    Fine. Be exclusionary. I'm just saying, when you need to loosen a knot quickly you'll wish you'd been more welcoming.

    Musically, I like what I've heard. Can't get past the (as I've seen it described) Cookie Monster growl vocals. His clean vocal sounds pretty good, but the growling immediately has me hitting the off switch. It's that way with all metal bands. I blame the 80s.

    Yeah Coreys cleans are somewhat better than his metal voice, but his metal vocals are pretty decent when it comes to Slipknot.

    I'm sure there are some fans here.

    They've had a few songs I've liked over the years, but for the most part, I've never been a huge fan. I was probably just a few years too old when they got popular. I think Jim Root is a stellar guitar player, but when I wanted to geek out with metal, they weren't quite what I needed. I was always more into faster stuff like thrash metal, death metal, power metal, etc. (I hate labeling metal with sub-genres so much but it's sometimes necessary to differentiate a band like Slipknot from a band like Revocation for example)

    Also, I'm not a fan of Corey Taylor's general attitude. He seems to be trashing a different band just about every week. Slipknot is far and away heavier than most mainstream music like Nickelback, but as far as metal goes, they're pretty tame, and certainly don't command the type of respect that he seems to think they do.

    Wait, what? They have a clown? Like, a stage prop like the dancing Bosstone? Or an actual clown as part of their entourage, with big shoes and makeup and a clown car?

    I'd pay a dollar to see that band suddenly bust out of a clown car, in their Scary Metal Costumes.
