Question Slipknot Thread

I'm curious to hear about people's views on Slipknot.
If you like them:
What about them is appealing to you?
When did you first hear them?
What was your first impression, and did that change?

If you don't like them:
Why? and please no retarded comments like "hurr durr slipknot is gay maggot faggots they cut themselves derp"

Cheers

While I'll assume there is some sarcasm intended, there is a good point to come out of it. Slipknot do appeal to a younger audience, and I'm sure they are an introduction to metal to for a lot of young people, and that's a good thing.

They were my first show back when I was a sophomore in high school. I think they were promoting their 3rd album at the time. I have big respect for the band. I can't say I've listened to them in a while though.

I love slipknot. I probably wouldn't play guitar if I hadn't heard Iowa (and the Korn records)
Incredible live band!

I like 'em. Seen them a few times live, put on an amazing show. Got all their albums and some tracks are definitely a bit wank but they have plenty of strong songs.

I first heard them when they released their self titled album. At the time it was something different and was way more intense than the "other" mainstream "nu-metal" bands like Korn, Limp Bizkit, Coal Chamber etc... to me they sounded genuinely ....ed off about stuff which lent the music more credibility.

Iowa changed my entire perception of the word anger.

Not such a huge fan these days, but they are more of an "old faithful", I much preferred Stone Sour's latest release.

I used to like them. Imo, Iowa is their best hands down. The self titled was ok, but everything after Iowa went downhill. I really didn't like vol. 3 at all, since it became a lot more poppy. I HATED all hope is gone.
I always thought it was funny that they rant about so much .... and image, yet again, most people know them as "that metal band with the masks".

I feel like SlipKnot get a lot of stick for what is essentially nothing to do with them. For example, a lot of their fans are obnoxious douchewagons, and for some reason people often think that this makes Slipknot a bad band. In no way is this true.
Now, I love SlipKnot. I really do. I feel that IOWA is one of the angriest albums ever produced and that their lyrics (whilst admittedly cliche and somewhat cheesy at parts) actually had some thought put into them. Joey gets far too much credit, but he is a competent drummer who fits the band dynamic, and Jim/Mick write some pretty awesome riffs.

This is all aside from the fact that Corey is an absolutely insanely awesome vocalist.

Overall verdict? I think they're overrated by some, vastly underrated by lots of people who think they're just another kiddy-metal band, and one of my top 20 bands of all time.

All this aside though, seriously? Maggots? I don't see why any group of band-fans require a name for themselves, but even if they did for some reason, maggots? I just don't get it. However, I guess it's just different strokes.

They were my favorite band for a good 1-2 years after I got burned out on Disturbed. (Haters gonna hate, but Disturbed is a good band too.)

I still listen to Subliminal Verses: Vol. 3 quite a bit, its a great album. And Three Nil intro is heavy as .....

Their self-titled captures an energy and intensity I've rarely heard matched.

This is a quote from Clown:
"The reason we call them maggots is because right now they're in a world of other people's ...., but eventually they will become flies, and at least flies get to fly away and choose which .... they digest, and sometimes .... on their enemies food."

Only album by them I enjoyed at all was Mate.Feed.Kill.Repeat...

Mainly because Corey wasn't in the band.

So you liked them when they had a carbon copy of Max Cavalera but when they get the greatest frontman of this century (yes, without a doubt) you stop liking them? That sounds like someone trying to be indie.

The last good album they put out, in my opinion, was Subliminal verses, after that, I stopped caring about them. Everything up to then was great, but that SHYKOSHOSHUH! song and the cd it's on is trash.

EDIT: The post above mine is retarded. Here's hoping OP gets banned.

I really like Slipknot, I got more into them recently, even though my brother listenes to them for years.
I think their vocalist is absolutely amazing, they have great guitarists whose tone actually doesn't suck lol, and Joey is a fantastic drummer!
My favorite album is probably the self titled one, but of my fav songs has to be Sulfur.
I really like their "stage look" the masks look cool, and they seem to have really energetic live shows.
