People = Shit

Anyone else here got slipknot's new album "Iowa"? I think it rules, no filler just all great, no wonder it took so long to come out. The best track has to be either "People = Shit" or "Everything Ends"

Who's name does God use in vain?

    I'm not a fan of slipknot.

    The first album has some good tracks, I can't remember the names though. Scissors and track 9 i think.

    But, it's the whole wearing masks and stuff. It's just silly and it makes me not want to like them.

    And when I see kids with 'people=shit' hoodies on, carrying their mums shopping, it makes me like them even less.

    I was made for a better world.

    Hmmm, i would say slipnot suck, even though they do, im just no into them. Thry are totally comecialised, i bet you will be able to buy slipknot dolls soon.

    I agree about the hoodies thing, they just suck, if i see one more greenday dookie or nimrod hoodie at college im gonna go mental, everyone has them, dookie is a great albumb, so is nimrod, greenday rock, but some of the mechandise is so widespread its unbeliveable, i saw a guy who looked about 10 wearin a papa roach hoodie the other day.

    i say if you can buy it at HMV then dont wear it

    good point about buying clothes at the HMV...

    Slipknot are, in MY HUMBLE FREAKIN OPINION, awful. I *have* (yes its true) seen them without their hoods on and they quite honestley look like the kids who got kicked out of the chess club at school for being too rowdy.

    The thing about them is that the disenfranchised youth have now become franchised. Do you really think the label signed them because of their talents? No. They signed them because there are a group of kids out there that dont really have anything to rebel against other than suburbia in general. Some clever people around a desk thought 'hey! that part of the market hasnt been touched since Black Sabbath'. The music isnt good. The idea behind it is.

    But whatever i'll just sit here and listen to Radiohead *laffs*.

    We have franchised the disenfranchised. I love Big Brother! Not the show you twats <IMG alt="image" SRC="http://www.thesite.org/ubb/wink.gif"&gt;

    I'm not a fan of slipknot but my mate is into all that music. I'm not gonna go dissing them or anything cos I haven't listened to their stuff so I can't have an opinion yet lol. But I think it's kewl when people are into different things.

    I love Slipknot, although I wouldn't wear their hoodies. Their stuff is the sort of thing I listen to when I've got violent PMT.

    haven't got Iowa, but will get it once I get paid from work.

    I don't about their music (haven't heard much of it, I approach nu metal very carefully, considering most of it sucks and all), but do we really need seven people in a metal band? I can buy five, considering four is the standard and all, but seven? Plus, playing oil barrels for drums sounds kinds pretentious to me. But hey, whatever floats your boat.

    Ermmm.. don't mean to be bitchy but Slipknot consists of nine members and 'the clown' plays personalised Metal beer kegs <IMG alt="image" SRC="http://www.thesite.org/ubb/rolleyes.gif"&gt; Get your facts straight before slagging them off.

    I own Iowa, only listened to it a few times but my fave songs are 'People=shit'and 'My Plague'. I really hate the last song 'Iowa', I can think of better things to do than listen to 15 minutes of boring crap with sea gull sound effects.

    I can understand why most people would find Slipknot utterly wanky, the whole boilersuit and mask thing is comical and if you read any interview with 'The Clown' you will realise he talks complete shit.
    Slipknot have become the choice band (as well as Linkin Park, Papa Roach and Limp Bizkit)in the Tater Skownie (aka..newbies, Skater Townies) culture, and this lowers their credibility (if they actually ever had any).

    I still like them though and can't wait to see them in November <IMG alt="image" SRC="http://www.thesite.org/ubb/smile.gif"&gt;

    slipknot isnt nu metal anyway. as it goes, i really hate the phrase "nu metal", it is totally meaningless and just another word for "pop" if you ask me. give me slipknot, black sabbath, or cradle of filth anyday...

    oh, and you might all slag slipknot off for their music/sound/look, but one thing you totally cannot diss them on is the lyrics on their new album, they have to be the absolute best i have seen or heard in ages

    Can't say I've ever listened to anything by Slipknot. Don't want to either.
    I prefer music you can dance to.

    I wouldn't say that townie skaters listen to slipknot, it's too heavy and they're more into Stinkin Park or Limp Wristed. A lot of them around here are fond of Marylin Manson and Papa Roach as well.

    I love to dance to Slipknot, a bit of moshing never hurt anyone (well, maybe it has, my friend nearly got his nose broken moshing). I guess it's all about personal preference.

    Okay, I understand you don't "mean" to be bitchy. But nine memebers are fucking worse than seven. And "persolaised" beer kegs seem even more pretentious than oil barrels. At least oil barrels are a *little* bit respectable. But, like I said before - what ever floats your fucking boat!

    You can dance to any piece of music. You just have to know how.
