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?

An amazing band from Des Moines, Iowa. They successfully combined rap and metal in their first album "Slipknot", made it heavier in "Iowa", and changed it to more alternative metal in "Vol. 3: (The Subliminal Verses)" and "All Hope Is Gone". They each wear masks to express their personality and to show it is about the music, not the looks. And no, they are not Satanic. They only used Satanic imagery in "Iowa" era concerts for marketing and shock value. Their bassist died back in May, so RIP. This is their lineup:

#0 Sid Wilson - turntables
#1 Joey Jordison - drums
#2 Paul Gray - bass (RIP)
#3 Chris Fehn - custom percussion, backing vocals
#4 Jim Root - guitar
#5 Craig "133" Jones - samples, media
#6 Shawn "Clown" Crahan - custom percussion, backing vocals
#7 Mick Thomson - guitar
#8 Corey Taylor - vocals
Slipknot are a great metal band!

a kick ass band with nine guy. their music is great and they put on an amazing live show. their best songs in my opinion are
1. spit it out
2. my plague
3. liberate
4. people=shit
5. everything ends
if you dont like them thats fine, but people who are saying if you wear a hot topic t shirt your not a real maggot, stfu. the real non-maggots are the people who you ask "do you like slipknot?" and they say yes or w/e and they only know them from guitar hero. those are the real tools.
slipknot is an amazing band and if you dont like them you can kiss my ass

Slipknot is without doubt ONE of the greatest bands ever. It is composed of 9 very talented musicians. and 9 is not to many, so dont hate them just cause they have 9 members, they dont use all of them in MOST songs as a matter of fact. the members are ,
0. Sid Wilson (D.j)
1. Joey Jordison (drummer)
2. Paul Grey (Bassist)
3. Chris Fehn (Percussion)
4. James Root (Rythm Guitar)
5. Craig Jones (Samples)
6. Shawn Crahan A.K.A Clown (Percussion)
7. Mick Thompson (Leag Guitar)
8. Corey Taylor (Vocals)

As for you asshole, who says that slipknot fans need to simmer down a bit and listen to all genres of metal, I HAVE and i like them ALL, but i am most satisfied with slipknot. and you ppl who say that slipknot is nu-metal, your completely wrong cause they have no genre, they say it themselves that it is a mixture of metel/rock genres. On behalf of the beleifs of some retards (who are wrong), Slipknot is not satanic. If you do beleive they are, give me all you got! That is all i have to say. GREATEST DAMN BAND EVER!
Slipknot kicks teh shit out of slayer!!!

a bunch of old retarded men making money off rebellious teenagers, who have hit puberty and have decided to go 'hardcore'. Slipknot wear masks to cover up te fact that they are ugly old men whereas their fans believe it to be just a part of 'real music'. nu-metal is shit and slipknot know it and are laughing all the way to the bank.
bob: lets make some money
bill: yeah! how?
bob: lets do a slipknot and dress up
bill: good idea, all the impressionable kids will fall for it for sure!
bob: *evil laugh*

A band consisting of older men from iowa which can be deffined from the perspectives of magots (devoted slipknot fans who believe the band is the only thing in the world.)
the perspective of a hater (the group of people who are convinced that slipknot is a group a talentless assholes.)
and also from the perspective of a smart person. ( a normal person/ musician who can see and appreciate the success of a band who preforms because they love to.)

from the perspective of a magot: Slipknot is the fucking best. They are so awesome and so cool! They have he greatest screamer ever, the greatest drummer ever, and the greatest guitqrist ever!

From the perspective of a hater: A talentless band consisting of a bunch of old dried up fags with a fan base made of angsty, angry, dumb asses with no real musical taste.

From the perspective of a smart person: slipknot is a nu-metal band that could be defined in other genres. They are decently talented, very agrresive, and very popular band with a very talented drummer and a good vocalist. But hes no Mitch Lucker or anything.

From the
Slipknot has a various opinions on their music.
