Plastic and worthless 9 member nu metal band from Des Moines, Iowa. Completely fake, followed almost entirely by a mainstream audience of stupid mallgoths that thing they are hardcore. Known for wearing masks on stage, an idea stolen from GWAR and Mushroomhead in an attempt to look as scary as possible, and they end up looking dumb. Known for an "energetic" live performance which consists entirely of more than 9 people on stage, only 3 playing, a fog machine or two, and a couple of people running around beating on random instruments like retards. They sing really badly written songs about depression that are sure to be up any emo kid's alley. Also well known for their drummer Joey Jordinson, who likes to go backstage after shows filled with 12 year olds and screw the girls, potentially the most overrated drummer ever. Only 3-5 members of the band ever do anything, and their sound could easily be pulled off by just 3 or 4. And finally, as Roadrunner Records (worst company ever) biggest bitches, they allow Roadrunner to control them entirely, producing and owning all their own music, giving them no say in how their band is run.
Slipknot is the worst band ever in my opinion, down there with Korn, Mudvayne, Otep, Fall Out Boy, Hawthorne Heights, hell really any other nu metal and emo band.

1. A type of knot used for fastening rope to poles with the ability to tighten and loosen with a slight tug

2. Some crappy nu metal band that goths worship. Cover everything with pentagrams and wear masks because they're too 'hardcore' to show their faces. Part of the nu metal era. See also shitty nu metal bands such as Korn and Linkin Park
1. I tied the tent to the stake with a traditional slip knot.

2. Goth: 'SLIPKNOT RULEZ!!!'
Me: 'Kid, either hang yourself by your bondage pants or listen music worth listening to, like the Locust or Daughters'

A strong sounding, strong meaning band. Best drummer in the world, amazing guitarists, and nine members whom all do an amazing, and important job in this masterpiece I call a band.

With amazing abilities in both screaming and singing, their lead vocalist rocks his listeners to the core with meaningful, and seldom ventured lyrics.

A drummer who could beat anyone in a competition (Yes folks, even Blinks Travis... are you kidding me?) Joey is one truly amazing percussionist.

The other seven members of this masterpiece are just as talented, and deserve all the credit in the world for being an integral part to an amazing band.

What is Slipknot? Simply the best band since Black Sabbath, since Slayer.
Slipknot is Slipknot... there's nothing else to it.

also Known as TonKpilS

Possibly one of the most undefinable Metal Bands of its time

A Band of 9 Different people specializing in Different Edges of Music

Utilizing 2 DJs 2 Special Percussionists, 1 Bassist, 2 Guitarists, 1 Drummer, and 1 Lead Singer they form the 2nd most talked about concerts world wide. Although only releasing 4 albums total and splitting up after 8 years (still approx. 1 yr left) they will go down in history as legends and will be missed.

SlipKnoT is commonly defined as Thrash Metal, Hate Metal, or Death Metal. Although they are not gothic, they do not create songs by how they feel they create songs that sound good and will ultimately sound the best
SlipKnoT fan: SLIPKNOT 0WNZ J00 F00!

Gimmick pop band with no talent that capitalizes off of conformist teens that enjoy crappy music.
Goth-wannabees listen to Slipknot.

Simply the best metal band ever!!!!!
I said to my friends that I liked slipknot and I was laughed upon by them for like metal in the first place but of all metal slipknot. My friends are all a lot more intelligent than I am and listen to intelligent music like Experimental Darkambient, Trance Music and Noise. I'm a total moron but at least I like superficial simple metal like slipknot which is the best.
