The music has been the drug to keep me alive. Watch all you want guys....this little old Maggot loves you guys to hell and back. kingjacki 11/1/18 - 5:33PM I agree, ever since I started listening, it's as if listening to my problems disappear, I love Slipknot elivingstone 10/31/18 - 5:35PM I don’t think I could ever properly articulate how much slipknot has meant to me throughout the years. The concept of what a maggot is has stuck with me. Maggots turn into flys, and flys can fly away. I can stop feeding off hate and I can fly away. The music has been a much needed constant in my life and I don’t know what sort of emotional wreck I would be today if I didn’t have slipknot to see me through it all. Enough soppiness. I literally died today when All Out Life appeared out of nowhere. IT IS SICK!!!!!! troney995 10/31/18 - 6:49PM For my birthday this year my sister and I drove out from Blackhawk Co to the Slaughterhouse with the Tier 1 VIP packages to celebrate. Got to meet the band and having been a lifelong fan I pretty much marked out completely and was so damn nervous I didn’t say much (still pretty upset with myself, haha). Anyways, I had a blast, I’m glad you guys did something here in Iowa and am thankful for the pictures and stuff. Purchasing my tickets to the Iowa State Fair show the minute they go up for sale. Will be my first time going to a Slipknot show too. So, aside from this long screed I’m writing I just really want to thank the band and hope you guys see this. Much love, Tristan. failedkiller5988 10/31/18 - 6:56PM "we'll be watching" prove it, come at me bro! knubz1 10/31/18 - 7:31PM You guys have been an outlet for so many! The killer albums, the shows, the meaning behind it all.. just amazing! Can’t fucking wait for the rest! Ready for this tour. ashtonlyudo 10/31/18 - 7:39PM "We'll be watching". I sure hope so lol. I just wanted to thank you for all the music you've released--it's helped me through so many things. Honestly, I don't know where I'd be today if I hadn't had your music to as an outlet for everything that's happened in my life. Everything you've produced has been amazing and it has such meaning behind it--thank you so much. joshuathehorror518 10/31/18 - 7:56PM Back in June my world was ripped apart. My father committed suicide, the night he did it I was the last one to see him alive, and I knew something was off that night and my gut told me to stay with him, ths next day I received a call saying my Dad was dead. I can't help but feel guilty if I had just stayed maybe he would still be alive. It's not easy and I don't think it ever will be, the only thing that has helped me is your music , I just want to say thank you guys for doing what you do and helping me through this tough time. chicktaylor 10/31/18 - 11:45PM Hey just wanted to say I'm sorry to hear your story. Hope you are doing ok. You are not to blame in any way. jazza0624 10/31/18 - 9:38PM I have been absolutely rapt with how much Jay Jay & VMan have knocked it out the park since officially joining Slipknot. I desperately need to know. Will Jay & Alex get their patch numbers? The boys FUCKING deserve it. lilbob6769 11/1/18 - 1:07AM I am 43 been a metal fan since I was 13 and will be at 83 no doubt in the pit with a Cane!! I have had a pretty we’ll say colorful life, seen some things done a few more and with out a doubt without metal I would not be here!! I can say that I truly can listen and enjoy a little of every genre out there but man when a tune in the first 15 secs of hearing it and your like $&@@ yes how did you know what was in my head band how did you know comes around It makes it all worth living this crazy life that we all have!! Never doubt youngsters everyone you meet is kickin the hell out of one or more demons make sure you show respect to everyone you cross paths with or there demons may come lookin for you!! Keep this sh&$ goin!! Proud maggot What the &$@)is a blacklisted comment we are in America aren’t we!!!! livesticky 11/1/18 - 3:04AM i just wanna say this.....as best as i can type it in words slipknot is the best thing has ever happened to me i would not write here today just cuz i would had been dead so i owe everything to the knot... i feel like everytime slipknot sings live in front of them there should be other people to listen to their message not us maggots we should be behind the scene and the live show....slipknot does not need to prove a point to their fanbase like other bands or music artists and we should