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, which was later revealed to have been the result of an accidental drug overdose. The band decided to carry on without him, saying it was what he would have wanted.

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. In 2013 Slipknot started work on what was to become their fifth studio album. During the recording process, it was revealed that drummer Joey Jordison had left the band, in murky circumstances which were widely held to be acrimonious, and that the band had recruited a new rhythm section. Both drummer and bassist were still anonymous at the time of the album's release, but were rumored to be, respectively, Jay Weinberg, formerly of Against Me, and Alessandro Venturella, formerly of Cry for Silence. Titled .5: The Gray Chapter in honor of their fallen bandmate, the album was slated for release in October 2014. Marking a return to a more raw, brutal, dissonant sound reminiscent of their earlier work, it was promoted with the singles "The Negative One" and "The Devil in I," which featured music videos directed by Shawn Crahan. ~ Steve Huey, Rovi

Track List: The Negative One (Single)


Another number that isn't equal to any of you!!!!!!! BLISTER EXISTS
My favorites are Duality and Psychosocial
Was @ Glen Helen Blockbuster Pavillion @ Ozzfest 1999 in San Bernadeno, CA and ran with 70,000+ at night in huge lawn-area pits where crazies started fires in the middle of the pits with common trash and as we moshed, we jumped over/through the fires- what a day.
"Before I forget!"
This is the song that got me into drumming.
You guys are awesome
Lol love your devil in I song!!!!!
Vermillion reminds me of all my exes. Same with Killpop, and Gehenna. Also Dead Memories and Snuff.
Nicko b**ch you are a b**ch dont f**k about slipnkot you dont know what metal is

Primal roar in the 21st century...UG G H
Lol. But I do love slipknot so much
13 huh? No wonder your father bangs you. Your a hairless little b**tard who's only purpose is to used like a punching bag to take aggression out on.
This band is about as relevant as the crap stains in Brittons drawers
I'm only 13
Nicko just because your father uses you like a girl doesn't mean you have to pick on girls. If you could read you'd see that she's only 14. Does that make you feel big and strong? You must be so lonely. When you feel down and think that you have nothing in your life, just remember that you'll always have your insecurities .
Brittney Davis = hypocrite . Slipknot is a bunch of mainstream sellouts. They suck a stone sour too. Fans of this band should be thrown in a 55 gallon barrel and s**t on
when you see them in concert you've seen them. I was a big fan now I'm just a fan
Nicko does your mother even know who your father is? There can't be many of your relatives in the trailer park willing to throw the toothless hag a bang. I'm sure your eyes are uneven from generations of inbreeding., but look hard in the mirror and try to figure out which junkie your resemble.
I miss Paul too. I seen slipknot twice b4 he died. I cant wait to see them at the Carolina Rebellion. They rock!
Man I miss paul

Also did I use enough periods for you ?
Nicko252008 stop talking s**t man. Ok it's not f**king cool. It doesn't make you look cool ok sweetie. Make sure you know who your f**king talking to before you go and run your little b**ch a** mouth.
Britton is a girls name . If your name is Britton and you're a dude then you must be a trash talking , ️sissy , gay boy with morons for parents. Or you're transgender
Awww did I hurt your feelings jtmorriss? Suck it up nancy. Steve Harris writes all the music and has been killing it for 20+ years without being a punk a** junkie. So go huff some gasoline then set your self on fire. That way your family can have some heat and a hot meal in your broke down trailor.

How about you get the f**k out little girl. You're obviously not welcome. Don't f**k with slipknot fans, and go listen to taylor swift or bruno mars or whatever overrated artist you listen to. I know your a troll but seriously?! You need a life nicko
How about using some commas and periods you brainless moron
Nicko's just a slimy brainless little piece if shite who goes around dissing good bands because of his major inferiority complex that he has on many different levels & for many different reasons to numerous to list here. Slipknot & other similar bands are just to hard for him so we just need to encourage him to return to listening to his Mickey Mouse club stuff so that he doesn't get scared anymore!
