An amazing band from Des Moines, Iowa. They successfully combined rap and metal in their first album "Slipknot", made it heavier in "Iowa", and changed it to more alternative metal in "Vol. 3: (The Subliminal Verses)" and "All Hope Is Gone". They each wear masks to express their personality and to show it is about the music, not the looks. And no, they are not Satanic. They only used Satanic imagery in "Iowa" era concerts for marketing and shock value. Their bassist died back in May, so RIP. This is their lineup:

#0 Sid Wilson - turntables
#1 Joey Jordison - drums
#2 Paul Gray - bass (RIP)
#3 Chris Fehn - custom percussion, backing vocals
#4 Jim Root - guitar
#5 Craig "133" Jones - samples, media
#6 Shawn "Clown" Crahan - custom percussion, backing vocals
#7 Mick Thomson - guitar
#8 Corey Taylor - vocals

a kick ass band with nine guy. their music is great and they put on an amazing live show. their best songs in my opinion are
1. spit it out
2. my plague
3. liberate
4. people=shit
5. everything ends
if you dont like them thats fine, but people who are saying if you wear a hot topic t shirt your not a real maggot, stfu. the real non-maggots are the people who you ask "do you like slipknot?" and they say yes or w/e and they only know them from guitar hero. those are the real tools.
slipknot is an amazing band and if you dont like them you can kiss my ass

a bunch of old retarded men making money off rebellious teenagers, who have hit puberty and have decided to go 'hardcore'. Slipknot wear masks to cover up te fact that they are ugly old men whereas their fans believe it to be just a part of 'real music'. nu-metal is shit and slipknot know it and are laughing all the way to the bank.
bob: lets make some money
bill: yeah! how?
bob: lets do a slipknot and dress up
bill: good idea, all the impressionable kids will fall for it for sure!
bob: *evil laugh*

A band consisting of older men from iowa which can be deffined from the perspectives of magots (devoted slipknot fans who believe the band is the only thing in the world.)
the perspective of a hater (the group of people who are convinced that slipknot is a group a talentless assholes.)
and also from the perspective of a smart person. ( a normal person/ musician who can see and appreciate the success of a band who preforms because they love to.)

from the perspective of a magot: Slipknot is the fucking best. They are so awesome and so cool! They have he greatest screamer ever, the greatest drummer ever, and the greatest guitqrist ever!

From the perspective of a hater: A talentless band consisting of a bunch of old dried up fags with a fan base made of angsty, angry, dumb asses with no real musical taste.

From the perspective of a smart person: slipknot is a nu-metal band that could be defined in other genres. They are decently talented, very agrresive, and very popular band with a very talented drummer and a good vocalist. But hes no Mitch Lucker or anything.

From the
Slipknot has a various opinions on their music.

Slipknot is 9 piece band from Des Moines, Iowa. "True " or "kvlt" metalheads will call Slipknot 'false metal/emo/goth/etc'. I just call them a metal band. Before anyone starts calling me a 'poseur', at least hear me out. You either love them or hate but don't call them shit if you've never listened to them. At least respect Slipknot. To "true" metalheads: Yes i know Slayer, old Metallica, Pantera, Lamb of God, etc.(you get the idea) are awesome and Slipknot can't compare to them,it doesn't give you the right to call them shit and call others poseurs only because they listen to Slipknot without knowing what other bands they listen to. Yes i know there are a lot of 13 yr olds that listen to Slipknot and say their the heaviest band in the world. I've heard more Pantera and Lamb of Godon the radio than i've heard Slipknot. I only hear Slipknot when a person calls in and requests it. Slipknot didn't steal the mask idea from Mushroomhead. Mushroomhead paints their faces. Slipknot wears masks. How people came up with this idea is beyond me. To all the poseurs out there: Slipknot an awesome band, but you guys are making us look like idiots. Slipknot is not black metal, death metal, or thrash/speed metal. Slipknot is not the heaviest band in the world, so get a fucking life!. To all maggots and metalheads(i.e. not poseurs who only like them cause it pisses your fucking parents off): We should all be out there after the the members of Limp Dickshit, i mean Limp Bizkit, so we can kill them for making shit that some idiot decided to call 'music'(i'm using the term 'music' loosly). Especially that retarded asswipe Fred Durst.

Get a life and try a different genre of metal. You never know, you might actually like it.
MMFCL and stay (SIC) fuckers.
*posur*Lik whatcha you listnin' to?
*me* Slipknot, Slayer, Child-*gets cut-off*
*me**kicks poseur in face a couple times* Go listen to some Deicide or Dying Fetus then come back and see if you can still say that.*walks off*

*stereotypical metalhead*what're you listening to?
*me*Children of Bodom, Dying Fetus, ICP, Slipknot,-
*stereotypical metalhead**completely ignores the other bands I said*SLIPKNOT SUCKS!! THEY'RE SHITTY FASLE METAL!!!YOU'RE JUST ANOTHER POSEUR!!!
*me*Don't spew diarrhea of the mouth without ever listening to the band.*puts Gemetria (the Killing Name) on*
*stereotypical metalhead*Hey that's not too bad. Who is that?
*stereotypical metalhead*Really? They're not as bad as I thought. Still not my style though.
*me*Told you.
