...for a Slipknot unappreciation thread. In my very very humble opinion, Slipknot are an uninspired bunch of ridiculously clothed and masked losers. They write their music to be easily digested, rough and rebellious so as to appeal predominantly to young teenagers who want to be "different", "individual" and "tough". Teenagers have an added benefit of being easily influenced to buy your records and merchandise no matter how crappy everything is. Okay so I have a tiny bit of respect for their cunningness on that part. But now, they have done something so lame that it even suprises me. Just like Spiderman, Pokemon and the Teletubbies, they now have their own brand of shoes. As you can see they are completely in line with modern fashion. Nothing individual about them. To read the fans' reactions on this is even more saddeningly hilarious. I mean, come on. That's pathetic. I finally found one thing more lowly than slipknot: their fan-base. The word maggot says it all. And yes, the one commenting as Christcrusher is me. I know I shouldn't bitch about people but I couldn't quite resist this temptation. Sorry.
