arm revealing veins (often for injections of not-always-legal substances or IVs)
Nooses, for hanging a person by the neck
Provoking suffocation

Negative associations with this type of knot lead to;

2) A metal band with noticeably aggressive, provocative, depressing yet ironically reflective (and practically inaudiable) lyrics. The band, SlipKnot, have caused contraversy because some of there lyrics promote self harm.
The band itself has an overwhelming number of members, and even more fans.
Each use of an intrument played in a track, although talently played, can be described as distorted, aggressive and often chordless...
"Looks like a suicide -- it's a slipknot noose"
"Pass me a slipknot, I need to shoot up"
"Has anyone got the new SlipKnot album?"

A band containing 9 members. Although a 4 man band would probably sound the same.
John: Slipknot has 9 members.
Jim: Yeah, but 5 of them are pointless.
John: You suck.
Jim: Just like Corey Taylor's mother should have done.
John: Nice.

A 9-piece metal band from Iowa, famous for wearing masks and for their chaotic live performances. They call their fans 'maggots' and have recently (May 2004) released their 3rd album, which is seen as their best yet.
"'Vol.3...' is, quite simply, a masterpiece - and a massive raised middle digit to all the stumbling nu-metal no-marks that rode in on the band's coattails."

SlipKnoT is a Nu-metal band. It consists of nine members. They have talent, despite what people may tell you. SlipKnoT is a very polarizing band because of number of members/what the do on stage/ect. ect. You either hate them for the most part, or you really like them. there fans are called MaGGoTs many people try to make the MaGGoTs feel bad because they call themselves MaGGoTs, but to all of them please note: We don't give a shit. Being a MaGGoT is a badge of honor to us. Also recently SlipKnoT has put out alot of pop songs i.e. dead memories and snuff to name two. Alot of emo pussy faggots like these song because they think it's cool. to said emo pussy faggots I would like to say go fuck yourself these songs arn't for you Cory taylor (lead vocals for SlipKnoT) has even stated himself how male emos are just suicidal teens who are confused about there sexuality and wear there sisters/gf pants (I'm paraphrasing). You emo assholes give us REAL MaGGoTs bad names. Oh and side note: All you fucktards who say SlipKnoT isn't real metal and that MaGGoTs don't know what real metal is please try to understand that you are retarted as I am living proof of your observation fail. I enjoy listening to bands such as Gojira, Gorgoroth, Mayhem, Dimmu Borgir, meshuggah, Behemoth, white chapel, children of bodom, burzum, ect.ect. And about how SlipKnoT isn't real metal. THE GENRE THEY ARE IN IS CALLED NU-METAL DUMB ASS. Metal is in the God damn Title of the genre.
MaGGoT: Hey do you like SlipKnoT?

Emo pussy faggot: Yeah.

MaGGoT: Oh really what's your favorite song?

emo pussy faggot: Dead memories because it totally gets me.

MaGGoT: Get the fuck out of here you sad sack of shit you give us real MaGGoTs bad names.

Emo pussy faggot: -cries and slits there wrist-

MaGGoT: Fucking poser

Metal head (not maggot): Your a poser too you like SlipKnoT.

MaGGoT: Why because there Nu-metal?

Metal head (not maggot): Yeah Nu-metal is a metal genre fail.

MaGGoT: Your a fucking dumb ass just because you don't like it dosn't mean it's wrong. It means you have a different taste in music and, are probobly a judgmental, bigoted, dumb shit who dosn't like it because your daddy told you anything you don't like is bad when he was fucking you up the ass when you were little.

Metal head (not MaGGoT): -thinks- Hmm... you may be right.

MaGGoT: Well now that we kind of see eye to eye, help me get rid of the dead emo kid before somebody finds the body.

9 grown men that wear cheezy halloween costumes and scream about how much they hate everything. they use the costumes to compensate for their lack of talent, and they use 3 drummers so each one only has to play one note at a time. they dont know how to play their guitars, so they just turn the distortion up high enough so nobody notices. the musical equivalent of a big budget hollywood horror movie that uses too much special effects and gore. their lyrics are mostly about pointless aggression towards everything, and for some reason, they seem to love satan and anything labeled "evil"
slipknot fan: dude, like, slipknot is like the fucking bomb, you fucking dork face! why do you hate them, huh, idiot loser? i hate you! go to hell!

me: im not quite sure why youre screaming at me, because all i told you that i dont like slipknot. i see their lyrics have rubbed off on you.

slipknot fan's mom: son, get in the mercedes, we need to get to nordstrom to buy you a polo shirt!