be just a frame.....so that if people dont get the message we should just show up as a frame the whole maggot army....hypothetically speaking tincher1134 11/1/18 - 11:07AM Thanks for the inspiration to destroy other cars on the track! Hell Cars demolition derby team Celina, oh thehumanewok 11/1/18 - 12:50PM Honestly, I haven't followed Slipknot that long, but I have so much to thank you for. Your music and the dedication of the members spurred me to form a band with my friends and inspire the music I write, even if it is horribly basic at this point. Jim and Mick really inspire me to improve my playing and my approach to guitar. I just hope my exams don't clash with Download this year so I can see you live for the first time. nemo22 11/1/18 - 4:31PM When it all builds up inside and I feel like I could explode because I just can’t get it all out of me without going completely fucking insane! Slipknot washes over me. Waves of madness crashing on the shores of discontent. I feel as though this little maggots soul is set free to vent it’s rage on the world. To soar free then return to the cage of my tattooed flesh. o24 11/1/18 - 9:52PM Slipknot's gotten me through the lowest points in my life. When my depression and anxiety rear their ugly heads, it feels like I've fallen into a pit. While other music just reminds me of what I don't like about my life, music like Slipknot's sits in that pit with me, talks with me, and helps me get out of that pit. And each time I get out of one, I get better and better at getting out of the next. I owe Slipknot my fucking life. slipknotdaniel 11/2/18 - 2:01AM Im still making slipknot replica masks, I really want to sculpt some new masks. Slipknot knows how to build anticipation. They surely deliver unexpected surprises to us. Can’t wait for them to do a US tour, I sorta miss the app but I signed up for an annual membership rlucas9937 11/3/18 - 12:04AM For me Slipknot's music has gotten me though being homeless due to an addiction, they've gotten me through when my dad passed away from a stroke and also when my uncle passed away from natural causes, their music was there every step of the way, wish I can see them live to let it all out but that will be a pretty penny to do it. But thanks for your music Slipknot looking forward to your new album NomadicSkeptic 11/3/18 - 11:58AM The music was something to grab ahold of while facing the challenges of everyday life. From when I first heard the blistering track of (SiC) back in 99 at 14 years old. To going through my first heartbreak at 16 during IOWA, which helped me a lot...I cannot express that enough. To Vol3. helping me with new challenges of a brutal and physically draining relationship, to All Hope is Gone when I didn't know where I was going in life. Paul passing in 2010 led me to believe all hope was really gone and I would be lost. To then hear The Gray Chapter come out exactly when I needed it in a new and beautiful relationship which I'm still in to this day. All Out Life was released exactly when I needed it, yet again, perfect timing for my own situations in life. Today I have 3 kids, 1 on the way, extremely successful with my business, a beautiful wife and never been better. I owe this success to Slipknot guiding me along the way. To seal the deal a few years ago to show my appreciation, I got Slipknot's tribal 'S' tatted on my forearm (exactly where Paul had his). Clown signed it years ago at the Mayhem festival. I love that I can just show him and other members without saying a word, and we know we are family. berniechan27 11/5/18 - 11:33AM damn ive been a fan for about 5 years which isnt long but you are a true fucking maggot sic_hawk 11/3/18 - 8:35PM If you make your way to Australia again.... Please come back to play in Perth, we miss having a show here!!!!!🍻🤘🤘 topaz2 11/4/18 - 9:02AM Slipknot 's music has helped me get through a lot hard times in my life. dominickondratowicz0 11/4/18 - 3:33PM I just want to say I remember a while back I had a phone call with Chris. He was at my grandpa's motorcycle club and when I called him I was ecstatic. I almost came to tears when I told him this band saved my life. I've been having a rough time mentally and on Halloween when they released "All Out Life" I cried. It felt like they came in at the right moment and saved my life once again. Thank you Corey, Chris, Shawn, Craig, Alex, Jay, Sid, Mick, and Jim. My dream is to come to my first concert and perform with you. Maggot for life brothers!!!! Thank