For all the people who are like “screw slipknot and listen to children of bodom.” Let me TELL YOU SOMETHING! C.O.B’s lead singer sounds like a fag, who can’t sing on his life, who makes a attempt to scream. And why blame slipknot because they use percussion. Look at C.O.B with a stupid little keyboard trying to mimic them. How the hell is C.O.D is considered original metal? They sound like gothic freaks. Slipknot actually came from freakin America! Their singer will never sound like Corey, and Corey can sing and scream, and not just do a whiny scream through a whole song. Truth is people don’t want to listen to the same slayer, and Metallica songs over and over again, they are far more repetitive than slipknot. And of course some people have a life and don’t want to listen to black metal devil crap. It doesn’t matter if Slipknot is metal or nu-metal, they are Slipknot and will continue further down the line than those old death metal bands.
1. Slipknot isn’t death metal, black metal, etc. Or any type of stereotype metal

2. Slipknot is TALENTED! Let’s have you try and pull of their sound, 9 members doesn’t mean they can’t play, you try to coordinate this many people at a time for a song, let alone one song.

3. The masks aren’t for trying to pull off an ego; it is a form of expression for each member of the band.

4. They aren’t Satanists, and if you want more information, then look it up

5. They don’t give out an emo message trying to make you hurt yourself, the music’s purpose is to empower you

6. If you dislike them, then fine, but at least be respectful

7. If you think they suck since they are mainstream and too popular, let’s see how worthy all your little underground bands are. I’m sure they won’t ever reach at many concerts, fans, or credit as much as Slipknot has.

a "band" full of retards in ugly masks, that make "music" that all sounds the samei.e lame and inspires losers from middle school and beyond to buy pants that are 167186374 times too big for them from hottopic and to stop washing their hair. they fall into the same category as other pathetic bands such as ICP, korn, the cotton mouth kings, GWAR....

face it losers, your trend has died.

Only the best band in the world, this coming from the music maestro. I listen to all genres of music: classical, hard rock, any type of metal, rap, punk, you name it most likely I listen to it. I basically like Slipknot for the lyrics, and because it has a pretty good sound to it. All of you people who think that I am just a poser, can kiss my little, white, loner goth ass!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
Guy 1: Hey what do you think about the band Slipknot?
Guy 2: It's only the best Muther Fuckin band in all of eternity!!!!

Slipknot is an heavy metal band from Des Moines, Iowa. With nine band members, Slipknot has toured all over the world and has 3 major albums. Slipknot is most known for their masks and jumpsuits that they wear onstage and in their music videos. Some of their major songs are Duality, Wait and Bleed, and Before I Forget. Slipknot loves all their fans and affectionately call them maggots. They even did a video shoot for Duality with over 400 fans from the midwest. One kid even came to Iowa all the way from England to be in the video. We were there for 13 hours in rain and 40 degree weather wearing t-shirts. Slipknot is loved by many many people.
Slipknot is the best heavy metal band in the whole world.

Very loud, very fast band. Fastest drummer I've ever heard, and the rest of the band keeps up and in time. Not the most complicated or artisticly impressive music, but fuck it - it's metal... what do you want?

In the rare moments the vocalist sings, his voice is pretty decent. 90% of the time, he belches out words in a rapid-fire growl-scream that makes your throat hurt to listen to. Effective for the lyrics and crowd Slipknot plays to.

If one is to believe that Slipknot's lyrics represent the true feelings of the band, these guys wake up more pissed off and hateful than any remotely sane human should ever be in the worst situation imaginable. Therefore, it is safe to say they are a marketing creation geared toward angst-ridden 15-23 year old white males. On drugs. A lot of drugs. A lot of hard, powerful, brain-raping drugs. (The band - not necessarily the target market.)

Technically impressive, artistically passable, lyrically horrid to the point of amusement.

Fear anyone who belives Slipknot's lyrics were written just for him out of pages from his life. The average disaffected adolescent white boy is destructive enough - if he rallies around Slipknot lyrics, you've got another Timothy McVeigh just waiting to happen.
And guys... what's the deal with the masks?

A gimmicky nu-metal band fomrmed by nine no-talent fucks in Iowa. They have the shitiest costumes(compared to GWAR and mushroomhead). Their masks are supposedly an "extension of their personalities", but i dunno how a mask with bandages has to do with personalities( im sure all of them claim they have pain locked up inside). People who listen to them think they are the hardest mofos in the universe.
Why dont you listen to satyricon or norma jean?
