Slipknot And Mushroomhead To Tour Together?

Facebook proves to be a driving force behind making big things happen once again.

Recently in the world of Facebook, big things have been happening. Just under a month ago, a few fans of both bands decided to make a group to try and get some attention to their cause - making a Slipknot and Mushroomhead tour to happen.

The results have been far greater than they could have imagined. Jeffrey Nothing of Mushroomhead got wind of the effort at some point early on, and has personally been posting on Mushroomhead's official facebook page about it. The link to the Facebook group can be found here.

In just over 3 weeks, the group has gotten over 14,000 members and it's growing by an average of 500 new members per day. This says a lot, considering up until only a few years ago, the fans of both bands had an imaginary "feud" between them, which was basically just started and fueled by the media to generate tension and therefore news worthy stories about the bands.

Even Corey Taylor is on board with the idea. He can be seen here talking about the long dead feud, and the possibility of a tour between Slipknot and Mushroomhead with GWAR and Mudvayne on as well during a Q&A session after a set on his solo tour in Sayerville, NJ.

WARNING! This video contains quite a bit of naughty language.

A few notable things to mention is that Jeffrey Nothing (as stated before) is a very active member of the group himself and has been posting almost non-stop on Mushroomhead's own Facebook page about it (which can be found here). He has also notified the group that he has spoken with Oderus of GWAR and they are on board with it and would do it if, or rather when, it happens. He is also trying to get Chad Gray to agree to getting Mudvayne on as well, but progress on that is slow and steady.

Show your support and make great things happen, join the group!

    I amazed there aren't more Spliknot messages. Anyways the feud wasn't imaginary. It was very real between the bands. They hated each other. When Paul died, they Mushroomhead reached out to Slipknot, and they worked things out, but don't say it was imaginary.

    did any one else notice that the misspelled slipknot in the first paragraph is a typo and should be ignored?

    Theatric? Is that real genre of metal?

    I'm just shocked this hasn't already happened and is apparently a big deal?

    No, the feud was complete bullshit. The bands have stated repeatedly through the years that they had nothing against eachother. You watch the news too much. It's people like you who fuel stupid shit like that.

    Lol. You dropped Mudvayne. They could easily play with Slipknot alone instead of shitty Mushroomhead and GWAR.

    here's an idea, if you're writing a ****ing news article for a website with a very active community a) proof read your ****ing shit, it doesn't take long. b) if you're too damn lazy to proofread, accept the shots that you are going to take, UG users won't cut you any slack. sort your shit out

    Copy of Slipknot because of the masks and they make shitty, boring industrial metal. (nothing against industrial metal)

    That is false because Alice Cooper is not included

    You do realize Mushroomhead were doing it 2 years before slipknot even existed, right?

    "Slipknot's management want to see around 500,000 members in the group before they'll consider signing onto it" Where did this info come from?

    some kid at work was amazed that i liked slipknot and not mushroom head, i just think their douchey personally, nothing against them

    I gotta say I bet this would be a damn good concert, considering both of them put on a pretty good show. Always been a fan of both of them, not so much Mushroomhead after they lost Jmann, but they're still decent.

    woah this would be like the white trash metal tour. Just throw in some nickel back and disturbed to spice things up.

    slipknot is actually pretty good. i understand that some people dont like them, but they dont deserve all the hate they get.
    catastrofx617
    Yeah, I must say, the 14 year old metalhead in me is chomping at the bit for this tour to happen. They all used to be some of my favorite bands when I first started getting into heavy music.

    Mudvayne should get back together, even though Hell Yeah is a decent band
    FirstMateJepeto
    Frickin' old news. Though I think it would be a great show for all of their fans.

    I doubt we could call it that way...

    Joined just now. It's like a childhood dream being realized. These days I'm much more into groups like Scar Symmetry etc. But this would be the best nostalgia trip ever.

    I would die. If this is what it takes to turn Mudvayne around, I'm behind it all the way. Mudvayne has saved my life, literally. I'm tired of that HellYeah bullshit.

    Nice one! At least Slipknot is performing again. I remember one of their first performances, after Gray's death, was really slow... the music wasn't right. Hopefully they'll be as good as they were in downloads (2010?). Great news though =)

    Slipknot isn`t douchey?

    Well, this would of been AWESOME 4 or 5 years ago. JMAN is no longer with Mushroomhead, and apparently Gravy and Pig Benis left also - so Mushroomheads lineup isn't anything like it use to be. A tour like this would have been absoluetly epic to me when I was in highschool.

    Oh and I don't get why Corey is hated on UG... Those who do the useless articles on him deserve the hate, not Corey. Like he talks all this 'bullshit' you say, but who's brought it to our ears? eh? Those who do the articles. Don't trash Corey for having freedom of speech if you're one of those guys...
