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

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"

A band that is apparently "Nu-metal"
I myself do not particularly care for them. I mean, you know, if you do that's totally fine. Everybody has an opinion. I just like having melody in my music, you know? I also like singers who actually sing instead of grunt. And guitar and bass riffs that haven't been unnecessarily distorted. I mean distortion is cool to a point. But when it's all you do with your riffs, it's just like: "why would you need to do that?"
You know? And i understand that they never asked to be very successful. I get that. I just don't see why they are so successful is all. But like I said, if you like them, that's fine. Be yourself. Maybe you can recommend some of their better songs to anybody who says they suck. I'm sure I've overlooked some of their better stuff. I apologize for any anger my possible ignorance has caused.
Guy 1:I love Slipknot!!!

Guy 2: That's fine. I think they could be a lot better, myself. I mean they have talent, sure, I just don't think that it's being put to good use. But then again, I suppose there are lots of different kinds of music out there, each with it's own fanbase.

Guy 1:Yeah, I suppose I see where you're coming from. I just like fast-paced, loud, kind of "darkish" sounding music.

Guy 2: And there's nothing wrong with that. We all have our own tastes.

Guy 1: Well, thank you for being so open minded.

Guy 2: No problem.

Guy 1:...

Guy 2:...

Guy 1:...

Guy 2:...rap sucks.

Guy 1: Oh, god yes, I hate rap.

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--

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 "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.
