Someone probably gave it to him. I have a buddy of mine who was with SF over in Afghanistan and he asked for some clothes for some of the locals they were working with. Among other things, I sent him a bunch of shirts from my band. He sent back a picture of him with them and all of these Afghanis wearing band shirts and toting AK's. Very cool.

Slipknot RAWKSseriously. Like their music or not they are a VERY talented band. What's funny is I know people that hate slipknot, and LOVE stonesour. I let em live in their fantasy world before busting em out

Time to fire up Limewire and download some samples.


What are some of their best songs?

wait and bleed is their best song. There are a few versions of it, the faster the better.

Everything Ends
You are wrong, fucked, and overrated
I think I’m gonna be sick and it’s your fault
This is the end of everything
You are the end of everything
I haven’t slept since I woke up
And found my whole life was a lie, motherfucker
This is the end of everything
You are the end of everything

Shallow skin, I can paint with pain
I mark the trails on my arms with your disdain
Everyday it’s the same - I love, you hate
But I guess I don’t care any more...
Fix my problems with the blade
While my eyes turn from blue to gray
God, the worst thing happened to me today
But I guess I don’t care anymore...

You are wrong, fucked, and overrated
I think I’m gonna be sick and it’s your fault
This is the end of everything
You are the end of everything
I haven’t slept since I woke up
And found my whole life was a lie, motherfucker
This is the end of everything
You are the end of everything

My flaws are the only thing left that’s pure
Can’t really live, can’t really endure
Everything I see reminds me of her
God I wish I didn’t care anymore
The more I touch, the less I feel
I’m lying to myself that it’s not real
Why is everybody making such a big fucking deal?
I’m never gonna care anymore

What the hell am I doing?
Is there anyone left in my life?
What the fuck was I thinking?
Anybody want to tell me I’m fine?
Where the hell am I going?
Do I even need a reason to hide?
I am only betrayed
I am only conditioned to die



and:
Eyeless
Disasterpiece
Duality
Th­ose are the ones that come to mind first.

True, same crap where people love A Perfect Circle but not Tool and claim their fans just because Maynard James Keenan is the singer. Assclowns.

BTW, seen Slipknot bout 4 times in under a year in support of their first album, which went platinum without any radio or MTV support

My little brother listens to volume 3. He is 7. I dont let him listen to slipkot, or Iowa though. I dont think he would understand what they are saying anyway, but.....

Absolute garbage band.

Talentless

Tasteless

De­ath thrash

Absolutely, this is "music" for the mentally challenged.


Not worth a bowl full of green poop...


I can go on .... but that is my opinion.... and that of a large percentage of the population.

+1 on letting kids listen. I mean seriously, at least its not rap.
Link Posted: 1/6/2006 2:30:02 PM EDT
I'd love to hear what some of you haters subject their ears to.

And don't say country, cuz that's just sad. Half of those clowns don't even write their own songs, and the half that do just rehash the girl-left-me thing or the just-get-drunk-and-hoot-and-holler thing. It's tolerable but not talented by any means.

No problem that somebody likes that excrement...

Usually it is listened to by Jr High boys and girls that are abused at home, like to cut themselves, wear black make-up, and look "goth".

My sister teaches these kids on a daily basis and this is their "fan" base.


If you think it sounds "badass", or technically challenging.... you need help.


I consider it to be noise made for farm animals and mutants.


Now, I like Metal.

Old School.

Not this excrement they play at today.

You couldnt tell one band from another if you tried to.

Every hahaha "singer" just iron bullfrogs into the mike or screetches like his nuts are in a vice.

I am glad you find joy in it.

It is just terribly hackneyed garbage.



Dram out

Oh yeah, metal huh, Dee Snider is SO MUCH more talented than Slipknot. Just writing music for a band that big takes more talent than any 80's metal BAND had. Not to mention, at least they know that spandex has never been , nor will it ever be cool.

Haha, I swear just as I was about to hit "submit" Duality came on.

What?
I like their music, but I'll be the first to admit-
"Talent" and "Liking" are completely unrelated. I dont LIKE nascar, but I'll admit it may take a little more talent than the average driver has to do that. I dont LIKE rap music, but I've heard some guys I know think up rhymes off the top of their heads, that would put "rappers" to shame.

I like Slipknot, but they aren't what I would call a "Technical" or "Talented" band.

Stonesour is like Slipknot Lite, just one calorie. More like Corey Taylor's attempt at stealing Nickelback's fan base.
