It’s been almost five years since The Gray Chapter, and with We Are Not Your Kind hot off the press, followed by an incoming 2020 European tour, we maggots have plenty to be excited about.
From being nine angry lunatics in masks causing a ruckus in Iowa, to headlining stadium tours and festivals across the world, Slipknot have been on some journey since their inception in 1995. Along this road, the band have released albums of differing commercial success across a diverse musical style.
To mark the release of We Are Not Your Kind, it’s time to look back at some of the heaviest hitters in Slipknot’s arsenal. For first-time listeners, these tracks will offer you an insight into who Slipknot are, and what they’re about.
For lifelong fans, you’ll know each of these have earned their place, but I look forward to your angry comments about which tracks didn’t make the cut.
This list could be three times the size and would still be difficult to filter down, but these ten songs have certainly earned legendary status amongst Slipknot’s discography.
Angry, quite possibly drunken, Scotsman who shouts at TV shows and movies when they don't go his way. Pessimistic and cynical lover of video games. Fantasy football extraordinaire. I haven't followed wrestling since 2005 so, for the love of god, please don't @ me. (Unless you follow me first. I need to work on my Twitter cred.)
