Slipknot, Gayness and the Media

This is a new Slipknot video clip.

What? Has the world gone mad? FBS is posting a video of a band that 'Tabs loves to hate the most?

Yes.

But why? Doesn't he hate them? Didn't he once call them "a pack of rectal mistakes, a cabal of whining low-grade baboon spelunkers and another symptom of the talentless stool-pit masquerading as the music industry"? Of course he did. So what's going on?

You won't like the fucking music - but bear with me and watch the video clip anyway. This is the most beautifully clear-cut example of a band going media-friendly you will ever, ever see.

The phrase 'sell-out' is often bandied around by dickless E-teens whose brains are confused by riff patterns more complicated than long-distance telephone beeps, and as such it is almost redundant. But in this case, there is absolutely no other word for it. This is a long, hard, 10-inch sell-out.

The sound has changed, significantly. What little distortion existed has been completely cleaned out, the riff structure broken down even simpler, the heavier basslines and double-kick snipped and replaced with the rhythm section of an average hard-rock band. All their stupidy faggotty masks have been replaced with the only things stupider and faggier - the faces behind them. In the clip, they are hanging up and portrayed in distance shots, as if the band has 'grown' and matured. All shot in white light, beautifully clean and close focus. It's about as metal as a plank of wood. What tripe.

But the lyrics, OH DEAR SPIKE-FUCKING JESUS, the lyrics! Goodbye to the significantly bad teenage angry-screamy lyrics, and hello to the EVEN WORSE teenage emo-self-fellation lyrics! Even the song title - "Before I Forget"... puking retch! Just LISTEN to the damn song. You'll see what I mean.

If you thought Slipknot were irritating dolphin-molesting pustules before, they have now become officially one thousand times worse.


P.S. Watch yourself. At least read the above before posting the inevitable "T3h slipzz SuX0RZ!!!!_1" shit.

No need for me to see that video again, thank you, but I concur. They have always been about the money imo, and so this video and the way they sounded is just prolonging what eventually happened to the boyband/KoRn/Limpdick era. I can't blame them for trying to make just a little more money because when it is over for them where will they get jobs?

Go Dicksnot Kill yourself slowly for our enjoyment.

Slipknot always sucked to begin with, I don't care that they had some good moments, their faults in their playing was that they never tried to be original or have their own specific sound like other bands do, either that or they tried to be TOO original. Shit, Stone Sour was fucking better than Slipknot and they had their own genre to play in.

And hell, they play in B too. So if you're playing in B you better play some fucking heavy shit, not a youth-antham.

Actually features some pretty decent singing by Correy Taylor. Just like FBS said, very clean cut. This is the work of pros, man. It's marketing genius is what it is. While the tr00 slipknot fans will probably get turned off by this, the mainstream media and audiences will embrace it and caress it like a little baby.
There's like maybe three riffs in the whole song, andoneof 'em consists of just picking the top string open, sounding really gay.
There was an Elton John video that came on after this that had some much better riffs and actually had some solos.

"GO!" HAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHA. That "go" was like some dude screaming GO! to his dick when he can't get it up.

Oh fuckin' dear, the opitomé(sp?)of angst-teen music finally falls an age to the pre-masturbation audience.

There's my two cents.(Literally, I did burst my splein laughing at the tediousness of that "go")

Well, well, well. If they weren't nu-metal before, they most certainly are now.

Yes, i'm ditching the arguement about them being metal. Any previous work deemed "ok" by me has been withdrawn.
