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?
1) Slip knot: A type of knot, the most common attach a line to an object, and tighten when tension is applied to the free end of the line. Also used for hanging the condemned in the middle ages.
2) Slipknot: A mediocre, nine-piece nu-metal band that has,thankfully, faded from the public spotlight. It's fairly common for pimply, angst-ridden, 'misunderstood' adolescents to be big fans.
Melodramatic teen: Like my face, my soul is (acne) scarred. I listen to slipknot to drown out the constant burden of everyday teenage life, and to find a common thread with my misery. No one understands the depth of my tortured soul. I'll give them a glance into my misery by hanging myself with a rope tied with a slipknot.
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
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
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.
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.
It's incredibly great that a lot of definitions about this band include the words "suck" "shit" "worthless" etc... i bet if one of you read a bad definition about Jay-Z or AFI, you'd probably go cut your wrists and cry to your mommy.
Anyway... Slipknot's a 9-man band from Des Moines, Iowa. While the general idea is that Slipknot is nu-metal/rapcore/metal/etc...and while it's true they are those things, they are also something else. They're a band that has come a long way from their roots (if any of you listened to Mate. Feed. Kill. Repeat. you'll know what i mean...) and has become an extremely talented band. I'm not sure what happened to the original singer, but the current singer, Corey Taylor, was recruited to sing for the band after the original vocalist departed from the band, or got kicked out, or something. In any case, I don't particularly give a shit what you boyband-lovers have to say about them...Corey has an amazing set of vocal cords, being able to go from the hard, face-ripping, mother-sodomizing growls of "The Heretic Anthem" heard on Iowa to the melodic, soul-wrenching singing of "Snuff" from their new cd, All Hope Is Gone. James and Mick play guitar like they'll die if they stop, and Joey is one of the best drummers i personally have ever heard.
Yes, Corey does use a lot of profanity. Profanity's a good way to express frustration, anger, hopelessness, and other emotions...which is the general theme running through their songs. Slipknot is excellent t...
