Okay, most of you guys are posting opinions. How about a real definition for once?
Genre: They don't have one. They don't like to be slapped with a label and they definitely don't like to be judged. Most of you guys still do this, though.
Religion: Unknown. Some people may believe Satanists but this is not true. They do that stuff just for shock.

Random Facts: The song 'Purity' is about a teenager named Purity Knight who was stalked and eventually kidnapped by a man. This man sent clues to the cops daring them to find her. And in the end, he buried her alive and suffocated underground. For more details, go to Crimescene.....Corey used to work in a porn shop in Des Moines. "People would look at me like I was a freak, but they were the ones buying in the porn shop at four in the morning. Straight looking people I'd know would come to the register with 14-inch dildos and then they'd recognise me sitting there, and I'd be like, 'Like any lotions or lubes with that?'. But I didn't want anyone to feel dirty in the shop - because people are made to feel dirty every day of their lives, and that's bullshit"
Singles: Duality, Wait And Bleed, Vermillion, Vermillion Part 2, Spit It Out, The Namele...
A very good Nu-Metal band with 9 guys who go crazy at live shows. They are from Iowa, and have 4 CDs out. They where featured in Ozzfest this year, and the will kill Fread Durst, the bitch from Limp Shit.
Look, Slipknot is kicking Fread's ass.
A "gimmick" band that has outlived it's 15 minutes of fame. The band members openly admit that they are not real musicians, and that they are nothing more than travelling clowns in jumpsuits. 90 percent of slipknot lyrics consist of the word "fuck". Slipknot fans are stupid.
Latest slipknot lyrics: "fuckety-fuck fuck this and fuck that, fuckety fuckety fuck". Fuck.
Arguably the most mallcore
pseudo-metal (not nu, children, because that implies mainstream metal, whereas Slipknot is rock) band on the planet. Essentially talentless, this Iowa-based hard rock band incorporates a NEW N XTREME(!!1) approach to music by consisting of an unconventional 9 members, attempting to cover up their all-around mediocrity. The instrumentals are typically poorly done but blended well with all the rest, the drumming being as weak as the lyrics, and Corey (the vocalist) can often be heard panting in between shouts due to his dismal lack of physical fitness. On the topic of genres, Slipknot is often incorrectly labeled a metal band because their instrumentals and vocals do not resemble that of Tom Petty, and their mask gimmick was stolen from GWAR
, a joke metal band that really isn't that bad. Synonymous with "poser", "mallgoth", "faggotry" and a number of other unsavory words that are more or less implied.
Chris to friend: Yeah, I just pre-ordered a copy of Aes Dana - Formors from Oaken Shield.
Friend: The shipping on that's a bitch. Goddamned intercontinental...
Chris: *Nods head* It's worth it though. They're a fucking amazing black metal ba--
Random maggot: OMGDUDE SLIPKNOT IS THE BEST DEATH METAL BAND EVER YOU PUSSY LISTEN TO THEM INSTEAD
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.
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...
A decent band from iowa. You either love them or hate them.
Most people class there as Nu-Metal but id class it as a mix between Nu metal, Rap metal and industrial metal
SLipknot...not the best band in the world but much better than some of the shit around today...liek Linkin Park for example
