All of the band members have been involved with at least 2 or more other bands since the early 90's.
In my OPINION, they are a kick-ass band.
Your opinions may differ greatly.
Some of Slipknot's widely used phrases:
- People = Shit.
- Maggots. Their fans. It's not meant to offend.
- 742617000027. the first song on their self-titled album, and that number appears on all of their jumpsuits. I forgot how it originated.
Some may think that Slipknot creates a grotesque image.
Hm. I guess that's accurate enough.
They all wear masks.
They still make their own to this day.
Their masks may vary from album to album.
One of their members, Joey Jordison #1, drums, created a few of their logos, and he also came up with the word "maggot" for their fans.
Some people may think that Slipknot is just a mainsteamed band who stand up on stage in their masks, screaming out nothing with a bit of profanity.
Well, you know what?
If you ACTUALLY sit down to READ and decipher their lyrics, you'll find out that their lyrics are full of insightful meanings and they have a very wide-spread vocabulary.
Yes, I will admit it. They swear a lot. But what so-called 'nu metal' band doesn't? Hmm?
I personally think that this band does NOT get enough credit.
Like I mentioned previously, they have VERY insightful lyrics with deep meaning. But not only that.. their MUSIC is excellently written.
Their drummer, Joey Jordison #1, drums writes most of their actual music.
He's a very talented young man.
Ah, I have to add this about Joey..
I've read in MANY drummers' magazines and websites that Joey Jordison is one of the fastest and BEST drummers of all time.
So fuck you.
Anyway. Getting off-subject.
Slipknot. Should. Get. More. Credit.
So, you want it plain and simple?
Slipknot is a 'nu metal' fuck that band that consists of 9 members. The band originated in the early to mid 90's with about 5 original members. They're all from Des Moines, Iowa.

People = shit.
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
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...

MaGGoT: Why because there Nu-metal?
Metal head (not maggot): Yeah Nu-metal is a metal genre fail.
MaGGoT: Your a fucking dumb ass just because you don't like it dosn't mean it's wrong. It means you have a different taste in music and, are probobly a judgmental, bigoted, dumb shit who dosn't like it because your daddy told you anything you don't like is bad when he was fucking you up the ass when you were little.
Metal head (not MaGGoT): -thinks- Hmm... you may be right.