you for everything. berniechan27 11/5/18 - 11:29AM i wish when were filling out the thing to pick our favorite member it would show joey and paul they may be no longer in the band but they are still apart of slipknots spirit slipknot isnt the same without its history and they are apart of the history uneven_waffle 11/5/18 - 1:44PM I know this has been said a million times, but really - thank you from the bottom of my heart - for everything! You're not just saving lives you're saving souls! xx awendysalmon 11/6/18 - 2:42PM You guys saved my life. I love you so fucking much!! syph 11/6/18 - 2:50PM Gotta say, the first time i heard the songs Before I Forget and Spit It Out, you guys blew my mind away. I've never heard any band with such a unique sound as Slipknot and I also am a fan of masks so this band is pretty much a good match for me. Keep up the great work and don't stop what you do. Love you guys! :D Eeyore27AOL 11/13/18 - 6:56PM Slipknot's music means everything to me. Its was I do when Im bored, when I'm pissed, sad, and have these other feelings that make me feel uncomfortable. Its gotten me through some times in my life that I would like to throw away and forget about forever, and its also a way I bond with friends, and I would have no idea where in my life I would be without you guys. So thanks for everything. dustinhxc 11/17/18 - 4:20AM I love you guys! Been a fan since the beginning! Bring knotfest back to Wisconsin and Iowa please! I just got my Slipknot tattoo! Please bring the OT9 app, this forum is hard to navigate on mobile. blood_eagle 11/17/18 - 3:46PM i miss joey blood_eagle 11/17/18 - 3:47PM joey jordison is a legend and in my opionion (not to diss the new guy) you guys should let him back in blood_eagle 11/17/18 - 3:48PM or u could do that thing the melvins did where you have the 2 drummers together missy245 11/20/18 - 2:30AM Slipknot's music has literally saved my life. It's been there for me through the most difficult times. I relate so much to the lyrics MissPiper 11/25/18 - 12:27AM Love you but hate the formatting of this website... specifically interactions with others... chat etc... it's horrible. .. makes it not worth bothering IMO.....But hope you are all well and had a nice thanksgiving. kidnot 11/28/18 - 9:47AM So I was saying clown needed to publish another book then I realized what better than a picture book involving all 9 members it's an idea based on the fact that something that is written can last a very long time if nothing surfaces like this then I would like to know where there is going to be another book signing by clown. The funny thing about clowns book is if it gets disfigured in time it doesn't matter because most of the interesting photos are of the abstract nature. If you don't have clowns book already I suggest getting it from your local book store it sheds light on what this man's vision of art really is shawn crahan the apocalyptic nightmare journey. qiu 2/1/19 - 9:18PM Is any one having issues downloading or even finding this app in the App Store? It says it’s not found in my country , being US. I had it on my other iphone suluco 2/2/19 - 12:21PM First off DOWNLOAD BABY!!!!!. Second off, the last time I saw Slipknot was Download 09 and before that a few times. Like many the music has seen me through some incredible and also some rough times, my accident being one of them. I can not wait for June when I will finally be able to health wise get back into a Slipknot crowd and have one helluva time. All I can say is bring it (I know your going :) ). androfsin 2/2/19 - 1:54PM Well guys, I hope your new album sucker punches my soul and has me wanting more. The soft stuff is alright, but I think it's time to let the beast come out and play. There's nothing wrong with every track being on 'All Out Life's level of intensity. Bring the rage and don't let up. I'd love that and wouldn't be the only one. rinsederycke 2/4/19 - 5:22PM Listening Slipknot is my stress outlet. Mainly music, but most preferably Slipknot and more preferably the album Slipknot. Ugh who am I kidding. Who doesn't f***ing like Slipknot by now? opium8 2/6/19 - 4:20PM I don't think I can put into words how much Slipknot's music means to me. It has helped me cope and deal with struggles and crap life has constantly thrown my way. I am forever immensely grateful for the music you create. Thank you. danbrindley 2/6/19 - 4:24PM Seen you guys way back in London, at the drink nightclub and Toronto, Ontario at the