Band Name Origins:

  • On the first Slipknot tape, Mate.Feed.Kill.Repeat., which came out before Corey Taylor was the singer, there was a song called Slipknot, which (sic) evolved from. The band decided to name themselves after the song. Submitted by: Jaxson Shickler
  • Regarding them naming themselves after a stone called "Slipknot". It was the other way around. From an interview with that author: "A recurring theme in your stories is an allusion to the music you listen to. Sometimes this is subtle, done in word choices, sometimes more blatant and dramatic, such as the story in "From the Borderlands", "Slipknot." In addition to being a writer, you also play drums in the band, The Diablo Red. How would you describe your personal relationship to music and how it affects your writing? Music is very important to me. I mostly listen to dark, aggressive music, so the lyrics and the subsequent emotions upon hearing them naturally creep into my fiction. The piece you mention in FROM THE BORDERLANDS is called "Slipknot" because of a line from a song called "(sic)" off their first album: "You can't kill me 'cause I'm already inside you." This line stuck in my head for years until one day I got the idea for the story that resulted. The tale actually opens with that exact line. Submitted by: dvVIII

The Inappropriate Lyrics:
Uhhhhhhhhhhh. I wanna slit your throat and **** the wound.
Why They're Inappropriate:
Most of their other songs are not death metal, and they aren't usually that heavy. But their the sickest band out there that ever lived. Ever since they came out with the subliminal verses they aren't as heavy but who cares they are always good.

Scary Song Lyrics:

The Lyrics:
I wanna slit your throat and fuck the wound
I wanna push my face in and feel the swoon
I wanna dig inside, find a little bit of me
Cuz the line gets crossed when you don't come clean
the shear gore of the lyric especially with it being the first lyric.

"My Plague"
The Lyrics:
You f*ckin' touch me and I'll rip you apart
I'll reach in and take a bite outta that sh*t you call a heart
Just...ew. Plus that stirs up all kinds of unpleasant images, doesn't it? That being said, the song is still kinda cool.
