For a while now, I've noticed and ignored your blatantly incorrect use of the most common verbs in the English language. IS/ARE.
Slipknot are the worst band ever

INCORRECT
You are talking about one entity, the band "Slipknot". Therefore, it should be written:
Slipknot is the worst band ever

Another example:
Now that I'm high for the first time, I realize that Pink Floyd are geniuses

If you want to talk about the members IN Pink Floyd, then it should be:
Now that I'm high for the first time, I realize that the members of Pink Floyd are geniuses

And if you're talking about their songs:
Now that I'm high for the first time, I realize that Pink Floyd's songs are ingenius

Exceptions
The Jonas Brothers are great!

However factually incorrect this is, there is nothing wrong with the grammar. Although this is a single band, the band name is in the plural form, so "are" should be used.

Wow, maybe everybody on the forum isn't as brilliant of an English student as you are! I think there are much more annoying grammatical errors on the forum than mixing up is/are.

You are a goose-stepping fascist?


yup


and the thread isn't pointless, it's informative.

Quote by Eliyahu
what's the difference between Slipknot and Pink Floyd?!?!? Both are singular.


I know, I just used two different examples.

I personally use "is" because I grew up American, but the British use "are." Yes, to my ears it sounds incorrect, but it's correct in British English. Learn to live with it.

TS - stfu, it varies, depending on what country you're from. I, personally, hate to hear someone say "Slipknot rocks" or whatever. No, they are a collective and they rock, or whatever bloody band. Gahhh.

But seriously? Nobody ever cares, so feck it.

Considering that it's 14 pixels high (from what I can tell), and the bottom is 2 pixels, I'd say 14.3% full.