warehouse/government nightclub back to back with Kittie, was one of the best shows ever, truly electric. Life caught up with me and has thrown some curveballs, but I am back and better than ever, and cannot wait to see you guys again!!! snowwhitedreams 2/6/19 - 4:44PM Pumped for the new album blackstarchaos 2/6/19 - 8:03PM I have had a difficult life, and if I did not have music in my life I think it would be more fucked up. I have seen Slipknot 3 times that I can remember, and the feeling you get at a show is unbelievable. I had a chance to see a show again in 2014, but my mother passed away and I was just to down and out. I was also forced to work that night, my mother's husband was also my boss and he fucking hated me and kept my mom away from us as much as he could. Needless to say I lost everything my job, house and my wife just had a boy. We than became homeless and to move into a shelter which later forced out because of their conformist issues. We struggled to than we reached out to family and he was my wife's father. My wife had to daughters that moved in with us from Texas to Ohio. Living was cheaper and we needed to get back on our feet, a year later I found out my 7 yr old daughter was molested by that fucking monster. I wanted to kill him with my bare fucking hands. We got out as soon as the next day. My wife and I set him up to get arrested. He is in prison for 5 yrs because my little girl was to scared to testify. Every night I think and beat myself up thinking I could of done more. If it weren't for the music I listen to from Slipknot and others to let my rage out I would be in jail. Music is my life, though my neck is fucked and I can't head bang anymore and withmy body being wrecked from the truck that hit me when I was 11 yrs old on my birthday. We are here for something more because I should be dead! I love my kids and I hope they grow to love this band as much as I do. Life, is never giving up if you always try!!! mewithcreeps 2/9/19 - 10:40PM i never really fit in or felt apart of anything until i found self titled. changed my life. got me into the local music scene and pretty much everything and anyone i know in my life is because of slipknot rocknroro666 2/10/19 - 2:52PM First time I ever listened to Slipknot I was only 15 years old. I had no idea what to think of this band's music other than it's dirty, raw, aggressive, unfiltered, unsettling and energetic as fuck. It was like no other metal band I listened to and to this day I still consider them one of, if not the greatest metal act of all time. Slipknot is such a huge reason I want to be in a band, so I can be the outlet for other people the same way they are for me. chiz13 2/11/19 - 7:28PM SLIPKNOT HAS BEEN ONE OF MY FAVORITE BANDS SINCE I FIRST HEARD THEM IN THE SUMMER OF 99 SEEN THEM 6 TIMES AND STOKED FOR THE NEXT SHOW, HANDS DOWN MY FAVORITE LIVE BAND OF ALL TIME AND I'VE LISTENED TO THE ALBUMS SO MANY TIMES I CAN NAME EVERY TRACK IN ORDER INCLUDING THE DEMOS NO OTHER BAND REALLY DOES IT FOR ME LIKE SLIPKNOT AND EVERY TIME THEY HAVE A NEW ALBUM COMING OUT I GET CRAZY BUTTERFLIES THINKING HOW GREAT THE SHOW WILL BE LIVE, CHEERS ALL Y'ALL meagansic 2/12/19 - 3:23PM You're watching me? Reply or didnt happen. OT9Admin 2/12/19 - 5:45PM 742617000027. Panzertomate 2/15/19 - 5:38AM Slipknot helped me through hard times. it was allways good to focus myself and deal with all the shit. its just great what music can do to you. Slipknot is a symbol for me, for being able to cut motherfuckers out of your life and go on. As a sign of what this band did to me, i got a big tattoo on my back to remember hard times and what you can make out of it if you listen to slipknot ;) i just love you guys! i hoped so much to win the lyrics :"-( hopefully you do something like this again soon. see you in switzerland! cant wait! abizzle1420 2/15/19 - 10:27AM I've been a fan of this band ever since the debut release in 1999. It wasn't until 2002 where I witnessed one of the most chaotic sets in history of heavy metal music. No other show has ever been able to top that night. I don't know where I would be without this music, it has got me through some of the most fucked up times in my life. A voice for the voiceless and a force that speaks like no other. A top 10 band for sure and an influence on me as a guitar player. Once again had to throw on the 1st album and it's been on repeat for the last 2 weeks. I would give anything to hear that 1st album performed in it's entirety.
