  1. 1. Rating explanations down below

    • 10 - One of your very favorite artists of all time.
    • 9 - Killer fucking band. Or artist.
      0
    • 8 - Great sound, great songs, great albums.
    • 7 - Very good, but not quite great.
    • 6 - Pretty good. More than a few songs you like. You'd entertain the thought of seeing them live if they were in the area. Or still alive.
      0
    • 5 - They're okay, but maybe not something you'll go out of your way to listen to.
    • 4 - Meh. There may be a song or two, or an album that you dig, but you'd rather listen to other stuff.
    • 3 - Not very good. You will more likely than not turn the station if they come on the radio.
    • 2 - Not your cup of tea at all. Some people like this, but you are not one of them.
    • 1 - Horrible in every way.
    • 0 - In the running for worst artist/musician of all time. You would rather take a cheese grater to your face than listen to this.
  2. 2. Next week's artist?

I actually love Slipknot as well as Stone Sour. 8/10 from me. Pretty much enjoy all their songs. I push my fingers into my eyyyyyyes!

3/10, not my thing. Their lyrics are pretty much the embodiment of embarrassing edgy mega-angsty teenager music. And I've got that Linkin Park nu-metal nostalgia for similar songs don't get me wrong, but it's hard to go back to listening to stuff like this as an adult.

Also you missed their most classic song.

5.  Im a metal guy but I dont love most metal.  Stuff for me is pretty generic, but I get the appeal.  I remember hearing Wait and Bleed the first time and not liking that kind of metal cuz of the screaming.  But when Corey sang he had a good voice.  This was probably around 1998/9?  Corey Taylor and the other guitar player not Mick Thompson came into my old job when I was a guitar sales guy when they were doing Stone Sour around 2007.  Corey Taylor was really short but super friendly.  He came up to me with his hand out 'Hi im Corey', which told me he didn't have that star attitude.  He bought a Taylor 110 haha.  The other guy, oh Jim Root!  He was a bit of a jerk.  He wanted some cheap Gretsch guitar.  I remember our sales manager showing him the stores cost of it and what Jim wanted was below cost.  I dont think he bought it, cant remember.  I had that sale, where my coworker had Coreys and was smooth as silk.  I remember Jim said he was endorsed by Fender (which at the time was true, and Gretsch was owned by Fender).  So why not just get it from them?

Their debut album was halfway interesting for its time, but I've never been a huge fan. I feel like they wanted to be somewhere between Gwar and Marilyn Manson, but failed to be as entertaining as either.

I really like Slipknot, but I find that every album has maybe one to three good songs and not much else. I appreciate they're from Iowa and popular in Japan and the masks are a neat gimmick. 7/10.

8 and Durst.

I've seen them live a few times, it's really something to behold.   No idea how Joey or Jay didn't throw up in that rotating drum kit.   Or maybe they did; I've seen interviews where vomiting in their masks was a thing.

Based on the definitions, I have to go with 5.  I certainly don't dislike them, but I just never really go into their music despite the fact that I enjoy that style of music.  

 

Edit:  I always thought it was a cool band name for sure.

Could've sworn I clicked 8 and not 10, ah well lol

A great band and have some good songs that are just great to Jam out too, takes me back.

Can't say I dislike any of their songs, but they definitely prefer some songs over others.

Really been digging their newest stuff, Unsainted is great. Shout outs to "All Out Life" for being the theme to NXT currently (as well as a number of other songs being featured on NXT for a while now)

I like a couple of their songs and the cool masks, but that's about it.

One of the few band from their era that were any good and one of the few major rock bands that can still draw massive crowds. They also put on a hell of a show when I saw them over the summer.

Also, Rap Duo. Pete Rock & CL Smooth if possible

If I had been 15 when Slipknot was popular they would have been one of my favorite bands. Great band to piss off your parents.

I have no strong opinion about them either way.
