You really can't change a person's thoughts on music, especially with a band like Slipknot. They're your parents, so you're kinda screwed. Sorry dude.
mmmk.

Well then, it's not really an issue with Slipknot, is it. The issue is more with your parents.

The only solution I can think of is for you to kill your parents, feed their bodies into a paper-shredder, and live off of their remains.

But be careful, because after you kill them, you'll probably quickly find out about better bands, and then you'll have to live with your regrets.


Oh, and try the Slipknot thread.

why did your parent hate them...??

they hate them because of the way they look thats all, but the funny thing is that i play really hard stuff with my bands and they don't care, but when it comes to listening to metal they can be really stupid.

i know,but there is something that i hardly to explain to you guys. its occured in my country. ok,i try to explain to you all,..

limb bizkit & slipknot started to be a "band with many fans" in my country in 2000/2001. but in the same year,something stupid that black metal guys/kids done. well,you kow that black metal guys doesnt accept religion right? so those stupid black metal guys made something that against religion,they're not respect any erligion & belief..so,started from then,any metal music will be misunderstood..you know why..

slipknot are atheists thus most parents from a christain backround will have a slight distaste for them which i can understand, they do promote some sacreligious messages in their music, im not really into slipknot, but i did have a strong basis in christianity, but i will say they are very talented musicians, but slipknots music doesnt showcase that in the best light

When I was watching my Disasterpieces DVD with my Dad, he saw the pentagram light up on Joey's drum deck when he was doing his solo, and my dad was just like, "Is that a pentagram?" I say, ".... yeah?" "I don't like that."

There's really nothing your parents can do, except maybe lock you in your room, send you to boarding school, or drug you and make you their slave child.


Too many parents, or people for that matter, who still believe music makes people do crazy stuff. Your parents probably still believe that there are satanic messages in black sabbath and LEd Zepplin records when played backward.

I'm not a fan of Slipknot (some songs are catchy, but other than that, BLEH), but that aside, you've got to convinve your parents that most of the satanic imagery is just for show, which it actually is. They don't have to like your music, but as I said, there's nothing they can do to stop you (short if the extremities I mentioned); forbidding these days doesn't work anymore.

Best thing, I think, is to have a constructive argument with your folks, going point to point why your listening to metal (nu-metal, to be specific!) won't affect your character drastically; you won't lock yourself in your room, listen to "Suicide Solution," and kill yourself; you won't hot iron brand an upside-down cross into your forehead; you won't do anything stupid. Key word, though, is constructive. Don't go shouting and yelling when your parents still insist in flaunting their arrogance because you'll just come off as an immature anst-driven child, making your argument less credible.

very well said, show them their acoustic songs maybe? then your parents might see the lighter stuff acceptable and eventually won't care.

Better solution: Explain to them in a mature, non- aggressive way that the music you listen to is the music you listen to. They have no power to change it and although the music you choose to listen to is more "aggressive and blatant" to what they are used to reassure them that this will not have an effect on your personality.

slipknot's pentagram...i dont think their petagram means anything but just to symbolized that the band have nine members in it.

played backward..i dont think they recorded it on purpose

Really, the pentagram could mean anything you want it to.
If your parent's absolutely hate the music you listen to, you've got the two obvious options;
a.) Keep listening, **** them.
b.) Appease them, stop listening to Slipknot.
Done.

i do that too..know,my parents not really care much about what music i heard. but sometimes my mother blabbering about it
#22
the really funny thing is that they don't care about Korn, Killswitch Engage, Children Of Bodom and all the other metal bands i listen to, but slipknot its just no. i do still listen to them and learn their songs just i don't get why every other band it cool, but slipknot is all bad. like i said before, i think its the masks. i don't know thanks you all so much for your help!

If they hate them for their looks tell them that the singer (Corey Taylor) is the singer from Stone Sour, and then show a picture of him in Stone Sour, that should take care of one of the members. You're on your own for the rest of them. Look for pictures of the band without their masks. Trust me there's plenty of pictures online.

edit; just remembered James Root is in Stone Sour too, show a picture of him without the mask to your parents.

Well one, Slipknot is horrible, get into real metal.
Two: If your parents don't like Slipknot it shows they have a good taste in music
Three: Show them way worse material them gay ol' mainstream slipknot (give them a black metal history lesson) Just type in Burzum story or Mayhem Story, that will get them )
Last of all again, get into the good shit

Slipknot just strike me as being some stupid gimmick band. Stone Sour > Slipknot.

Anyway, I wouldn't jeapordise your relationship with your parents over some stupid band.

have them read this and then compare to Slipknot and say your not listening to stuff like this like CaptainOfSmug, then they will be like "oh yay, your not listening to the evil stuff then"
Problem solved.

Well, if i were your parent, i wouldn't want you listening to Slipknot either. Hell, i'm not even your parent and i don't think you should listen to them.
I'm so damn jealous of myself.

Hah, I was just looking at that before when that guy dropped a link to Euronymous' wikipedia article (I think that's his name). I decided to do some research on Mayhem, as I'd heard that the lead singer committed suicide and it was a bit messed up. Then I read about the band members taking photos of his corpse and send bits of skull to bands. That creeped me out. It's kinda terrible that they had to make that their album cover, it was against the band's will, too.
