Slipknot

Slipknot's mix of grinding, post-Korn alternative metal, Marilyn Manson-esque neo-shock rock, and rap-metal helped make them one of the most popular bands in the so-called nu-metal explosion of the late '90s. But even more helpful was their theatrical, attention-grabbing image: the band always performed in identical industrial jump suits and homemade Halloween masks, and added to its mysterious anonymity by adopting the numbers zero through eight as stage aliases. Add to that a lyrical preoccupation with darkness and nihilism, and an affectionately insulting name for their fans ("Maggots"), and Slipknot's blueprint for nu-metal success was set.

Slipknot were formed in late 1995 in the unlikely locale of Des Moines, IA; after some early personnel shifts, the nine-piece lineup settled around (in order from number zero to number eight): DJ Sid Wilson, drummer Joey Jordison, bassist Paul Gray, percussionist Chris Fehn, guitarist James Root, sampler/programmer Craig Jones, percussionist Shawn "Clown" Crahan, guitarist Mick Thompson, and lead vocalist Corey Taylor. The music scene in Des Moines wasn't much to speak of, and the band's big-time ambition was usually met with disbelief and ridicule, which provided the initial spark for its mostly anonymous stage visuals. On Halloween 1996, Slipknot self-released an album called Mate. Feed. Kill. Repeat., which began to build a buzz around the group once it found its way to several labels. It was picked up for distribution by the Nebraska-based -ismist label, and also caught the attention of Roadrunner Records, which signed Slipknot in 1997. Working with producer Ross Robinson, Slipknot recorded their official, self-titled debut album, which was released in 1999. They gradually built an audience through near-constant touring, working their way up to the summer Ozzfest package tour, which really expanded their audience. Their live shows were a much-discussed hit with metal fans, and the band performed with such energy that Crahan gashed his head open on his own drum kit twice that summer, requiring stitches both times. The tracks "Wait and Bleed" and "Spit It Out" got the band some airplay, but most of the buzz came from touring and word of mouth. Finally, in the spring of 2000, Slipknot was certified platinum; the first such album in Roadrunner's history.

The anticipation for Slipknot's follow-up was intense, and many industry observers predicted that it would debut at number one; however, faced with some stiff competition that week, the band's sophomore effort, Iowa, bowed at number three upon its release in 2001. More heavy touring followed, including another, more prominent slot on that summer's Ozzfest. After a long spell on the road, Slipknot took a break while the members worked on side projects. The band set up its own label, Maggot Recordings, and signed a band called Downthesun, whose lead singer had served as Crahan's drum technician. Wilson, meanwhile, began DJing solo under the name DJ Starscream, and Root and Thompson both worked on solo material. Drummer Jordison worked with a side group called the Rejects, where he'd actually served for quite some time as guitarist. Taylor, meanwhile, started a side band called Superego, and also contributed a solo song, "Bother," to the soundtrack of the 2002 blockbuster Spider-Man. That May, the band got some amusing press when some of its fans discovered the website of a British crocheting group also called "Slipknot," and flooded the members' in-boxes with excessively rude e-mails.

Guitarist Joey Jordison and Static-X guitarist Tripp Eisen teamed that summer for the Murderdolls project, while Taylor re-formed his old band Stone Sour and released an album. By the winter, Slipknot had still not reunited and Taylor wrote a commentary on the band's website stating that they had not spoken in months, and that they'd rather break up than become "the next Gwar." The statement sparked a quickly resolved mini-feud between Taylor and Gwar frontman Oderus Urungus. but it also sent many of the Maggots into a tailspin. By early 2003, Taylor had retracted his comments, and announced plans for a new Slipknot album. That August the entire squad decamped Iowa for L.A., where they began work on the new record with producer Rick Rubin. "Pulse of the Maggots" appeared in early 2004 as an exclusive download; it was followed by a full track listing for Vol. 3: The Subliminal Verses. Slipknot then embarked on a brief tour as a warm-up for their dates headlining Ozzfest that summer. (The group also debuted a fully redesigned third generation of their famous masks.) Subliminal Verses was released in May 2004. It peaked at number two on the Billboard 200, and the band toured steadily for the next year and a half in support. They released a two-disc live album in November 2005, followed by a slew of side projects (Taylor and Root formed Stone Sour, while Jordison sat in with Ministry and Korn) before releasing their fourth full-length album, All Hope Is Gone, in 2008. Slipknot made a number of festival appearances during summer of the following year, and also embarked on their All Hope Is Gone world tour. On May 24, 2010, the body of bassist Paul Gray was discovered by a maintenance worker in an Urbandale, IA, hotel room; he was 38 years old at the time of his death.

Two years after suffering the tragedy of losing Gray, the band released their first compilation. Spanning thirteen years of output, Antennas to Hell: The Best of Slipknot brought together the best studio cuts from Corey taylor and co., along with a selection of bonus material, including their full performance at 2009's Download Festival. ~ Steve Huey, Rovi

My s**t right here
F**k Yes!��
Just enjoy the music. I am 50 and have been to many hard rock/metal concenrts from mid 80s to present. Been listening since older cousin introduced me to hard rock in Uncle Ted and AC/DC in late 70s. But I am also clean cut, wear a coat and tie to work, and am a Christian. Just enjoy the music. Nothing is gained by arguing over minor issues.
Love
Awesome band c: love them
Amazing group of guys! I just want to go crazy when I listen to them!

"Thank You Tool" should be the title of Slipknot's next album. If it wasn't for the musical geniuses of that band paving the way of the audiences's ears, bands like Korn, Limp Biskit, and yes Slipknot, would be just another garage band.
That just released a new song and music video called The Negative One on their website.
Fake metal? What do you know about metal you have only one station called c**t
Fake metal for insecure 12-year-olds .

I just gotta say how stupid some of you seem. With the whole "u a p**sy go listen to justin bieber" and " this is little kid metal f**k u all." Shut the hell up. You sound like toddlers fighting over a Twinkie. Just listen to the music and shut up. And before any mouth breathers say anything stupid I know the irony of me posting this. It's just to get people to stop arguing over the stupidest things.

F**king awesome
@Chicane, I'm not a teenager, I'm 52, I don't wear a black trench coat, but I do have long hair and I definitely don't smoke meth, that's for losers like you. I've been listening to some form of metal since I was 24. To all the real metal people, there is no such thing. Like everything there are variations of metal, speed metal, death metal, heavy metal, etc. You are not a true metal head if you don't know this, so go suck your thumb and get the f?
Chicane if your you have that opinion why are you here if you don't like it then stay away from this kind music
I love them and I am a cop.... so ya.. good observation Chicane
Anyone who likes SlipCock should have a pair of screwdrivers gouge out their ears. Their fans are a bunch of long haired, meth smoking, zit faced kids that wear black tench coats .
Will always be the best and is the reason I started listening to metal. 666 maggots
SECOND TO NONE
best slipknot song is DUALITY
Love this band
But hey, that's your choice
Everyone has their own opinion, so go ahead and express it. But if it's bashing the band then everyone will think you're a dick. :/
