^^ What are you? Fifteen? There is nothing about Slipknot that is pure. Other than the song "Purity" which had stripped a story off of a fake crime website, and stolen samples, so, yeah, I guess THAT'S not too pure, either.

Slipknot is nu-metal that won't die. I mean, come on. Even SOAD knew when to call it quits.

And as far as albums that beat Slipknot's:

anything.

Well generaly speaking about 98 percent of nu-metal fans who have no real argument as to why they like a nu-metal are teens. I doubt that CTJJ is some pedophile (by the way that is how you spell it,) but that he is just simply asking how old they are. How you have made the assumption that he wants to f*** them is beyond me.

fair enough! but keep in mind that band genres change. take as i lay dying for example. their early sh** is hardcore and now they are considered metal or metalcore, so all im saying is it can be hard to define a band by genre. Yes it only takes a little effort to find out, but most metal bands will also disagree with what genre we classify them in. korn doesnt even consider themself metal and i m pretty sure there is a munky quote stating that they dont just wanna be a Metal band and that they dont like being classified as so. also i mean personally i listen to metal, death metal, groove metal , metal core, nu- metal nintendo metal , hardcore and the list goes on... generally when some one asks me what kind of music i like i tell them im a metal head, i dont get all specific genre on them, i mean who really cares anyway what kinda metal anyone likes? to me as long as theres distorted guitars, and screaming/singing i call it Metal. and i will not make another comment about the age thing so long as i dont see that used as another baseless example of why texas crawford jingo jackoff is right as compared to some little kid, i mean seriously who gives a sh** how old anyone is, what does it matter?

lol at post 36

Slipknot needs to stop it. just stop it. I'm sick of them. The only plus side to them existing is, once they are gone, there will be a power vacuum in the pop-metal world, that may get filled with some even more revolting. As a slipknot fan, I want them to give up already. I can barely stand any of their music anymore. Eyeless is pretty much the only song of theirs i will actually sit and listen to anymore without just getting p***ed off at the mediocrity of it all.

Lol at Tx still flamming people online with his bigotry. Why does it mean that I'm responding for dark funeral (instead of myself) when I point out the statement of an obvious immature trend kid. I'm not allowed to hate it when kids write messages like " 'insert any goddamn name you like' you suck balls your probly some f***ing loser with no life just wach b**** slipknot will come threw" and come up with a response? Dude nobody really gives a sh** what bigot social worker from TX has to say (than again nobody probably cares what an 18 yr old bag boy from VA has to say either). Dude don't even bother responding because I refuse to respond to anything you post, I'm not putting up with your intolerance (and I'm willing to bet $100 that your a conservative) so f*** off and go suck W's d***.

BTW while I love BM I don't really give a damn what you think about it.

Conservatism and metal should not even mentioned in the same sentence. I love metal because I am what is called a non-conformitist.

Your using the term as a synonym for narrow-minded which is of course tripe. To put it more broadly - I'm (and cruor I'm sure to) is a musical elitist. I don't respect sh**, mainstream, boring, manufactured music, be it jazz, classical or pop. It just so happens metal is my favorite favourite genre and the only one I discuss here.

I will answer one question for you. You are a bigot because you have little tolerance of the opinions of the people pro-marijuana (as viewed in the Bruce D. thread when you just attacked people for their opinions unprovoked) and because your intolerance of people responding to noobies, you say I'm attacking the noobies but I say I'm pointing out the stupid posts. By the way I don't give a sh** what people listen to, in fact I welcome people who have different opinions than me whether it be rap; house; techno; or country, but I hate posts like post 46. I'm not giving you anymore.

"corey taylor should just hang himself and make the world a better place."

Dude I hate Slipknot also but that has to be one of the most f***ed up things you could say.
