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"
"Has anyone got the new SlipKnot album?"

SlipKnoT is a Nu-metal band. It consists of nine members. They have talent, despite what people may tell you. SlipKnoT is a very polarizing band because of number of members/what the do on stage/ect. ect. You either hate them for the most part, or you really like them. there fans are called MaGGoTs many people try to make the MaGGoTs feel bad because they call themselves MaGGoTs, but to all of them please note: We don't give a shit. Being a MaGGoT is a badge of honor to us. Also recently SlipKnoT has put out alot of pop songs i.e. dead memories and snuff to name two. Alot of emo pussy faggots like these song because they think it's cool. to said emo pussy faggots I would like to say go fuck yourself these songs arn't for you Cory taylor (lead vocals for SlipKnoT) has even stated himself how male emos are just suicidal teens who are confused about there sexuality and wear there sisters/gf pants (I'm paraphrasing). You emo assholes give us REAL MaGGoTs bad names. Oh and side note: All you fucktards who say SlipKnoT isn't real metal and that MaGGoTs don't know what real metal is please try to understand that you are retarted as I am living proof of your observation fail. I enjoy listening to bands such as Gojira, Gorgoroth, Mayhem, Dimmu Borgir, meshuggah, Behemoth, white chapel, children of bodom, burzum, ect.ect. And about how SlipKnoT isn't real metal. THE GENRE THEY ARE IN IS CALLED NU-METAL DUMB ASS. Metal is in the God damn Title of the genre.
MaGGoT: Hey do you like SlipKnoT?

Emo pussy faggot: Yeah.

MaGGoT: Oh really what's your favorite song?

emo pussy faggot: Dead memories because it totally gets me.

MaGGoT: Get the fuck out of here you sad sack of shit you give us real MaGGoTs bad names.

Emo pussy faggot: -cries and slits there wrist-

MaGGoT: Fucking poser

Metal head (not maggot): Your a poser too you like SlipKnoT.

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.

MaGGoT: Well now that we kind of see eye to eye, help me get rid of the dead emo kid before somebody finds the body.

1) Slip knot: A type of knot, the most common attach a line to an object, and tighten when tension is applied to the free end of the line. Also used for hanging the condemned in the middle ages.
2) Slipknot: A mediocre, nine-piece nu-metal band that has,thankfully, faded from the public spotlight. It's fairly common for pimply, angst-ridden, 'misunderstood' adolescents to be big fans.
Melodramatic teen: Like my face, my soul is (acne) scarred. I listen to slipknot to drown out the constant burden of everyday teenage life, and to find a common thread with my misery. No one understands the depth of my tortured soul. I'll give them a glance into my misery by hanging myself with a rope tied with a slipknot.

A 9-piece metal band from Iowa, famous for wearing masks and for their chaotic live performances. They call their fans 'maggots' and have recently (May 2004) released their 3rd album, which is seen as their best yet.
"'Vol.3...' is, quite simply, a masterpiece - and a massive raised middle digit to all the stumbling nu-metal no-marks that rode in on the band's coattails."

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.

A 9-piece Nu-Metal/Industrial band from Des Moines, Iowa. Often called "sellouts" and the like. I personally quite like them. They aren't my favourite band, Children of Bodom or Dimmu Borgir is, but hey.
Whatever people say, they don't suck. Joey is an amazing drummer and Corey is a fairly good vocalist, although his voice has deteriorated. Mick and James (No.s 6 and 7) the guitarists are also good. They aren't like your average nu-metal band who always play about five drop-D power chords every song. No. Listen to some of the solos on Vol. 3. They may not be the best, but they are good.

To the lovers: Slipknot are not death metal. If you want that, listen to Deicide or Cannibal Corpse. Nor are they the best band in the world. No band is, it's all down to opinion. Also, calm down and stop insulting other people's music... It's really annoying...

To the haters: Slipknot don't suck. They didn't sell out. They aren't about money either. They were all playing in local bands for years before they made it big with Slipknot.

Hater: Slipknot are sell-outs, posers and fags... (Note that they have no reason for saying this other that "'coz they are.")
