Uh, what? Slipknot is not a bad band perse, but I really cannot call them the biggest or greatest band by any means. I find it kind of funny how he refers to a 9(?) person band as a singular artist as well. I just feel there are many other artists/bands out there more deserving of such a title, though I would be hard-pressed to place that title on any one of them. There are just too many.

@cppchriscpp that may be true, but slipknot is still a huge force to be reconed with in the metal world regaurdless of if they're deserving or not. and besides, its still really sad to see a metal artist pass away like this. i just dont understand why it cant be all the rappers that are getting killed off, at least then thatll leave the air open for actual musicians to prosper.
