when ever the band "slipknot" is mentioned a bunch of people go on a rampage saying things like "slipknot fans are all fags" or "slipknot fans act like their tough but they are all idiots trying to act goth"

i mean i love slipknot but im not goth at all...on the contrary im quite far from it actually....i just dont see how people who talk bad about slipknot fans the way they do can say we are all fake badass' when all they do is talk **** themselves...

comments?

It's because Slipknot are like shandy - it's what you let kids have when you don't want to let them at the beer.

i have a friend who is awesome at bass and got accepted by Berkley and MI, and he likes Slipknot. personally, i hate them, because of the whole Maggot thing. whenever a band like Slipknot, MCR or ICP has like a cult following, i tend to hate them.

You just gotta realize some people are stereotypical idiots. Slipknot fans are not all any of the sort. I'm sure there are some gay slipknot fans but they probably aren't gay because of Slipknot, just because they like being on the receiving end and not the giving end. But i guess that's their business...

There just one of those bands that are cool to hate to show your metal elitism. Like MCR.

This.
All those metal elitists think that if a band gets too popular, you need to start hating them and calling all of their fans posers and whatnot. I personally don't see the point.

Our drummer is a huge slipknot fan and I'm fine with it as long as he doesn't try and force me to listen.

I'm not a fan of slipknot because I personally believe that their musicianship is deplorable. I think they are a "shock-rock" group, much like Alice Cooper and Marylin Manson, and I don't enjoy shock rock.

However, if others want to listen to them, I'm fine with it. I've had people bash me for listening to Hendrix (seriously, it happened at the first and last football game I attended) and I can't see the point in bashing someone for their musical taste.

I suppose its a way to make fun of people who are different from themselves. As you can see from my avatar I'm a fan of Slipknot, but I don't dress in Tripp pants and paint my nails black because that just makes you stand out in the crowd and gets you alot of attention which most of the time is negative attention.

If you want to be a metal elitist, you hate on a metal band.


If you're saying that Slipknot isn't a metal band, you just proved my point. If you mean my "like MCR" comment, I meant that they're popular to hate, not that they're metal, though it is mostly metal elitists that hate them to be cool.

I like Slipknot, don't get me wrong, i used to be a full on maggot at one point, all I'd do is listen to Slipknot, and it'd be Slipknot this and Slipknot that. But then i just kinda...well...grew up, and started listen to a specific kind of music. Slipknot kind of show and entire range of genres in themselves, and it's what i used as a younger person to find my own genre to listen to. A lot of people look at Slipknot as a bad life choice that they made whilst they were young. I personally can't wait for the new album in August (I think). But that's just my take on things.

And before you ask, my own favorite genre is Metalcore, and Slipknot sound quite similar to some Metalcore bands with the Vol.3 album....At least to me they do.

I like SlipKnot.

But, whenever people bring them up when talking about metal I get a little perturbed.

Or maybe because they dont like the music? I dont mind greenday to be honest, but Nickleback are the most bore inducing nirvana-wannabe radio friendly middle of the road bollocks I've heard recently and Slipknot is greasy greb music IMO.
